Turtle Drakes Collide

December 26, 2013

It’s day two of my Epic Fantasy Twelve Days of Christmas, and for my second piece I decided to represent Two Turtle Doves with much more epic Turtle Drakes. These two are not the lovey-dovey pair you think of when you think of Turtle Doves, in fact, they are trying to kill each other.

2, Turtle Drakes Collide

I based my drakes design on snap turtles, in particular, alligator snap turtles, and did my best to make their wings look as though they can fold them up, interlocking their scales, and use them as a shield/shell for protection, as well as spread them out and fly. Probably a completely impractical design, but it’s fantasy, and I’m doing this all in a bit of a rush, so don’t be too harsh on me.
