Artist CornerToday, I really want to feature someone close to me cause it frustrates the hell out of me to see so many people with more favorites, comments, etc when someone who has so much talent is basically ignored. He is SUCH a talented traditional artist, a fan of TMNT/Sonic and is even working on a comic I HIGHLY recommend. Go check him out! Give him the love he deserves!

Other Amazing Pieces
TMNT-Healing TouchThe rain whipped at April O'Neil's face as she and her best friend dashed over roof tops to escape from the wrath of the Kraang bots after them. They had been in a chase after the five of them had taken back the power cell and had all split to keep the Kraang busy. She and Donatello had lost the others blocks ago and they weren't even sure if they were being followed. But they didn't exactly want to slow down to find out.TMNT-Healing Touch1 year ago in Romance More Like This
April's apartment came into view and the red head had to will herself to keep going. Donatello swept her up in his arms and they flew across the way and went crashing through the unlocked window.
The rain poured in, soaking the carpet. April stood up and shut the windows, locking them and drew the blinds with shaky arms. That had been way too close for comfort. She hoped that no one had seen them enter the building.
April turned to come face to face with Donatello. He had a look of worry in his eyes and she placed a hand on his arm.
"It's okay. My aunt's gone for the

April felt the breeze whistling through New York City on her face, a smirk spreading on her lips knowing a hooded figure wasn't far behind her. She turned her head and could see a shadow dart to another building.
The ginger picked up her feet and walked into the pizzeria. The smell of melted cheese, baked bread and veggies filled her nostrils. She never really appreciated pizza that much until she had met the guys. Now...pizza was kind of a lifestyle. April thought she'd get sick of it...but she didn't.
The teenager picked up the pizza she had ordered, payed and left. She stepped back onto the busy city sidewalk and smiled at each stranger that passed by. She missed being outside, among people other than her mutant friends...she loved them but she needed more company than hearing Mikey's jokes, dealing with Raph's temper, Leonardo's obsession with Space Heroes and Donatello's need to be cooped up in his lap.
"Hey there, princess...that pizza for us?"
April was snapped out of her though

"Come on, Donnie. This is embarrassing."
"This isn't fair."
"You have no right to declare what is and isn't fair."
April O'Neil struggled in Donatello's grasp, but she knew it was no use. The mutant had her over his shoulder and pinned her legs to his plastron so she couldn't make a run for it. The teenager sighed and rested her elbow on his shell and cheek against her hand.
"Donnie, let me go. I can walk."
"Nope. You had your chance."
"Donnie, I'm not a little kid. You don't have to babysit me."
The mutant ninja stopped in his tracks. April immediately regretted uttering her last sentence. She could feel the anger rising from him without having to see his face. And April had never seen Donatello mad. Well, at least not at her.
Donatello roughly grabbed April and held her in front of him, her feet lightly dangling above the cement of a building's roof. All of his features were twisted into a deep frown, his eyes ablaze with anger. E
TMNT-ColdSomething tickled April's conscious and slapped her out of the dream world. Did she have to go to the bathroom? No...that wasn't it. She blinked sleepily and wiped at the river of drool that escaped her lips and turned over in her bed.TMNT-Cold1 year ago in Romance More Like This
The red head closed her eyes and willed herself to go back to sleep. She had been having a pleasant dream, too...but the longer she stayed awake the more she honestly forgot what it had been about.
The teenager tossed a few more times before sighing and kicked the covers off. She glanced over at the alarm clock on the make shift nightstand in her bedroom in the sewers and had to stop herself from groaning. It was only five in the morning. On a Saturday. Life was cruel.
April sat up and rubbed at her eyes. Well, if she couldn't get back to sleep, she might as well find something to do. She opened her door and peered into the dark hallway. She slid through the opening and clicked it shut gently, not wanting to wake her mutant friends who had had a long nig
TMNT-Healing Touch (Alternative Version)It was cold and rainy when the frantic knocking came from April O'Neil's window. It was the dead of night and the red head froze from fear. Was it The Kraang? The Foot Clan? Had one of them found her?TMNT-Healing Touch (Alternative Version)1 year ago in Romance More Like This
After a moment of the frantic knocking, April got the guts to get up and grab the baseball bat from underneath her bed. She crept to the glass, waiting for it to be plowed in. For bots to be crashing through or ninjas to attack her from every direction. But nothing came. Only the sound of knocking continued.
April glanced through the glass and gasped. She opened the window and Donatello came crashing into her room. She shut the window before too much water could get in and locked it, drawing the curtains. She turned to her best friend and let her eyes adjust in the darkness.
Donatello was dripping wet with mud and cuts all over his body. His eyes were closed and he seemed flushed. She bent beside him and ran her fingers over his skin. The ninja opened his eyes and let out a groan.
TMNT-WarmThe rain fell hard in New York City and April and Donatello had nearly gotten out of a fight with the Foot Clan alive. Everywhere they turned, there was another member. Here. There. Everywhere. It was intoxicating and the rain seamed to make it seem as though there were twice as many members than there were.TMNT-Warm1 year ago in Romance More Like This
April felt herself be tugged through a hole and into an abandoned warehouse. Outside she could hear the footsteps of the Clan race by each and every way. She shivered, feeling the water run over her body like icy fingers.
The boxes and crates gave her no warmth. No light. Just dust, cobwebs and the cold. The cruel, cruel cold. The red head could feel her teeth chatter and never before had she wanted to be in front of a nice fire or in her dry, warm bed more than anything in the world.
April glanced up at Donnie who only watched her from his spot in the shadows. She wanted to say something but she didn’t want to give away their hiding spot. It could have been minutes but if fe
TMNT-VanillaTMNT-Vanilla1 year ago in Romance More Like This
The ding of the oven shook April out of her thoughts and woke up her senses. The smell of vanilla wafted in the air and tickled her nose. The teenager smiled and inhaled the heavenly scent.
Putting a glove on, April opened the oven and took out the cake she had been slaving over for a few hours now. She let it cool, taking out frosting and a plate for the cake. Once it was cool enough, April set the cake onto the plate and began to decorate it.
Honestly, April wasn't much of a chef. She wasn't horrible at cooking, but left that to her dad and her aunt. But she was quite proud of herself for making the cake. Not only did it smell good, it looked good.
When April was done with frosting the cake, she smiled proudly to herself and picked up the plate. Allowing her feet to guide the way, the red head walk through the living room, past the dojo, the boys' rooms and didn't stop until she came to the entrance of Donatello's laboratory. The teenager shifted the wait of the plate into one hand a
TMNT-Never AloneI waited for you today,TMNT-Never Alone1 year ago in Romance More Like This
But you didn't show.
It was funny how the supposedly best night of your life could turn into a nightmare. Then again, that seemed to happen a lot to April O'Neil. Right when something good happens to her, it gets yanked away.
No, no, no...
I needed you today,
So where did you go?
April watched the kids through the window on the roof of the auditorium. The girls in their bright coloured gowns and the boys in tuxes either too big or too small on them danced all over the room...she should be down there enjoying her time, not sitting on the roof in the cold. She should be enjoying her Prom, not hiding from it...
You told me to call,
Said you'd be there.
And though I haven't seen you,
Are you still there?
Her eyes went from one boy to the next, sadness in her eyes. She had been asked there by a guy...a guy that didn't think she was some freak for once. She thought that she finally found a guy that she could maybe call her own without it being som

Each step felt like there was lead in Donatello's feet. Of course that wasn't the case, but despite what people expected of him, Donatello had a hard time waking up in the morning.
The bathroom he and his brothers shared came into view and the mutant smiled and yawned. He could already hear his brothers in the bathroom as they did their daily morning routine.
The tallest of the ninjas stepped in, feeling the cold tile on his bare feet. Raphael was busy applying an Avon product onto his arm as Michelangelo finished brushing his teeth and reached for some floss. Leonardo grabbed a green towel and prepared to take a shower.
Donatello sighed. Perhaps it was his OCD, but he enjoyed the routine. Waking up, greeting his brothers, getting ready for the day...it was a soothing process that eased Donatello's nerves and stresses that might come up throughout the day.
Soft pitter patter of feet could be heard heading towards the bathroom. A petite figure walked in and stood in front of the sink. D
TMNT-SupportDonatello paused outside of the green curtain, uncertainty building up inside of his stomach. He gulped and suddenly wondered if it had been a good idea to go there that night. After everything that had happened...The ninja sighed and finally opened the curtains a tad with hesitation.TMNT-Support1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Nothing. He pulled the curtains back more and poked his head into the makeshift room meant for the red head. Donatello knew he should give the girl her space...but after the run in with Karai that day...he had to make sure she was okay.
To the mutant's left, a futon had been pushed into the corner of the room, a single lamp giving the right amount of light sat beside white pillow. A hole in the ceiling where a street lamp from afar shot light through the hole and into the sewer. April's laptop was plugged into an extension chord and the place where her fan would be remained empty.
Donatello knitted his brow and crawled into the room, closing the curtain behind him. Her room was empty. No sign of
TMNT-Practice Makes PerfectIt's been six months since April had joined the boys below the surface, six months since her father had been kidnapped and six months since she had started training with Master Splinter. Donatello couldn’t believe how fast the six months had flown by snd already how talented of a ninja April had become.TMNT-Practice Makes Perfect2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Donatello liked to take some time off from inventing and building to watch Master Splinter and April from the shadows. She had grown so strong and fast, but no where near as good as him, his brothers and the rat they called their “father.” But he still admired how much determination she had while fighting. It was like her life depended on it. Well, it did, but still.
The more time flew by, the more April stayed longer and longer in the turtles’ lair. She had become so close to the family living in the sewers that it only fit that she had her own space. Her own room for whenever she felt like staying. When she wasn’t there, Donnie loved to go in and just tak
TMNT-SickTo Donatello, there was nothing worse than a cold. Nope. Nada. Zippo. It meant he couldn’t go on patrol. Meant even working on an invention would send him into a massive migraine. Meant training would make him run to the bathroom needing to puke.TMNT-Sick1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
So all in all, he couldn’t do anything he loved. Splinter forced the mutant to either lay in his room or on the couch pretty much doing nothing until he got better. And when Donatello got sick, he was sick for a while. And he’d always have all the symptoms. Fever, chills, nausea, name it and he probably had it.
Laying on the couch, Donnie stared up at the ceiling of the lair bundled in blankets. His brothers were on patrol and Splinter was probably meditating in his room., which meant the mutant was all alone. Completely and utterly alone. And he hated it. Even trying to force himself to sit up hurt too much. So he just laid there pitifully.
“Hello? Anyone here?” A female voice rang from close by. Donatello
TMNT-Something MoreTMNT-Something More1 year ago in Romance More Like This
April gasped and sat up on the couch. Blue eyes adjusted to the darkness and she struggled to catch her breath. She struggled to move her limbs and found that she had been tucked in a purple blanket. Donatello's blanket...
The red head flashed back to her dream. The image of her kissing the ninja didn't leave her head, even if she rubbed at her eyes. The thing is...that hasn't been the first dream. There have been others where they're holding hands, walking together on the beach, holding one another...
April untangled herself out of the blanket and threw her legs over the side of the couch and buried her head into her hands. This had started when she had moved in with the guys. Maybe the stress has gone to her head? She had been hanging out a lot more with Donatello...but did she really like him like that?
The teenager sighed and dropped her hands. She supposed that could be the case. She was jealous of Karai when Donatello talked so kindly of her skills. She always reached out to him,
TMNT-HandsTMNT-Hands1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Life with three fingers on each hand had always been a bit difficult for Donatello growing up. As a scientist, how bulky his digits were always got in the way and it was hard to grasp some items with the way they were shaped. But because he had grown up with his hands, he never thought much about them.
He never thought much about them, that is, until he met April. Compared to her, his hands were monstrous. They were big and bulky and so...deformed compared to the soft palms the female had, how perfectly shaped the digits of her fingers were and how neatly groomed she kept them.
Around April, Donnie felt very self conscious about his hands. He always tried to find something to preoccupy them when the red head was around, whether it was with his bo staff or some sort of invention he was working on at the time. She never seemed to notice or really care, which relaxed Donatello more than anything else could when around her.
“Hey, Donnie, can I see your hands for a sec?”

"Are you sure I can handle this?"
"Yes. Also, make sure her milk isn't too hot where it scalds her. But make sure it's not too cold. She's a bit picky about the temperature of her bottle so you might have to experiment with it a bit. I hope you don't mind."
"Maybe I should scald you."
"Raph, please take this seriously. I get you'd much rather be with Leo or Mikey right now but we really need you to do this."
"Why couldn't you get Leo again? Or Mikey? Splinter?"
"Because Splinter isn't comfortable with coming to the surface and there's no way we're keeping the kid in the sewers for a long period of time. And Leo was our choice but we don't want you beating on MIkey during the whole mission. And Mikey would never be able to be responsible enough to keep the kid safe and not have the house be burning down."

TMNT-MomentTMNT-Moment1 year ago in Romance More Like This
The warmth of the light from the sun kissed Donatello's skin, wrapping him in a warm blanket that summer created. The mutant stretched his legs and wiggled his toes, enjoying the calming feeling stretching brought.
Donatello glanced at the papers and textbooks in front of him on the carpet of the dojo, the sun from the broken concrete in the roof shining down on him and the papers. He turned and locked his eyes on the petite figure of April O'Neil beside him.
The teenager continued to type away, a smile on her face. He had agreed to help her with some projects, and because of him, they had nearly finished the projects in an hour. Most of the research papers and the like they had finished were neatly stacked and ready to be turned in.
At first April had only focused working on her own, but with how slow it could be, she was happy to have Donatello help in any way he could. And even though some of the work was bland and vague, he enjoyed the time spent with the red head.

The balding man ran towards her, arms outstretched. April could feel her heart skip a beat, her lips quivering.
She had reached the edge of the building, a small gap between her ledge and the ledge her father was running to.
"Come on, dad. You can do it! Jump! Just a little closer now..."
Her father's blue eyes shimmered in the light from the streets below. So close...so close...April reached out her arm. Leo and the others were holding the Kraang off. It was the perfect plan. Her father was seconds away from finally being free. Finally being able to go home with her...April felt herself smile, tears streaming down her face.
Kirby grinned and leaped. He stretched out his hand towards his daughter. How long had it been since they had last seen each other? Weeks? Months? A year? April's hair was longer. Darker. Her muscles were more defined and she seemed more confident in the way she held herself.
Their fingers brushed and eyes connected. That was it. It was over. Their suffering
TMNT-OrigamiTMNT-Origami1 year ago in Romance More Like This
In the midst of stress, fighting, and three annoying mutants, Donatello and April liked to wind down together by making one thing April had never learned to make until she had met the turtles: origami.
When the purple clad ninja discovered she had never tried origami before, he immediately taught her the basics of paper folding. Honestly, April didn't really have much interest in learning how to create the paper art, but she couldn't resist the pleading eyes of the one mutant she had a soft spot for. And in the end, origami ended up being the one stress reliever the red head truly needed.
April and Donatello would spend hours together just folding paper. They'd try to out creative the other in what shapes they could fold. To see who could make the most impressive piece.
Donatello always naturally won. He had been doing it longer than her, but she enjoyed the thrill of the competition none the less. She'd search through books at her school's library for techniques on paper folding so sh
TMNT-ComfortDonatello looked over the screen of his T-phone in concern. He scrolled down his texts and calls to his best friend, but he hadn’t heard from her all day. Which was odd, for April O’Neil. Even when she was busy, she made time to reply to him. So he didn’t understand why she wasn’t that day.TMNT-Comfort1 year ago in Drama More Like This
Even when the next day passed and he didn’t hear from her, he knew something must be terribly wrong. His brothers told him to not worry about it, that she was probably busy living her ‘normal’ life. But Donatello couldn’t just sit around.
The apartment belonging to April’s aunt came into view and the mutant silently edged closer and closer to the window belonging to the red head he loved. He peered in and found the room dark, but he could see a small figure on the bed hunched over.
Donatello swallowed the lump in his throat and tapped on the glass before he could have second thoughts. The figure moved to glance at the window but looked away
TMNT-SilenceIt had been a long day for April and all she wanted more than anything in the world was for some peace and quiet. She supposed it had been a bad idea going down to visit her turtle friends, since none of them seem to understand the concept of what ‘peace and quiet’ was. Well, except for Splinter, but still.TMNT-Silence1 year ago in Romance More Like This
But yet, there she was. Sitting in the turtles’ living room and listening to the never ending chatter of her most trusted friend, Donatello. He was going on about some new invention he was making and using an incredible discovery he had uncovered while digging around the local dump.
April’s head buzzed with the beginning of a headache. What was that about coding? To be honest, she had stopped listening to the turtle somewhere after ‘ectoplasmic egg beater.’ And even though she had been reduced to nodding and some “ugh huh”s now and then, he didn’t seem to lose the excitement or speed of his chatter. She felt bad, because normally

Donatello stared at the glass container with an unhealthy obsession. He couldn't help it. Even if he wanted to pry his eyes away, his body rejected his request. Whenever he walked into the lab now, his eyes naturally found the container that stored what used to be Timothy, A.K.A the Pulverizer.
He and the blob could stare at one another for hours. Sometimes the eyes would close and take a sleep like state. Donatello would find a place to sit and just take in the creature he had created. Well, let it be created.
Seeing Timothy like that killed Donatello. If only he had been there in time...stopped him...he'd still be the bubbly dufus his brothers both loved and hated. Still be wearing that stupid green suit of his, still trying to find his calling in life...
"Donnie, you would not believe my day! Not only did my aunt buy the story we created, she-Donnie?" April walked into the lab. Donatello jumped and threw the blanket he used to cover Timothy over his container and looked away.

"Daddy? Dad? Daaad?"
Magdalene Hamato poked her head into her parents' room, the study, and her room as she walked through the house. She had been looking for her father for the past five minutes and she was getting a little frustrated.
"Daddy?" She walked down the stairs and poked her head into the kitchen where her mother, April, sometimes worked with a cup of coffee in hand at the kitchen table. Her mother was at work that day with an emergency at the science center. It left her and her father alone for the day, but about an hour ago her father had disappeared.
Maggie blew a piece of hair out of her face with a huff and peeked into the living room and even checked outside of the old farmhouse she and her parents lived in. Nothing.
The seven year old pouted back inside to return to her room to play with her toys by herself when a flash of purple caught her eye. Maggie backtracked and looked at the object on the counter of the kitchen more closely. It was her father's mask.
TMNT-ExhaleThey say that if you love someone, you should let them go. Like if you take in a sick bird and nurse it back to health. In the end, you release it. But deep down, you hope it comes back because during that time, you learned to love that bird. You cared about that bird. And even though you want that bird to be free and happy, you also want it there with you.TMNT-Exhale1 year ago in Romance More Like This
That's how Donatello felt when it came to April O'Neil. She was his sick bird. The bird he helped nurture until the Kraang were defeated and they saved April's dad. After all those years and time together, she was healed and could be released back into the world.
Donatello didn't want her to leave. Didn't want to let her go. She was his. He was so in love with her, it hurt. He didn't know how to go back to 'normal,' whatever that was. He couldn't recall life before the beautiful red head came into it. His life revolved around her.
So when her dad came back into the picture, he knew it was time to say goodbye. She was a young woman,
TMNT-SkinThere had been many time where Donatello imagined himself alone with April. Just him and her with no brothers there to embarrass him, no father there to distract him, and most importantly, no monsters to get in the way of him and the girl of his dreams.TMNT-Skin1 year ago in Romance More Like This
He loved to imagine himself kissing her. Donatello tried to imagine what her lips would feel like against his fingers, his skin, his lips...but he knew that’d probably never happen because of what he was. A turtle? Kinda. A man? Sorta. He wasn’t an animal but he sure as hell wasn’t a human. Why would someone like April love a monstrosity like him?
But yet...here she was. Standing in front of him with no interruptions and on her own free will. No dream. No restraints. No invention. Just pure, raw will. And it was beautiful.
Donatello had imagined her skin to be soft, but it was softer in person than he imagined. Grazing his fingers along her arms and cheeks, the mutant looked into the deep blue pools of water that were
