Whale War by Leashe Whale War by Leashe
Taking a break from other projects atm and exploring my whale world. Suggestions are always welcome.

Getting the right lighting and sense of distance gave me some trouble at first, but I'm becoming a lot more comfortable with it. I'd imagine they use explosive and futuristic technology (lasers! 8D ) to combat each other.

This is freaking amazing!!!

Maybe you've already done this or thought about it but maybe a SunFish inspired creature could be a neat addition.

Like this guy (hopefully this link dosent fail me) preview.turbosquid.com/Preview…

Flying whales are a little weird. Whales with legs are a little weird. Flying whales with legs (especially spidery ones like this one's) are so bizarre they just plain shake my mind up.

I hope, on behalf of the white skinny thing that its tail armour was made whale tooth proof. The biting whale's teeth don't look too sharp, but maybe it wouldn't bother trying to take a bite out of that armoured tail if it wasn't worth it. I'm not seeing any riders on these creatures, so am I right in thinking this fight is solely between the creatures, not the people who own them? Or are the people smart enough to stay out of the fights and let their flying cetacean monsters do all the work for them?

I like the whales with the rotary blades the best. They're just hanging in the air acting all cool. Though the one diving down, thrusters blazing is a pretty close contender.

You created the mood wonderfully with those clouds. The pinkness kind of gives this aerial sea mammal scene a fantastical sense of magical otherworldliness, but at the same time the reddish clouds sort of imitate the cloudy trails of blood you see when a creature is fatally wounded in the water, adding to the tone of violence. Putting the big whales in the blue part of the background and the skinny ones in the red part also add to giving implications of who we're supposed to be routing for, which is a kind of cool third effect. I like when one aspect of something does more than one thing to the tone of a piece.

I've been loving your whale world concepts <3 But if your'e looking for suggestions and haven't already thought of it I think the Narwhal would be an interesting addition to this world. Either way beautiful job~
