I'm going to try and do each sketch challenge at the Temple of Cartoon Mojo this quarter and having a four day weekend really allowed me to go all out. The theme, obviously, is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I've not drawn them or read their comic since the early nineties when they first came out. It always bothered me they all looked exactly alike and didn't resemble turtles very well. So, I spent a little time figuring out how the TMNT would appear in my style and more "realistic". The shape of their shells, front and back, reflect their personalities now. It also always bothered me they didn't really look like ninjas so I looked up some authentic, historical apparel and applied what I felt they could use. I did give each a little hint to their normal colors but subdued. All in all, this one I'm very happy with!

This was drawn during the Steeler's win over the Raven's. Go Steelers!
