"In a distant and second-hand set of dimensions, in an astral plane that was never meant to fly, the curling star-mists waver and part... See... Great A'Tuin the turtle comes, swimming slowly through the interstellar gulf, hydrogen frost on his ponderous limbs, his huge and ancient shell pocked With meteor craters. Through sea-sized eyes that are crusted with rheum and asteroid dust He stares fixedly at the Destination. In a brain bigger than a city, with geological Slowness, He thinks only of the Weight. Most of the weight is of course accounted for by Berilia, Tubul, Great T';Phon and Jerakeen, the four giant elephants upon whose broad and startanned shoulders the disc of the World rests, garlanded by the long waterfall at its vast circumference and domed by the baby-blue vault of Heaven. "
- "The Colour of Magic" - by Terry Pratchett

The Great Atuin, Discworld, In all it's glory.

Inspired by my sister's quick sketch of the Discworld, (my favorite book series) here: [link] , I decided to make my own picture of the Discworld.

Very nice and if i may .. missing a skydome.. elephants not very aligned ... and the world hub aside is missing more mountains... just my two cents..i think what you have done on a turtle level and the elephant detail is interestingly well ...
