'Shark Encounter' - Simon Lissaman

Simon Lissaman describes with immaculate detail how he created "Shark Encounter", a meticulously-worked sleek and mean cartoon 'killing machine'. Lissaman has created the archetypical razor-toothed shark through deft use of Photoshop combined with his own painting ability.

If you haven't dealt much with the custom brushes in Photoshop, read how Lissaman has put this feature to powerful use -- page 3...

Thanks Simon!

Wow, what a great image! I love how really rich and believable it is yet still has that cartoony twist to it. Really nice.

OK, I'm going to read the "making of" article now, and then I'll probably come back with more nice things to say.

Beautiful image. It is soft yet clean, something that could have easily turned into a smudge-fest.

Great work!
