I used to use my own fictional subspecies of orca, the blue orca (Orcinus orca caeruleus), as a sort of personal mascot. Could you do a drawing of it?

That looks fantastic! Have you ever considered using a scanner for your artwork? It eliminates the reflection from the pencil that happens in photographs.

Would that be an orca colored somewhat like a blue whale?

It would be the same color as the one TASN drew. I was thinking that an extremely rare recessive allele could cause its color.

I am gonna test it. But just to know, I don't they there is any cetacean that is actually blue. Most have various shades of grey.

It could be a maltese blue-grey more like a blue whale, then.

Here is the newest update to my size comparison.

I was quite satisfied when making the Atlantic white-sided dolphin. For me it is one of the best looking dolphins.

I am planning a magnified version for dolphins, porpoises ane monodontids.

Also, soon I will probably make my comeback to dinosaur art.

I am at the final phase for delphinids.

Here it is. Almost done.

Next I have the Irrawaddy dolphin, the Australian snubfin dolphin and the killer whale and then I am done with delphinids.

I have started making the orcas. I am wondering whether I should make an average or maximum sized individual when I make North Atlantic type 2

Here we have the beginning of my new drawing, which is a magnified version for small odontocetes.

Here is the orca section currently.

I want your opinion about the size of NA type 2 orcas. An average male is about 8,5 m. long and a female about a metre shorter. A maximum male is 9,8 m. long and a maximum female 8,5 m. long. I am in a dilemma about what size I should choose.

I decided to post the update cause I drew the Arabian common dolphin.

This is based on photos of dolphins in Oman. I am NOT certain about the accuracy of the depiction but it could be considered a first close look at the Arabian common dolphin.

I finished the Northern Hemisphere ecotypes.

Here is Argentavis. This is probably my first attempt to draw an anatomically accurate bird. I used several photos of Andean condors for reference.
