Haha, I didn't realize this was animated at first. It took me off guard because I thought my laptop was just loading the page weirdly. Thank you for that! :D

All of that aside, I really do like this piece. Despite the surface of the water, the whole thing is just so calm and peaceful. I feel like I'm going on an adventure with the whale, without ever having to leave - which suits me just fine. The sudden appearing glow on the whale gives afterward adds a whole new layer that I really appreciate. Instead of a regular whale swimming in the ocean, it's a magical whale that creates a sort of mysterious, mystical air that makes me wonder about how it came to be and its story in general.

Very nicely done! ^^

Oop, I'm sorry if it startled you at all! :lol:

But anywho, thank you so much for such a lovely comment. ;_; This really made my day! You're too kind :heart:
The commissioner described this creature to me as a 'Guardian Spirit'.  From them, I quote: "One of the oldest spirits, originally guardian of creatures like plesiosaurs, now guardian of whales, whale sharks, and giant squid." So cool. :D

Oh, it was a good startle, haha. :D


Anyway, you're quite welcome! Happiness is something hard to find for many now-a-days, so I'm happy to be able to provide some of that for you. ^^


Ah, that makes a lot of sense. I feel like part of me knew that, but my brain crapped out on the descriptions. Guardian whale. I love it. :D
