Ok, is not my regular kind of stuff, but i like to draw this one.

trempulcahue is a mapuche myth of my country (chile) four old womans are turned in whales for carry the souls of the dead people and spirits to the "Ngill chenmaywe", there, the alhue ( spirits) can start the long travel.... the myth is similar to caronte´s myth. (psychopomp)

photoshop CS/wacom graphire/4 hours/ soundtrack: cocoon OST by -the great- james horner

para los que juegan mitos, sip, es la version 2.0 de la vieja trempulcahue :)

Practicamente cuatro carontes mujeres... Interesante, ser llevado por una ballena hacia el otro mundo atraves del mar ..., no se escucha nada mal...

Aside from the person on the whale's back it makes me think of the Pines of Rome segment from fantasia 2000, great piece as usual man, outstanding

Awesome work! I adore how the whales and the ocean came out (tho it's a beautiful work in general XD)!

Nice...I hadn't ever heard of that myth, and I live in Lationamerica...
What other wonders may Chile hide, I wonder? ;)

the only thing i can think of is the intro to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie.
