Redbubble:

Because someone really super cool *cough* RosieRamblings *cough* wanted boy band turtles on a t-shirt, I’ve started to set up a Redbubble shop ;) Once it’s all set you can purchase prints, shirts, etc with my art on it. Also, if there is something you’d like but do not see in the store, feel free to ask and I can add it :D I’ll link to the shop once it’s all ready.

Touch-ups:

I am going to go through and fix some of my older TMNT art. The boys were my first non-humaneque subjects and their faces were super flat and weird on a lot of my earlier stuff. I’m going to give them turtle beaks and repost (mainly the portrait series).

Personal Blog:

Remember, for Nugg Laif scheduling/updates, and non-art related stuff, check out my personal tumblr casey-jones-with-tits! We are doing another screening/rp tonight is anyone wants to join. Info is at Casey Tits!

hysteriaalicescream: I like the tattoos on Raph and I was just wondering if you plan on putting tats on Mikey, Leo or Donnie

Hi there— thanks for the question!

Raphael’s tattoo is important to my visual interpretation of his character. The same goes for the boys’ scars— I have a story for each one. His tattoo is also very personal as it is my sister’s actual sleeve.

For this reason I would not draw tattoos for the other brothers because it would lessen the importance of his sleeve. There is a story behind his ink and it is a story his brothers do not share

Me and the lovely Ikiracake with our sweet Lego TMNT keychains. Best purchase ever. I got Raph and Don— Cake has the oddly rage-filled Leo and Mikey :D

I’m keeping you JSYK. Every time you’re up here we’re gonna have to visit, and bring our new babies.

EVERY NIGHT WHEN I LOOK UP AT THE MOON AND MY RUSSIAN IMMIGRANT MOUSE FAMILY IS ASLEEP, I WILL SING ‘SOMEWHEEERE OUT THEREEEE’ AND I’LL KNOW THAT YOU, RAGE!LEO, AND MIKEY WILL BE COMPLETING THAT DUET!

On Turts and Tats
Okay, folks, a lot of you are new and I’m assuming it’s because of the movie. If so, welcome to the fandom!
Anyhoo, I’ve received numerous comments on Raphael’s tattoo: some good, some ‘HUH? BUT HE IS TURTLE. TURTLE NO HAVE TATTOO WHAA?’. A giant talking turtle… trained in martial arts by a talking rat, somehow able to afford pizza 6 times a weeks, BUT HOLD THE PHONE— TAT?
This is FANart, folks. If I want Raph to have a full traditional Japanese sleeve then that cranky fucker is getting a full sleeve. (The sleeve is actually my sister’s sleeve— I doodled his arm when she was getting the last spots filled in the spring). 
The beauty of fan fiction and fan art is that it is created by the fans. If you want to see the original characters behave/look like the originals: read the comics, watch the cartoons, and see the films. 
I talked with Ikiracake about this last night— on the style I use and it came down to the sort of adult versions of the 2012 turtles. I liked Donnie’s glasses in the film, so I throw those in, but I keep the gap, the crack, the freckles, and the honour from 2k12. I’ve also given them specific scars: Donnie’s eye, shoulder, and bicep, Leo’s thigh and cheek, Raph’s everywhere. 
I am most certainly not the first to do this and the beauty is finding fan artists’ fun twists on the characters!
These guys have been around for 30 years— that’s a lot of time for fans to play, so let us play! And have your own fun with these guys— they can handle it ;)

I want to thank all of you who kept me company while I stream coloured this monstrosity. You guys are the best motivation ever <33

Also, I received a few asks about my style inspiration, and honestly I just pick pieces from all the comic/toon/film incarnations with a few added Badger bits :)

Hope you like it! <33 Jess

So how would Raph get tattoos? Being a big scary mutant and all…

With suspension of belief, my dear. A fic explaining it is in the works ;)

It is! All will be explained very soon. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll probably need therapy, and you’ll have a whole new appreciation for the storage and distribution of honour among the Hamato clan :)

This is why I adore adoradork. She writes a headcannon for my headcannons so I don’t have to <3

TMNT Commission Status: Open (I will take 5 at a time)

If you are interested, please:

  • contact me via e-mail: jessica.ann.byrnes@gmail.com

  • send any questions of concerns as a tumblr ask
  • be sure to specify how you would like me to interpret the characters. Would you like me to use my versions or another? Also, know that I am not so hot when it comes to copying styles, I assume you commissioned me because you like my style— I’m pretty shitty at mimicking 2k12/2k3/comic interpretations/etc… I draw use their gear/colourings/etc but it would be in my style.

Dear Turtle Project

Here is my letter from Mikey to the incredibly talented Lydjachan’s adorable daughter Jackie! (It was difficult to find the perfect shade of orange, hehe!)

I’ve found that most of the awesome ladies I’ve interacted with in the Turtle fandom are mothers with their own bitty shellheads and I thought this might be a fun project: writing letters to girls and boys from their favorite turtles!

We could make a tumblr page for it :D The return address would of course have to be a NYC manhole ;)

What do you guys think? Does anyone have a child that would love to hear from their favorite turtle or just want to brighten a kid’s day?

Yes, yes, yes!!! My son and youngest nephew would love this!

OMG IF MY SON COULD READ!!! and my nephew would definitely love this as well, but he’s only 5 and doesn’t know how to read yet either°

AWESOME PROJECT :)

It’s okay! You could always read it to them :D

that’s true! :) 

I’m going to Toronto next week— I could totally mail it then and it would actually get to you at a decent time :D

(via rmjez)

redslittleblue: I just wanted to drop by and tell you that I absolutely adore your artwork. It's so clean, and crisp, and gorgeous! I really love seeing the TMNT pieces the most and I have to admit you have helped my crush on Donnie 2014 develop so deeply lol. Anyway, on that embarrassing note, keep up the great and amazing work and I'm always looking forward to seeing what's next! :)

Wow— I don’t know what to say! Thank you, my dear— it’s lovely comments like these from lovely people like you that motivate me to go through the day and quite possibly draw a turtle <33

Thank you for the confidence boost and kind words! 

Hugs and best wishes <33 Jess
