Feeding the whales...


Hello!

This was a random image.... I was standing washing my dishes in the kitchen when this image of a whale with big teeth popped into my head. I just had to draw it - so I did! And the story kinda evolved from there...

A bit random but I like random sometimes!

Ill probably go back to it in a couple of days and tweak it. But for now, its done.

Ken :D

Great work!!!!

Abz said...

Brilliant! My only comment would be regarding the size of the toast- it seems to be as big as the boys head-- not to mention it should be farther away (even smaller) due to perspective. ;) That being said, i love it.. the water is flawless!

Awesome image! The whale's really nice - I really like the inside of his mouth and the light clipping the teeth at the back :) And the water is sweet.
I don't think this has ever happened before, but I have a critique! :o
The seagull on the top is pretty big, based on the one in the foreground and the people on the cliff - but that will be the first and last time I'm sure!
Hope you're good!

I love it - what a great story too!

Ken said...

Jmontiel: Thanks!

Abz: Cheers dude! And thanks for the crit :D Yeh I agree and I had an issue with that myself. I decided to let it go, but the more I look the more it annoys me too haha. I think Ill go back to this one and tweak it :D

Laurent: Hey dude! Thanks so much :D haha and thanks for the crit! I really appreciate it. I see what you mean! Yeh I hadnt noticed that, I think the only solution really is to make those two figure bigger. That would solve the huge bread problem too :D Hope youre good too man, chat soon!

Jeremy Elder: Thanks! Much appreciated :D

libra bear said...

Laurent, I think the seagull on the whales head is dundonian LOL. Those seagulls were beasts. They should use them as a transportation system. Great image Kenny. Hope your good bro
