I think my favourite thing about this piece is the baby cetacean is the only one paying any real attention to the divers. It just made me smile, thinking of the innocent curiosity displayed by all young creatures. :)

This is just so beautiful and they look absolutely magnificent. I can believe that creatures like this are biologically possible and out there somewhere. My gosh would I love to be a scientist to study a foreign planet like that. :iconhappytearsplz:  But first all our love and attention is reserved for our home planet right now.

I dig your style man, you take earth based creatures and make them just alien enough so that they're obviously alien, but believable as they're based on earth creatures.. very cool.. :)

These are just delightful. They resemble ancient bony fishes that roamed the oceans when the earth was young. A hint of natural influence while remaining uniquely alien.

Awesome, very beautiful and fascinating creatures you've invented here.

They remind me of the Star Whales from Doctor Who:

I'm not sure if those stories inspired your creativity, but nonetheless, your work is highly creative and commendable.
