Orca Anatomy by SkyebobPiepants Orca Anatomy by SkyebobPiepants
Proportions of an adult female orca.

Now, I don't know if this is perfect, but I think it works pretty well and it definitely helps me draw decently proportioned orcas.

I specify it to work for adult females, because from what I've noticed, calves are more 'compact'. I don't know how well it would work for males. I can't imagine drawing boys would be too different, they would just be bulkier.

But anyway, this helps me, so I thought it might also help other orca artists out there :)

Absolutely awesome! While I can't draw my way out of a wet paper bag, I love being able to see how others are able to draw these beautiful animals. Your circle system really makes sense to me and I'm glad you posted it!

This would seriously help me out with drawing Orca. I haven't for a while and I found a helpful chart by another artist. I also like how yours shows a close up of the female. :D
