Jack and the Sea Turtles by pirate-trish Jack and the Sea Turtles by pirate-trish
Well! This has been FOREVER in the making because painter was a whore and crashed several times, losing everything on me until I got fed up, inked it one last time off a screen cap I had made and then colored it all in photoshop. This was done 100% digital from reference for the pose on the guy (I had no real idea how people look when swimming y'know?), for the turtles and for the actual look of water from beneath it. I am soooo happy with how it came out! This is my first underwater picture and I had a lot of fun.

This is also the long awaited present for Vert's 16th birthday. See... I had no warning so when she was all yay my birthday is tomorrow! I was all auuugh!! But! She nicely said she would accept art so I asked what she'd like, she said Jack, my character from Avast U (a comic series I'm workin on) and shirtless X3 well I know she likes turtles and so does Jack so this was spawned. I am so happy. So so happy... I hope she is happy too! I wanted to give this to her before posting but what's a girl to do? I am way too excited and I wouldn't see her till later in the day! So I hope you see it here Vert!!!!! X3

Girl, I'm an idiot for missing this. You're perfect, and this is a highlight of your portfolio so far. Super-cool.
