i need some tips, tricks, stock images and textures for hammer head shark texturing.
i have already looked throught google and my uni library. but havent found anything worthwhile.

am making it for my live action short film. the shark has to look absolutely realistic.
in the scene it is flipping around like it just removed from water. it has huge cut mark on its body and a lot is covered with blood.

i guess its gonna look slimy and sticky since its just removed from water.

please give or point me to any tutorial, texture library, reference images, blueprints anything available.

this is ultra-important for me guys. help.

Being a SCUBA diver I can tell you that your HH shark model is not accurate, that is if you are going for a 100% realistic look. The resemblance is there but the proportions need work.

As for texturing... you will not find a tutorial THAT specific. You are better referencing sharks ANY shark and start from there. You can study the making of this Great White image:

Use the images in google as reference and just paint your own textures.
