Sky Whale Concept by Simkaye Sky Whale Concept by Simkaye
This is an early concept for my sky whale design.
It seems inappropriate to call this a sketch, but I put little time or effort into it. I really just needed an excuse to play with my expensive new acrylics for the first time.


8.5" x 11" Blue, white, and brown acrylic paint on smooth Bristol paper.
No references.

I want to see more of these. They're sooooo cool! :D (If I ever find the time, I want to draw your lovely whale species :) )

Thank you!! I'm really glad you like them. They're still MAJOR works in progress, so I don't have many guidelines for their design yet. Except that each breed is loosely based off of a real whale species (this one was derived from humpbacks), they all have rounded sea cow tails, multiple fins, multiple eyes, and bio luminescent dots trailing down their bellies. And they're much larger than their sea whale counterparts.
