Sir Seal Breath

Here is the pencil sketch of old Seal Breath.  I scanned it into my computer and darkened the line.  I vectorized the sketch so that it was a separate editable shape.  Then I filled in the blacks and whites.

Next, I pulled up an old abstract acrylic painting that I already had in my digital library (I have over 100 to choose from).  I like to use these as backgrounds, textures, and fills. I placed the whale on the abstract and then cropped it as a background.  I adjusted the colors and used a digital air brush to drop in a shadow.  I added a couple of outlines as a frame (this is an easy step that gives a piece a nice finished look.)

Ladies and Gentlemen, Here to sing his hauntingly beautiful rendition of "Ave Maria", I present Sir Seal Breath.
