Avatar Kurma

Kurma, the second avatar of Vishnu. Brush pen and tech pen. I fell in love with the designs of the avatars of Vishnu ever since I did a poster displaying all ten in my high-school world's religions class with the wonderful Karen Reeves!
His overall design and silhouette are inspired by a lotus. I used my favorite turtle, the red banded slider, as the base with sea turtle flippers. He goes into "swim mode" by orienting himself horizontal and using the fins as propellers.
