I tried to get it to look like the turtle but as I was getting there found that the simple look was cool.

I had to rewrite my comment after reading “it’s was the model” Not the carving in the fist picture! LOL! Nice work by the way!

To see how good this really is take it to the beach. If the sea gulls try to eat it, you know it is realistic. LOL
Great job, thanks for posting.

I was too fooled by the original, but the pics of the actual model shows it’s pretty darn good too. Thanks!

Like everyone else, both my wife and I thought it was a photo of an actual sea turtle. Absolutely fantastic.

That is extremely life like. I live in the Keys and help with turtle rescues and hatching. When I saw that I did a double take. So good!
