Illustration Friday - Beneath

I normally like to create a new illustration for the 'Illustration Friday' word challenge but this week, on top of training a new dog, I've been working on too many different projects to create something new, so, instead I'm posting an image I created last spring for my portfolio.  It depicts a happy purple whale swimming under a beaming sun. Below the whale is a glimpse of some other creatures that live beneath the sea. Once again this was created digitally in Corel Painter. I used various chalk, gouache and sponge brushes for the coloring and the background, plus some pen brushes for the outline details.

  1. Hi Vincent! This is so wonderful! I love how the water looks. The whale and sun are so happy and delightful! Great use of color and detail here. ****Painting water and glass intimidate me still so I am in awe of artists that do such a good job painting them! Great illo!
