hammerhead shark sketch

Last week I watched an incredible documentary on hammerhead sharks called National Geographic:  Shark Superhighway.  It taught me quite a bit about hammerhead sharks, and inspired me to illustrate one!

I'm a huge fan of "Shark week".  I look forward to it every year, but I never did an illustration involving a shark, so here goes nothing!  This is my first sketch and I'm pretty happy with it.  The final illustration will be slightly different... I always tweak them along the way, but the sketch gives me the gist of what the character will look like.
