Meg- The Megalodon


My kids are really into sharks and megalodons right now, so I quickly painted this cute nice little megalodon that is eating a whale for a snack. Looking for a name for the megalodon, Ethan didn't like the name "Snuggles."

Chris said...

Hey Todd! Great great painting and design!

Kyle Poling said...

I love how you use color, the character designs are really well thought out. I especially like how you handled the water highlights in the background and how it reflects on the top of the shark - very nice.

fedeWES said...

marcobucci said...

great image. The little silhouette of the diver is a nice touch.

Guillermo P. Mogorrón said...

nice textures, great color, scaring design, I love it.
But (and sorry for saying it), the megalodon is maybe too big? But im sure you already know this, so I'm feeling like a fool for mention it, but what the hell..:D

You could call him Fidget? Or maybe Ferris? Or Dwayne. A giant destructive force of nature named Dwayne would be hysterical. As the dog said, "we've all got our flamin' aunt dolly's"

Dude you have a great style! I was wondering if you ever have done a Darth Vader? I am creating a tribute book to George Lucas called "100 Ways to the Darkside" where I am having 100 hand picked artist create Darth Vader. I would love one for the book in your style. Please let me know if your interested!

Thanks a million
