TMNT: Old School!

Man, I loved me some Turtles back in the day.

It's crazy how tastes change, i used to hate any version of them that was not the cartoon; if they had nostrils, if they had pointed mouths, if their bandana colours weren't different colours, etc. Now, it's the original comic versions that would appeal to me the most.

Anyway, I wanted to spend a bit of time on this week's piece. Haven't been happy with any of my Micks pieces of late.

That's great Dec. love their pointy noses. It was so weird as a kid finding out the Turtles had this strange origin as an indie comic with no pizza or April O' Neill.

turns out the turtles may have been homosexual

Yeah. We found out in yesterday's post.

Thanks Thomps. There was no pizza even!?! I don't know WHAT to believe anymore....

This is excellent, love the scaly skin effect you've achieved, Raph's slouchy pose, and Mikey's turkey-neck.
Favourite of yours in a while.
