So the idea with these sketches, you get a handful of group shots mixed with single character images and they're supposed to fight specific enemies. In a vague way I thought of these as a kind of narrative and the battle is about to escalate.
Ah man, thanks! That's really nice of you to say and I'm glad you liked my work in the midst of all those super crazy talented powerhouse artists. Luckily I made a return with the Rocksteady and Bebop micro!
Oh, I knew you had done the B&R Micro. Amazing work, Mr. Bates. Everyone in my circle of friends was going nuts over the issue. We were all impressed by your art and the fantastic story (the writer escapes me.) I really appreciate what you did in that book, you really made those two look great. Can't wait to see any of your future endeavors.
This sounds like it would make for a good drawing exercise possibly, right now I sometimes have difficulty thinking of a particular scene for my drawings, so this is something I might want to try - Lol.
This is really terrific work, was this done with copic marker by chance?
I would be eternally ecstatic if you somehow became the main artist for the ongoing. The way you draw the TMNT is my favorite interpretation out of all of the talented artists working on the IDW books.
