MAS Turtle POWER by theMASman MAS Turtle POWER by theMASman
This one was long overdue for colors. All my friends that saw the pencils before hand and saw I had colored Raph but never got round to finishing the other 3. So I was always getting asked if I'd ever color each Turtle into one pinup. So I finally pumped this one recently when I shoulda been finishing up other work :work: .... but that'll just be our little secret tho. ;)

I'll probably still go back into this at some point to spruce it up a bit more because I get like that sometimes plus like I said, I should be doing other work. :police: and getting some good ---> :sleep:

So I was beating the clock everytime I went in coloring this thing.

I'd do a TMNT comic in a heart beat!!!! :D They were the first characters I ever drew even when I was in diapers drawing on the walls. So at this point, drawing any TMNT character is like breathing.

Pencils - 6 Hrs (90 mins each Turtle just about)
Colors - 24 Hrs (Off and On thru the course of many weeks of procrastinating with it)

And NO I DID NOT USE A WACOM!!! Haven't for the last 5 years when I color my work. More so because I'm drawn out by the time I finish my pencils I don't wanna feel like I'm drawing again with a wacom pen. So using a mouse is more like finger-painting to me. If I ever succumb to using one it will be for veeeeery fine last minute details like hair strands and small stuff. Not opposed to using one at all and I know I will for certain works, but like I said, I love my mouse more. :D

Anyway I love every last character so its hard to pick a favorite Turtle but I gotta go with Don :tmnt4: on this one. He earned alot of kudos when I was playing the video games with that long ass bo. :D

You did that with a mouse?!  Truly amazing!  I didn't think you could get that amount of precision with a mouse!  I love it!

Ive had the Wacom Cintiq 12WX for a few years now. I want to dig into the new ones since the older models came with a CRAPLOAD of wires (hence making portability a bitch) but given how much the new ones that dont have that problem are going for..... I'll wait :lol:

:lol:  I hear that!  My friend has been looking up reviews for a couple of years now.  She wants to get one so that she has a back-up for when her old tablet laptop finally quits working.  That way she isn't left hanging.  :XD: 

How are you liking your Cintiq?  Other than the portability issues.  ;)  Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions.

I LOVE IT!!!! Very responsive and speeds up my productivity waaaay quicker than a mouse. It took some getting used to the comfort of it since coloring with a mouse stiffened my hand up more, hence I wasnt getting used to how different each stroke would come out since its so pressure sensitive, but after couple weeks with it I was fine. I like the Intous Tablets too but the occasional looking up and down to see how far you will draw off the pad can throw me off a bit. I like seeing whats right in front of me when Im drawing. I'll never go back to coloring with a mouse unless mine was getting repairs on it. Best art investment any illustrator can have.

Thanks for the comments folks. :)

sparklesofdoom and alisa006 - Im glad you noticed the detailing. The freckles and spots on each Turtle was a last minute add on with Don specifically to show off his nerd factor more. So I ended up doing it with most of them but just not as much. I'll go back with more detail in other areas Im sure, just not sure when. :confused:

KriStALKaLEi - Yes Mikey is underrated so I had to draw him with his tongue out looking crazy since hes the goofy one. Plus it makes him look like he can tear some shit up with ease and still crack a joke doing it.

Wow. Very nice. They all look like they could seriously own some ass. >D As I've said before, gorgeous detail. I especially like how you shaded Leo's neck and Raph's hand. Lots of well defined muscles. ^^

hehe I'd have to agree with you on Don. Leo is my real fav, but Don always was the best when playing the games. >D See a baddie on the floor above you, pull out Don and take him out with his bo, even though it's physically impossible to do so. XD

Great job! :w00t:

Haha why thank you. I was seriously tempted to color each Turtle corresponding to their toy colors and bring back the feel of that brown Donatello figurine :tmnt4:

But even then he stood out waaaaaay too much from the rest. I definitely want to do more TMNT stuff tho down the road if my schedule permits it. :work:

Hehe Yeah, I can see that. Looks great though how you have it. ^^

That'd be awesome! I love your TMNT work, along side your other work. I need to draw some other things besides TMNT. I've been on a kick for it since the new movie. I hardly saw any of the 2003 series. Too familiar with the 80s cartoon.
