When I was deciding what Flashtista should look like, I couldn’t pick just one kind of turtle to model her after. There are just so many variations! So I picked what I liked best out of a few different types of turtles, and melded them together, to create the “warrior turtle” look.

I really like the markings that pond turtles have on their heads, so I added a few stripes to the top of her head and her cheek.

And those alien-like eyes were inspired by the sea turtle.
