Heroes in a Snail Shell: SNAIL POWER! by Samantha J. Lewis

Heroes in a Snail Shell: SNAIL POWER!
by Samantha J. Lewis

Prompt: Hero in a snail shell
prompted by: Anke Wehner, during Sketch Fest #80 (October, 2016)

So, the moment I read this title, my brain promptly went to TMNT and humming "Heroes in a Half Shell - Turtle Power!" to myself. Aaaaand, teenage mutant ninja snails were born. Or at least this one. He has a little "J" on his belt for Johannes Vermeer. A Dutch painter I admired a lot in high school and still love. Johannes here holds a staff for his weapon to throw back to my favorite turtle - Donatello. I always had a thing for the nerdy ones. :) 6x8 pencil sketch on Strathmore sketch paper
