"Saying no to cooked soup isn't wastage, it's sending a message."


A few days ago, my godsister asked me if I could draw her a simple picture for her blog. Upon knowing what the topic was, I gave her three. Thus the above compiled version.

Read her blogpost here [link]

I also ask of you to watch this short, 2 minute+ video, if you want to know just how bad it is. It's not for the faint of heart, you have been warned. [link]

Edit: Submitted for [link]
Hours taken: 2? 1 and a half? I can't remember

Thank you^^ This picture was originally drawn specifically for my god sister's blog post regarding shark finning… She's got some good points there, especially since it's coming from a Chinese's perspective towards shark fin soup. If you could in some way make that post known, it'd be awesome^^ Any publicity for awareness towards environmental conservation is good publicity. Fight for the sharks! >:3
Thanks for your love to sharks. It`s great to see people who do good with their talent.
We posted your image "Just say no." to The Global Shark Initiative. Thanks for permission. Let`s stay in contact.…

You're most welcome^^! And I'm glad someone decided to share the blogpost my godsis made too (I saw it in the comments on that FB link). This picture was originally drawn for my sister's post :P And she's got a few good points to put forward too. Keep it up! Stop shark finning!

Thank you ;u;
And actually, it's a common misconception that sharks like to attack people XD it's actually only 11 species in 300 species of sharks that have been known to attack people, and when they do, it's usually out of mistake thinking the human being is a seal or turtle. Because, well, they look at us from 'below', and this is what they see: [link] xD

I'll just go and say goodbye to my intelligence. ^-^
LOL no seriously thanks for correction. <3

xDDD nah, I just like to read up on some animal facts that's all. Not a lot of people know about this, but you do now lol

Did you also know, most of the time in shark attacks, after they take a 'nip', they realize it's the wrong 'species of food' and swim away. The humans actually die because they panic and ultimately drown ;_;
