“Wayne Gretzky, on Steroids?”

This scene in the movie was the first time the rest of the characters meet Casey.

As always, this was painted on an iPad using the Procreate app and a plain rubber nib stylus.

If you like this painting, be sure to check out my previous posts in the TMNT 1990 movie series. Also, please share this and the other paintings with your TMNT loving friends!

 

Leo’s Serenity – TMNT 1990 fan art – iPad Painting

Next up in my series of paintings is Leonardo from the 1990 movie.

I have to say that this particular piece has been one of my best painting practices in a long time. It gave me a chance to explore landscape painting and brush techniques within the Procreate iPad app.

I also loved this scene from the movie in terms of composition and colour. I wanted to keep this art detailed yet sketchy at the same time (like my past paintings in this series).

Hope you enjoy this one as much as you have my previous work.

A Fellow Chucker! -TMNT Fan Art (iPad Painting)

Here is my latest art piece featuring a scene from the 1990 Ninja Turtles movie.

In a recent Facebook group poll, I asked members which character they wanted me to paint next from this movie.

Mikey was most voted so here he is twirling his famous nunchucks!

Look Out Raph! (iPad Painting)

I have been a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles franchise for a long time and the first live action movie, released back in 1990, still remains the best iteration we have of the TMNT on the big screen in my opinion.

As a tribute to that film and at the same a chance for me to practice painting and sketching from reference, I am starting a new series of paintings that showcase scenes from the movie that I feel capture the different characters.

For my first post, I present to you my favourite turtle of the bunch; Raphael (Raph).

Look Out Raph!

All the paintings in this series will be done on my iPad using, you guessed it, the awesome Procreate app.

Hope you all enjoy this artistic tribute to the Heroes in a Half Shell!

MTL TTL 09: Down by the Locks (Lachine Canal)

I made a short trip down to Lachine Canal last weekend. It is a real serene place with a calming feel to it. A friend even described it as “the closest feeling of California in Montreal”.

Here is my photographic experience of the beautiful Lachine Canal:

MTL TTL (Montreal Through The Lens)

Montreal is a vibrant and picturesque city that I have known for a long time. When walking in the streets of this historic city, one can’t help notice the many different photographic oppurtunities Montreal provides.

In my new series, Montreal Through The Lens (MTL TTL), I will try and reproduce the fantastic views of this urban jungle and the setting it provides in each of its 4 seasons.

Come and join me through this web blog and gaze at the great city of Montreal as seen through my camera lens.
