Turtles from my TMNT fan comic, Secrets of the Ooze!

the 5th Turtle is named Artemisia, and the Turtles have face paint instead of masks. :)

TMNT is owned by Viacom. my fan comic is an unofficial goof-off project not affiliated with Viacom, Nickelodeon, or IDW.

Perhaps it's my favorite concept of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Because the image of characters fully reflect the essence of the title. Excellent work! :squee: 

Reminiscent of classic comics by their creators: Laird and Eastman.
By the way, looking at this picture, I hear a melody in my head from the first film. This soundtrack: Shredder's Suite  Ninja Battle!

I dont think Ill ever understand your ability to color pick.

i don't really understand it either. :XD: when in doubt, make everything blue.

That is strange advice to me, but I will def. take your word for it.

Blue tends to be my least favorite color though, but it is symbolically the most agreeable, "peaceful" color. 

There might also be some science to it but whatever.

I would never have believed anything could get me interested in TMNT again. But now I wish Viacom, Nick and whatnot were paying you to do this officially. Please do this thing, even if only for free.

I would SO LOVE to publish your fan-comic in my magazine :D
Yeah, I know...

anyways, this composition is Killer, bro!

thanks, that would be awesome! it would be an even bigger copyright infringement, though, so i'm afraid i have to respectfully decline. thank you so much for the interest, though!!

i got the Champion of Children book in the mail, it looks awesome but you guys seriously need to print from higher resolution images! ;)

Yeah, I found out after the fact that Corance (a writer, not an artist) scanned pages from the original books and resized them for the tpb himself. He didn't know what he was doing, and didn't ask for help. His room mate is an artist on the books, and I assumed they were working together, but they weren't.
sigh...

Also, I knew you would not be able to do the magazine, I was just saying...

i wasn't sure if your fan-comic/magazine suggestion was serious or in jest and when i'm unsure, i always play it serious! ;) it's not a bad idea, though, it would actually be really awesome and a huge honor, but you know, copyrights... i'm already infringing so i gotta play it as safe as i can! :XD:

yeah, man, the image quality in the book is a huge bummer. everything else looks amazing, though. :)

samax Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Professional Artist
Yeah. I try to look on the bright side. Corance took a lot of initiative to do the Kickstarter and reprint those comics. I am always pushy and getting in everyone else's business, so I tried to lay off and let him be in charge. Next time, I will be my old nosy pushy self! lol!

But yo, any time you want to contribute a short comic for GhettoManga or do some illustrations or something, I would be SUPER honored to have you involved! I'm always kinda shy about asking friends to contribute that have big publishers waiting on them.

I have written about your books more than once in the magazine, as you might imagine. So my readers probably all like your work anyway! LOL

heh, i know what you mean about being pushy and getting your fingers in everyone's business, i'm the same way. i usually feel bad but i can't help it!

i'd love to do a short for you someday, definitely. but yeah i'm pretty swamped right now, not just with big(ish) publishers waiting on me but my own personal stuff too, i've had to set it aside for too long because of Glory and i'm really trying to double my efforts now and focus on it. i hope i can get back to the place i was at years ago pre-Glory when i felt like i had more time for smaller side projects. i really do appreciate all your support and attention, i hope i can pay you back someday. :)

You don't owe me anything. If your work sucked, I wouldn't be so supportive. :D
I hope things continue upward for you, and that you will get to make your living working on the projects you want to do most. If I can do anything to enable or encourage that, it's my pleasure.

Your designs for the turtles are REALLY, REALLY GOOD :D

Your cityscape is an extremely good design, and I love tohse things they're wearing; Leonardo's glove things, the scarf-cape-poncho thingies (I have no idea what to call them, but I like them) and the gadgets on their belts; they don't just feel like actual turtles (instead of humanish turtlethings) they look and act like proper ninjas!

Donatello's goggles are, AHHHHH I LOVE THEM :D

Extremely fine work, Mooncalfe! YOUR THE BEST :D

Is this a sample of what the comic might look like? As far as colors and blacks?
Reply
:iconmooncalfe:
mooncalfe Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
i haven't quite decided yet. the comic will probably have flat colors/no shading most of the time and probably be a bit looser, and maybe have shading/shadows appearing for certain panels for mood or effect. i want to keep it as simple and fast as i can since i'll only be working on it in my free time. we'll see!
