Tea with Friends and a Turtle

Here is an image that started out as a quick doodle and I finished it in Photoshop. It was an excuse to play with the Cintiq and it got a little out of hand.

The turtle is very loosely based on a Galapagos turtle. I was also inspired by tribal decoration in Africa using plants and flowers.

I need to do more experimentation with Painter now that my system is a LOT faster. It was clunky on my old computer.


  1. faster makes sooo much difference...'way less frustration! Fun image - there's gotta be a story here...

  2. Looks great! Yes, it's so much easier to be creative when your system manages to keep up.
