TMNT cover 10 by dan-duncan TMNT cover 10 by dan-duncan
OK! Issue 10 should be comin' out this week so as usual here is the cover. Sort of. I had some extra time when I did this one and I was honestly pumped to be doing Shredder stuff so I colored it as well, and this is what I submitted to IDW and Nickelodeon.

They didn't care for the the red scarf and the trailing tails didn't make sense because it wasn't in the design (I honestly just liked what it did for the composition) and they especially weren't fans of the "flashlight eyes". So they had Ronda re color it and she did a wonderful job. But I'm still partial to this one.

And if you're a purist I made the print available so you can paste it onto your issue hahahahaa

haha I did awhile back at a con, but you can still get it through DA. I made it available as a print so you only have to go up to the righthand column of this page!

just fantastic !!!
Just read this issue and it's one of my favorite of the series! I was awed by this cover since the first time I saw the solicitations for it. And don't take this the wrong way, but I actually prefer the simplified non-glowing eyes on the final product. It's a lot cleaner and allows the observer to appreciate the stature of the Shredder without getting blinded by what's going on with his eyes.

Anyway, I really appreciated the chance to get a look at your creative process on Shredder's costume design at the back of the issue. Your samurai design elements were a novel contribution, but the streamlined look really makes for a great visual package!
