20 Years Later: DONATELLO by TheWoodenKing 20 Years Later: DONATELLO by TheWoodenKing
its funny that you never see much Donatello art, everyone draws Leonardo the Leader, Raphael the Rebel or Michelangelo the mischief-maker but no one draws much of old geeky Donnie :)

so anyways i found a couple of old Turtle pics and decided to try drawing all the Teenage ninjas!

more old pics on my blog: [link]

This broke my heart (in a good way :D). TMNT was everything to me as a child, and I drew many a fanart. However, I don't have any of those pictures anymore. This picture reminded of all those old works...made me sad, but happy someone else was clearly as touched as I was. Plus, Donny was my favorite.

this looks amazing!!! both of them! ;)

i see a lot of Donnie art, myself, maybe we just look at TMNT art in different places/circles of artists? i always got the impression that most people draw Raph, then Leo and Don maybe tied, then Mike in last spot. which is interesting, i did a favorite Turtle poll a while back and while Raph topped with almost 200 people, Don was second with about 190, then Mike, and Leo in last place barely clearing 100 voters. i don't know how indicative that is of TMNT fans as a whole but almost 650 voters is a lot.

ANYWAY, sorry to distract from your awesome artwork here! i love your rendition, all the pouches and Don's expression are great.

weirdly enough thats the truth, i always felt that no one liked Donnie but i am proven wrong :P
i personally like Raph and Donnie first then Mikey and Leo last.

Thanks again!
i have some more old sketch from when i was 6 and plan to update them something. Most of them are Turtles!

Donnie was always my fav from the very beginning. And while I've never really thought about it, it IS a travesty that he hasn't received more face-time. Kudos to you sir, for sticking with him for as long as you have!

This is an odd observation since EVERY dude I've met says Donatello is his favorite. Also please tell me that is in fact a bra... I know Donnie was always practicing his own kind of Weird Science

Ah okay, although it would be really rad if Donatello and Anthony Michael Hall teamed up. By the way: love the pic. And the concept, Slimer too!
