Default Newbie in search of a turtle

Hi All! I'm a super green newbie on my first project (other than the spoil board): a cribbage board for my niece. I'm figuring out most of the setup in Aspire, but am in search of a Hawaiian-looking sea turtle to add. Can anyone advise me where to look for a template? I'm not the best artist. Thanks in advance.

And any advice on the design so far is greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum, Wendy!

Are you looking for clipart to add an image to the file you've shown or do you want the cribbage board to be in the shape of the sea turtle?

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready.

Thanks for the reply, Dman. I'm good with the cribbage part...just looking for turtles to add to the surface. I was hoping for a vector that looks something like this, but not as intricate.

Hi Wendy -

I went searchin for your turtle, and the sea turtles I found pretty much all had some major detail (in the legs and heads).

I like the shell... so I did a little remake on the one you found. Don't laugh too hard at my first attempt; I wanted to post this tonight before I went to bed.

Welcome to the Router Forums Wendy. I'm not sure what design software you are using but you did say you are looking for a vector so you might check on Etsy for a cheap vector file. There are quite a few turtle files available.

Welcome to the forum. Just type in clip art in your search engine, there are lots of free clip art also.

Okay, I'm getting blind in my old age. She was looking for a vector file and there might be free ones out there but I do know that there are sets of files for low prices that save a lot of time. Like this file

https://www.etsy.com/listing/7519888..._click=1&bes=1

She could also use the original image that she has and fit vectors to it and edit it to work with her design. That would be a good node editing project for a beginner.

Or she could draw her own image in Aspire that would already be in a vector format and use the vectors to create a 3D model to use in the project, it would be a good project to delve into 3D design.

It boils down to time constraints for the job, file availability and cost, time involved finding a usable vector file versus creating her own vectors, and also how far she wants to take the project.
