This is a Digital Painting done with some vector drawing.
This painting was taken from Amanda Cotton’s photograph “Into the Mix”. however, there is NO photograph used in the art it self, it started off a blank file. These are Lemon sharks feeding off of bate tossed over board.
This was a very hard project for me as I have never done an underwater theme before nor have I ever painted a shark.

Both Amanda and I LOVE sharks, but she took it one step beyond me, she swims with them and photographs them to help show people that they are not the monsters Hollywood has made them to be.

this work has also been donated to
Amanda Cotton
for the preservation of all sharks.
