TMNT #1 Portfolio Plate by Kevineastman TMNT #1 Portfolio Plate by Kevineastman
In 1988 I wanted to do a portfolio that each plate would feature a scene from each of the TMNT issues--this one is for TMNT #1!

I have to say the amount of detail with I am assuming pencil though if you want to give it a dirtier feel you can smudge the graphite with your finger, unless you did that I am not sure. I would also think that the background would be darker especially for a night scene.

I just gotta say it BELLY FLOP!!

For base pencil work this is classic gold, though I must admit seeing Shredder very basically done is a real new experience. I will probably never track down a copy of #1 so this is as close as I can get.

man.
i see you have the request for critiques attached to this piece, but in all honesty
it seems impossible to do such a thing at this point in comics/art history.

you've contributed so much to illustration, comics, and imagination, it just feels
rude to even think of critiquing you one way or the other.

seeing your work, makes me think of my childhood and seeing the first run of tmnt comics
i just know any critique from me would be biased haha

I love the rawness of this, just like the classic comics. These days everythings all cleaned up shiney. I like the dirtiness of this. The expressions on each of the turtles faces are also classsic: Michelangelo smiling and carefree, Leonardo calm and calculating, Rapheal angry and serious, Donetello...can't quite make out Donny's expression, but still, great composition.

Is Shredder bed diving on the gang? He'd better watch out for Leo's katanas...that might not look too good on youtube xD. Great work!

Ahh... Silver age influence. They don't make 'em like that anymore... [link]

On a minor note, Shredder's left leg looks like he came flying in from the side of the frame, or maybe he's not attacking, perhaps ol' Shred-Head is twisting his body so he can do some Cowabunga Body Surfing!

great stuff. :) i'm really excited to see your works on this site. When i was 8 the turtles were IT man. x)

My brother and i would sit and try to draw them like you. It was really the first story that sparked my interest in the comic industry, the only other comics i had read and had an interest in was The Phantom comics. :) Then i became interested in all the great stories like batman and spiderman and so on, wasn't until i was older that i realized how cool it was that TMNT sat in the same stead as stories from the comic giants.

I hope to put some of my own stories out there sometime soon. It's really very inspirational for me to see that you have joined up with this site. It's a big win for dA and it's members. :)
