Oasis

This was my entry for the illustration category.
I wanted to depict that despide the harsh life on the deserts of Loulan, a blessing would pass by and quench those who are weary, there’s a lot of Chinese history depicting turtles having a forest of some sort on their backs and I wanted to depict that since, loulan is a fantasy place situated in China, I didn’t mean for the skin to look like it was made of sand or rocks but I guess that’s a happy accident.
