Decided NOT to restrict my palette this time...
here's the wip
thanks everyone! glad you liked it
@Zizka - yeah... I wasn't really concerned with the palette so it has way too many unnecessary colors... and thanks!
@inphy - thanks! as for the reference: here
It's a nice looking turtle. Do you still have the reference linked somewhere?
75 colors, oh my!
But the turtle looks nice and soothing and cool and I like it.
it very good work! :)
Nice work. I like the crisp feel of it.
But colour restriction is nice :( Nonetheless good work, very realistic, with a well-caught light source. The only thing that concerns me is the shadow at the bottom of shield - it's sketchy just doesn't fit th smoothness of the rest.
Wow, good work!
