Using a lot of Crayola lately, these were all done at work, some of them while I was on break…

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!

Piece of TMNT fan-art for my secret santa over at the coolest art forums on the web-net!

FINAL COLORS!

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!

Have had this one sitting on the hard-drive for awhile now. I’ve been working on integrating more text into my graphics. Step one, scribble some things on a scrap piece of paper.

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.

Then lastly, jumped back over to Photoshop one more time and applied a little gradient for shiz and giggles. Calling it done! Click this last one to open a larger version if you so please.

Might as well throw in a few miscellanious things from work while I’m at it. Sharpie, pencils and crayons on the backs of meal tickets. Shazaam!
