Line Art or Model: Usobuki Oil



Pencil scribbling :)

"Why do you kill Whales?
For their oil..!
Why do you need the oil?
To keep the harpoons from rusting..!"

hi paul! so nice to see u back in these challenges! the pencil work is once again marvelous, the story about needing oil for harpoons is great as well, although its a bit cruel.. but we like cruel, bwahaha! The only thing that bothers me a bit at the moment is the mask that the guy is wearing. Very unique to me though, but maybe too strange. Just my opinion ofcors. good luck with ur further development!

Thanks.......much appreciated

TheFirstAngel: Thank you very much....I'm very excited about this one.

BaronImpossible: Cheers, I'll be ok for time, I suppose it allows you to see it with fresh eyes each day.....fixing any mistakes.

Kei-Acedera: Yes, poor whale....that's the motivation for the art.

musi: Thank you very much.

NinjaA55N: Nice to hear from you, alson. The mask is an Usobuki mask, they are used in Japanese plays. They humerously reflect the problems of the human condition.
The expression on the mask contributes to a sense of the absurdity of life..! As well as looking freaky, I believe it fits perfectly into the actions of the guy..........a pointless act.

DogMan3d: thanks

icedeyes: I feel really sorry for it as well. My aim is for everyone to feel the same by the time i've finished.

More soon.

Paul

Looking wicked. What do you feed the whale on? Blubber?

I guess he's a baby whale - his expression his heartbreaking. Great stuff,

flyingP: Thanks for the compliment, you know me, I love working with a pencil

Quills: I'm attempting to portray the Whale being kept alive artificially, fed by the sort of tubes etc you'd get in a hospital...in this case being kept alive in the most horrible way to get my point across. It's a Beluga whale, they're not that big anyway. That's half the reason I chose it, simply from a compositional point of view..plus, with Beluga's being white, it has the symbolism that i require, because sometimes white is used to sygnify death.

Thanks for your comments.......much appreciated.

Yeah I should have put a in after blubber - just had the same kind of cyclical thing going on...you feed the whale with whale blubber to keep it alive to kill more whales to feed the whale...and so on. So fear not, the artificial life system thing does come across. Its a cool idea anyhoo and the cutest whale I've seen for some time!
