Another Shark Snippet Plus A Deck of Cards Challenge

© Sylvia Liu

A snippet from the second infographic, on the oceanic white tip shark.

Also, here's my new thought for 2016: at least once a week, I would like to come up with an image that can be part of playing card (like queen of hearts, two of spades, etc). At the end of the year, I'll have enough images for a full deck. I'd like to stick to a theme, at least for each suit, like birds, sea creatures, cephalopods, or imagery from one of my stories.

What do you think? Any interest in adding this to your list of illustration challenges?

Gold Copper Dragon Stamp Effect

I've been experimenting with creating textures and came up with this stamp-like effect of a dragon, that I will overlay onto a dragon I am working on. I forget how fun Photoshop can be.
