Donatello+April 'Ninja Sea Turtle Love by JasmineAlexandra Donatello+April 'Ninja Sea Turtle Love by JasmineAlexandra
Donatello is a ninja sea turtle & April is a mermaid… together, they swim in the sea together & sometimes do more than just swim… they share a bond... & like the coral in the reefs, the kelp on the coves, like the storms in the sea, & the life in the ocean it can grow...

Donatello swims up to the mermaid, April.  He knows in ocean tradition, that one must give a trinket to symbolize what one means to each other.  Therefore, he collects trinkets that symbolize how much she means to him.  Guess she approves…

Nice, very nice. I've always had a thing for mermaids in artwork. And turning Donnie into a sea turtle. Brilliant! I love the bubbles and the shine added to them; Ive always had trouble with that artwork, considering all I work with is a photo camera and color pencils. the added shells charm Donnie and April has adds a sort of cute charm to it. I don't know what else to say about this picture. I'm almost at a complete loss of words here. But all I can say is this: Keep up the excellent work you are doing here.

Very good! Love it like all the rest of your work. I love how you made it so April was a mermaid, and Donnie a sea turtle. I love the charms they gave each other they are so cute, and pretty. I also love how you made them kissing so romantic! I love the background too, it look so much like the sea. I love the bubbles too but, maybe a couple less would do. Maybe you could have added a few more plants like kelp, or coral or something at the bottom near or on the sand. Also maybe add a few fish or a whale or a octopus or something too. Hope you don't take this too harshly because I loved everything else just though maybe a little more life would do. All in all I would say it's a well done drawing, that must have took a lot time, and that's a thousand times better than what I can do.

It's so beautiful. Whatever you did with the light reflection is amazing! I love the hole idea of the picture, making April a mermaid, Donnie a sea turtle and giving him a harpoon! That was a good idea and actually I like the emptiness of the picture it makes it so you can just focus on the cute couple which is what you should be looking at anyway. Keep up the good work!

Cute but April needs a seashell bra 
Reply
:iconjasminealexandra:
JasmineAlexandra Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014  Student General Artist
you know... I remember trying a seashell bra when i was costume shopping... it was scratchy, it poked my chest & uncomfortable... it did not stay in place nor served any purpose but be really inconvenient. SO... I thought... why in the world would anyone wear this??? I mean I see films of indigenous people from the forests & tribes & the tribeswomen are pretty topless in most foraging cultures... except for those that live in circumpolar regions, but they wear head to toe furs for obvious reasons, after all, it is like...below zero for most of the year...
SO I thought... why would mermaids wear these? It won't last long in the water nor will it last long past one stroke? So... why the shells? Is there a mermaid social protocal? Can you imagine the inconvienance that presents itself? So... topless... like National Geographic. Besides, did you know you can be topless in New York? It is not against the law to be topless. I say this... Mermaids are topless & that is that...
