Best Friends: Dolphins by LyssyRae Best Friends: Dolphins by LyssyRae
Some lucky people in this world get the opportunity to meet and connect with people who understand them, like nobody else can. This past summer I was blessed with the chance to meet, not only 22 (and now, 23) wonderful dolphins who I now consider my family, but 13 girls (and one poor boy) that shared my same passion. Of those 14 people, these 7 girls have become some of the best friends I could possibly ask for.

Haylee, Natalie, Megan, Sarah, Mikhayla, Emily, Steph <3

I am submitting this piece to a contest supporting animal rights. I chose this piece in hopes to raise awareness of the Taiji dolphin slaughter. Check out the contest:

Those are beautiful sketches, well done. It just shows how different each dolphin is and has their own personality.

Beautiful! What technique did you use (I'm sorry, I'm totally ignorant in drawing and painting).

Thanks so much! Yes, I did it in graphite. I have been working with charcoal a lot but I find that I have more control with fine lines in graphite. Thanks for the fave!!
