TMNT Week at
comes to a close!
this one is the most important drawing this week and i saved it for last! this is the first sketch for a TMNT fan comic i'm cooking up called Secrets of the Ooze
, which is a retelling of the second Turtles movie (a.k.a. the one with Vanilla Ice
) with my own spin on the story and characters.
the biggest thing i'm adding is a 5th Turtle, Artemisia (Artie for short), named after Artemisia Gentileschi. she's the shy worrywart Turtle and her weapon is the bow-and-arrow (i always felt like each Turtle's weapon was part of their personality, so Artie's had to be the same: she's too nervous to get in close so she strikes from afar, but when she does she is exact and intuitive).
i'm not exactly sure when this is going to happen, i'm hoping next year, i'm hoping i can squeeze a page a week into my schedule and run it as weekly webcomic. it'll have a loose sketchy style like this drawing, it'll probably look just like this, since i won't have time for anything more rendered or refined. but i think that'll be cool, it'll be totally for fun, raw and rough.
