What a wonderful painting, great job on the anatomy and pose :D I do have some remarks on the water webbing and general colouration, though. First of all, the background is lighter at the top to indicate the surface, but it does not get darker below to indicate depth. Also, the (really lovely) water webbing is on its back, while the sun would be coming from the top - after all he's swimming up side down - so they should be on his belly. Last but definitely not least, the colouration as a whole. By using 'true' black and yellowish tones for the white area, the animal does not appear to be in a water environment. When an orca is underwater, it is completely in shades of blue; with really dark and a little less sautrated blue for the black areas and light, bright, kinda greenish blue for the white areas :)

Thank you, Namu! I'll most likely redo the shading. :3
