I adopted these three bottlenose dolphin designs from WolverineGuardian of deviantart, and since I haven’t decided which of my bottlenose-dolphin-OCs-who-need-designs I want to use these for but wanted to draw these right away, I drew ‘em anyway. I might start making refs for ‘em and finish ‘em / update ‘em later, when I decide who these three should be. \o/

Here’s what might become the permanent designs of Lanky the northern right whale dolphin, Dee-dee the Pacific white-sided dolphin, and their hybrid calf. Or at least what will probably be their designs for a long time. Sometime I’ll have to think of better names for them, though these could stay their nicknames, anyway… and their baby needs a name, or at least a nickname, too…

My little bit of a big public collab thing on deviantart in which people draw their main dolphin OC to be included in a picture with ‘em all in it. So this is mine, the protagonist of a novel I’ve been working on for eons with little progress done, and who I haven’t drawn for at least a few months (though at least he actually has been drawn before, unlike most of my OCs).

An entry for the deviantart group CetaMonthlyChallenge’s July contest about endangered cetacean species. 

The Maui dolphin is a subspecies of Hector’s dolphin. This is the smallest and rarest dolphin subspecies. It’s also known as the North Island Hector’s Dolphins since they live on the west coast of that part of New Zealand; the other Hector’s dolphins live around the South Island and are endangered (still several thousand left), while the Maui dolphins are critically endangered. 

I might make these OCs even though I’ve been trying to keep most of my dolphin OCs as north Pacific species for my novel… but I could have one or two Maui dolphin OCs anyway perhaps, maybe I could make up a little story of their own… ;o;

This is a Foi, one of a closed original species belonging to capt-lunanus (the name of his main deviantart account); he kindly designed this particular individual for me, for free (perhaps because I bug him on skype so much). I have yet to think of a name for this one. I think I’ll draw it standing up like a person sometime, since they can, hopefully by then I’ll have thought of a name for it. ;o;
