HAPPY MEMORIES <3

I really love Nickelodeon’s Leatherhead.  He’s never been a TMNT character that really stood out to me, until this interpretation of him.  I just love him, poor baby.

This kinda feels like my life right now.

Turtle Power

I just literally found out today that all four of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and April O’Neil cartoon voice actors will be at Rose City Comic Con in Portland in a few weeks.  They will be signing autographs and doing photo ops, and there will be a TMNT panel.  I am thinking I need to drive down there for the weekend (only a few hours away) and get my nerd on.  How delightful would it be to get my photo taken with both Donatellos (Barry Gordon and Rob Paulsen) from my two favorite Turtles cartoons?  :D  Plus it would just be really nice to add my voice to the ranks of the 30+ year old fans who have gotten the chance to tell these guys how much that show and those characters meant to me growing up, and still do to this day.

I haven’t gone to a con in a REALLY long time.  This would be a super fun little day trip, so I’m going to try and make it work!  Plus I have a dear friend in Portland, so hopefully I could visit with her as well.  And I have another friend outside of Portland who I’ve been meaning to visit… maybe I should just take a few days off work before winter hits and meet the Turtles and visit my friends.

Sooo, the downstairs scanner wouldn&#8217;t work, so I just took a picture of my progress on Leonardo with my regular camera.  Better than the webcam, but still not as good as an actual scan.  Frustrating!!  
But it&#8217;s coming along nicely, I think!

Got the light box out of storage and worked on Leo some more tonight.  Here&#8217;s another crappy webcam picture.  I&#8217;ll try to get it scanned with the downstairs scanner tomorrow so it can be seen more clearly.
 The lettering is awful… I am really bad at lettering, ugh.  I&#8217;m also not too sure if I like his left (our right) hand…. it looks… wrong.  If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them!  It also is way too cramped on the right side, and I think the banner needs to come out more to the right, particularly on the top one.   That might help with the lettering/spacing, too.  This is just a pencil drawing, so there&#8217;s still time to fix it.  But now I&#8217;m going to bed.  This has been so much fun to work on, though!  I truly wasn&#8217;t expecting to feel inspired to draw jack squat for the next few months, so it&#8217;s been a pleasant surprise.

OK, I’m going to bed now, but I wanted to post the super-rough sketches of Donatello and Raphael.  Mikey is to the left of Raph, but he’s not cooperating and I’m too tired to keep trying tonight.  

Donatello’s banner says: "Question: Do You Like Penicillin On Your Pizza?"

And Raphael’s says: "You Gotta Know What a Crumpet Is To Understand Cricket."

And Michelangelo’s banner will say (of course): "Wise Man Say, ‘Forgiveness Is Divine, But Never Pay Full Price For Late Pizza’"

These are way too much fun!  :D

Sketches of Leonardo!  Super rough, because I am lacking my light box and scanner, so I took these pictures with my webcam.  I’ll get my light box tomorrow and try to put this together nicely.

His banner is going to say "They were many, but we kicked… we fought well.”

The other three Turtles are on their way!

Donatello does machines.

About a million years ago, I held a coloring contest on my Harry Potter website.  I drew this piece of line art, and invited people to color it.  I believe I drew pictures for the top winners…. I remember getting a lot of entries, but I lost most of them over the years.  But this one managed to make it from my old computer to this one, so I thought I&#8217;d post it.  Way to go, Andrea L. Peterson, wherever you are!
This was so fun to do, and I really wish that I still had the rest of the entries.  Some of them were really fantastic.

I REALLY long time ago, I did just a couple illustrations of Lady Jessica and Piter de Vries from Frank Herbert’s “Dune”.  I was never really into those books, I think I read one once, and I saw the David Lynch film because I wanted to see Brad Dourif as Piter.  So there’s a tiiiiiny bit of the Lynch-version influence here, but this is more what I saw reading the book.

I have no idea when I drew these. Well over a decade ago, I’m sure.
