Turtles can Fly by *darkmello is adorable and touching at the same time. The composition is great and I adore the way the turtles look, you can see the innocence in the kid's eyes, how different he sees the world around him compared to older people, and the fact that he can look up even during hard times because of that. Lovely work. ( Suggested by Gwendolyn12 and Featured by elicoronel16 )

It's very beautiful but I felt both happy and sad, he have his sweet sister protect him away from the cruel war. I believe his sister was tough shield like a turtle that she want to protect her baby brother grownup for his future but she didn't  have time as she know she going die. She felt warmly cry more and hurt how a great pain like a badly fire, she won't show him her true feeling for his good. But too late, aimlessly she fell into the lake like Ophelia while he felt a slowly vibrate less and heard a splash noise, he shocked in awful and said "big sis!". Started she felt cold grow in her body and can't move, she dizzily stared his watery light brown made melt her heart what she knew she promise  she can't leave him in alone. She said "sorry, sweetie...please, hold me..cold" in weak with a sweet smile. Gently he put her head on his legs and rubbed her softness hair, said "sis, You can't die, I think you said promise me. I know this war is so stupid!" In sad. Sadly she laughed to coughing. She said "yeah, it's stupid but i can't, this my time is running out. Favor me, you must to keep follow a lead of the river where there church...ugh..in less far so I hope you will find someone who care you. Please, don't trust anyon...uh..ohh...l-listen me, don't be fear, little bro, I'm always watch you endless I promise."  He sobbed and said "no, no....." She said" shh, look at that turtles have without fear to fight on a dangerous way to reach a river when they was toughness as a shield. Right?"  He said "I think so, I don't know how I can." She said" t-this me as your shield I'm s-till your side, I b-believe you can-n do like turtl..." She had last breath and closed her eyes, he kissed her pale cheek then pushed her float away in river. He stood up and watched at she float moving with turtles together how beautiful.  Understand He said "turtles can fly. It's freedom." The end.

Hi, I just love your illustrations of children. They are so cute and full of emotion!

I am currently trying to find an illustrator for my children's book that has a child going through the developmental stages of life, such as rolling, crawling, walking, etc.

Please contact me if you have the time or inclination for this project and what your costing will be.

Thanks and take care.

Gloria.

I wish more people knew about this movie. It's absolutely brilliant, and probably one of the truest films I've seen in a very long while. Your art conveys the exact emotion I felt while watching this beautiful film.

It's really interesting to point out that you decided to place the blind child [Riga]'s face towards the viewer while the haunted Agrin has her back turned, as though turnig on the world is her final decison - and ultimately was by the end of the film. *applause*
