Finally posting to this site after lurking for several years, woohoo!

For the Shark Week challenge. Almost every week for the last 6 months or so I've either thought about or started a weekly challenge piece without finishing it, so I'm glad I was finally able to get something submitted.

This was my first finished attempt at something resembling Cubism and using geometric shapes to construct an image, it was really fun!

8 colors + transparency.

This should be on a sweater! Neat design.

Thanks for the comments!

The shine on the eyes was a bit of a last-minute decision. Originally I wanted the eyes to just be black to give the impression of dead void eyes, but the piece seemed more diffiult to read (which I understand could be beneficial to an abstract piece). Ultimately I decided to just go with the shine to both make the piece more readable and create a bit of cute / creepy contrast. Honestly I'm still kind of on the fence about it but I'll probably just keep the shine for now since I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to edit this until after the challenge?

might  be better off without the shine in the eyes

An original take on the challenge. I like the patterns you've used to fill the shapes.
