We'reGonnaNeedABiggerBoat by zilla774 We'reGonnaNeedABiggerBoat by zilla774
All time classic line from one of my favourite films - Jaws.

So many cool lines in this film, great cast and a rubber shark - the recipe for a quality film :D

I first started this with the idea of the line in my head and then came the kinda abstract take on both the poster for the film and the idea of a fishing line hooked to a mass of flailing teeth and mouths depicting the violence of the shark. The shark head was originally going to have a body, or at least bits of a body, but I'm lazy and it took me AGES to get the head looking right *grr*. But I think the lack of a body and the inclusion of the abstract circles to give the feel of speed and bubbles and stuff works ok.

All work finished in Abode Illustrator CS.

Normally i'm absolutely terrified of sharks, but this is sheer genious! Everything fits perfectly, i couldn't even tell exactly what it was until i read the title and took a closer look! All signs of a wonderfully complete and well-executed piece. Way to rock it~ =p

This is excellent! With the vertical thrust of the image, movement and frenetic action are presented, dire trouble is shown in the blood and menacing (if not unsettling) shark heads, and the whole piece bursts with all the energy of a shark breaking the surface, lunging for its prey at a tense part in the film. Congrats, too, on bringing out the dark humor to the movie as well in using that particular quote. It's like every time I look at this piece I see the movie roll over in my mind again and again, as well as the consideration of what it's done for our perceptions of the sea in pop-culture. There's a certain kind of wit to this movie, and you brought it out in this pic. And to put the cherry on top, you've done all this and made it look insanely cool at the same time. Way to go on a fantastic piece.

(if interested, here's how I have it in a desktop environment. Hope you approve, but I brought out the blue a little more to match with the rest of my current theme :D)

Great job!

SALSA SHARK! "WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT"

i just thought of clerks when I saw the title... but this image is fascinating. I love the composition, and the typeography used.... the colors are also really well picked.

Great work.

Ha, for some reason I really like this image. Even though it's all about shark and violence, I think there's a really fun element to this piece. The mass of shark heads is just really nice to look at, it gives off a really raw visceral look that contrasts surprisingly well with smooth vector work. Well done. :+fav:
