Sawprion by ReeceyPeecey Sawprion by ReeceyPeecey
I used Todd Marshall's Helicoprion as a reference to draw this, just sayian.


this is for :icondarksilvania:'s contest, it evolves from Sharpedo at level 55. It's based off the prehistoric Helicoprion, a shark-like cartilaginous fish.
It's lower jaw extends out into an almost saw-blade like row of teeth, though it varies, depending on where they live, some have much smaller lower-jaws. I was getting too lazy to draw them, but inside it's lower jaw it has rows and rows of more teeth, just like a normal shark, when it loses teeth while fighting or catching prey, the teeth go out to replace it.
Like it's pre-evolution, it's skin is very rough like sandpaper, and can rip up flesh when it swims at high speeds to attack. In it's evolution, it has lost much of the speed it had previously, the large lower jaw slowing it down drastically, along with the full shark body.

no existing fossils would quite fit this, so I used a 'saw fossil', which in reality is the lower jaw of the real creature. [link]
Though I might be able to use the skull fossil instead for evolution.

this is very creative and good coloring on your part, and I'm not saying its bad and I know that this is your first aquatic creature, but you could have done something more to stray from the original, but i do like it. ; P

I saw the original on the internet all you did was change the colours.

Actually, that isn't true, I did trace the basic shape of the original image because, well, I had never drawn a sea animal of sorts. And I said so in the comments below. If it's a bother to you, I can put in the description that I did it so I would have more reference to how to draw a sea creature.

tracing over an image is considered art theft. please read deviantart's rules: [link]

All i did was trace the basic shape and used the original to help with shading, is it really a huge big deal>
If it is, i will take it down if needed. .n.

it's still considered art theft. you should probably take it down since it violates the rules. next time, I suggest you use the image as reference, and draw the thing yourself.

I love it, but (this is just my preference, you can ignore it if you want) it looks too realistic.

TOO realistic> well i take that as a compliment! I don't strive for realism much in my art, but for these things, I always want to make it look as realistic as possible. That's the fun about it, such a crazy creature looking real.
