The Wonder From Down Under by lotus-devil The Wonder From Down Under by lotus-devil
Under the sea, that is :heart:

This is my “welcome back to DA” pic. It’s got good feel to it :D

I did this pic about a month ago when my Composition teacher was giving us a 90 minute lecture on plagiarism. It was either draw or go comatose, so I drew, not surprisingly ;P
I basically wanted to make an underwater character who had purple hair :confused:

This guy’s a new character of mine, but I still haven’t given him a name. I’m thinking of going with Izzy.
Anyways, he’s got a surfer dude kind of attitude, and is very laid back and fun to be with.
He’s an anthro of the Commerson’s dolphin, which I chose simply because it had an easy color scheme ^^;
He does a lot of underwater sports, but his main job is to serve as a messenger, escort, and sometimes a fighter for Leviathan and his Clan.

Done in 1.5 hours
Done with Sakura Pen, Sharpies, and colored pencils
This chara (Izzy), Leviathan and Leviathan Clan, art © me

I know wristbands are pointless/ stupid underwater, but I wanted to create a sportier look for him :XD:
Lemme know what you think of his name!
And man is it good to be back! :boogie:

:love: Everyone!

no worries and i'm sorry for posting so much of late :D finaly been freed from college for the mean time and my access has now become limited to ^^;

Welcome back! :D

I like the design, the colour scheme and accesories got that nice 'sporty' look to it :)
you know, I actually thought he was an orca anthro before I read the description :lol: I guess it was because of the colours XD;

well, if you haven't fully decided on a name yet, how about 'Marinus'?
It's an Ancient roman and also Dutch name with a 'water' theme to it :D
here's the description:"From the Roman family name Marinus, which derives either from the name MARIUS or from the Latin word marinus "of the sea"."

but 'Izzy' sounds nice too when I think of it, has a playful feel to it :D

haha, thanks! I'm glad to be back! :hug:
I'm glad I got the look across :D and yeah, I realized that after I decided on the commerson's dolphin that it did look a lot like an orcs, but they are related, so it makes sense ^^; I just went with the commerson's because it had a easy color scheme :giggle:
Marunis is a really good name, good feel to it, though a little bit royal ;P
I'll definitely consider it, and i'm glad that you like Izzy too :glomp:

Mershark dude! Ooo, he can be friends with my mershark dude, Zylanor. [link]
lotus-devil Jun 27, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
haha, well Izzy is a commerson's dolphin, but I think it'd be great it they were friends :D
What kind of shark is Zylanor ? I could try doing a pic of these two sometime :D
MelyssaThePunkRocker Jun 27, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I am surprised to meet another person that knows of that dolphin species. Zylanor is a mako mershark. The one you saw is a remake of this one of him that I drew SO long ago when I was...12...I think.

Yes, that would be cool. Do not fret, though. Zylanor would not try to eat Izzy.
lotus-devil Jun 27, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
haha, what can I say, great minds think alike (repetive, but true) So he's a mako eh, good species, violent as hell, but good :D
And it's a good think that Zy wouldn't eat Iz, Izzy's boss and lord, Leviathan would be pissed as hell :XD:
I'll see what I can doo, and thanks! :hug:

Zylanor could maybe be his bodyguard, as well as a best friend? *hig* (that means big hug)
