Black Tortoise of the North by ExiledChaos Black Tortoise of the North by ExiledChaos
4 Part Watercolor project. We made 4 paintings with one connecting theme. I chose the 4 Symbols in Chinese constellation mapping .

This is, of course, the Black Tortoise of the North, also representing water and winter. Also notice the stars! I like this one the most =)

Feehhh.... I could go on, but I don't feel like it right now >.< After spending yesterday wallowing in self pity over my crappy birthday I felt like doing something proactive ^^; lol. (I can't believe I'm 23 >>; shit. I hope I don't get injured or sick and diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie!!! X__x)

Watercolor, on 300lb arches coldpress wc paper. Sorry for the crappy photos; I tried to fix them the best I could. Should come up with detail shots soon.


:bulletblack: Black Tortoise of the North

:bulletblue: Azure Dragon of the East

:bulletred: Vermilion Bird of the South

:bulletwhite: White Tiger of the West

...:bulletblack:..
:bulletwhite:...:bulletblue: See Combined 4 Symbols

nothing dear, you know you have a unique style of drawing apart the meaning of the drawing is interesting, you could make more turtles, as they are very pretty, do not you think?

I do love sea turtles. I haven't drawn many animals in general, but i love nature and draw much inspiration from it. I will try to draw more animals and sea creatures. I have a friend that always draws sea turtles very well and often, so maybe that might also be a reason I don't draw more of them, haha..

xD lol, ohhh I'm a drama queen, but I guess I'm most worried about my lack of healthcare now >>; No daring rescues now. Hopefully I'll stay health till I can make enough money to get some more :paranoid:

lol, and thanks! :hug:

ha, okay. I can see that.

I don't have health care either. I will in a few months from my job. But right now, I got nothing. And I always get sick through Thanksgiving.

WISH ME LUCK. Hehe.

I wish you luck as well <3

I think this is my favorite of the four-- it also seems to have the crispest scan. You should bring them in to Illustration if you can; I'd like to see them in person.

ok. I turned them into Kathy, but they should be in her office. We can go see them tomorrow if you want.
