  1. Hey thanks for the tutorial. It looks fun and not too hard. I like the focus on the rock! Good job.

  2. Great Tutorial. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I got to say, when I first saw the final result preview at the beginning of this tutorial I thought you were going to use multiple images to create the scene, then when you started drawing the hammerhead and the sardines I went whoa, serious? I’ts all hand drawn? Then you incorporated that desert sand and the rock. That’s 50/50 to me. But it’s still a cleaver tutorial. Good job!
