Little Leo :: Ninja Turtle by Red-J Little Leo :: Ninja Turtle by Red-J
Another warm-up sketch done the other day. My girlfriend thought he looked cute, so I decided to colour him this morning. I'll show her when she gets home tonight, and I think she may like him even better. :D

I've been meaning to draw a proper Leonardo for a long time. hopefully that will happen some day soon. But, this will do for now i guess.

I'll be posting up some lines so we can do another colour jam soon...who's up for some of that?

Hey Red, This is truly awesome! I love the Ninja Turtles.

Had another crack at practicing my drawing based on your design except I turned mine into Raphael. Still a long way to go but a bit of fun!

Hello,

I am not sure how to contact you regarding permission to use this brilliant drawing of Leo for a environmental youtube clip about Turtles and Balloons.

The clip really stands out with this to M.C Hammer's 'Can't Touch This'.
Can I contact you at all?

Cheers,

Bec Jaeger

Turtle power! :boogie:

I always preferred Rafael but Leonardo was my second favorite TMNT.
This cute and powerful draw just reminds me of the theme song: Heroes in a half-shell Turtle power!

Congratulations (I'm sure your girlfriend loved it) and thanks for sharing =)

I really like this one, too. Leo is my favourite of the turtles. This isn't your most impressive piece, but I like it a lot anyway, probably because it's Leo.

I also like the bloomed light on the brightest areas. Looks like a "next-gen" video game.

thanks dude! Yeah, she really loved it. I have been pretty good over here. Had a wisdom tooth taken out this week, and I also had a rib pop out of position during soccer, but I'm all fixed up already! :D

How have you been?
