TMNT: For Jephael

:iconjephael: asked me to do the eighties Turtles for his website. I don't normally do requests but I haven't drawn the 80's Turtles in AGES so I liked the idea of it.

Drawing these little guys was fun. Last time I drew 80's turtles was for my friend Vicky's Dissected website (which is no longer up :( ) and before then it was when I was at school. Many moons ago. ^^;

I didn't actually need to use a picture reference of them. The 80's Turtles likeness are embedded in my brain for eternity. :XD:

Wait, so YOU drew all those awesome pictures at TMNT Dissected?

That's great! It was just about my favorite TMNT fan site on the internet and those illustrations are what really made it great. I saved them all to my computer when GeoCities went away. You should repost them all here!

Oh hey, not many people seem to know that website! It's good to 'meet' someone else who recognized its awesomeness. Vicky did a great job and made it hilarious.

Yes, I drew those pics :XD: I'm a bit embarrassed about them now because I didn't have a decent art program and was new to computer art. I outlined everything with a pencil tool instead of a brush tool and the lines were so jagged. I never finished drawing them all though. I got stuck drawing a representation of Vernon. I mean, how do you make a jerk like him look like even more of a jerk? :laughing:

It's cool you saved them all. I don't even know if I have them still! I've had three different computers since then and moved house like nine times! I guess they could be on a cd somewhere.

(Thanks for the watch btw!)

I don't know if I'll ever get the Vernon pic done now that The website no longer exists. :(

The 80's one does have that silly zany humour. And Shredder and Krang are brilliant in it.

Hehehe thanks. It's because I drew them so much. All the time. I lived and breathed Turtles in the early nineties. :XD:

I'd say it was only absurd 30% of the time. Atleast when David Wise wrote an episode it had a quality storyline!
