at the ocean's end by candid-crocodiles at the ocean's end by candid-crocodiles
Personal piece. Haven't done one in a while.

I needed to take a break from making art from given guidelines and dig into my own mind. A lot of things inspired me to make this- it mostly came from a scene in Life of Pi though (I didn't actually see the movie, I saw a picture of it in a magazine xP).
I'm not sure how much I like it...
well anyway, I've been staring at the whale for so long that it's turned into a blob, so here you go c;

Seriously, this has to be the absolute best, underwater manipulation I've ever seen. All those tiny little bubbles, that you could interpret as stars, which is a whole new level of amazingness. 

The hair.

It's.

for

It seems like in most underwater manips, it never looks right but it's so perfect here ;n;

But then the concept is just extraordinary, as per usual. Plus, I love Life of Pi. This is so dreamy and soft and fantastical. It's lovely.

And yes, very good idea. I was wondering how I could make the whale seem like it's swimming rather than suspended in space. I'll see what I can do when I find some time! c:
