hey guys!!!!

Its been so long since I've submitted something finished!
Since Christmas is all about mostly white animals I thought "why not!"... and decided to go for a white humpback whale. I thought of Migaloo for this, but I didnt find any picture of him underwater so decided to use another picture as a reference.

I must say that it was a bit of a challenge but I managed to pull through... I didn't go for much detail just thought something simple to get the point across would do.

SOHERE IT IS =D

I hope you like it, any tips, suggestions etc would be most welcome!

It's amazing. The lighting is superb, and the pose and use of the screen space is amazing.

Lovely atmosphere you have created by using a bright animal in such a dark environment. :clap:

Really great looking piece! This has a very dramatic composition and I love the way the light hits the whale.

Oh my, this is absolutely wonderful :love: So good to see you come back, especially when it's with a gorgeous painting like this. White animals are always very hard to shade well, but I think you pulled off great! :clap:
