TMNT by AdamWithers TMNT by AdamWithers
Here's a little something I've been working on the last couple weeks. It is the first Ninja Turtles piece I've ever done in full color, that I remember. I probably did a few when I was a kid - I was a HUGE Turtles nut as a kid.

Oh... and I'm a Donatello. Totally. My wife :iconcomfortlove: is a Leonardo. We fit so well together!

I wanted to take some of the color theory stuff I'd played around with way back on my Catwoman/Black Cat piece [link] and push it farther using the things I'd learned since. I also experimented with some hand-applied skin texturing and splotching, which I think turned out alright. I've got a close-up here: [link]

This was a lot of fun, particularly bringing out the personalities. Tried to keep them feeling youthful and teenagey, which tends to get lost in a lot of treatments. This piece draws a lot from the TMNT animated film by Imagi, which I absolutely adored. IF you haven't seen it and you're a turtles fan, shame on you! [link]

Cowabunga, dude!  That's some radical work there, man!  I have to ask though.  Is this done in the style of the original cartoon series from the 80s and 90s, the 2007 movie, or the 2012 Nickolodian series?

It's done in my style. B-) A mish-mash of what I liked of different eras, interpreted through the way I like to draw in general.
