How to draw Nick TMNT

A couple times of year the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) holds a book fair. Part of the proceeds of all the purchase go to the PTO and they use the money to fund projects around school.

I always try to support the PTO when ever I can. They do a lot for the kids and our school. I like to get a book or two for my classroom, and often times I buy something for myself.

This time I picked up a How to Draw book based on the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show. The book shows step-by-step how to draw the four turtles, Splinter, and Shredder. I think it's kind of funny they left out April. I guess they don't think boys would't want to draw her.

 Over a couple of pages the book shows how to draw each character.

I always loved the how to draw books by Lee J. Ames when I was a kid. I generally found that I got better results if I use the books as a reference and not really a step-by-step guide. I like to look at the 2nd step to get started then skip to the final step. I'm not sure why that works for me.

I was feeling artsy so I did a few drawings last night.

Leonardo is the leader in blue. He does anything to get his ninjas through.
He's outlined in marker but colored with colored pencils.

 Michelangelo, he's one of a kind, and you know just were to find him when it's party time.
Mikey is outlined and colored with markers.
