Update: won third place! www.deviantart.com/pendragon-a…

It's been a while since I've created an underwater photomanip, so after taking the spirit animal guide test to find that my spirit animal is a turtle, I thought this was a wonderful chance.

The turtle is known for its longevity, endurance and persistence. I'm not too sure about longevity for me hahaha but yes, I do believe that I possess the ability to endure and persist through hardship. When a solution is required, I'll make myself slow down and think, and persist through the problem. So this art piece shows someone looking at a different angle with her turtle spirit guide after slowing down and calming herself. That is how she came to reap her rewards in the form of gold (how I wish this can happen easily for me :giggle:). That being said, sometimes it's a little hard to not be on panic mode in real life. ^^; Rushing is what I hate to do though, because it really makes me stressed... and I already have problems with anxiety so! I really love it that the turtle is my spirit animal. :heart:

Thank you so much in advance to those who favourited!
Critiques are welcome.

The rest is painted.

If you like my work, how about buying me a coffee to show your support? Aww

Oh how delightful and absolutely creative...yin/yang of each other..... amazing work... the turtle!!! I relate sooooo much to what you share and feel here, including your life experiences!!! This is just perfection in so many ways and so intimate, deep into your creative subconscious and psychology, dealing with stress, life, productivity, survival... everything!!! The balance here is perfect between the two and the composition is too... Absolutely stunning work and I wish you so much luck in the challenge!!!! No matter what, you really are a winner because you really looked deep inside yourself for this and brought it to life through this work of art!!!! Brilliant!!!! Love la in love :happybounce: Airborne :squee: Party  (btw, could you write "Created for the Animal Spirit Guide Contest at :iconcrphotomanipulation: and :iconpendragon-arts: in the description please??? :heart: :heart: :heart:
