Island of the Blue Dolphins - the Sea Creature by kelleybean86 Island of the Blue Dolphins - the Sea Creature by kelleybean86
Another of my illustrations for the book The Island of the Blue Dolphins. In this scene, Karana discovers a giant octopus and decides that, from that moment on, they are mortal enemies.

You can read about the process for this illustration at my blog: kmcmorris.blogspot.com/2013/05…

Prints available at my INPRNT store: www.inprnt.com/gallery/kmcmorr…

Actually, it's based on a novel called "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott Fitzgerald. It's a great book.
