For this tracker there were so many choices i could have picked. I already did my other favorite in an LTC which was the Godfather so i had to take the next one on my list which was Jaws. I probably have seen Jaws the most of any movie ever and could probably recite most of the lines from start to finish. I was very pleased with how this one turned out because i just wasn't sure what image to choose from or if i even could do it justice. But once i got something i liked and fit what i wanted, it wasn't a bad carve. I am very pleased with how well the shark turned out because that was tough to get right. I just didn't know how to handle certain shading and textures but overall this came out well. For the back of the card, i ended up listing a whole bunch of quotes from the film to round it out.

Finding Nemo: GillThis was for the Finding Nemo tracker i did. This one was a pretty simple carve and design. Not much to it. Probably could have done something with water or a fish tank for the background but decided just to do the character i picked. Just finding a suitable image was tough enough. There just aren't enough reference materials for certain characters out there. I was happy with the area around the eyes and nose. That was a little tricky for me to make them stand out being intricate. I am also happy with the Finding Nemo font. I think the coloring and lettering came out well.
