Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
Sooooo I haven't properly picked up a pencil in about 8 years. Probably since I left college. I did start off doing a picture of Olly Murs but that was pretty much a disaster after only half his face. So I decided to swap to one of my other great loves, which or course is the TMNT. This is a copy from the screencap below. It's from episode 5, I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman and Leo, having warned our heroes that ninjas move silently, careers off a roof and down a fire escape. Creating a massive din in the process.
Unfortunately I couldn't quite get the hang of Donnie's head shape (it's a killer, trust me - I can see why Leatherhead goes for the face) so I left him out. I used 6B pencil for the initial drawing then added the colour and background using Photoplus. It took me roughly 3-4 hours. And for my first attempt, I'm pretty pleased. It's a bit hard because the cartoon's done in 3D animation and you sort of have to transfer that to a 2D easel but still try and keep them looking 3D. But this turned out quite well. ≧◠◡◠≦✌
Edit: This picture has been seen by Greg Cipes himself! :-D
