This one is probably a real world shark to make, 3 grey balloons and then scraps for eyes and teeth and it all holds in place Ok as well.

Still don't like any sharks I have seen.  That includes any I made too.  Never been totally happy about any of them.  Suppose I had better have a play too.

I made this one yesterday but went out before I could post, for a 2 balloon shark I like it. Would work in the real world.
Over to Thelma to see what she thinks  ;)

Actually it's not bad for two balloons.  One of the things I don't like is spending time on a model and feeling it's not right.  Very doable.

Having another play and I like this shark, it looks similar to others but is constructed completely differently and the mouth will open and close into any position you like.
So that is a bonus as well, I moved the position of the side fins on picture two but it does not show very well.

Hey Graham, I only had a couple of hours in the shopping centre yesterday, but i did make a few sharks, i did not take a picture, as most of the time pic's are not allowed in there, but your shark went down a treat with both boys and girls, nicely engineered and easy to make, all in all a great real world shark sculpture ;). Where your ears burning Graham,? cause i was bigging you up, with credit for this one!!

Hats off to you Mr Lee. ;)

Yeah! at last a shark that looks like a shark without being too long in construction.  Thats great for working Graham.  Love the mouth opening and closing like that too.  Another play element.  Thanks for showing it.

I had a play with a shark design again yesterday, I added the lower mouth section
after as it looked a little odd.

Trying for a different mouth.
The first picture does look a little dolphin like.
