Space Turtle Surfs the Cosmos by ~bzyglowi " This is just so full of JOY I have completely fallen in love with it. The bright, vibrant colours and bold shapes just leap out from the page, and the beautifully styled steam punk turtle is effortlessly cool gliding through it all. Plus, technically, I'm in awe that that is watercolour. The blending is beautiful - the colours in the turtle's skin are so well chosen!" ( Suggested by Mollinda and Featured by Katmomma )

Hey! Dude I absolutely loved this work, in fact, I was looking for pictures of turtles cuz I want a tattoo of one of them. Then I found this. Question is: may I use your work to tattoo on me? I rather ask for permission before do that! I'll wait for your answer, pal. Ps.: Sorry for my bad english. I'm a spanish speaker.

That is true, the first animal in space was a dog. But the first animal to go around the moon and back was a turtle (or turtles...it might've had some space turtle buddies) :D

This is really awesome. I love the contrast between the turtle's spots and base color, and goggles are always a good design choice. The spiral pattern in the space scene is really appealing, and I adore the color scheme. Congrats on the DD!
