The TURTLES were by far one of my favorite childhood super heroes. I loved the cartoon first which lead me to learn about the comic book. After reading the comics I had such a new found love for the Turtles. Don't get me wrong I loved the light heartedness of the cartoon. Even the goofy humor. But it was the comic that delved more into the brotherhood and traditions of classic martial arts that made me appreciate the brand more....Plus Alien TRICERATOPS!
For this Illustration I wanted to combine the NEW with the OLD. I wanted to take that iconic TMNT Issue #1 cover art & put this new iteration of the Turtles in it, but with a look that is more reminiscent of the later comic book designs.
|Here is the Cover Art for the first Turtle Adventure in Print (IDW HC version)|
|Here is a scan of my initial PENCIL LINE WORK no SHADOWS...yet.|
MIKEY was way too big in the drawings. Something that I would address later. Next up: BLACK SHADOWS!
|LEO- NO NOSTRILS & NO LIPS|
|RAPH AKA IRON TURTLE|
|DONNY- THE NERD|
|MIKEY- Always ready for some action and in correct Scale!|
