my favourite character was slash, as a kid i always played as him, but in my mind he became good, i would have loved that in the series, the turtles fighting alongside the fifth brother

you should check him out in the IDW TMNT comics, he's kind of a good guy!

Man, I love how he looks more like Slash should, and not to much like Tokka. Would love to see you do him again, but with his Wrist blades, or some kinda bladed bracers. Would love to see you do your interpretation of Kirby! Bet that would be killer.

thanks! i modeled my Slash on the concept art that Kevin did for the IDW Slash, even though Andy Kuhn ended up doing a much more Tokka-like/snapper-like Slash, which i dig a lot. i'd love to draw Slash again but we'll see!

ha! i've never considered drawing Kirby, i don't know why i never thought of that, but that would be fun. hmmmm...

This cover is insane, and I love the fan project too. I cannot get over your art style, especially mixed with the turtles. I've been enjoying the new show's art direction, and your work blends seamlessly with it. I really hope they get Slash in the show, and I really really REALLY hope he looks like that. I hope these guys throw enough money your way to get you on these books more often. Holy cow.

Major kudos, this is spectacular.

That's awesome. I just did my first fan character for anything ever, being a TMNT nut, decided to go with a Ninja leatherback. Hopped on here to see if anyone's already made something smiliar and I was a little surprised seeing so little for Ninja Turtles. Then I peeked into yours and...yeah. Wow. Best by far.

...Long-range turtle is genius, by the way. Never even crossed my mind. I can't wait to see more.

i had some large-size 11x17 inch prints of this but they're all gone! i might have more in the future. they won't be available through deviantart though, because DA doesn't let you make prints of copyrighted characters.

glad you like the piece, thanks!

Epic! Slash is gonna be in IDW! XD BTW, any chance of Raph possibly doing some issues as Nightwatcher too? XD I always thought that would've been a interesting fight-Raph disguised as Nightwatcher (and hopefully not holding back as much since the other TMNT shouldn't be able to recognize him) Vs. Slash. BTW, is Slash related to the other four in this version of the Turtleverse? :?

mooncalfe Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Professional
i'm the wrong person to ask about Raph/Nightwatcher, i don't actually work on the series beyond the Leo issue i drew and covers like this! you should go post on the IDW forum and ask the editor. :)

Slash isn't apparently related to the Turtles in IDW, no, but you gotta read the series!! ;) his story is still happening.

Well, on average, how long does it take you to do 1 drawing?

:iconmooncalfe:
mooncalfe Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Professional
hmmmm, i'd say about 6-8 hours total, but that usually gets spread out over a few days because of procrastinating or working on other things, or fussing with something. this TMNT/Slash pic took longer than that because the layout was difficult, figuring out where the figures go and how they fit together.
