Zaratanis by LoganGFX Zaratanis by LoganGFX
entry for a tournament on GFXFreaks. Now that votings over, I feel better about uploading it:P(the entries were anonymous).

This is a zaratan, a gigantic sea turtle from Arabian(?) mythology. Basically, a nigh-immortal turtle, spending most of its time sleeping and drifting with the ocean currents, over time ended up with entire ecosystems(and sometimes living creatures) on their backs. Just thought it was an unusual basis, instead of the 'usual suspects' of fantasy(unicorns, dragons, etc).

sweet work man , for sum reason i hate those stars in the sky

thanks:D The stars, I hardly even notice em now, but I guess I have been looking at it for a couple weeks now, so I guess I just overlook em. Besides, the main manip is the turtle anyway:P

Nah, srsly I was kinda going for an 'early evening/early morning' look overall, without resorting to the typical sunrise/sunset color scheme. I may go back and try that coloring, though...see how it works out.
