Say no to shark fin soup!


say no to shark fin soup!
SAI 1.01 + Photoshop CS2
b/g textures from www.cgtextures.com

Shark fin soup is a very popular dish in Chinese cuisine, but the fins are attained in a very inhumane way - conscious sharks are tossed back into the water once their fins are removed, and are basically left to die. Shark finning also plays a leading role in decimating shark populations and disrupting ecosystems. Please check out the SHARKWATER website for more information on the consequences of shark finning (as i can't seem to write properly today...) and what you can do to help stop such cruelty.

i was going for a paper cut-out sort of look with this one. i was inspired by Dric's incredible artwork that i first saw in volume 2 of Apple. This image will be used in the future sooo will probably post the finalized version then. :)

It's a shame, I used to love sharks fins too but these days I don't feel comfortable eating them anymore. I think these days they use a gelatin replacement tho.. it tastes just as good I heard.

@ Andrew: :B

@ Schin: Yeah i used to love the soup so much! Shark fin is pretty tasteless itself so i'm sure a gelatin replacement could go unnoticed. :D

@ Alina: Thank you!

@ Bequita: Thanks for the heads up. :)

May I request for permission to use your image for my upcoming wedding as we also wish to support by not serving sharkfin in our wedding menu too.

Look forward to your reply soon.
Thanks in advance.
