Jungle Groupshot


This commission measures 14.5 x 17 inches, making it among one of the largest groupshots that I've ever done. Our local Turtle fan and collector- Elias, stopped by the studio last week and asked me to do him a color drawing of all the Turtles together. Elias didn't actually ask that the drawing be this big, but I started sketching on a vast piece of paper and this is what came out. With the coloring too, I'm noticing that I'm more comfortable when the art is of a size that allows me a little more room to play.

I don't know when I'll actually get into the coloring- most likely not until next week but I'll post the final art when that happens.
