Stir The Waters

Let's stir the waters a bit and see what pops up! This shark is doing a little water stirring of his own. The word of the week for Illustration Friday is "stir". The final piece is the textured version. For those curious to see my process I've also included the non-textured version, the first shark I illustrated before I decided I wanted it to have a more cartoon-stylized look, and also the inked version before coloring. And finally, I did a short animation because I wanted to see him really come to life.

UPDATE: This shark is available at my online shop, The Digi Street, as a digital download for your personal craft projects. Click the image below to take you to that product's page.


  1. Excellent stuff, love the build up to the final image. Thanks for the comment.

  2. I'm in agreement with Duncan!
    Thanks for this Andy! I love your work and this post inspired me with ideas in how to push my own work further.
    Thank you.

  3. Thanks to you both. I really appreciate the comments.

  4. I love the look of the water/waves. Very nice!

  5. I love the final textured piece. You just keep getting better, and I don't know how that is possible since I think you are already amazing.

  6. Great colours and style, I love it!
