See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
On his shell he holds the earth.

Great job guys!
@Stroudle: Wicked piece! A quick suggestion, try not to create dark area's with solid blacks, since pure black it isn't actually something that occurs in nature it looks out of place. Try instead to consider the environments ambient and reflective lighting to decide the right tone for those areas.
@Gorgoleon: Sick yo. Love the dead grass and weaving flora!
Thanks 6ideon! Your piece has a really eery calm to it. The colors are really great. I think if you threw some of the branches or foliage into the foreground, it would really make the scale that much more exaggerated. Really great work!
@Gorgoleon: Excellent detail! You really nailed the dead forest theme.
Stroudle great suggestion! I'll mess around with it a little more.
Its not much, but the practise was nice !
Just realised : I completely forgot the explorers ... and dead forest
The forest is below, way way down.
