I love this scene, it doesn't make me sad,it does the opposite effect; the atmosphere seems so relaxed and the boys will find peace here. Lovely.

Was there a certain computer program you used to make this, or did you physically draw it on paper and pencil? It's beautiful. :,)

thanks! this piece was done with ink, a brush, watercolor shading, and markers on paper, plus some Photoshop colors like the green of their skin and the leaves and some of the trees. it's a combination. :)

Wow.  This is.... kind of amazing.

These turtles are super-stylized, but they're cute without being... I'unno, too cute to take seriously?  Hard to elucidate what I mean here.  The background and everything looks amazing too, and I love all the little details all over the place- stains and wear on the wraps, twigs and unevenness on the trees, the smoke coming out the chimney of the farmhouse, laces on Raph's belt, Don's belt pouches..... This whole thing is a celebration for the eyes, but... not a festival.  Much.... quieter and milder than that.  Family celebration for the eyes maybe?

This is gorgeous! I've only just started reading the IDW stuff in the last couple of weeks. Just need to find a copy of the City Fall book 2 trade paperback, then I can get up to the issues you did and based in this and the couple of others of yours I have seen so far, I am really looking forward to reading/seeing your work :-)

Well, I just got into the city to the comic shops today. Sadly, went to 4 different shops (well, one was closed for stocktake so couldn't check that one) and no one has the City Fall book 2 trade paperback so I still can't read past it yet (I did put it on order however :-)) but I did manage to get the Micros vol 1 book and just finished reading it now. Read some of it on the bus home and the rest after getting home. Enjoyed all 4 but (and I am not just saying this) but I must say I enjoyed the Leo story the most.

Really liked the little details, like how Leo's wrappings became loose and damaged the further it got into the fight, for example, really great touch! The emotion and the determination inherent was a thing of beauty and not always something that really comes through in all comics. Much as it may be a horrible thing to say, the panel I liked the most was after Leo was thrown away and his own swords came down at him, just missing his head, that cringe! Just wow! The little flashbacks were great too!

I've also put the second Micro-series trade paperback on order at the same time as City Fall book 2. just gotta be patient and wait now I guess :-p

No, I haven't yet. I bought the main series trade paperbacks, not realising that stuff kept referring to the micros. By the time I realised it was too late, I was already on the plane heading home. However, I plan on heading into the comic store in my city to see if I can get in the next day or two (along with City Fall 2 so that I can read vols 6, 8 and 9 that I have sitting there mocking me). If they don't have it currently in stock, then simple, I just order them and have to wait. I am hooked though, that's for certain.

i've seen this countless times before, and it's an insert in the TMNT Visual History book, which means that I now know who drew it.

Now I can tell you how much I love it. this is one of my favourite pieces of art, period.

i really love the way you draw the turtles.
