Shellby by Avalik Shellby by Avalik
For ^Pixel-Spotlight's contest, found here.

She's a naked mole rat... with clothes, so maybe not so naked. She wears Shellby's (the turtle) food dish on her head. Because she's eccentric... if you hadn't already noticed the harness and leash around her turtle and figured that out for yourself. Her name is Violet.

The attributes I chose were:
a. bald
b. wears clothes
c. has a pet turtle
d. goofy (I kind of interpreted that as "eccentric" though)
e. all one colour
f. elder
g. short

Medium: Various coloured pencils on sketch paper
Time: 2 hours

General references

NOT for sale, sorry
Size: Dunno

NO prints, sorry
