View Full Version : Turtle thing

09 September 2004, 03:26 AM
I was with my girlfriend and she asked me to draw a turtle. So I drew her a turtle real quickly and I ended up liking it. This is one of my first color drawings on a tablet.

Let me know what you guys think.

Nice turtle but the glary (hope itīs the right word) tortoise shell doesn`t fit to the other colours. :hmm:

For the beginning not bad, i canīt do it better. :)

Hi Tempest! I have some comments on your work.

first: to be your first image it seems very clear, surely you have experience
on hand drawing on real paper ;)

second.. I like definitively the shot angle and the composition
of the turtle on painting.. that ground tells the viewer the turetle is "climbing"
and it's an effort doing this, nice choice!

let me comment some more about other things you could emprove and let your girlfriend
be happier ;)

The shell need some depth (lyers of colour to add thickness, and bumpiness)
same for the skin, I do not suggest you to search for photoreal, but adding details
always it's worth the effort, believe me.

hope these hlep you! thanbks for sharing!
