Sunday Sketches -- Father's Day 2014 (D)

This is my Father's Day contribution for this year. (I actually drew it a little while ago, but it was time to tidy it up and post it somewheres). Of course The Boy is almost always a total delight, but there was that one night when it was just the two of us for dinnertime and things weren't going SO swimmingly. I think most parents (especially new ones) can relate to this feeling.

Turtle Power!

As I mentioned last time, my monthly pencil project for May was a sizable undertaking.  But let's back up to my thought process:

There's a new Ninja Turtles movie coming out.  I'm sure I will see it (because how could I not), but based on, well, pretty much everything about it, I'm not too optimistic about how good it will be.  *single tear*  So I thought to myself, that new movie comes out in May and in retaliation, I will bust out a big TMNT drawing, like the days of ye olde 2007.  

But guess what!  The new movie doesn't come out until August.  Oops.  So...this is my preemptive strike?

I totally underestimated how long this would take.  In the end it was upwards of 20 hours, four different drawings and a lot of Photoshop pasting together.  A bit of a time investment, but it was a fun project.  Michelangelo and Leonardo turned out the best, I think.  And poor Raphael.  For being my favorite he doesn't ever seem to turn out as good as I hope for.

(Seriously though...the new movie looks bad.  Am I right or am I right?)
