  • Thumbnails. Love this part! Getting myself a nice cappucino and a slice a carrotcake from my favorite coffee place. It is a ritual and it works. OK, enough about that! Let's start the breakdown!
  • I decided to go with the blood dripping from the sharks teeth, cause that one I find the most frightening. If y'all didn't know, I am TERRIFIED of sharks! FYI: I had to take a lot of breaks while creating the art piece.
  • So I started with just the teeth. The first idea was that you only see the teeth in the comp.
  • Then I started adding the blood and started to realize that I have to show more of the outline of the shark.
  • Now we are getting somewhere! 
  • Lets now add some more red and black splatters on the background.
  • Now maybe add some grey.
  • Voila! Just got scared to DEATH!!!
