    Thanks so much for your critiques and compliments! Really appreciate you taking the time to check it out.

    And HERE is the start of weekly updates to CHAPTER 2--> http://dawnoftheninja.com/Reader/page/DOTN/02

    4 pages in! New page 3 lettered for the first time and an exciting page 4! Page 5 is done, too, but you have to wait until next Monday for that one!

    If you wanted to share this around on your social networks, that would be super awesome!!

    OH, and this is pretty cool. Randomly I got linked to this. It's a song from AJAPAI who I wasn't familiar with, but they used my Raphael painting for the backdrop. OVER 110,000 VIEWS!! WOW! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHYvwhGMQ3c

    Thanks again for checking out TMNT: DOTN!!

    And the first Turtles Fight scene starts!!!

    For some reason I could not get this one to upload like the others. The jpg was the same size as the others but it kept saying it was too big. Even all the way down to thumbnail size. Finally uploaded it as a PNG screenshot. That worked. Weird. To see it super hi-res go to http://www.DawnoftheNinja.com

    I read the first issue and I like what I see so far. It's great how you guys are delving into Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki's backstory. I also love how the Turtles are prefigured in Yoshi's generals... it's very cool to see a human 'version' of the turtles (I'm guessing that's what you were going for).

    Your art is lush and you're very talented at capturing emotion with light and mise en scene. You have kind of an expressionist thing going on, and I like. There are a couple of things, though... be careful when trying to portray depth of field. In particular, I'm talking about the wide shot on page 2... at that wide an angle, with that far a focal point, with that bright of sunlight, you would have sharp focus from about twenty feet in front of the camera to infinity, while you've thrown the bridge in the near distance out of focus. This makes the scene look toy-like. If you're going to be doing this imitation of DoF a lot, I'd almost recommend you get a DoF calculator and consult that.

    Also, in the page with Raph throwing the manhole cover... it took me a long time to figure out that that was Raph's hand and not some fist-shaped rocket LOL

    But overall, good work. I aprove of what you guys are trying to accomplish and I hope you keep producing! I'll be following!

    Thank you very much for taking the type to write out your thoughts and critiques. There was definitely a learning curve on those early page with the depth of field fx so I see what you're saying there. I learn so much with each page!

    Here's a new page!
