my whale children

Protector grows up to be protector; adventurer grows up to be adventurer.

They shared the childhood in a time when most species no longer existed, and human beings lived in skies with duty cleaning the ocean. Now children grow up, and they finally see the beautiful blue ocean just as they heard it used to be…❤️


Here’s Whale and Zebra baby, all done and adjusted, plus a few shots taken while it was being painted. I used watercolor and colored pencil on 300lb hot press paper (Fabriano), and cleaned up the scan in Adobe Photoshop CS6. My siblings and I all talked like whales too, while I worked on it, so I think that also was an important part of the process. Yes!
