The Cover that was by dogmeatsausage The Cover that was by dogmeatsausage
Here is the final printed cover which I had to really separate tones and values to make certain it read and printed without problems. Do you prefer the original or this one?

The other was very dark - so Raphael to me.  The mood was darker, too - all the smoke and shadows.  I think I like it better than this one, but the colors here are fantastic!  I notice that the wounds on the Foot warrior are not "lethal" (unless he bleeds to death) and involve what looks like shoulder injuries to incapacitate him.  Are the turtles in this story sticking to the moral code of not killing but only wounding enemies?  Or, am I reading this absolutely wrong?  Since I didn't read the comic, I don't know what the story line is.  Besides, in each incarnation, they either kill others or don't.

GREAT ARTWORK!!!!

I like them both, but this one lost a little something when it became lighter. On the original verson, there was more red from the fire off Raph's skin, I really like that and how it outlined him. But of course, things have to be adjusted for printing....

i know we need better advancements in printing technology! i really like the outlined affect of the original contrasted against the monochrome pallette

Both pieces are totally cool, but it's easier to see the characters in this version.

thanks yes totally my doing but it is based off of one poignant scene from the book. Fabulously written by Tristan Huw Jones, so in that aspect I can't take total credit

it was Tales of TMNT #36 it was a stand alone story but related to the events of "city at war" the story was from the perspective of the NYPD and they are unaware of the turtles existence...

I prefer this one simply because of the seperation, but I like the palette/mood on the other better.
