This is an instant fav, I absolutely love the ninja turtles with all my heart. I've watched the show when i was little and collected the comic books. I've got stacks and stacks of em in the attic.

Mirage did a beautiful job of showing a more graphic version of the turtles tale, unilike the show but still...

Anyway, your art is awesome, and this is totally awesome, your like 50 times cooler to me right now<3

thanks!!

turtle-nerd voice: the old comics came before the cartoon/show, so i think your wording should be reversed: the cartoon did a good job of showing a less graphic version of the Turtles. ;)

Ah point taken, speaking of which ever hear of TMNT Gaiden, awesome fancomic by a deviant artist about the turtles. Pop it in google and it should be the first one, i enjoyed it alot.

Anyway, TURTLES RULE! And keep up that gorgeous art!<3

thanks! i should be drawing an issue or two in the future, so stay tuned! i was brought on late onto the Bad Moon project, Lawson had already drawn most or all of it, i think, but they even kicked Mike Dooney off covers so i could do them! haha. wow. so i don't know if i would've gotten to draw the whole thing if i was around from the start, who knows, but i love Lawson so it's all good. i'll get a crack at some interiors soon enough! :tmnt1:

yeah, tales of leo: blind sight was awesome! i have a couple original pages from that from jim lawson himself!
have you seen the first cover to the raph mini-series i did? here it is: [link]

i thought maybe you'd have commented if you'd seen my other Turtles stuff, so i'll link you to some of it. i feel like you're the ultimate turtles fan, and if my Turtles can't please you, then i'm a failure! ;)

awesome, glad you like 'em! thanks!

you definitely have your own style going, your Turtles look great! and you're still young, too, so by the time you're around my age you'll be working for Mirage full-time! ;)

the other two girls in this picture are Sloane (remember her? she was in Tales of the TMNT #7, the one with the werewolves, which Bad Moon Rising is a sequel to), and the short girl is a witch named Lulu. she's new, i don't know much about her, the Mirage folks just gave me enough info to draw her.
