It's amazing. I spend a lot of time trying so hard to refine some of my work, trying to convey some deep hidden meaning that I seem to be only able to hint at metaphorically, and the piece gets completely ignored. This originated as a simple, playful little sketch that I colored in photoshop, playing around with realistic textures and tones from a real sea turtle, and it like, took maybe half an hour to do, and it's like, everyone's favorite. I guess maybe that's a clue to me that I'm trying too hard, and like this little guy, I need to cut loose.
Eeeeeeeeee! XD this is just so Adorable!!! I like the carefree smile and the lazy pose, the surfer-dude stlye fits this fellow just dandy XD; the the colors are nice and soft, not too bright, not too dark, I love it!
I would so buy one of these! Happy Surfing Turtle (tm) needs to become an official mascot of something, he's too cute and jovial to pass up. You should give him an underground internetfollowing and we can wear his shirts around and be geeky and cool like the people who wear webcomic shirts.
Hey this little guys lookin pretty good! I hoep you do more like him! You may wanna touch up the wave just a bit though. It's looks a little big at the tip when it would likely be more pointed. Keep it up!
