This is kind of special to me, this is what started it all. I was super into tmnt as a kid. Seriously it was like my life was complete when I finally got the full set of the guys and my turtle van. I would spend countless hours of my childhood drawing ninja turtles, asking my parents to rent me ninja turtle vhs' from sam goody. I had the toy nun chucks Michelangelo being my favorite of them all, so that's the subject. You can do one, two, three, or all four. I personally am going to try and do all four and go all out on it.

I'm going to let this run on until the 23rd, if I get objections to that date because it's too long then we can make it the 16th. Majority rules!

I don't believe the showdown out of all 80 have we ever ventured into turtle town, I'll go check. But even if it was done before I think it will be okay to revisit if some didn't get to do it before. I found some kick ass examples for you to go by. No matter your "skill level" just enter something, it's not about who wins, it's about sharing your talent with the other people here guys.

Seeing as the new TMNT series and the collection books are on the way (WAAAANT!!) this is pretty timely. Haven't drawn Turtles in a while. =)

This is how I was introduced to TMNT.  They looked goofy and they were hardcore!  I mean Shredder didn't make it through the first E&L TPB. I'll be submitting a higher res version with color for my final version.

you're totally right, I jumped on right after they were drawn all goofy and had a serious look to them, the books were also black and white.

@maxicere: Only chance is to draw shredder! One turtle cannot defeat him on his own!

@maxicere: Your first pencil sketch is what made me want to throw in my two cents.  Really great stuff.  Good musculature and texture.

@ordinary@payno@maxicere:  man all your guys entries are awesome. totally diff styles for each, and yet your guys coloring abilities are all superb. 
 
@Om1kron: nice, can't wait for the finishing touches. really like the different perspectives and angular line work. (btw i have no idea if im using the right art jargon, but the piece is dope)
#30 Posted by ordinary (59 posts) - - Show Bio
@gunjin: thanks for that.
 
@Om1kron: Excellent example of the Turtles different personalities.
#31 Edited by gunjin (732 posts) - - Show Bio

i never read the comics or seen the new shows. was only introduced via the original cartoon and videogames (nes and snes).  
 
this looks nothing like any of them, but enjoy.

#34 Posted by Om1kron (1219 posts) - - Show Bio

haha Love the kill bill turtle!

#35 Posted by innocence (186 posts) - - Show Bio

This is the laziest submission i've ever entered. I didn't feel like drawing a new pic cause i remembered i drew this guy out way earlier this year, during a lecture i was in. His arms aren't done very well. And when i began to color him in i didn't feel like erasing the paper lines. but in anyway, i hope some of you like it.

So its been a while since I picked up a pencil to draw anything. Hell, its been a while since I came and looked at everything on the vine properly.  
The turtle's were one of my favourite shows to watch as a kid. I remember waking up early in the morning and watching it religiously. Lol 
 
Here's my rendition of Mikey, everyone's favourite pizza eating, skateboarding, wise cracking, nun-chuck twirling, hero in a half shell. Inspired by Teenage mutant ninja turtles Book II.. (I have the third reprint from 1989)
I used pencils for the drawing and spent a good couple of hours trying to figure out and colour with photoshop!! :D

Amazing work everyone... I'm done a quarter of this big project and here it is:  
 

 Please click me to get a nicer image :D
Just a taste of whats to come...  
 
Question: 
How come when ever I color something purple it turns out blue when I upload it on here... anyone know???
#43 Posted by deadpool1109 (452 posts) - - Show Bio
@Om1kron: Thanks Om... 
Still teasing us all I see... 
I see some insane stuff coming from you... just one thing.. is it me or does Leos left leg look a little off?? like the thigh looks way to long
#44 Posted by Om1kron (1219 posts) - - Show Bio

don't think of it as you can only see his left leg, that's all the way up to his hip.

#45 Posted by deadpool1109 (452 posts) - - Show Bio
@Om1kron: Agreed, but the place where the knee protector is located looks really really low... just saying... unless the leg is bent and the lower leg is towards the background it just looks a little off. But otherwise it looks excellent.. damn you and your cintiq, i just know its going to look amazing once you've inked and coloured it. :D
#46 Edited by deadpool1109 (452 posts) - - Show Bio
@payno: Very nicely done.  
@gunjin: Wow!! That is beautiful!! I love the twist you've put on them. 
@innocence: I like the perspective. :D
#47 Posted by Mrfuzzynutz (1267 posts) - - Show Bio

I see what you're saying, I have since addressed it, hopefully it looks a bit more natural. I didn't want to focus on that too much and not work on the rest of the image lol.

Turtles Forever was on this past weekend, I think I have watched it 6 times already 
Might enjoy that more then the awesome TMNT movie if that is possible... 
 
So I am thinking the 23rd is a great deadline, as it will give me the time to finish this 
as I have done nothing but work on this project since it began lol 
 
So the plan is to draw and ink each Turtle separately to then link it up in PS before applying color 
I have finished penciling all 4, and Raph seemed to be the strongest of the four, so I went ahead and inked him first 
 
I hope to finished by next Monday :) 
but in the meantime, enjoy the preview !!
