[ART] Ross Campbell’s “Artemisia” by meglish

DRAW EVERY DAY 10/12
Okay, so I fell down a tumblr hole this morning, which I think went Exquisite Beast to Yuko Ota to something to Ross Campbell, but I could have sworn had more stops along the way. Anyway. Ross Campbell has some rad drawings of a TMNT fan-comic, which I loved. And was all “Who’s the yellow dude?”, only to keep reading and have that question answered. It’s a lady, Artemisia, and I friggin’ love her already.
Not only is she named for a true badass, Artemisia Gentileschi, but she’s named for a dang ARTIST. I know little about the old Venus de Milo character, but I’ve always been annoyed that she was named for a creation and not a creator, like the other four turtles. (And a lesser nitpick, her color was derivative.) Since my art history classes I’ve had a little bit of a girl-power crush on Artemisia, and really feel like she gels with the rest of the turtles, thematically. This whole thing? It feels so, so right.
She uses a bow and arrow, and all the weapons are made of stuff they’ve scrounged. Campbell described her as shy, and preferring to be at a distance. You guys, just go look at his stuff. I am so into this comic premise.
Relatedly, I watched the first episode of that new Nickelodeon TMNT last night. I am…not sure how I feel about it. “The Krang” annoy the shit out of me. Hm. I may try another episode or two, and keep processing.
As far as my picture, I am trying out a different shading method than before, and I really like it. Also, my strategy now seems to be “draw big, then shrink it down so no one notices the mess”. It’s kinda working.

this. is. incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you so much for drawing Artemisia, she looks amazing in your rendition. just perfect. your work is great. and of course, also thank you for all your interest in my silly TMNT fan-comic!! <3

[comic] Artist Ross Campbell Writing TMNT Fan-Comic
One of our favorite artists and artist of IDW&#8217;s TMNT: Leonardo Mico-Issue, Ross Campbell, takes the TMNT into his own hands with a TMNT fan-comic. Aside from his awesome art style, the most noticeable difference you&#8217;ll find is the inclusion of a new Turtle (Yellow), which he speaks to below:
mooncalfe:

this is the first sketch for a TMNT fan-comic i’m cooking up called Secrets of the Ooze, which is a retelling of the second Turtles movie (a.k.a. the one with Vanilla Ice XD) with my own spin on the story and characters.the biggest thing i’m adding is a 5th Turtle, Artemisia (Artie for short), named after Artemisia Gentileschi. she’s the shy worrywart Turtle and her weapon is the bow-and-arrow (i always felt like each Turtle’s weapon was a metaphor for their personality, so Artie’s had to be the same! she’s too trepidatious to get close to anyone, so she only strikes from afar!). my Turtles don’t have masks, they have natural face markings; they construct their weapons from junk and scraps; and there are some other new things i’m inventing that the Turtles discover about themselves and some new things in their origin.i’m not exactly sure when this is going to happen, i’m hoping next year, i’m hoping i can squeeze a page a week into my schedule and run it as weekly webcomic. it’ll have a loose sketchy style like this drawing, it’ll probably look just like this. it’ll be totally for fun, raw and rough.
