Killer Whale Dancer

Here is my first piece for Jenni's Character Book. One of the items on the list of character design to do was a whale. This is my take on whale design. It was designed after the killer whale dancers of the pacific northwest tribes. They are people who wear masks depicting sacred spiritual animals and traditional clothing that dance during festival ceremonies, known as a potlatch, held by the native people of canada.
