How many movies out there can you think of that stared an animal as the villain, and made you cringe when you watched it? For me there really isn't but more then a handful of those said movies on my list. But, there is one fish from the sea that scared my socks off when I watched it for the first time. This lesson is going to be on “how to draw Jaws", step by step. The name of the shark is Jaws, and the movie labeled a species of fish, that is distinctive just by the name. The Great White shark is one of the scariest creatures that lives in the ocean today. Steven Spielberg helped develop Peter Benchley's creation, by using the ferocity of the Great White, and made it into a serial killer. Jaws came out in 1975, and it takes place at a summer resort called Amity Island. It's up to a police chief, a marine biologist, and an incredible shark hunter to stop a man eating fish from feeding on beach, and vacation goers as they enjoy the beautiful waters that the resort has to offer. In the seventies there was three popular movies that everyone knew of; Jaws, The Omen, and of course Star Wars. All three movies where blockbuster hits, and all three movies where kings of their domain. Did you know that it took three different mechanical dummies to shoot Jaws? It's true, there was one model to be used for full bodied shots under the water, another was created to move from the camera in positions left and right, and then one more shark was used that had the right flank uncovered. I do know that they shot a big portion of Jaws in Martha's Vineyard, which is located in Massachusetts. I have always been scared of this beast when I was younger. Now that I'm older, it's more tolerable because I know it's all fake. Nonetheless, you will have fun drawing Jaws because he is a shark that will always be remembered as the first sea creature that killed people to survive. Happy drawing folks!
