    My idea. Was trying to think of something fun, and went with the tie-in with the turtles and the Renaissance. Just hope people have fun.

  6. Crazy Jetty's Avatar Crazy Jetty says

    Well, it's a great idea! And so obvious, too I'm surprised no one's done it yet. With hindsight, really surprised Toybiz never made toys of the turtles dressed as their namesakes.
    I might try to make something to enter, even.

  7. behindthemask's Avatar behindthemask says

    I'm gonna work on something this week, would love to win a set of these turtles.

  8. behindthemask's Avatar behindthemask says

    Sweet, I was procrastinating on this, I got a great idea, just haven't had much freetime to work on it, I'll attempt some work this weekend on it, Would love to win these figures.

    Yeah, we're all good now. I believe everyone has their power back by now. A few people I know are still in a bad way due to property damage and lack of power, but thankfully no injuries.

    We will ship to Mexico. Just output the Illustrator file as a JPG, GIF, PNG, etc. so it can be posted on the site. Good luck.

    Get those entries in, only a few days to go and only a couple entries, meaning there's a good chance at winning.

    almost finished with my entry! i sketched up a concept of how i wanted ti to look now im redrawing the final version, and inking it! it should be done in a couple of day, really hope i can win those figures love me some TMNT!

  14. Ravenxl7's Avatar Ravenxl7 says

    I feel bad saying this, but I had completely forgotten about this...I did start a drawing, but it got set aside...Just now finished it up, but I've got some...special treatments I want to do before I do the finalized version. I'm being a bit more... elaborate than I need to be, but I shouldn't have too much trouble having the finished scan ready to submit sometime tomorrow.

    I'd love to win, and while I like the idea I came up with for my entry...I'm not sure it's good enough to win... Especially in comparison to that custom figure...

  15. Ravenxl7's Avatar Ravenxl7 says

    Actually was able to finish my entry tonight. Though looking at it...I may have rushed it...Then again when it comes to stuff like this, I'm my own worst critic...

    For anyone curious, it's supposed to be a recreation of the teenage Raphael Sanzio's self-portrait. To accomplish the look of it, I first drew the image on paper. Took a while, but it was worth it. I then took another piece of paper, crumpled it up, and soaked it in some strong tea for several hours. After drying said second piece of paper, I then copied the drawing onto it (scanner built into the printer helps). I about freaked out when it sounded like it was going to rip. Then I re-drew over the lines, as they were faded. I then shaded in areas. I then took this and scanned it into my computer, cropped off the wonky edges, did some editing to get the pencil lines to show-up better, muted the color a bit, and added some grainy fades at the top and bottom...

    All-in-all I think I'm happy with the end result. I didn't quite capture the look of the original like I was hoping for, and I'm not confident that it'll be good enough to win, but...at least I've got a piece I can frame...I guess.

    Edit: Did some more editing, got the lines to look much better...I think...

    Edit2: Found a way to split the difference...

    That custom fig is really neat. I like the way he incorporated all four weapons.

    Been really busy with personal business, only just recently got to work on something. Wasn't really what I originally wanted to do, but I came up with another idea that I think might be pretty neat.

    Hopefully I can get it done in time.

    i managed to finish a day before the end date, its not excatly how i would like it, wish i had time to fully color it on photoshop, but i wanted to get my pic in on time.

  18. Ravenxl7's Avatar Ravenxl7 says

    I still want to win (who wouldn't), but the other entries are rather impressive. The creativity to them is really good. I'm trying to not be overly harsh on myself, but I can't help but feel that mine is inadequate in-comparison. Like I said, I'm my own worst critic, but I'm sure there are others on here who could relate to that.
