The great whale emerges from the deep…
I wanted to strike a mythical tone with this one – as if it were the picture cunjured up after overhearing a sailer’s strange tale in some firelit tavern.
A print of an original pen and ink illustration which was then painted digitally.
A featured review from DeviantArt.com:
“With Leviathan Strikes, Matt Brown has managed to portray a beast that looks, paradoxically, both menacing and friendly at once!! That, coupled with muted colors and a storybook style that is also reminiscent of wood-cut work, makes this illustration a charming and captivating piece of art.”
