I've always been fascinated by Herman Melville's classic book 'Moby Dick' and decided to bring it to life with this illustration.

Two colours on jade.

"From hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee. Ye damned whale."

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! It feels odd being able to comment on one of my designs after all the Threadwars but I really appreciate the kind words.

Your use of the giant whale to balance out the amazing details of the page-turner turned ocean below is so expertly done. Love how the wave mimics a page being advanced as well, all-around perfect material for your detailed, classic style.

We're whalers on the moon. We carry our harpoons. But there ain't no whales so we tell tall tales because we're whalers on the moon.

Woah - thanks everyone and thanks Evan - I appreciate your comments.

As for placement Gebe - a bit lower is fine. I'm not really sure quite where you have in mind tbh - I was going for pretty much central give or take...

Fantastic illo! I love literary references in designs, and this is a great homage to Moby Dick. Plus, whales are cool, and albino whales, cooler. The colour combo rocks. 5$
