Humpback Whale by kaykaykit Humpback Whale by kaykaykit
Oh so pretty. I drew this, because today I was thinking of how pretty humpback whales' songs are... They are like composers themselfs. Each song is different, and they even repeat some sequences... So, amazing...

This whale looks like the whale in Fantasia 2000. Hehe. :3

Done in Adobe Photoshop 8.0

The water could be done a bit better, and the texture of the whale could use some work.

This is adorable! I searched "whale" on the browser (because I'm a whale lover) and when this came up, I just had to put it in my collection X3
I especially love the ripple effects, and the colors are very nice, too. Very soothing.
Once again, it's beautiful!

Reminds me of a song called something like, "The Worlds Last Whale." It's a pretty sad song. *continues browsing through Kay's gallery*

This has to be one of your best work! The effects and the coloring is just breath taking! :D Surely an Ace, no? I swear it even look like an official cartoon drew it when I looked at it from thumbnail. :D The way you made its skin was pure awesome. :) And the water is the best part. You just have talent with bgs, no? The effects on the water is really beautiful. X.X Awesome job on this! :D

Great work, I think the body could be lengthened somewhat, but I'm not entirely familiar with Humpback Whales anatomy. Great job. I especially love the pattern of reflected light on it's back.

WHA?! There's an Adobe Photoshop 8 OUT?! Mrruf, how I wish I lived in the Us so I could buy it --;

I use the paint brush at size 4, in black, then to colour it, i click the transparency box on the outline layer, and colour it that colour. X3

I took the paint brush and made the colour bright blue/green, then did lil triangles on the back, with the paint brush with flow set at 50%. Then I just easlily erased some near the bottom, so it looks like it is fading away...

heh.. I really like this what. I think it's soo cute. The water itself is really good. The light coming through is a great idea.. but yeah, that part could use a little work. As for the whale, I love it. It looks great in my opinion. I think that the water/light reflections make it really nice looking. Great job!!
