WHAAA?! This just released some chemicals in my brain that made it light up! It's the mask, all about the mask. I love that you brought something of your own to the design and its super unexpected!!!
Man, I got to make a bigger effort to get away from being "on model" and put a firmer personal stamp on my stuff like you!
Uuugh those black eyes are so creepy! Makes it hard to read him. Really unsettling.
i'm glad you think so! they totally are, i agree, they're even harder to read and put more "distance" between him and the viewer than the white eyes do.
Awesome work here dude
I just realized the similarity between the relationship between Splinter and his sons and between Thomas Light and his.
Not the best parenting.
On a related note:I would be afraid to run an errand for Thomas Light lest it all end with him screaming Wily's name to the heavens over my broken, beaten body.
Also, I always love what you do with shadows and contrast as a whole. And you draw the turtles so cute!
Being this is an art website, I should have led with the critique.
Crazy sick are goung todraw the whole body next
Amazing as always I really hope the guys are able to save Leo. Karai is not very happy that Shredder is taking more of a liking to Leo then herself.
thank you!! i can't say anything about what happens, you gotta wait to find out!
This is really cool, reminds me of the art direction for the movie "Drive", so much is being said with his eyes, the air is electrified.
Nice, really cool mask design.
I'd really love to know the inspiration behind this mask you've got him wearing! It's really neat. Reminds me of Okami.
thanks! it's inspired by Kitsune's mask, i thought it would be cool if he had a white mask like hers with the red markings on it. it would be symbolic!!
I thought it was possibly a ward to help Kitsune keep her hold on Leo.
Ah, I thought that may have been it. Which gives some credence to my personal theories about those two! >:3c
haha, uh oh, what are your theories?? keep in mind these are just my own doodles, not affiliated with what IDW is doing!
Well, I think Kitsune is somehow tied into Tang Shen. The flashback thing Leo had when he looked at her seemed indicative of something more, plus there's the fact that she claims her ritual will only maintain its effect so long as he doesn't get blood on his blade. If she is actually Tang Shen reincarnated in Kitsune's body, or something to that effect, it would make total sense that she doesn't want to send her son out to kill innocent people, or anyone else for that matter. With that theory in mind, these pictures could actually represent Leonardo being protected by his mother. What appears to be darkness (black mask) is actually light (white mask of his 'mother').
And this would be an awesome cellphone bg XD
