For J35 and her calf; a modification of the last rendered picture. This was made for some FB groups.

Her calf died only a half hour after its birth, and as of 17 days in, she is still carrying it's (not decomposing) body.

News: www.whaleresearch.com/j35 Edit to update: She dropped her baby after 17 days and swimming over 1,000 miles with it.

This peace is beautiful. I love everything about it. The only comment I’d make is the pecs seem a bit big for a female orca.

I heard about her and J50. When I saw the picture I already knew what the tribute was for. Great work.
