Blast from the Past #274: TMNT group shot

I don't know if this drawing was ever published -- looking at it, I have the sense that I've seen it used somewhere, but I'm not sure.



Anyway, it's another "inked with a real brush" pin-up drawing that I did in 1987. -- PL

  1. I really like this drawing. I was wondering if you ever sold these sketches.

  3. Looks like the turtles are running into battle and Leo is just starnding there starring the foe down like he is all badbutt.

    Mickelangelo's nunchucku are depicted two ways. One has the string look while the other the chain look. Jim said not long ago that the chains were your design while the string was Kevin's design when drawing. I was curious to a follow up on that to confirm. Its a silly question I know,but call this turtle head curious when he sees both.

    When we created the TMNT, Kevin and I both drew Mike's nunchaku with chains. I've always thought they looked better that way, though they are more time-consuming to draw. I can't recall offhand if we ever used the "string" look in the comics, at least the ones we drew together.

    One other example of Kevin changing something in the design of the TMNT was his alteration of the "tie" style belt closure to the "clip" style. As I recall, this was something he just started doing in the books and I went along with it, as (a) it looked fine, and (b) it was simpler to draw. -- PL

  5. Thanks for the insight Mr. Laird! I've always been curious about details like both of those examples!

    msemilylaird,just want to say thanks again for the notion of the Fugitree and the idea of saling the figure/ornaments!

  6. -->> Can someone share an example of a real-life Nunchucku set connected with a "stringed" attachment.

    This is something i have not ever though much about before.

    If you look at the Wikipedia page for Nunchucks it includes pictures of many various kinds including rope sets and chain sets and what the sticks can be made of.

    Courtney, you could have my permission, but I am not sure that would mean anything, as I no longer own the rights to that drawing. The new owner of the TMNT copyrights and trademarks, Viacom, now holds those rights. -- PL
