I Won A Contest! (Shameless Self Promotion)

... and I cannot stop bragging about it! Here is the original setup for the contest, from Topless Robot:
Okay, so...earlier today, we found written descriptions of what, supposedly, the new movie Ninja Turtles, April, Splinter and Shredder will look like. But no pictures.
MAKE ME THE PICTURES... You can draw up a movie poster, a scene from the movie, a rendering of the potential toys in package...it just has to include at least one of the characters as described in that article.
 Having just pulled my original Raphael figure out of storage, I knew what I had to do... and did it:

... and I won! Click the link above to see the other great entries, and click here to see Winner #1 (I was #2, and have no problem with that).

Fix That Top

Not as good as a big red dinosaur, but it's still something I got to color at work AND it helped the kindergarteners learn their spelling words, so I'm counting it as a "win." And that means I'm gonna post it.

Mohawks are Manly, Right?

Another attempt to redesign and revitalize a character I've been drawing for over a decade now. I like the ridiculousness of it, which I think fits the over-the-top-ness of the character... it also retains the general profile and the triangular motif.

Plus, there's that mohawk.

So Much For Future Enlightenment

So, as part of my never-ending mission to complete duty rosters while playing Star Trek Online, I decided to let some of my junior officers enjoy a friendly game of poker...

... and of course this happened:

In case you missed all that: five of my officers were enjoying a poker game when one was accused of cheating, and EVERYBODY got into a brawl. My lizard-man "entertainer" was even sent to sickbay. I guess I'm just lucky it wasn't my Emergency Medical Hologram getting injured again.

Halloween in April

I actually did draw this back in October, around Halloween time, but I had not entered into one of my "THIS-time-I'm-going-to-keep-on-top-of-my-blog-FOR-REALZ" periods. I'm currently riding one out, so I'll take advantage and post this (delayed) image of Frankenstein's monster, another of my go-to subjects.
