Deep Sea Megalodon by FutureAesthetic Deep Sea Megalodon by FutureAesthetic
This is a 3d model I made of the great shark megalodon for shark week. Imagine what would it be like if he was still alive today, hiding in the deep oceans. I wanted to depict him as a resident of the deep seas, megalodon perhaps would lose its original skin pigmentation and appear brownish like the goblin shark, frilled shark etc...over years of living in deep sea. I made him as accurate as I could, let me know what you guys think! Wouldn't it been cool if he was still alive today?

It is a nice render of a subject worth modelling. I have a little comment about the specular reflections though; An object in water has very little specular. It appears when there is a thin film of water on an object in air. This fish would have to be in air to glisten like this.  I'd love to see the fishing rod that brought it up.

I understand, I wanted to show the model with  much of its details, the murkiness of the water would hide some of that detail. But in deep sea you would hardly see anything without some kind light. I was thinking that a submarine could have passed by from the top. Thankyou for the critique much appreciated! :)

This is beautiful work! ^_^ I've long had a fascination with the Megalodon and thought many times about it still being alive today. Terrifying as that would be, I still I wish it was! I used to be both scared and obsessed with Great Whites when I was a little girl and I was forever searching for the biggest possible one, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this shark! :D

yeah, as frightening as they may be, they're still pretty amazing animals. :)

Love the line of thought! If [I]C.megalodon[/I] exist today in the deep sea, it won't be a carbon copy of the [I]C.megalodon[/I] found on Pliocene sediments

I think divers might not like that, if it was still alive today.
Great model!

he is well over a large schoolbus and half again.  His teeth average as big as a man's hand and have a tip bite force of over 2000 psi. As the teeth have serrations on both sides they easily slice through meat or bone in one bite.  The eye today will likely be a crystal blue (see my site for the 6 gill that lives at over 3000').
Now for the good news: it appears some scientists are admitting to the likelihood they are alive in the deep...

Aloha folks,

Walt

Those guys were never nice. They had a jaw opening of over 6 ft. and were the largest predator ever - land or sea.  
They suspect their current existence from marks left on washed-up bits of giant squid.
Aloha,

Those Squids could yield some evidence that some megalodon could still be alive in the deeps seas. Giant squids and even colossal squids lived millions of years before, and yet they still manage to survive the extinction.

the glowing effect is just for the fancy look, I'm not suggesting its bioluminescent.

aaaa hes so scary, model looks like real sculpture. I dont know much about sharks but he reminds me of a great white, only few more pair of teeth :)

There's a bit of a difference in terms of feature, a great white's snout is much longer. But there's only so much you can do with the megalodon, after all he is somewhat related to the great white shark. But, the features can't be too wild otherwise its not a megalodon. Thankyou!
