Ninja Must Practice

Still on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle kick (no pun intended) I'm practicing the forms. This warm-up is based on an awesome reference wallpaper by Capmoreno found in Deviant Art. I did give it a few alterations. The breast-plate sort of follows the standard. Capmoreno had done his own interpretation, beautifully colored, and someone had pointed out that the collar area was different. Critics are good, but sometimes they get too picky. The original piece is simply awesome, gritty, and tending towards realism. I mean, why get so picky when the original idea is a cartoon. Artists can interpret and give anything their own "flavor" or twist. I believe that is what makes art original.  Thanks so much for the inspiration, Captain!
