The Great Before and After by TheAmericanDream The Great Before and After by TheAmericanDream
Yes, dudes and dudettes! Major league pizza eating is back in town!

Foot Messenger: We have been waiting for you, Miss O'Neil.
April: Am I behind on my Sony payments again? Ha ha ha.
Foot Messenger: Your mouth may yet bring you much trouble, Miss O'Neil. I deliver a pizza. (opens box)
"Eat It!"

So I've been drawing April O'Neil lately, pretty awesome, and was considering doing some fan art in her more accurate proportions so I started drawing the pic on the left, It grew on me quickly. Just a doodle, I later got asked to draw some thinner April so my resolve to continue with it grew. But then suddenly it hit me, the bust shot angle just felt like it was screaming for some before and after treatment and the panel on the right was born! The obvious results of excess pizza and a few other things were what was being implied with the first panel anyway, so I just ran with it and turned it into a Before and After. I had a lot of fun drawing this (and I'm pretty happy with how it came out I think her hair is finally feeling natural to draw without using too much reference at this point), I definitely would like to do more Before and Afters like this in the near future.


For the record, I don't know which panel I prefer, there's things I like about them both.
Hope you've been enjoying these pics!

I happen to prefer the slender pic, but she looks pretty and special in both. All of your takes on her look good, so the pizza isn't doing any damage.

I love the sultry look April has in the right panel. That aside, the differences are actually quite accurate. :) Great job!

I'm of two minds here. I infinitely prefer her face in the left panel, but I love those huge boobs, and the implied fat body in the right hand one. (Actually, I'm not un-fond of her boobs in either panel.)

I've seen this piece more than a few times. Liked it, but never gave much thought to it (not to say I didn't appreciate it; you're a fantastic artist!) and moved on.

Quite recently, while going through a family photo album, I caught a few pictures of our old family reunions...

Left one is the spitting image of my aunt, 1994...the right one is that same aunt, 2004...

That, and I've recently been getting back into TMNT much like yourself, lol. xD

Yeah, but then again, I guess that's married life. She actually got the weight loss surgery quite recently, but she'd gained a lot of weight like...well, just about everybody in my family, lol.

Indeed you should, if I may be so bold. Especially after a series of drawings like your April O'Neil pieces, it really puts the real effect of the gaining into perspective.

That hair and all yellow jumpsuit are what make her design so getting it just right was the hardest but most important part I think. 80's anime/cartoon girls are generally fairly cool I found.
