Awesome! like the dragons' lazy cousin or something :D brilliant art, and ironically, there is a chinese creature, mythological of course, call a Dragonturtle... Turtledragon... bugger, one or the other anyway

lazy? dragon turtle is more of a turtle with some dragonic characteristics, I like to think mine is the other way round

Super-pretty - not many people can do orange and pink together - well done!
Here's my only contribution to your bf's penchant for turtles [link]

Haha, nice one! Eventually an interesting idea. It got boring in the last couple of weeks with next to no interesting deviations being submit. Nice to see gems around :nod:

:D I'm glad you like it. I know what you mean. I should do more of these dragon-animal hybrids.

Concerning hybrids you might perhaps want to check out this one here too: [link] . Another take on dragon-turtle hybrid which is very well done.

The color combo is great, and seems like a very original choice to me...at least, I've never seen any others with that theme. And...dragon turtles!!! Awesome B-) These just may be dragons even my sister can love (she's a turtle fan) :giggle:

haha, I'm guessing she's not a fan of dragons then?

Thanks, I like combining random things with dragons.

Very interesting creatures. The faces look bat-like. I love the creativity and the color scheme works quite well!

Thanks. It never really occurred to me that the colour scheme was that unusual while I was going them.

Thanks :D

I kind of cheated with the background. It's a photomanip of two pictures I took of sky and mountains. I added the mistyness though. I'm not very good at drawing backgrounds, maybe one day I will do a proper one...
