Turtles in Love by ursulav Turtles in Love by ursulav
And of course, no turtle phase would be complete without a doodle of happy turtles in love! The expression on the male turtle, of cheerful shock, was what I liked most about this piece--I could have done any number of variations with the female, but I'd wanna keep that look. Although it does make me wonder what the female turtle just said.

I'm starting to see a trend with my cute bug-eyed animal critters. First I draw one. Then I draw another one, usually scared of something. (Scared cute things are just so damned adorable.) Then I draw them in love. Then I usually do one meeting the Pink Lizard. (There is, indeed, a pink-lizard-and-turtles piece half done somewhere...) Then they're generally out of my system, and I move on to the next species, although they may reappear again at later dates. Probably Joseph Campbell did a book somewhere detailing this progression--the "Lizard With A Thousand Faces" or "Transformation of Cute Through Time," or something, but it's new to me.

i guess there's not much of a critique for this, but i'll try.

the boy turtles top beak is a bit shorter than the girl turtles...

and i think maybe you should have tried to make the shells a bit more realistic/intricate?

not the best piece to crit, but i love the body language the boy turtle is giving off!

Someone quotes Joseph Campbell? I'm amused and impressed...with the reference and the art. I'm waiting for the symbolic hero character to search for his object of power with the inevitable foe.

:slow: I like this. It reminds me of when my boyfriend and I met. The expression on his face was just like that..and he stumbled backwards and said "my god, you're gorgeous." Then I got embarassed and asked him about the tatt on his neck, but he moved his head and I poked him in the eye. I freaked out becaus eI poked him in the eye so I went to give him a hug but then I tripped and knocked both of us over. We were in eachother's arms on the ground and we looked at each other and then he told me I was adorable (which made me even more embarassed). But yeah...that what this picture reminds me of :nod:
