TMNT April Oneil piece without any Ninja Turtles in it.

WAT you say? A painting of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles without any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Yes. I did do that thing that I said up there.

The thing is, I LOVE the 1980s version of the Turtles with all the toys and colors and weirdness.  The kid's cartoon was just awesome with that theme song and all the crazy ass characters.  <3 br="br" much.="much." so="so">

I haven't painted a pinup piece in two minutes, and I do love boobies so.  I went with April plus references to all of the things I love:

Checklist of awesome:
Baxter Stockman (as a little fly)
Leonardo (their headbands and weapons)
Usagi Yojimbo (due to to his crossover)
The foot clan
The turtle van
April O'neil

The ooze
and an anonymous pre-adolescent turtle.

I even threw in those cheesy Back to the Future glasses from the 80s - the ones that you could buy from Pizza Hut.  Do you remember those? Yeah, they're on Bebop.

It's all in there - plus you get to see April as a big head cartoon chibi with her tits hanging out and far as I can make them without being a complete perv.  Dare I say it is a good day to be a turtle fan.

be seeing you

F-Yes This is awesome! You neglected to Mention the Hockey Stick for KC Jones! I love how non-pulsed April is at the whole thing. This is a neat evolution of your characters standing on a square chunk of their environment. Neat job! I'm am always impressed sir. You should shoot me an email if all 10 prints don't sell.

A part of me misses your traditional "sphere" head, but another part of me finds this to be an interesting development.

Then the inner childhood crush part of me looks around to make sure the door is closed.

Thanks you guys. Annoyed Coworker, I am in the same boat. I miss it, but I must slowly evolve or die. (^_^)

Is the backpack from Zach the "the fifth turtle" or was it god forbid horribly butchered off of one of the orginal four?
