A Rare Observation by KatieHofgard A Rare Observation by KatieHofgard
A full illustration commission for Kardi Corgi, of her unicorn character Lloyd enjoying some time in an aquarium tunnel. The shark is a sort of mutant between a tiger shark and a sand tiger shark, and there's a few ceolacanth's in there too. Whew, this was a challenge!

21 hours in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

it's gonna suck when he has to sneeze and hits the glass with his horn. The tiger shark'll be happy though XD

I like this a lot. :) The only thing more fitting would have been a narwhal instead of the shark. But still, awesome, and better than I could see myself doing anytime soon.

The lighting effect in this work is totally amazing. I also enjoy the highlights on the rocks in the aquarium.

This is just perfect in every way, but I especially love the back of his neck. Anthro horses' heads are kinda confusing...

I'm seeing quite a few prehistoric fish. This is really beautiful I would swear this was something that was put in an art gallery if you just showed me the picture elsewhere.
