I did a whole bunch of these color sketches, so prepare to see a steady stream of Ninja Toitles.

I the way you used white to show the lighting! What type of markers did you use for the coloring?

(And a bit off topic, but do you have a list of comics you've worked on? I'd like to check out those comics and buy them when I can. ^_^ I am mainly familiar with your Sonic comic work).

I really love the action in this one, and all of the little weapons and ninjas flying around in the background are awesome. The blue looks really nice too, so vivid.

Hey, I'm cool with seeing these! It's pretty neat to see some traditional coloring! The colors seem nice and vibrant on this one. The values make it pop, and once again the style you're using is giving a nice texture to character. The blue is especially sticking out to me and I love it, but that's because I love blue, haha!

Thanks! I love the color blue as well.
I wonder now and again just how big of a role it plays in my preference for characters and stuff. If Leonardo was exactly the same, only with the orange mask, would he still be my favorite? Hmmmm...

That's awesome! :D
Hmmm, wow, that's an interesting thought there: colors playing a role on how we like characters. I guess I could wonder that about Sonic...but I think it's the personality of a character that sticks out to me. That's how Sonic came to be my favorite. I don't know lots about TMNT, but from what little I've seen of movies and some of the cartoons, Mikey was my favorite personality-wise, and orange isn't even a color I care for that much.

Thanks, if it were in my possession I'd be happy to sell it to you, but all of these were done for the 'Secret History of the Foot Clan' limited editions. I don't know when they'll go up for sell but I'm guessing it's not to far from now.

Thanks, yeah I'm curious when they'll pop up. It's probably my fault they aren't up yet as I turned them in late.
