they only reference to Dali is the name of the turtle...its like saying - what does michaelangelo have to do with ninjas? Once I named him Salvador I wanted to give him a background that fit in with the sound of his name.
That background is great! I really have a thing for backgrounds when they make the picture work so well, like this one! Kinda reminds me of a manhole lid hehe, dunno whether that was intentional...
Still, i wish i could colour like that, youve made brilliant progress!
I love it man, definately one of my favs for the contest, its pretty original, nice design and great back story! Definately a front runner for me, there's alot of other good entries but they either lack an original design or are do have one but lack a decent back story! Yours has both so your definately ahead! Also I think you did an great job colouring it, it works well for your style and it shows the colour scheme, what more do you want?! Love the simple bg (enviroment bg) as well, once again it works well with the design!
By the way, you ever read Adam Pollina's Big Daddy Danger, this piece totally reminds me of that for some reason, it looks like one of the guys he would have fought! Its cool, I love it!
Goddamn this is awesome! Not the flashiest colors...? These colors are fucking amazing! I must learn how to color in Photoshop or some other digital program...Anyway, this is going straight into my favorites!
