"I'll leave the ocean behind~"

This image has been on my mind lately and i've just been itching to draw it..really bad.
I drew this to just calm me down and relieve my stress (.. but i ended up getting more stressed, bah) and i needed to practice drawing animals and backgrounds anyway. I tried to capture the feeling in aquariums, y'know that wondrous, filled with awe feeling? Yeah, dunno how well that turned out.

There's just something about the ocean that fascinates me, maybe it's the fact that it may seem bland from the surface but deep down below it's filled so much life. I'm terrified with the concept of ever swimming there though, so i'll just happily stick to aquariums and drawing it.

... oh and i doubt a whale would ever swim that close to the corals and all, but let's just imagine lol

I thought this song kinda suited this image well ~ [link]
Took about 3 days, 6-7 hrs a day.
All done on Photoshop CS3
... i'm sorry, im bad at drawing animals ; u;/

EDIT;;; fixed the dome.. i don't know why the quality looks bad on DA T__T. So just full view it <3
