I had some fun time working on this fellow with a shell. Here goes the story about the turtle:
Tortuga was born with a peculiar power: with his presence alone, he could drain the colors of other animals, leaving only a grey monochrome where their stripes and spots and colorful patterns used to be. Frightened by this, his own kind cast him out and left him to fare on his own.
For years, little Tortuga made alone his way in the world, searching for a kindred spirits, but everywhere he went, he was shunned and met with disdain. In time, the turtle grew up to be bitter and gruff, resolved to his fate.
One day, however, Tortuga met Swallowtail – a color-blind butterfly, who wasn't scared of him and who was eager befriend him, despite his faults. As their friendship grew and Tortuga knew kindness and affection for the first time, he grew more joyful and kind. And then, slowly, color was seeping back into his world. Where once he was draining away other animals' colors, his presence was now enhancing them, making them more radiant and vivid than ever. Each day, more creatures sought to be in Tortuga's company, while he and Swallowtail, his first and truest friend, are travelling the world to bring friendship and joy to other outcasts like themselves.
Hope you like it!
