Murtle the turtle is cruising the ocean, gliding through the seaweed down to the coral. What is he looking for? I have no idea I don't speak turtle.
When creating this I wanted Murtle to be the sole focus. The background was created using a whole bunch of tiny circles ( drawing these tiny circles puts you in a relaxed hypnotic state)
The mid ground I tried to put as little detail in as possible to allow Murtle to shine.
With Murlte I used cross-hatching and simple shading to create shape and depth.
Created using pen and ink.
Murtle comes framed ready to hang.
