I participate in a doodle group on Facebook and one of the weekly topics was "land shark". I couldn't stop myself from going past a doodle for this one. I'm looking to make a few more since I can't stop thinking about how awesome Pacific Rim is.
I created this piece as a challenge in composition and rendering. It ended up taking about a year as I had actually reworked the composition many times over utilizing what I learned from the Imaginism Workshop. The painting style evolved from techniques learned at the workshop as well.
