I did this drawing of the Turtles a long time ago actually, but it's one of my favorites. I was able to convince my coworker, Steve Wands, to color another piece for me. I love Steve's colors, and I have been dying for him to color yet another piece of mine. He had previously colored a Batman/ Spawn image for me, and also a Hellboy/ BPRD image that is one of my all time favorites.
I think we really work well together, and I think his colors on this TMNT piece really kicks butt! He is usually very loose and free with his inks and colors, but since I was pretty tight with the digital inks on this piece, he decided to keep it simple. It really pops, and it really captures the Turtles that I really like. I like the Turtles that are colored very brightly, yet Steve was able to also make the piece very moody, which is hard to do. It doesn't make them too cartoony, which I think is key in depicting the characters. Great job Steve! When you have a new drawing done, I would love to return the favor and color a piece of yours!
Just for the hell of it, and because his Hellboy colors came out so well when I converted it to grayscale, I thought I would do that here, and post that too! Let me know what you think of it. Also, below, I'm posting the Hellboy colors done by Steve, so you can see what I mean!
More drawings and posts to keep coming daily, I have a LOT to show to kick off this blog!
Hope you like,
