Art-heavy personal blog of mostly Homestuck and Ninja Turtles. Also bones, cats, the human body, SCIENCE!, politics, Star Trek, and Watchmen. Occasionally NSFW but everything's tagged.
Inspired by the stylized “unitooth” look the turtles have in the 2012 cartoon (versus Casey Jones, who has individually detailed teeth) and the utter weirdness anatomy-wise* of their teeth in the 2014 movie: what if instead of teeth the turtles retained their bony beaks?
*Probably only noticeable if you’ve had human dental anatomy, but the fact that the mesial corners of their maxillary lateral incisors are rounded instead of the distal corners just looks so bizarre, among other things. And poor Donnie definitely wasn’t joking about his retainer. If his dentition is supposed to be analogous with human dentition then he’s got significant misalignment between his maxillary and mandibular teeth.
Leo spends the entirety of the Hashi scene making this face and it’s absolutely flawless.
Illustration for a fic I’ve been working on where Donnie’s glasses get broken during a fight and it sucks big time.
Planning on doing full color for when the fic is posted but since I’ve had to back-burner it while I finish other stuff here are the lines.
A pile of gross troll dorks for spookyscarygummydicks, my 2,000th follower!
Sollux doesn’t know how he ended up on the bottom of the pile, he just knows it needs to get off of him liike at lea2t two 2econd2 ago.
I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like
'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'
plus one story/drawing that everyone loves
'really? that one?’
trying to get a better handle on this nerd’s face
Pubescent Mutant-blood Ninja Troll AU.
Instead of being stabbed with a culling fork four genetically deviant troll grubs were tossed down what was thought to be a particularly nasty bottomless pit in the furthest recesses of the brooding caverns, where they were found and raised by a rogue green-blooded turtlerat lusus with a fondness for martial arts.
Donnie’s a gross fish dude who’s way too comfortable having his software grubs crawl all over him, Leo communes with the Ancient Ones, Raph has emotion-fueled telekenetics, and Mikey has heard enough “pizza horns” jokes to last a lifetime.
how did I not know about the fringe border effect in sai this changes EVERYTHING
Trying out this watercolor tutorial on a 90s!Don pencil sketch.
Conclusion: fun as heck (and high-cut styles for dudes definitely need to come back).
