Jay Reference v3 by Robo-Shark Jay Reference v3 by Robo-Shark
New ref sheet for my shark-sona! Actually started this last year...I just got sidetracked, and having been sick the past several days, I decided to go ahead and finish it between commission work.

Jay the Blacktip Reef Shark
27 / ♂ / 5' 7" / 208 lbs
Zodiac: Aquarius / Fire Tiger
Status: Taken
Likes: The beach, robots, swimming, cats, weight lifting, drawing, toys, cuddles, cartoons, sushi, and cheesecake.
Dislikes: Hate, dishonesty, destruction of the environment, and animal cruelty.
Wardrobe: Muscle shirts, t-shirts, button-down plaid shirts, hoodies, cargo shorts, cargo pants, faded blue jeans, DC shoes, river sandals, beachy necklaces, kigurumi.
Details: Jay is friendly and affectionate but can be blunt in his honesty and is hesitant to trust others. He loves to flirt and toss around dirty humor, and he enjoys intelligent conversation about philosophy, spirituality, and humanity. He likes a good dose of child-like shenanigans in his life, like diving in ball pits, coloring in coloring books, and building pillow forts. Drawing and storytelling are his passions. He has an exposed robo-parts tattoo on his left shoulder (something I plan to get one day).

Adult version uploaded elsewhere ask if you want it hahah

Feel free to ask questions if you wanna!

this makes me rethink how i go about making ref sheets.

yea im going to future ref sheets in a similar way to this, unless you think that is something akin to plagiarism.

also good work

It's cool that you included a plantigrade version for Jay's feet, but man the digitigrade looks so badass.

Robo-Shark Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hah thanks dude! The plantigrade version is lots easier for long pants and standard footwear, I've always had a thing for digitigrade though, and he was meant to be a utahraptor-shark hybrid when I first started concepts for him :D

Ahh nice updated ref for him, I like the bigger ears he has here!  And wonderful job on the anatomy, it's really natural-looking . . . despite how unnatural an armed, legged, earred, haired shark may appear to be. =P I really like that open-mouthed pic at the top too!

Random observation: I noticed that the unclothed version has the dewclaws but the clothed version doesn't - is it meant to be like that?
Reply
:iconrobo-shark:
Robo-Shark Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! For some reason I keep drawing them bigger, hahah! I've tried to keep his sharky look despite the humanoid body, hahah.

Argh totally missed that, both should have the dew claw, though it's not really a necessary part of drawing him, hahah. I gave him those in some of my earliest drawings and kinda wanted to bring them back - at one point years back I wanted him to be part utahraptor!

ScurvySimon Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
O_o Ooh, part shark, part raptor, that does sound like a pretty fearsome combination!  But hey even though you didn't officially keep the utahraptor idea, I do think the dewclaws look cool.  Somehow they just seem really fitting on an anthro shark.  And they look fun to draw!  Which reminds me that I need to draw him sometime.  I'm pretty sure I started something like . . . years ago when you posted that first reference of him, but I never finished it.  I'm terrible like that. =|

Dang Jay the Shark is super awesome!! He's got really great coloration, and the neon is very eye-popping. I like how he ever gets some sharky ears! :-) Have you drawn pics of him swimming? aaaand is he at all a robo-shark? ;-)

And noooo sickness ;_; Sorry to hear you've been under the weather! Hopefully that's all cleared up now. Have some Sushi Sushi Sushi !!

Thank you so much! I like having just that bit of neon to him, I admit I really like glowy stuff. :B And his fin ears keep getting bigger, hahah. I don't know that I've drawn any underwater drawings of him but others have drawn him that way for me! And I've considered having his tattoo actually be the real him underneath, but since he's my sona character I try to keep him kinda plain, lol. I have drawn him in full on robo mode though! :D

Ah thank you, getting better slowly! Sushi is a good cure! :D

 it's a shaaaaarrk. ohhh dang! so many ref sheets lately :U. another one to add to the collection :y always thought he was a pretty great design for an anthro shark. i mean, he is a conversion from a fish and all :U so even with a humanoid shape, you can still tell perfectly that he be a shark :v then again, i haven't really seen many anthro sharks so i dunno if they all have this general shape :U but it really does work perfectly. plus, I'm sort of a fan of the aggressive look like this :v

I'mma feeeesh :B I really gotta do more ref sheets for the Mech crew, everything I do have is outdated and so much is nonexistent...ah maybe someday. Thanks dude, I made him back before there were tons of shark anthros and was pretty proud of how I converted him too, though now there's almost as many sharks as there are foxes or wolves it seems :I Ah well hahah. And I do like being the dominant feeeesh hahahah! Thanks so much!

yesh, definitely! :U allot of your villains and rivals seem to have fallen out of date. even Izzy has followed that direction :U

well, if you had it before it became a trend then there aint nuttin to be ashamed about :v i noticed the most common anthros usually tend to be predators though :U i guess it makes sense that, if folks wanna make a character from the ocean, then sharks are probably number 1 on that list :U but, yesh, your welcomes! :V

I haven't shared much of them yet, for reasons of spoilers hahah! :V I probably won't be posting much Mechanima from here on out since I'm going the furry fetish route for monies but I'd like to develop some on the side when I can at least so maybe someday I can do a patreon for pages :B

I am very much a feesh eater, I couldn't resist being predatory |D Sharks were my favorite animals for so many years, I still have a photo of me with my favorite shark plush when I was six years old :B And they're also a creature a lot of people hate and fear without understanding them, so I kinda always loved 'em.

i sees. I'm kinda keeping some of my villains in hiding for that reason. mainly cause i intend to bring them out of the fan fiction storied i created them for, but i wanna finish the story in question first so i can give all their info. man, you've gotta get to work on that thing. course, if you can quit your job and work on furry pronz for a living, then you may actually have the time to do that. again, too bad you have to do that, but it could be alloooooooooot worse :U

yesh, eat'n the feesh makes sense. naw, a shark absolutely makes sense for you. it's like you actually picked the right thing for yourself. most people tend to try to relate to the same freaking thing and i honestly don't imagine that a thousand people relate closest to wolves >:U but, yea, i always looked at sharks as just be'n feesh with the advantage of be'n bigger :U exept things like bull sharks. they's assholes >:U

Yeeeah it's good to keep some things a surprise of sorts, heh. It'll be all the more awesome at the reveal then :V And yeah, found a guy on Patreon today who does 18+ furry comics and is at about the same skill level as me, and he gets paid $440 per PAGE. And has almost 40 backers. If I can just garner enough of a following, hell I could do x-rated animations :f I feel kinda bad giving in to the whole sex sells slogan but I'd feel better about drawing naughty stuff than working for a company that abuses animals anyway. But yeh. We'll see, gotta do a lot to build up to it if I can pull it off :F

Woooolves ahahah. Yeeeah there are a lot of them, some of my bros have wolves and they fit perfectly but I was never too much a canine type myself. There's a lotta animals out there to pick from! Bull sharks are kinda scareh. Goin' in rivers and all. :V

well, there aint really many redeeming factors for that company it seems. it suffers from the crap you usually expect to see from big companies. stereotypically it seems :U i just hope that doesn't become what you're known for and ruin your reputation or something. once you get go'n with that stuff, your following for it's gonna skyrocket. good art + Merr = furry magnet. just know, i've seen some things... and some stuff. that stuff can get pretty extreme. i could try to soften the blow for ya by tell'n you everything i know... but it can get pretty horrifying XU

i just wish they'd at least get more original. i should try to convert my old HTF characters into anthros. my main was a hedgehog XD

Yeah, I hear you. I'm not looking to hide it really either so I don't wanna do anything that would leave a bad taste in my mouth, even on a separate account. I don't want to touch on major extremes since I have seen some pretty awful stuff (though I dunno if it's as bad as what you've seen, hahah).

Aw there needs to be more hedgehog characters that aren't Sonic related lol.
