The Texture that you ended up with is really amazing! I can't believe that's just cardboard. ^^

Ingenuity meet cardboard! XD
It looked like it was made out of wood, but cardboard is much cooler.
Looks like the shell (how could you get a flat surface like that? O.o ) and facial area took the longest.

THANKS!! i should put up drawings i had to do for the inside structure but i basically had half of ovals in smaller sizes then covered them in papermache from the card board we had to take apart.... i spent sooo many hours sticky and wet from that and yeah the head took a while but i love it!

OH! Okay. -nodnod- I get how it was done now.
Kudos to you! XD It sounded like a tough job. Mr. Turtle seems happy to be born, though.

I do too.

It's pretty and I'd love to have one someday 'coz it's cute and very adorable.
Keep up the good work with your art!
I'm sure, someday, you'll make a name out of it or should I say famous!

By the way, is it hard to do?

:blowkiss:
