My mom found a huge Snapping turtle near the canal and snapped a picture. This got a silver key in Scholastics for 2015-2016 school year. I used Pen and watercolor on the turtle and portions of the background. Then layers acrylic paint in the foreground. Finally I added colored pencil over all of it.

Really nice work with the pen in this one, adding the lines; making it both a bit comic-ish, yet adding a sense of depth and realism at the same time... it doesn't look like a photo, but I think it might be more due to the vivid colors surrounding the turtle, than the motive itself, it's all surprisingly realistic. A very calm piece to look at too, ambient and pure.
