Omayok the Tiny by shoomlah Omayok the Tiny by shoomlah
The first half of my character design final which I've been too damn lazy to upload. For heaven knows what reason, I started sketching orcas with legs in parkas the first week of our assignment and it sort of stuck. I liked the idea of a tiny orca youngling getting tormented by an adult seal from a neighboring tribe, and so Omayok came to be.

These are pretty awesome.  You have definitely captured the style of a culture's art at least as seen by an outsider from the mainstream American culture.

Hi! I came to tell you that I submitted it to my DA, here's the link --> [link]
Hope you like it ;A; since you're the creator, you'll be more critic xD there are some things and colors I didn't do on purpose, it's not that I had forgotten them ;D

Hi! I came to tell you that I loved your orca so much that I made a 3D version of it (it was a assignment for a 3D modeling class and I chose Omayok). The thing is that my firends really liked it : D but don't worry, I'm giving you all the credits about the design and the orca itself, so maybe for the next days you'll have more people watching you xD hope you don't get mad (I never thought that my modeling would be good since I'm not used to 3D modeling e_e;; )

Just a simple photoshop brush- it looks like a circle of dots, with 100% angle jitter.

The juxtaposition is surprising! :) It's quite delightful. I am pleased that you incorporated Inuit (Tlingit?) designs into the character's markings.
