Lonesome George by DannArte Lonesome George by DannArte
This is the second biggest commision I've made for a client here in my country.
Lonesome George is said to be the last of it's kind, Pinta Island tortoise from Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. He is estimated to be about 100 years old. It's about 10" tall and it's made of cold porcelain.

Nice, Ironically I live in Ecuador and haven't had the opportunity to visit the islands XD I needed lots of ref pics. I'm glad to hear that it's accurate from a person who has seen him for real. Thank you very much :)

It looks amazing! Love all the texturing and the colors. You made him look so realistic that he looks like he could get up and walk away at any moment. ^^
