Just getting some ideas popping. Small WIP.



Little update on sharks:



As for the fisherman and all the eventual additional details, I thought about going the monochrome way. Maybe it'll be easier to add more fine details.

More AA and color adjusting:

It's... just a shark. A shark with unpolished shading and line jaggies that I'll finish last (it's not too difficult me thinks).
I may or may not finish this. Anyways, any suggestions/tips on polishing the shading to make it look nicer?

Maybe less contrast? I dunno, it feels like he's made of metal. Adjusting shapes would help as well, I think.

Is this better?
I'm not sure what to do with shapes though (as in, I dunno how would I adjust them). Any tips on that as well?

Slowly coming together, really having problems with the shading, I thought the more you do the easier it becomes....



Not sure if I should do a background, I think it'll look a bit odd without one as it really isn't a sprite. perhaps I'll try some illuminated water.

In all the references I've looked at the tail looks a bit odd, which I'm assuming is due to movement, should I keep it like this or go how out brains think it should be drawn?

Maybe redrawing the upper part of the tail in a more "curvy" shape?

The tail fin should be vertical. Sharks have vertical tail fins while dolphins and whales have horizontal tail fins.

A few pudgy sharks I started on:




I haven't done any AA or shading, but I'm not quite sure where to start.

@eruditespirit - Depends on what you want to do. Are you doing a game mock up, sprite or caricature? If you are doing a bigger scene you should probably lay that out first, then choose your base colours and do highlights and shadows then when the colour is sorted you can work on AA

I like the top one most of all and judging by the emphasis you've placed on that one you like it too. :)

@Khao: if this a great white shark, it may help to remember that his nose points quite a bit, and it would change the form of the side of his snout to be a little more pointed.

Take a look this side view of a great white:
