Holy shirt, it's that time again and Northern Guard #3 has been solicited. It's by the same people it's always by--Ty, myself, KT, and Jason on covers. Out in January 2011, the not too distant future. It's everywhere you wanna be, baby.

Did these four interlocking sketch cards for a charity auction deal with March of Dimes and 5Finity Inc. Looks much better in person, these marker drawings never can right for me. I realized too late that I should have stuck to three cards side by side as that's all those card holder things will fit. Maybe they were auctioned off individually? I'm not sure. Fun, though.

Another turtle for reasons I can't begin to imagine--Raphael this time. My version's more in line with the Raph of the original comic books or the first couple movies--the angry, scrappy Raphael more than the sarcastic 'funny' one he was on the cartoon series. So he's like a battle damaged tank, less concerned with finesse and accuracy in a fight and more with inflicting damage.
No pencil version this time around as this started out as Leonardo until I re-thought what I wanted to do with them.

Donatello, probably the turtle I have the most affection for nowadays. I did this much quicker on the heels of the last one than I intended, but they're fairly fun exercises and I tend to need to remind myself drawing is fun every couple of days haha... It's fun to try and make the turtles look physically distinct from one another, and communicate some of their personality in their face and build. I gave Donny more of a nerdy unassuming face, big beak, lankier, taller build than Mike. He's a thinker.
Dunno if I'll keep this up for these but thought it might be interesting to show the pencils and inks again, especially since it changed so much between the two. Wanted to make his face a little more likable, as well as get rid of the tool belt I was originally giving him. Didn't want to cheat the geting-personality-across-in-the-design thing with too many props. He ended up with bicycle gloves for some reason? Maybe this Don drives the turtle cycle exclusively, I dunno.

Michelangelo, the turtle no kid can do without and no adult can stand. Started as a rough sketch from months back, but I liked the face enough to want to see it through. The other three may be coming in the future, similar motif.
Figured I'd post the process stuff, too, seeing as how I actually had it all scanned for a change. These are the DVD extras to which you've become accustomed.
Ocean Master sketch from last night at the kind-of-weekly Toronto Drink & Draw. Always surprised how few people know Orn, seeing as how he was a villain on Brave and the Bold as well as JLU and featured on the Injustice Gang in Grant Morrison's 90s JLA book.

I always think of brown costume Wolverine as Australian Wolverine, due to his inexplicable accent in the 80s Pryde of the X-Men cartoon, which I watched again just this morning. The accent I remembered, but I was seriously surprised to hear him call people "dingo" instead of "bub". Dunno whose idea that was.
