@Akashic Soldier I like the idea of turtle people, but I think it could use a bit more work. The front-facing version has a very flat top of the head, so rounding it more would make it look less square. Your arms are also uneven and unless there's a story reason for that I think fixing them so they match would be a lot more appealing. The side-view's face seems squished to me, and extending it out a bit could help give a more turtle beak appearance. It depends on the turtle you're basing the appearance on, but when I think turtles I think round shells, so a rounder shell may look good. There are a few spots where I'm confused about the shading, mostly the highlights on the back of the head and on the beak's tip. I don't think light would be hitting there, so replacing those light colors with darker ones would work better. Take some more time to fix up those things, and I think this'll be a cool creature. I made a few edits to show what I mean. Also tried out my own version of the scaled one, since it seemed interesting.
