TMNT - From Sketch to Scratch


Brave New Worlds? TMNT? - COWABUNGA!!! When I heard of this show I jumped at the opportunity to produce a new, fresh piece for the show.

I focused my turtles on the original Kevin Eastman/Peter Laird's version. I began with my usual technique by drawing the sketch with my left hand (seen on left sketch). Once I had everything in place after countless erasing - I traced and cleaned up the lines with my right hand onto scracthboard beginning the scratch process. (seen on the right)

Next I will be preparing for colors - I know the originals did not have color but the covers did :)
