Default minke whale

Hi everyone. Long time no post.

Thought i would start a small animation of a whale, with some reef sharks swimming around to show the size of the whale.
Planning on modeling some fish, and a few jelly fish as well. Still got little more work on the lighting i think.

Update update, that's an order lol.
I know lighting is an artform on its own, but it would be so cool if you can nail the serene underwater scene look with light and shadow really showing off the form of this majestic animal.

Can't wait to see it with the planned additions for scale
