Hey, thank you very much!!!! I'm a little over 20 pages into this graphic novel. It'll be pretty huge when it's all done. And I've been talking to IDW about working on the official Turtles books, so hopefully that pans out!! :D

Really appreciate the support!!

Holy CRAP this's fantastic. I'm so used to the simple black and white, somewhat sketchy Mirage comics, but this is a whole 'nother animal. The colors, the detail, the dynamics and expression make the characters seem so -real-.

I love you people for this already. TMNT definitely needs some new life breathed into it, and it makes me so happy to see the raw, mature themes in your concept art.I think people don't realize how badass the turtles can be when applied to reality. It's time this franchise was given a chance to grow up and pay homage to its older generation of fans.

Keep on rockin', guys. I'm waiting for more.

HA! Not as long as the FIRST one! The garden seen. PHEW! And there are a lot more of those pages coming up. I'm getting a bit faster now that I'm figuring out what I'm doing.

THANKS!

Nope. Painting another page right now. And the publisher I work with (IDW) has the rights to print new TMNT books so we're totally working that angle!

Blows my MIND! Love the blur effect to give a greater feeling of depth, and the detail!! Stellar!

Thank you!! I was iffy about using that effect (especially after spending hours fully painting all the details into the background!) but thought it might be worth it. Glad you like it!

yes very nice! moving back to ks in two weeks to live in the country. just bought a bamboo tablet and cs5 so i should be cranking some stuff out after we get settled in! As a old Tmnt fan i love the approach you are taking, love the more adult graphic approach, reminds me of the originals in that sense. Keep it up! hungry to see more!
BTW The Last Unicorn is amazing! My daughters and I are loving it!

Thank you! Much more coming! And if you didn't already see it, I have a bunch of concept art from the project and another page with a young Oroku Saki and Oroku Nagi (his dad).

Thank you very much! Yeah, we're full into production and are in talks with publishers and film companies. HOPING one of those connections will pan out! People are watching though! If everyone spreads the word and the DawnoftheNinja.com link we might get the attention we need to make this huge!

Thank you!

Wow I love how brutal this project is. I'm glad the fans of the franchise have continued the mature nature. You got some great detail I wish Nick and Mirage maybe did something to make this an offcial project instead of just a fan project. What you guys are doing is epic.

RayDillon Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! Appreciate that! And yeah, we're doing what we can to develop it into something official. Can talk specifics, but we're talking with publishers and film companies who COULD (if they see fit) make this a reality. If you didn't already see the new MICHAEL BAY is set to product *a* TMNT movie in 2011. Hopefully it's ours!!

Spread the news and maybe we can convince them!

Thank you!!
