Stejneger's beaked whale by namu-the-orca Stejneger's beaked whale by namu-the-orca
And another beaked whale! :D

Man, these guys are so cool, you would not believe it. Those dark heads, and beautiful eyes... They're one of my favourite beaked whales . This is a painting/info sheet I made for the #Exp-Marine-Mammals contest, sadly enough there aren't too many entries anymore, and especially not for the beakeds D: Really, you should all go and enter, because beaked whales are awesome and deserve more love. If you spot any typos, please tell me, then I'll change it :)

oh wow those blue-purples, it's rare to see such colours on a mammal <3 this such a pretty species! nice reference illustration too, the beaked whales are usually pretty difficult to find references of (especially compared to more popular kinds like dolphins and orcas).

Thank you very much for the lovely comment! :aww: I am, to be honest, everything but sure about the colour of the male. You see, I got the colours from a photo of a dead animal. Dolphins and whales turn black or dark blue very quickly upon death, so it might be that it is in fact differently coloured while still alive. No doubt about the 'juvenile' though, since that individual stranded alive :)
