  • Fan Art Pin-up Series: April O'Neil & Donatello

    I'm currently working on a series of FanArt pieces to have with me the first time I get a table in Artist Alley at a local Con. My development as a illustrator has actually been more influenced by cartoons I watched when I was a kid and my teenage years than reading comics. This series is in homage to these cartoons: Thundercats, GI Joe, TMNT, Aeon Flux, Sam Keith's the Maxx, Ralph Bakski's Wizards, Akira.

    I call the piece "Donnie Get's the Girl". Any comments are welcome.

    Alright...it's called Photoshop, open up the curves, grab the highlight eyedropper tool and get rid of that hideous green cast! Well, I just did, and after doing that, this piece really pops! Very nice work!

      I don't have Photoshop. I use a Linux OS and have Gimp and not sure if there's a tool like that on there. Quite frankly I haven't yet adapted to the notion of doing digital correction on my hand drawn art. I'm a traditional illustrator through and through and really dont prefer digital art production. Call me old fashioned. With that said, I'm starting to warm up to the idea of getting a Cintiq for doing digital coloring in the future so in that case, that will throw my traditionalism out the window and I would think uploading a pic like this could easily be corrected in a program on said drawing tablet. You're right I'll get a new pic up without the hideous green. Thanks for the compliment.

          If you're thinking about buying a Cintiq, i'd do a little research first. There are alternatives more reasonably priced.

          I work on a Yiynova MSP19U (it's not HD, but it's the best $600 i've ever spent on art tools)
          Read my webcomic, "1980"

            @Jim Thanks man!

            @RonB Thank you for that suggestion as for alternatives to a Cintiq. It's just when I do make the purchase I want it of the highest quality and one I can draw right on the screen with the stylus.

            Oh, and there's that better pic. That was just laziness that I posted that last one with the green hue, forgive me for that.

              Looks great! I'd love to see a bigger version though.

                Thanks CrazyDiamond! I'll work on making future posts of pics larger.
