The Party Dude by D-pi The Party Dude by D-pi
The Party Dude!!!
A couple of folks have been drawing Ninja Turtles lately, among my favorites are the ones done by Corey Lewis and Ross Campbell. Now it's my turn.
I'm gonna break convention and lead with Michelangelo. I imagine Mike gained a love for NY party culture, watching parties from beneath the thumping streets downtown. He really likes classic break beats. I can see him literally digging through crates of discarded records for music. Somewhere under the city is one of the biggest record collections.
I'm gonna at least draw all 4 and sell the original drawings on my etsy. This one is on a scrap piece of 11x17 DC Strathmore.

Nice take on the TMNT dude. I especially like your usual lanky athletic build on them, it makes me think they can actually do the crazy acrobatic and ninja moves they are meant to. I also dig the bio's you're doing for them, I can't wait to see your take on Leonardo and Donatello if you chose to draw them as well.
