Here are the various stages of the turtle in process. I started with Modeling the hair, beard and mustache.
I then moved on to painting the face and body. Even though you most likely will not see the chest, I still painted in brown just in case.
Finally I dressed him in a shirt and jacket using a medium called Paverpol which hardens the fabric. I feels like plastic. Finally, after finishing the painting and the the last details, I loaded him on the truck and away he went. What a great opportunity and a great project!
