Blast from the Past repost #24: TMNT #2 character sketches

This is kind of embarrassing. I had completely forgotten that I had used this stuff for the twenty-fourth installment of my original "Blast from the Past" archive on the Planet Racers website, and thus repeated myself by posting the same stuff as my "palblog" entry for Tuesday, September 16, 2008. D'oh!

I obviously don't need to re-post what I've already posted twice, but just to keep these "Blast from the Past" reposts consistent, I will do so here. I will try in the future to not do this... but I gotta tell ya, sometimes it's hard keeping all this stuff straight!

Here's the original "Blast from the Past" post:

Continuing on from last week, here are a few other things I found in that folder of art from the original TMNT #2. First is this sheet of character sketches which I drew when we were working out the details of TMNT#2. At the top are two versions of Baxter Stockman... he ended up looking a little bit different in the finished comic. Below them, on the left is an early Mouser sketch. And on the right is perhaps the first ever drawing of April, who at that time was just an unnamed assistant to Baxter.

Below are two costume design sketches for April and Baxter...

... and the drawing below somehow got slipped into my TMNT #2 folder by accident -- it's my first rough layout sketch for the drawing which I would do for the cover to TMNT #4. -- PL

  1. I'm pretty sure that you already showed us those first two images on this blog, Mr. Laird.
