Ninja Turtle by ChristopherStevens Ninja Turtle by ChristopherStevens
Sorry for the long delay in updates. Life has been in the way a lot these past few months.

I'm still painting as much as I can. It's a medium that is speaking to me more than any other has in my life. I've got a long way to go, but I'm really enjoying the highs and lows of this learning process.

I've wanted to revisit the Ninja Turtles for years, but never did for one reason or another. They were huge to me as a kid. Not the show so much as the comics. For about a year, they were all I drew. The comics had a serious tone that was never really captured by any other medium. They had a huge impact on me. I was going for a stronger turtle look than you normally see. It sort of works.

Oils on masonite.

Yeah the original Ninja Turtles all wore red Bandanas. It wasn't until later that they all got different colors associated with them in order to further distinguish their personalities(i.e Leonardo got blue because he was suppose to be calm, Rafael kept red for aggression,  Mikey got Orange because he was young and vibrant., etc.)
