Hope by Bandarai Hope by Bandarai

No matter how dark the night, there will always be a sunrise to chase away the shadows.

Let every dawn bring you hope.



Life has been ripping me a new one lately.
I need to take heed to these words.

Did a bit of winding down on this, which was originally just the speedpainted orca itself, as per suggestion by Giiana, from July.
But it didn't look right without a proper background...so added a bit more detail and a lot more colour. Super BRIGHT colours. :heart:

Not really 100% proud of this at all, but at least it's something to show you guys? Idk. OTL

That's very nice, I like the warm colours you used there. They make the Orca really pop out.
The water surface looks very pretty there too.

Aaaaaack! This moment you capture is just too precious for its own good! The colors are so warming and comforting, as is the whale's goofy, almost cartoony expression. : DD

Man, I don't know what it is, but your art just gives me a good feeling inside!

Ooh, this is so beautiful! I absolutely love your orca drawings. :D The warm sunrise lighting is so pretty, and I love how the water is reflecting said lighting. The stars above are also lovely. I like how you drew the orca itself, jumping right out of the water. Lovely drawing overall. ^^

I really love this one. Your cetacean art is always so lovely, and the colours and mood in this is quite stunning! It reminds me a lot of some beautiful photos I've seen of wild Norwegian orcas :)
Great work!
