Lots done this morning…began with the Weddell seals and then redid the humpback whale and repositioned it to give it more impact. Additionally, whilst showing the seal, I wanted some action and a sense of story and consequently added in the Killer whales pushing up a wave and trying to dislodge the seal – should be interesting to ink!
I wanted to give the map a feel of the old type of maps with the odd takes on sea creatures, so studied them a little too. Added in the border of rope and then outlined the writing in the banners. Just about to start the sea which is a challenge before the toughest bit… the inking, where the slightest mistake can be a disaster! I have included a few images of old maps and sea monsters that I found whilst researching. Great aren’t they?
