When i was a kid, i imagined a lot of things, some of them friends. Most of those friends were animals, some of them cheetahs. I love/d cheetahs. This was an assignment for a class, i threw some color on. But it took a few hours. To be honest, it's not my best work. But oh well.
A subject that has always been a horror and fixation since my youth, giant, lurking sea beasts still captivate my imagination. I figured a goblin shark + dunkleosteus would be a sweet-looking mix. I also threw in some lion/african Butterfly fishes into the mix.

I have a tolerate/hate relationship with the Twilight series. Stephanie Meyer graduated from my school, yet i don't consider her a strong writer. Her series is sappy, trashy and tasteless, yet i can't deny her success among the masses AND in synthesizing some likable stereotypes. It has the freshness of taking place in the Pacific Northwest and featuring an extremely less-known First Nation tribe, but at the same time perpetuates some horrible cultural notions about relationships, gender roles, and materialism.
In short, i attempted to convey in my drawing of Bella Swan and Alice and Edward Cullen how i perceive Twilight: Absurdly silly.
I particularly enjoyed showing Edward as a creepy psycho... because he is.
