DAY 6 (spirit) This was a fusion of Asian brushes and technical pens. When I think of Spirit and turtle, I'm reminded what I was told a lot as a youngster - to come out of my shell! Like the real critters though, it's not something you can force. It only happens when good and ready, then whole new world opens up to explore.

DAY 9 (pressure) Out came my Inktense pencils for this gigantic face-off, between prehistoric monsters! My translation of pressure, was to coerce. For whatever reason, these particular turtles wanted to use strong-arm tactics on each another. Despite having these enormous shells for protection, I was impressed by their ability to still intimidate. Also used, white and black ink.
DAY 7 (fan) I really loved the simplicity of this illustration. It was the first treatment of my subject, involving symbolism rather than physiology. It also involved another favourite subject of mine - Geisha! The overall design was the most straight forward I've done in the challenge yet. It came together really quickly. However, the actual turtle on the fan, was a different story.
