YO, Gonna drop a little TMNT art right chea. Triceraton Emperor Zanmoran concept sketches and some character turn art, created some time in 2015. This is from the season 4 episode,”The Arena of Carnage” and voiced by one of my favorites, Michael Ironside. There is a lot of great work by a bunch of talented folks on this show.

New Art: A Gift From Baxter

Sorry I’m a day late, but it’s Saturday, and it’s still *this* week, right? Anyway, made some last minute changes to this one and threw Baxter’s name into it. Hope you dig! Just wrapped a big project, so I’ll be back next week with more art, sketches and musings.

StarPoint, 2016

New Art: StarPoint, 2016

Hello Hello!
Yet another rush week. StarPoint was something I put together on the fly this morning. Yesterday, we experienced a 12 hour power out (apparently due to a crow flying into a circuit breaker at an LADWP Power Distribution center). In between running around and tossing fridge content, I decided to take some time off and get some reading and relaxation in. It was definitely needed. Thank you, Mr. Crow! Also, RIP Mr. Crow (I’m assuming). Luckily it didn’t mess up my schedule.

Yes, it was another rush job. As I’m sure next weeks will be as well. It’s yet another deadline week. But that should be it for a while! Hope you dig it!
Based on a couple sketches I stitched together:

New Art: At Last, 2016

Good Morning/Afternoon!
I kinda rocked a rush job this week. Had my head set on working on a different piece, but didn’t think I’d finish it on time. Instead, I grabbed some sketches I had lying around, chopped them up and put this together. It still took me longer than anticipated.

I stepped out of my comfort zone for this, and tried a few different techniques. I guess that’s the goal of these weekly pieces. I’m notoriously obsessive over trying to make my work perfect, and thus killing the flavor of the original sketch. I hit these each week with no direction, just try to come up with the best possible combination of line, color, and context on the fly. Sometimes I’m happy with the results, and other times I just have to put it out there and let the world be the judge. Either way, I’m happy I’ve been able to somewhat consistently share new work. I hope you feel the same!

It’s based on this sketch below:

Bet, 2016

New Art: Bet, 2016

Good morning and happy Friday! Got a new one for you this week, “Bet: Escape From The Chalkboard Assassination Squad”. It came together pretty quickly and I’m pretty happy with the results. I parts from two older sketches and combined them for this piece. I think the ones I throw together at the last minute are the ones that turn out the best. If you follow me in Snapchat (username: Cluepac), you can catch glimpses of these new pieces as I work on them. It’s hella fun.

New Art: Right This Way

A little, one-eyed, one-eared, Cat butler to the multiverse? don’t know. Found a post it with this little dude sketched on it. Most likely from a TMNT meeting. I’m really happy that I’ve been updating this blog regularly. It was getting a bit rusty over the past 5-6 years. Anyway, here’s the piece, click on the image for a larger version.

Good mornfternoon! I found this Post-it sketch from a couple years ago (I think), drawn during a TMNT meeting.
I threw a quick coloring on it, dropped a couple two-tree textures and the results are here.
