All right, voici une nouvelle version de Monsieur La Tortue ! This new and improved version is thanks to the great community of artists over at Crimson Daggers. A big thanks to Simon Palmer, David Shearer, and Jacob Anderson for their paint-overs!

Also, after doing so much digital painting I decided to revisit “Pelagic Hominid”, so I could push those values a bit more:

It’s a big difference, no?! I don’t know why, but I’m always reluctant/lazy/hesitant to push my values the way I do in my oils. Maybe it’s just that I never feel like my lines and edges can be as precise and crisp in digital–but that’s not true, I’m pretty sure it’s strictly related to my ability to stick with it!
