My first attempt at a killer whale sculpt. :)

It’s Kasatka and I’m nowhere near done painting, so be gentle.

Scale is 2%, so 5.3 meter Kasatka is here 10.6 cm.

I noticed I placed the belly button too far down on the sculpt, today when I found better belly-shots for painting her. So I simply covered that up and painted a little belly button higher up. :P

I can’t help it. I HAD to reblog. TEACH ME. HOLY HELL. I suck at stuff like this.

It’s such a nice feeling that we have such talented guys on Earth. The sculpture is reeeeealy awesome, keep it up :D

Many blogs reposting pictures from kanduv on Flickr and I found photos of that sausage Nami. She is so young and thin here! I wonder, which year it was. 90-s?

Also, does anyone know the real source of these photos?

 I think this is the source :3
the date the site says they were taken was 13th February 1994 so 90’s was right :D

Thank you again! :3

You guys should tell me your birthdays so I can make you little virtual birthday cards when they roll around.

You don’t have to. I just want to do something for everybody. :)

No, I’m not joking: this is not a topic that I would like to make jokes of

I’m really glad, that Naomi Rose visited Russia for this discussion and it’s really nice to see Gayane Petrosyan creating a documentary. I want to be one of the first visitors! 

As it turned out at the conference which ended a week ago, conference organizer, Marine Mammal Council, is currently in the drafting of the rules “of the content and use of marine mammals at the dolphinariums, their capture and transportation.” 

This project will be submitted to the relevant ministries and is expected to become the basis for developing appropriate state regulation. Development of the project has been going on for about six months!
