Using a lot of Crayola lately, these were all done at work, some of them while I was on break…
This next one has fancy brush pen lines by Mel Tingdahl, with crayons by me. Rockin’ Marceline collabo of doom!
Also just finished a bunch of freelance projects that will be getting printed soon. Look at them!
There’s a Threadless contest going on for best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle design. I used the frustrating underwater section of the first NES TMNT game as seen below, for inspiration.
Took like 5 hours, but only uses 4 colors because the green background is the color of the shirt!
Whoa, rough sketch was rough!
Design will cover entire front of shirt for maximum tackiness.
I recently noticed that I have an abundance of markers, and that it was long overdue that I sort through my bins, and trash the ones that have dried up. While checking them to see if each one still worked, I figured I might as well draw a little bit and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Now I know the markers I have function, plus they’re all nice and organized into brush pens, sharpies, prismacolors and miscellaneous!

8.5 by 11 scrap paper from work
Piece of TMNT fan-art for my secret santa over at the coolest art forums on the web-net!
Initial sketch had too short of a torso, and an overly large dome. I think I fixed it, at least a little bit, in the final version. Took me an extra month to color it. Logo on the skateboard from the Hu-Shang resteraunt, in the original comic books.
Peek at the rest of the art gifts ovah here!
Scanned into the ol’ Photoshop and completely redid/cleaned up the text. Lately I’ve been getting into the habit of quickly writing things without lifting the pen off the paper, so I ran with that. Also fixed the cheekbone, nose and ear. Never really looked at an ear for reference before, which is kind of weird considering (A.) how old I am, and (B.) how may ears I have probably drawn in that period of time.
Then next, popped over to Illustrator to trace my lines with the pen tool, and flip the fill around. Now you’ve got your original lines, but so much sharper than before, though I guess it’s kind of hard to tell without looking at a larger version of the file.
