Yes I know it has been ages sense I really did anything here. Well life likes throwing shit at you that you cant control.
Anyways I have a question to any marine artists out there.
Not many know this, but if you take a peek at one of my art folders here you'll find concept works for a graphic novel I plan to do that is yes, about Dolphins. It's story is coming more together and missing details or nonsense details and kinks are being worked out and made solid.
Now the main character to this story is going to be a dolphin calf, and we will see him grow a bit in the story however I run into a snag.
I have no idea how to draw a dolphin to where it LOOKS like a calf, to where you can recognize it as such.
Now I have looked up photos, and looked at other refs, but most photos are just of the head coming up for air or a blury underwater shot or a shot that don't show off a sideways profile so I can really see what changes in body shape do calfs have.
There is also size... everything I'm finding is of newborns. While I am working with a calf, I'm working with one not so young. More like the still defendant on mom but old enough to start being weaned.
Most drawings I've found just take an adult and shrink it down, then recolor it for the calf version... That wont work for me as well.. if it's alone.. nothing else with it... it's going to look like an adult still.
Aside making the eyes bigger and perhaps shortening the beak, I don't know how to make it clear that what I'm drawing is a calf.
I am also going to need an orca calf as well, and really my tries at such are evident that I too suffer from the 'take an adult and size it down and make the eyes bigger' deal.
I want to learn the true dimensions of calf's, so when you look at one, you know it's a calf!
So if anyone has a reference guide that is NOT taking an adult and just re-sizing the lines, or would care to draw up a quick ref guide it would be appreciated.
