Nostalgia Sketches

My brother sent me an image a little while back of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sketch that he recently did (top image).  When we were growing up, we used to sketch from the original graphic novel while watching a movie.  We also used to rent horror movies, like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, and create scenes in our sketchpads from those movies.

Anyway, I decided to do a couple of sketches of turtles and also one of my favorite videogames, Ninja Gaiden.  There are a few things that are a bit off in the sketches...I did them after working 8-10 hours (doing caricatures), so I am happy to create something other than just heads/faces for a change.

These were done with ink brush (Faber Castel and Pentel Pocket Brush), Prisma Marker (Violet Mist, 30% Grey), and Various Prismacolor Colored Pencils on chip board.

Thanks to my brother for the inspiration!
