New Beginnings by Chaotica-I New Beginnings by Chaotica-I
Digital Painting of Kiska and Ike, Orcas at Marineland.
Painted in Photoshop CS5, using several of my own photos as reference.
About 8 hours of work.

Please note that I don't have time to say "thank you" for every favourite, but I appreciate them all nonetheless! Thank you all for your support!!!


I know, it isn't my most interesting work... or my best. It isn't really a spectacular image, but when I saw Kiska and Ike together, I knew I was going to paint them. Watching the pair was fascinating. Ike frequently swam right beneath her, brushing up against her softly. It was beautiful.
I missed seeing Kiska last season, she was the main reason I went to Marineland every year when I was a child. She is the first cetacean that I ever loved... watching her on Saturday made me feel five years old again, all full of wonder :love:
