African Folktale, first 'completed' compositions.

New term and new work. This is an african folk tale about how the tortoise's shell became bumpy and mosaiced like it is. Short story, the birds make him wings, he goes to their party in the sky, eats all their food. they get mad, he falls from the clouds and lands on his shell.
I have attempted to incorperate african pattern into the artwork, so you will see it in the colour if you look a bit closer :D These would all be double page spreads from a picture book.
