Cetacean Drawing Contest - Orca in Galaxy Form

in cetacea-art •  last year  (edited)

Hi Steemians!

This is my ticket to the contest organized by @jacinta.sevilla

In this contest I made The killer whale or orca (Orcinus orca).

Day-to-day killer whale's behaviour are generally foraging, travelling, resting and socializing. Killer whales engage in frequent behaviour at the surface such as breaching (jumping completely out of the water) and tail-slapping. These activities may have a variety of purposes, such as courtship, communication, dislodging parasites, or play, just like as humans.

In the painting showed in the picture being wild and free. Wild in the sense that the killer whale has its own freedom and can move freely, whether or not be tamed by human perhaps having the capability to be wild by making its life free in the ocean.

Humans sometimes thinks like a whale whether or not tamed by another human but no individual is stopping them from it's free will and internal freedom. Because no one commands you other than yourself alone.

Also I use galaxy on the killer whale to represent as a mask. All of us have our very own unique side. But not everyone is confident enough to flaunt it to the world, which is sad. And what's more saddening is that others would actually hide it with a mask, just to please everybody.


First I prepared my materials- mechanical pen, paint brush, watercolor and watercolor paper.



I started with a sketch of the Orca


Third I painted it with black, dark and light pigment of violet, and then blue.


After I paint it, I dried it and put some white circles as a star.


In editing I just use the editor of the camera I have and choose Palma
