EDIT: Site with final winners is up!
It's really weird seeing your art in a place where you didn't put it - featured on a site compiled by an author I adore, of all things haha. But really, thanks for all the support! Go enjoy the other submissions too, they're all fantastic~

For Neil Gaiman's "A Calendar of Tales", inspired by the story for February.

There's a ton of really amazing entries for all the stories in this collection. I'll be honest, I'm a little intimidated, haha.;;;
Either way, this was fun to do. I'll probably do one for another month if I get the chance - really inspiring, these little tales.

I love drawing whales. I've drawn dozens of whales in the last few years. This blows every single whale of mine...out of the water! HIT ME WITH A RIMSHOT, DRUMMER! OH!

I blame that joke on the five hours of sleep I've had in the last three days. I apologize to everybody.

Seriously though, the simplicity and striking colors of this picture really make it bold and memorable. PLUS THAT WHALE LOOKS SO DAMN HAPPY. If it wasn't so late I'd be inspired to start painting.

happy whale was fun to draw hehe
but yah, I've never really attempted to draw a whale before this piece, so I'm glad this one turned out alright!

When I can't think of anything new to draw I default to one of three things; happy whales, mustachioed stern looking puppies or myself either trying to think of something to draw or doing something ridiculous. By the time I draw one of those new doodles usually start flowing out. Your gallery is full of brilliant pictures. I don't know why I'm not already watching you. I'll fix that in a second.
I wish I would have joined dA years ago, seeing all of these phenomenal artists has inspired me to push myself. If I had this motivation in high school I would be painting like you by now. I'm far behind where I should be. I'll fix that, though...

The simplicity of this is stunning, because I feel that this piece holds much complexity. I just love the contrast of the warm and cool colors, and the overall composition was just lovely. There were just so many things in this piece that pulled me in, and the movement of this piece only aided in the ease and joy of my exploration. Fantastic, lovely job. I really wish I could say what, but there's something about this that is just great. It was definitely a pleasure to view!! So congrats on the DD because I think it was well deserved.

I would definitely suggest full view to everyone. It makes it ten times more amazing, being able to see all the detail and artistic aspects up close and personal :love:

The whale is stylish, and its blue color appeals to me, the colors and style of lines appeal to me on a big level.
