A quick turtle, usable I think in the real world.

This is complicated but seeing your Turtle reminded me that I recently saw a sculpture that reminded me of a technique that Pascal has shared on his workshop which then reminded me of a turtle shell . . . . anyway, I made this yesterday just before I saw your turtle and thought I would share it too.

I also played around with other shapes for the shell

The turtle shell looks a little like the shield that you and Danny made from the ginger bread men style.

Another idea struck today on the body of the turtle, so I thought I'd try it.

I started to twist a dog face using two balloons.
It was meant to be weaved a little but did not turn out right.

It was laying on the floor for a couple of days and then
I twisted loops into pinch twists and it ended up looking like
picture below. Well the face looked a little turtle like and different
to the way I usually make it so I had a play.

The neck might be a littler too long but the face looked OK to me.
