Despite what Arthur Clarke, They Might Be Giants, and Noah Baumbach would have you believe, the whale would eat the squid for breakfast. No contest.

Now, the whale versus the Cambodian five-eyed firebreathing kraken...

Wow, it's a great take on that challenge, my favorite so far! Very clever and subtle use of dithering!

Excellent! I really like the blue lighting around the edge of the whale and the shading around its mouth. The pose is really dynamic too.

The whale looks very determined so I definitely wouldn't count it out!

A fire breathing kraken, hahaha! That odd shape sure sparked some creativity here ;)
