We have similar tastes in fashion, heh. I also like hoodies, trenchcoats, cargo shorts and the color green.

I think you did a great job with Jay's design. I've always found it terribly hard to anthropomorphise any animal that doesn't at least have legs, so I can really appreciate that you managed to pull it off with a shark!

I think my favourite part would have to be his tail, which is just so cool. Love his little ear-fins, too. =)

Thank you! Most whales and sharks I've found look kind of awkward, so I'm glad he doesn't look too odd but still gets the shark theme across.

The tail's my favorite bit to work with :) Thanks!

Seals and sea lions are among my favourite animals and I've tried to draw anthro versions of them before and failed quite miserably - but oh well, I'll figure it out someday!

His tail is definitely amazing. It makes me want to draw him just to be able to draw the tail. =P You know, I can kind of imagine him hanging out with my fursona Sym, who also loves the ocean. Perhaps I shall draw them together. I do need to draw more of Sym anyway . . . heck I need to draw more of anything, it's ages since I submitted something here!

Aw I bet they'd make for really likeable characters! I hope you do get to drawing them the way you see fit.

And holy crap I'd love to see them hanging out together <333 And YES you must submit something!

JAAAY OH MY GOSH YESSS :heart: Oh my friend this looks brilliant!!!
I love his design to death!! Like I said, the thick tail looks WAY better!! I love the size!
Its fits perfectly and really shows that he is a shark anthro. :)
I also LOOVE the green color thats on him! :D It looks almost like a tatoo! >w<
Im surprised he doesnt like swimming! :D But ehehehehe.. I see what you did there.. >w>
This is basically YOUR bio.. *glomp*
This is a great drawing! :D I love Jay so much; his design is amazing!

Hahah thank you! I like the thick tail much better too! And neon green is awesome <3

I love swimming and it was actually on my list of "likes" but I didn't want it to get too long - so I combined "beach" and "swimming" as just "the ocean" ;)

...I actually prefer my nonedited version :| Hahah. And yes it is my bio :) Thank you!

Oh derp! :XD: That makes sense!
And yesss.. I liked the unedited one better too- it just shows how he would be realistically.
But they are both great! :)

Bah, why must you censor everything xDD You censorer you >:V

I think the birthmarks are interesting to add! Makes him more you xD (Sucks about your mum embarrassing you though LOL)

But FFFF hawtest shark evar. Now I'm tempted to make an actual fursona, but I gotta think about what animal is my absolute favourite :|

I needs to come up with the animal for me D: Maybe a chinchilla...

Exercise is GOOOOD. I go to the gym at least once a week but I'm trying to go daily once I graduate. I love weight lifting in particular.

I love it when people make their 'sonas with body physiques at least close to how they are - it's more pleasant than the super exaggerated balloon-chested types hahah. (Unless they really are balloon-chested, which that's cool.) And a chinchillaaaa awwwwuhhhh

I'd think that I'd get lots of exercise at my school- running between the Senior students' building and the main building (my classes are at opposite ends, so instead of the 6 minutes we usually have to get from point A to B, walking gets me there in 9... So I run :stare:) And it happens many times in my day... about 4 trips back and forth, not to mention the trial of stairs xD a few of my classes are on the 3rd floor of the Senior building, so I run up and down those a lot too >.< But it's not enough D: I have a belly, darn it! I don't have the money for things like the gym or exercise programs, but I do a few exercises at home, like push-ups and lifting heavy objects in my house (like my bookbags, LOL) It doesn't seem to be helping though OTL. And heaviness runs in my family on top of that... DARN! I'm quite happy with the way I am, though, don't get me wrong, it just seems like there's extra hurdles in my way Dx

I decided on a calico cat, since my mom was reassuring my traits with a cat's, calling my lazy, nocturnal, clever, and good at getting out of things xD I'll just be a tubby cat xD

Ahahah yeah I hear you there, I have to do a lot of running from class to class sometimes too - the worst was my sculpting class, which was about a 40 minute walk, and I had to carry heavy polymer clays, steel armatures, a large tool kit, and 4 foot long stalker boards to...-__- NEVER AGAIN. I'm surprised that hasn't done much for ya :C That's a lot of running and stair climbing! I don't have a belly at all (derp) but my asssss whyyyyy. D: Yeah long as you're healthy and feel fine, no shame in some extra pounds. :B Nothing wrong with that!

Calico cat AWESOME I can't wait to see!

Ah man, that must have sucked D:

Yeah xD It must be the genetics! Blame it allllll!!!

It's like my friend once said- every time I lose weight, all the fat goes to my butt and boobs. And I still have to buy larger jeans! xD

I hardly ever get sick, just once in a while due to cold, and I feel fine. So why complain, right? As long as I can still fit into my favourite outfit, I'm pleased and content xD


Bah, patterns, why must you hate me??

Seriously being healthy is the big thing so as long as you're doing good then that's what matters.

What, no speedo? Worst ref of the year, all years. (Just kidding :P)

I like how you made the tail a bit meatier - it helps emphasize the shark qualities. I think the feet also turned out fairly well - I tend to struggle with those, as you may have noticed. I also like your attention to detail with the beauty marks

Thank you! Yeah the tail I think came out better this round. I actually have my qualms with the feet, they are always a tough thing to draw, but I'm glad you think they turned out alright. They aren't easy, I agree, hahah.

Like before, I liked the color choices, green and shades of black/grey, and the spines ^^

I love how you did a mix with his attitude, he may have rough shell from the outside but he's soft from the inside. >w<
I'd say, a very awesome shark character. 8D
