Nice image! Looks like watercolor...?

Well, why are we here if not to create?

I think this is great.
Although there is a shape problem on the underside of this guy, just behind the fin there is a highlight and then shadow, it seems as though the dolphin is skinny, when I think that part should be rounded out, not inwards. I may be wrong, on that fact.
The colour is wonderful and the contouring is great on the front end, face and fins.

Awesome work

This is Airbrush Art (Body is proportionately correct)

The view of this Dolphin is an uncommon frontal view. The portrait was done from a photograph taken by a world renown underwater photographer. I have veiwed many photographic close-ups of Dolphins and this one really got my attention. I feel that photographs are the best guides to achieve realistic accuracy besides live models.
I have swam in the wild with a school of Dolphins.
Thank you all for your comments.
