Beluga



I colored this one a lot quicker..maybe 30 min. I thought underwater would be fun to do. Not "fox in a log" fun..but still a good time.

Benny Airplane!

This whale is killer....I mean, it's beluga! Maybe "beluga" could be an adjective to describe something that's awesome - or something that's BELUGA! eh...eh?
