Rp picture - Leo and Raph
Doodled up a picture from a rp scene. Didn’t put a whole lot of effort on anything really.
The basics were that Raph and Leo’s names were stolen by a mage, leaving them with no memory of who, and what, they are. They are on a D&D style world and must not only figure out what happened, but find the mage who has their names, and survive a world that believes them monsters to kill on sight.
I don’t mean to imply any Mpreg/Tcest with the little one. He’s merely part of the puzzle. Leo woke with the toddler near at hand, and couldn’t leave it to die. Sky, said toddler, was created through magical means. He is not Donatello, no matter the purple.
Their outfits are done purposely with Raph flashier. Leo would be all ‘Must not stand out in shadows’, and Raph is all “Pft, I’m awesome. Bring it on.” ;) They don’t have their signature weapons in the rp, but put them in the drawing because it seemed fitting.
Done in Sai over three days. Didn’t keep track.
Splinter and tots
Haven’t done art for me in ages. Saw a picture on http://radicalratdad.tumblr.com/ that was a screen capture from the new show and this kind of happened.
Played around with color, purposely keeping it simple, using only one brush.
Done in Sai over a couple days. Didn’t keep track.
The last two of that series!
Commissions for a friend. Each took around eight, and were done in Sai and Photoshop.
When Eastman and Laird named the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I don’t think they took into account that one day we would have to type the whole name as a tag just to find them online.
I find this hilarious, and in a mocking manner….
When they created this comic the internet //did not exist//. (Although I think the military had email, but you had to phone to another server, and the net we have now was only a dream) Of course they didn’t think of hashtags. Honestly. Computers cost $3000+ and were only Apple 2s at the time. Pcs came out a shortly there after.
They were probably wondering how to fund their next issue, not about whether some hobby machine (Which is what the computer was then.) would take off. I’m not even sure Photoshop existed back then! I think it was early 90s, but could be wrong.
Four commissions I’ve done over the last month.
The bar took me 69 hours, and was done as separate files, pieced together in photoshop. Did most the work in Sai. The original image was 5k px high.
Trials of Teldear is a book cover the commissioner so nicely let me show this detailed version of the original. Took 34 hours, and again was done mostly in Sai and pieced together in Photoshop. The original was 5400 px high.
Catboy #1 took seven hours in Sai with tweaks in Photoshop. Was almost a relief after the hours and hours of the first two. Used a muscle man pic to help with the muscles, but didn’t use reference for the pose. Sadly his maul is nearly hidden in mane.
Catboy #2 took eight hours in Sai with tweaks in Photoshop. I am not happy with the sword, but could find no references for one in that pose. Again used a muscle man pic (The same one as above.) to help with the muscles, but didn’t use reference for the pose.
A rough doodle.. showing that I’m still here. :) Swamped in work, but managed to get this out between some pieces.
More commissions. :) The armored lady is a full commission, while the other are two badges I colored.
Catgirl #6 - My apologies to any armor historians out there. I totally made things up as I went along. I wanted a blend of realism and fantasy without making it stupid - like having her boobs hanging out, or having vacuum snug armor. Her helmet front is suppose to slide down as well, but it kind of looks mushroom to me. Bah.

When my daughter first showed signs of hating herself, I got out photoshop. We went and found an image of her choosing, of a woman. I spent the next two hours showing her just how easy it was to alter this woman. I changed her hair, whitened her teeth, made her thinner. I erased her blemishes and even made her taller while my daughter sat there aghast. At the end of it she loudly said - ” THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
I told her that damn near every image she saw of people in magazines, on television, etc, was altered like this, and that she should never compare herself to that, because even supermodels don’t look like supermodels.
I wish I could do that for every child. I wish it was a mandatory class in school.
I AM SHOWING THIS TO EVERYONE
I SAW THIS IN CLASS BEFORE. THE TEACHER WAS ALL LIKE ”please, never compare yourself to people you see in magazines. They’re always altered. It’s as easy as that.” I ALMOST STOOD UP AND YELLED ”AMEN, MISS. AMEN.”
I first saw this at Bible Camp several years ago in a seminar on beauty or insecurity or something.
It still stuns me that it hasn’t circulated as much as I thought it should/would.
VFX/Animation Industry to protest the Oscars
Life of Pi (Fox) and Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal) together grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide. Rhythm & Hues Studios, the company that brought Richard Parker to life and created the bulk of the visual effects for these two Oscar nominated films, has just declared bankruptcy. Many of the artists who worked nights and weekends to create those effects are out of work and unpaid for weeks of work (including nights and weekends) on new tent-pole films for the same studios, Fox and Universal. It’s time for change!
(via Cartoon Brew)
The disrespectful behavior exhibited by Samuel L. Jackson during the award’s introduction and the trivializing “Jaws” cut off just as Westenhofer addressed Rhythm and Hues’ bankruptcy deserve more coverage than Jennifer Lawrence hitting the stairs just before her speech. These people are artists, not drones, creating visual masterpieces with hours of patience and perseverance. If you are an artist, of any measure, this should concern you. The company responsible for making you have feelings for a ship-wrecked predator, Rhythm and Hues, has declared chapter 11 bankruptcy. These studios are underpaid and under-appreciated. Spread the news, call out the Academy on its tactless dismissal of the hundreds of visual artists struggling to stay afloat.
I will NEVER stop reblogging this.
