Eastern Box Turtle by ART-fromthe-HEART Eastern Box Turtle by ART-fromthe-HEART
Yup, another pen & ink drawing. This time an eastern box turtle, inspired by the very turtle that walked across our front yard (and he's also the one I've painted before in the painting "Smile!") I love inking textures, like his scaly neck and legs. :D

Frame pending, but he is for sale once I get him under glass and all.

I so love all of the texture work on this! Perhaps one day you will show me how to do such great texturing? When you have time, I'm sure.;)
Truly another grand work from the masterful artist  known only as Art-fromthe-heart!

:nod: Texturing with ink is actually quite easy, and I should do a video tutorial to show that. Thank you! I'll try and do that!

YAY turtles!! He's a beauty! :D I imagine it must be wonderful to live at a place where turtles cross your way! I read a book about tortoises a while ago, they're such fascinating creatures...

:D Thank you! We've seen a bunch of turtle this year, more than normal. That and tons more toadies. They're loving the overabundance of rain we've gotten. Does Germany not have many turtles? :o

The only native turtle to Germany and Central Europe is the European pond turtle, a long-living freshwater species which is very rare. All other turtles you see here were introduced and are most certainly pets that were released and won't live long. The read-eared slider somehow made it to establish small populations in Germany... As you see, thinking of how many turtles you have makes your area really exotic to me! Turtles don't have an easy life over here. :(
