Whale Whale Whale by Leashe Whale Whale Whale by Leashe
What have we got here.

Just a personal piece, whales are one of my favorite animals and I love seeing them in fantasy settings. Like in armored tours, or as cetacean transport barges.

Really trying to work with scale and atmosphere

Air houseboats astride whales wearing leather goggles. If this isn't a steampunk fantacist's dream, I have no idea what is.

This is otherworldly beyond belief, and I love it that way. Does the near whale have potholes in its body? I'm... Partly curious as to how that would work. The rest of the whale looks organic, so I wonder how those could be built into a live whale's body.

Then again, this is a whale flying through the air that can support an enormous building on its back, so maybe this piece isn't the most open for questioning.

That's awesome! And can I just say that I love the concept of "World War Whale?" That's a great idea :D

Fantastic! I recommend looking up Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan triliogy. Its for chidlren yes, but the world he pitches is a worthy one, the artist Keith Thompson is worth looking at as well. Lovely picture, I love your more prehistoric whale in the back, don't see many of those! I'd love to see the evolution on this world, the whales of past and future FLYING?!?!? *gasp* It would be a grand dream XD!

This looks awesome! It made me think of the whales from Fantasia 2000 that jump out of the water and start flying. :3

This is absolutely gorgeous. I can't take my eyes off of it. I love how the lights in the buildings are coming through in what seems to be a very foggy atmosphere. And the tiiiiiny little people.
What's really bugging me though is that it seems so familiar to me, and I can't place why. It's driving me crazy. D:
