Never compromise - a shark who said "fuck you" to evolution

No drawings today, but look at this clip I just found on YoutTube! A new video of a prehistoric shark! Isn't that just the cutest animal you've ever seen? After penguins, of course. Awww can you see how its teeth are almost nonexistent and how it's never going to get a proper bite? Keep your kittens and puppies, next Christmas I want one of these. A sixgill shark like in this video or a frilled shark.

"A sixgill shark—a species often referred to as prehistoric because of its resemblance to sharks living hundreds of millions of years ago—is seen biting on bait at a camera trap deep off Australia. It's part of a project to learn more about deep-sea creatures and possible correlations with human sight and brain development."

Someone gets to study sharks AND human brain? That must be the best job ever. I bet the lucky bastard gets to ride dinosaurs at work too.

In fact, this is almost a relevant and art related post. Prehistoric sharks are one of the things that got me into drawing. Someone linked this video (from 2007, never mind the idiotic female voice calling tha shark ugly, can't you see it's obviously trying to smile and be as presentable as an old sick shark can be when you go bothering it with a camera) on the Entervoid forums and started a long picture thread of weird sea animals, so while following the conversation I also got into the whole Entervoid-thing and thought I might take drawing seriously and maybe one day be even 10% as awesome as James Stokoe (I found Entervoid through his work - his Deviantart account is here but unfortunately the last updates are fom 2008), whose new comic book, "Orc Stain" is out soon. Just a little commercial break here.

Helle vaarantaa vesivärimaalaukset

Practising with watercolours. Thankyous to Pilvi for helping me find masking liquid and to Tir-ri and her awesome watercolour walk-through which I've wanted to try for ages.

I made this about a month ago but forgot to post it. So, here it is, then. Inspired by the Jekyll & Hyde movie they made in the 30s. The stroy is simple yet haunting and has been my favourite horror story since I was 14.

Nyt lienee heinäkuu, eikö?

This blog has been rather dead lately due to an illustration thing I'm working on, a school project and social life (not lying, shut up).
Meanwhile, be entertained by other dead things:
