Just say no. by kuroya-ken Just say no. by kuroya-ken
"Saying no to cooked soup isn't wastage, it's sending a message."



STOP SHARK FINNING.



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
Technique: My usual digital art skills

Thank you^^ This picture was originally drawn specifically for my god sister's blog post regarding shark finning mishberries.blogspot.com/2012/… 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

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!

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

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 ;_;

"only when the last tree has been cut down, the last river poisoned and the last fish caught will you realize you can not eat money" - Cree proverb (eyesoffire)

That was a prediction written around 100 years ago... It's truer today than ever. Shark finning is just one of many horrible things we do to animals. It you can stomach it, watch Earthlings. It's an award winning documentary on how humans use and abuse animals... But I'll admit I bawled at moments in it. I've adopted a scavengers life because the waste I see around me appals me. The elders call me coyote, because that's what I am. I live at the edge of modern society, living off the land as much as I can, scavenging other things I need by getting and using expiring food from stores which would otherwise be discarded. I collect roadkill for art reference and food for the feral cat colony I manage. Shark finning irks me because it's not only cruel, it's extremely wasteful. Earths resources are limited. We should not waste them.

shark fining is a horrible practice if you want to know more about it watch [link] it shows gordon Ramsay talking about fin soup on how tasteless it is and how people only eat it as a way to show how rich they are to their friends and family or just to show their social status.
