Yesterday I talked about color theory and mentioned that if you use colors that are too similar for an entire page that it may turn out boring. That doesn't have to be the case, though.
When I saw this guy, I immediately knew I wanted him to be all green. I used to not particularly care for green, but in the last couple years I've become really fond of it, so was excited to see what I could do with this turtle.
Even though he's all greens, I tried to add some pretty good contrasts so he didn't just look like a green blob. I think I did ok in this regard and he's not boring, but I might be a little biased
