Movies You've Over-Watched: Jaws 
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: Gill
This 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.
