Woho! Love these little guys.

Tried to make a (bad) "blue stall" deck, which didn't work.. but sometimes these guys smashed face, and that just drove my opponents crazy. XD

Beautiful piece, but there's one major anatomical detail that really sticks out to me. This is based on a tortoise, right? So where's it's plastron (ie the lower half of its shell)? Most tortoises have a thick plastron, often with a long protruding flange at the front (frequently used by males to fight over females).

yeah, probably should have indicated some kind of protrusion there. good call. though it is a 6 foot tall fantasy tortoise, so I guess anything is possible ;)

Its doing its job by keeping me happy and inspired.
Sadly it needs a new home as the matting and frame its currently in just happened to barely fit. ...hmmm. Kinda like a hermit crab.
I originally had a painting on illustration board in the frame but musing is much better to look at.

Great art for a really flavorful card. I actually really hoped you'd share this in full size because I was excited by it on the card.

I was on the fence about it as an actual card when I first say it because I've been playing long enough to remember morphling and feel that it was a little underpowered under the current rules. BUT, having lost games to it, I have full respect for the card.

The art earned respect right out of the box.
