Art Portal doubles showdown.

The theme was first contact, we wasnt able to fully realise our idea due to time, but this was meant to be an encounter with humans and a technologically advanced alien race of whale beings thats crash landed on earth 10,000 years ago and have since colonised our oceans.

Although their ancestors had advanced technology at their disposal, due to the crash the whale beings had to adopt a new way of life that abandoned scientific advancement, over the years this knowledge was lost, although the whale beings still remain a very knoble and wise race.

A whale being breaking ancient ruling that prohibits contact with other sentient life forms. Hes trying draw where his people came from in the sand.
