I wanted to share this painting that I just finished yesterday. I've been working hard on this one since the end of last year/beginning of this year and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I used a TON of references in this piece and I want to thank Stefan Jacobs (orcahome.de/) for use of some of his orca photos, Matt Dozier from NOAA for more orca refs, my sis for the background refs, and the wonderful RIL on WetCanvas for the water/background. Enjoy!!

EDIT: Wow! A DD!! Thank you so much guys--I am completely humbled and honored by this. Thanks especially to Erzsabet for suggesting it and STelari for featuring it.
When I saw this I was like "hmm great photographer" but then I started looking at the textures of everything like-- "THIS IS A PAINTIN!!!???" Omg I cannot Believe it, it's so amazing and realistic! You put a lot of effort into it and it looks perfect! Keep up with ten amazing work!
Congrats on the well-deserved DD!
