TMNT by TravisTheGeek TMNT by TravisTheGeek
Some of my earliest drawling-related memories are of drawing the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles way back when. Looking back on it, that may have very well been when it all started for me. So returning to 'em after who knows how long was an absolute blast.

I haven't seen the live action ones in a while either. Shame they only made two of them. I thought they were going to make a third but then IT NEVER HAPPENED! *covers ears and begins humming* (Seriously, even as a little kid at the height of Turtle Mania, I still knew the third one sucked. lol) I loved the CG one from a few years back, though.

Yeah I have all three but the third one still wasn't as good as the first two since Shredder wasn't in it anymore. That and the plot was.... different. Time traveling ninjas.... Yeah not that good. My personal favorite is the second one though.

I love how Leo let those katana hung beside his waist instead of resting on his back ^^

Oh, and my handwriting is real crappy and the blur I put on it doesn't help, but it's actually a "Momma Joan's".

Pretty slick job all around!

Did you draw the background separately and then paste the turtles on top of it?
Reply
:icontravisthegeek:
TravisTheGeek Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
Thanks! And to answer your question: Kind of sort of. Er, let me explain.... I usually start off drawing things as little 2"x3" thumbnails, which I then blow up to fit on regular computer paper to add in details, and then blow up again to 11"x17" bristol board for the final lines. For this, I did the thumbnails for the turtles on paper and the thumbnails for the city on the computer, which I then pasted them on. From the second step onward, though, it's all done together on paper. (Except for some of the signs/ads which I did add after the fact.)

This looks GREAT Travis! There is some excellent stuff going on here, but I'm particularly impressed with the background work. You are getting seriously advanced, man. Fantastic job.

Thank you so much! And, yeah, the background was a lot of fun to do. Lots of playing around and experimenting, lots of "What would Adam and Comfort do?" moments. lol
