It's how I imagine Cassiopeia from Momo, the novel by Michael Ende. :D!

Ha ha! Nice! Thank you!!
I have not read the book but I will look for it.

You read it! It's beautiful. And if you haven't, you should read The Neverending Story too (also by Michael Ende). The book is SO great!

I have a soft spot in my heart for reptiles. I studied herpetology excessively in high school when I had more time for such things-- This piece makes me happy.

But a more artistic analysis: I really like the sketchiness of the under-drawing. The yellows on the shell are also nice.

Thank you! Yes, I think the sketchy lines add a lot to the image.

I love tortoises!!I Have a Russian land tortoise named tortilla!

Ha, I like that name for the tortoise. We like them too. When we come across one in the roadway, we always make an effort to help it across. I met a snapping turtle on my road one day. He needed no help.

Something about your style is so interesting and new, even though the sketches themselves look like they took no more than 5 minutes... And that's a good thing :]
