Short Explanation: Here's my entry for DeviantArt's 11th Birthday Skribble Contest.
Long Explanation: I started this contest as soon as it popped up in my inbox and got about half way through a piece that had sharks floating in space when I finally checked out some of the submissions and noticed that everybody was doing some kind of marine life thanks to shark week...so I started over.
Thank god I did because I am fairly new to using Manga/Comic Studio and I think I learned a lot from starting the other piece so that I was able to come up with something far more creative and something that I was infinitely more happy with.
My previous attempt can be seen here: [link]
As for this piece - I was so nervous about doing something with the lines that I wasn't supposed to (I read the rules like a million times) that I kept them on a separate layer the entire time so as not to mess with them even though I wanted to make them thinner or tapper soooo badly I was too afraid. If you can't make out the lines I have made up a cheat sheet here: [link]
Soooo long story short - thanks DA for the contest and the opportunity to create a piece that is the first one I am truly happy with in a long time.
