About this artwork
It's as if the sea itself has become enraged at the crew of an unfortunate boat. A massive sea creature from the depths, a gigantic sperm whale, dwarfing the wooden vessel with its great size, pursues the sailing ship. The seas churn and the violent waves threaten to smash it. All the while, a violent storm rolls across the sky chasing them as it forks lightning from black clouds into the water.
I started this scene some time ago. I had sculpted the whale for one of my video tutorials (https://youtu.be/Rv3JrW04o0Q), and I wanted to use it an another scene. After rendering it though, I let it sit for about 8 months unfinished. I was actually about to cull it from my hard drive, but decided to give it a second chance. After painting in the storm and churning seas as well as touching up the whale and ship, I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
The idea was inspired a bit when I saw a trailer of "Heart of the Sea" a movie about the events that inspired "Moby Dick".
