A somewhat unusual twist on the legendary Twitter failwhale
, made for the Romantic graphics competition at Altparty 2008 and placed #2 (note that Romantic != romantic). I wish I had won, because the first price included some silkscreen prints donated by Front 242.
I only had about three days to work on this and considering that I'm pretty happy with the result as usually I need about three months to finish a digital painting. I used a great tutorial
for the wave (though obviously it didn't end up looking half as nice). I was supposed to draw at least six birds (the original has eight), but ran out of time.
