Does "Parent #1" and "Parent #2" work? I don't think American English is this artist's first language so they may not perceive the full connotation of the words the same as yourself.

How the hell would you have named it then? Turtle Female #1 + Turtle Female #2 = Sand crab???
He used turtles because of their shells being able to represent colour palettes, with the use of baby turtles representing the mix of the two colour palettes because *le gasp* children's physical appearance depends almost entirely on their parents.

This isn't heteronormative and it isn't childfree hating, for these reasons:
1. They're turtles. They need a female and male to reproduce. It's simple biology, or did you not learn that in school?
2. You don't want children? Literally no one gives a fuck. He didn't put baby turtles in here just to say to you that you must play your role in human survival and do the straight frickle frackle without a love glove.
3. As slinkydoodle mentioned below, they're fucking turtles.

Get off your fucking high horse and stop being so fucking oversensitive. Not everyone in the world is against you. Not everyone in the world gives a fuck about you. You are only 1 out of 7.5 billion people. Open your eyes and realise that.

Hi! I have a question, do I use two opposite saturated colors? Or one saturated and the other less? Im not professional and I'm afraid of doing something wrong then hurt people's eyes

My Mom has a job as decorator. In her business your 'Beauty Spot' is called 'Eyecatcher' because it catches the attention of the costumerNod . 
I think it's a nice word to describe that effect and I like the way you use it in your artHeart .
