Out there in the deep…

A blue shark, in blue biro. That worked out quite nicely didn’t it? I was asked to draw a shark and here he is. I don’t really think he looks ferocious but I’m sure he’s a swift and agile predator. 
I’ve recently decided that I don’t draw in blue pen enough, it suits certain subjects perfectly and makes them glow with electricity (which is just what I look for in creatures of the deep). This is quite a simple sketch really but there’s something about the bleak, stark page with the shark hovering there. Brings to mind The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall. I like backgrounds, setting a scene, creating shadows…but sometimes, there doesn’t need to be a narrative. And am I really going to argue with this guy?
