Mock Turtle II


I've let this sit way too long. I finally pushed on it some tonight for about an hour.
I'd been having some trouble with the shell pieces but I think making them darker helped. Not sure about the background, but I'm leaning away from anything literal, I think. And perhaps the front flippers could use some more contrast. Reactions or ideas would be great.

Wow! Now that's awesome! The face is sooooo cool, great job!

The one thing that is distracting right now is the goo lines... I think they are too straight... goo tends to have a curve to it as gravity pulls the center section of the goo down. I think that would help make it feel more realistic, and less like cords attached to his body.

Really awesome though,I think this could really turn out to be a killer piece for you.

That is coming along really well. The face is really well done. The eyes really look wet, like he's crying.
