April 26 work in progress

This is a green sea turtle on a 30mm round piece of pre-ban elephant ivory. It's not domed. It's 4mm thick. It's in color, and it's taking forever! The background is now done, I'm working on the turtle itself, which is going to have at least 4 colors (aaaack!)

Background done (that's a lot of dots!):

How it actually looks tonight, much of the first layer of turtle color (blue) is scrimmed, but not yet inked. This is shot through the scope, which is the only way you can see what's going on there unless I ink it:
