megaptera novaeangliae by odontocete megaptera novaeangliae by odontocete
My first try at a baleen whale. It's a bit rough, but it was fun (especially to get the knobbly texture - I'm so used to doing species with smooth skin) so I definitely plan on doing more in the future.

Prints available! [link] Thanks for taking a look!

Edit 9/26: Oh my goodness, a Daily Deviation! Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work and for the lovely comments. This piece was drawn and coloured digitally using my tablet, but my recent pieces are all traditional media.

I wrote some words on this piece here on my blog, with some images of it in progress: [link]

Please visit my website for more of my work, including sketches! [link]

Thank you again!

So deep. So blue. And then the whale. I dunno why I love the deep whale pictures so much. There's just something so magical and mysterious about them.

This is astonishing work!! Simply amazing, the deep blue and the games of the light in the surface, and the vastity of the ocean surrounding an enourmous animal, making it seem small; that's what I see. DD, well deserved :iconclapplz:
