I had never done a shark's mouth, until I did this one recently.

Well, thanks

Just one more link for now - Note: It's from a youtuber/streamer, but, it has some interessing "mouths" for its War Thunder vehicles (check only the War Thunder Antics for inspirations)

It's stupid, but still, better than none

A fair number of these images come from an article called "BITE ME! The Story of the Shark Mouth, the World’s Most Enduring Nose Art" on the Vintage Wings of Canada site; an excellent resource.

Sorry, no. I found it in a google search.
I thought using the Bf 109 bumps as eyes was a great idea.

edit: there's a version with more contrast at https://www.reddit.com/r/Warthunder/comments/280sy5/bf109_sharkmouth/
