Indeterminately-Aged Genetically-Atypical Samurai Tortoise

"Indeterminately-Aged Genetically-Atypical Samurai Tortoise"

pencil and digital, 2009

I remember tracing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle over and over out of a Nintendo Power magazine in the 5th grade. I think it was a big part of learning to draw.

Later in Mrs. Bill's Art II class in high school, I chose a particular panel from the original Eastman and Laird TMNT comics as the basis for my clay project, a shot of Raphael perched on the corner of some NYC roof ledge, all cool and stuff.

Anyhow, here's the new one... : J

(and for purists, tho I based dude here on a Box Turtle - Brits and Aussies calls those tortoises)

Very cool drawing, the ninja turtles should look like this one, Ill bet the movie would had more impact as buy viagra does the impact on those who need it.
