Underwater sunset by zavraan Underwater sunset by zavraan
somewhere in the deep sea along the coast of south africa, the sun went down. The sky was golden brown and a few clouds blocked the rays of the sun occasionally. Meanwhile, a great white shark named Greg, searched for some food. But he was very tired from his long journey that had just begun. The gold colored rays glistened through the water annd warmed his back. The highlights on the surface were yellow while the endless bottom under him was pich black.


Greg was an optimist and didn't care about what others thought of him. But then, he thought of Jack. a gray reef shark who was looking for a new residence. He said ugly things against Greg in the past, but he also told him something what humans believe about sharks. That they are dangerous. And seen as monsters. Greg remembered the story Jack told him. "Could it be true?" He thought. "Am I really a monster in their eyes?"

He looked around him. But saw nothing. Then he went with his head from the water...And looked around. Although he was nearly blinded by the bright sun, did not mean he couldn't see anything. But ... while he looked over the ocean's surface, he heard only an endless silence. There was nothing to see. He ducked his head back into the water and looked sad. "... Am I alone?" He said. "... Am I really a monster?"



Why is this little story so well written? Because I first wrote it in dutch and then translated it in English. XD

I really need to write more. But I want to learn how I explain certain things in big words.

Anyway, enjoy! :D

I really, really like the way you draw water and sunlight.
It is a sign of talent to draw a great white shark with his pitch-black eyes and still manage to give it an emotion of sorrow. Good job, keep it up!

"No, Greg, you are not; perhaps the real monster is the one who tagged your kind "monster"
