Feb Draw a Day 27 by will-Ruzicka Feb Draw a Day 27 by will-Ruzicka
I get shit for this one from the Raphael camp, but for me Leonardo was the best Turtle. I honestly liked Raph the least... he was just a hot headed jerk in my opinion. Anyway, back to Leo, I like the color blue, I like swords best and I like heroic characters best.

I should probably draw more turtles, I had a lot of ideas for tonights piece, and I was spinning my wheels trying to come up with something that had elements of everything I wanted to do. Finally settled on something a little simpler for times sake.

This is awesome!  Love the fighting stance!  I agree with you entirely on Leonardo, he's my fav too!  Some consider him bland but I don't because he's so heroic and a damn good fighter, as you said.  I noticed in the 1987 series he'd come to April's rescue a lot, more than the others did.

Thanks! The TV show had him act as the standard hero character a lot, didn't it?

It's honestly more that I like the others more than Raph is all. He's a cool character, I just like the others more. ^^;;

Glad you like. Working on my last image for the month right now!

Raphael was a tool. Michaelangelo was annoying.
I always preferred Leo and Don myself.

And. Wow. April.
She's Sexy. =D
I'm surprised though. I thought you'd find a way to fit Irma in the TMNT pic that you were obviously gonna do. ;)

Irma bothered me because the designers went out of their way to make her look frumpy and unattractive... however... I did almost put glasses on April as a joke saying "the only thing missing from her design..."

Nice job on Leo and April! It does have a video game-esque feel of Epic-ness!

You really nailed it with those lighting effects on the explosion too. Did one of Shredder's inventions blow up in some warehouse?

Something like that. I was going to have some bad guy back there, but nothing was seeming very epic... so I just went Michael Bay on it and blew the shit up. 9_9;

No hate for Leo or Raph on my part; however, for me, it's all about Donatello son! Tech Geeks always get the babes. Speaking of which: April! :love:

It's not that I HATED Raph... It's just, everyone else is more likable to me. Mikey is the funny stoner guy, Donatello is the smart nerdy guy, Leo is the heroic level headed guy and then Raph is self centered hot head. And April wears a jump suit. woo.

In which series? In the 80s cartoon I think Raphael was funny, in the movies he was nuts, and everything from the first movie spilled into the 2000s series, which also spelled the end of the series from it's original creator.

He wasn't so bad in the original series. But in the movies on, he was a jerk. I don't mean to offend, I know everyone loves him most. I don't. 9_9;;

Is this from the more recent incarnation or the 80's cartoon? I couldn't dissern any individual personlity from the turtles in the old cartoon, but the one that came in the 2000's was really good.

Either way, very well done, I really like the explosion, it's something I've never quite gotten right.

Since this was for my 80's themed Draw a Day, this would be primarily based on the 80's cartoon. I never actually watched the more recent one from 2000. Not that it didn't look good or anything.

Thanks for the comment!

You win again!

Do you know of Dragon's Lair? I think your style would own on an image of Dirk & Daphne!

I used to think that game was amazing. Whenever I saw it on those silly game shows where people play arcade games. However, I've never played the actual game myself... well, other than the NES one, but I could never get past the first jump in that version. 9_9;;

I know someone at work who would criticize me mercilessly if I got anything Don Bluth did wrong, so I would have to be careful about drawing those two. (Though Daphne is pretty hot... 9_9 )

They made a cartoon out of it for a little while, too, so I thought maybe it would fit into your theme. But if you're not familiar with the material, I don't want to take you too far astray! Especially if a merciless coworker might make matters worse...

Even without Dragon's Lair, I've been really enjoying your daily drawings. At least this year's a leap year so I'll get to enjoy one extra day, right?

Keep on rocking! Love your stuff!

I don't remember the crappy cartoon all that well... looked it up on youtube. Wow... bad. Anyway, I think I might do that for tonight, but based more on the game... it was technically a cartoon from the 80's... just... with choices.

Yeah, the cartoon was pretty awful... But at least it now gives you an excuse to draw Dragon's Lair for your February theme!

Love it. Totally captures the feel of the 80's cartoon turtles. Kind of reminds me a littl of the scene from the arcade game.
