Narwhal Auroras Photoshop Painting for World Whale Day 2018

Narwhals swim below an icy surface Illustration

World Whale Day digital painting of Narwhals swimming below the surface through a channel amidst the ice with Auroras, the Moon, and stars beyond.

This underwater scene was created with Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD and is part of the Starlight Safari Series; a collection of digital illustrations created on and for certain world wildlife days. Each illustration is set between sunset and sunrise, features at least one star, and usually has at least one young and one adult of the creature for that day.

We highly recommend watching “The Continuing Story of The Unicorn” which inspired this pieces (hint: Narwhals) and other wonderful music by The Irish Rovers.

If you enjoy watching timelapse videos of the painting process this video is on our art YouTube Channel (it was originally published on our first YouTube Channel, but was re-released on the Art Channel for World Whale Day 2019):
