Hi folks!

First up I regret not spending as much time on here as I like. I am still in the process of changing careers from graphic designer to comic artist so am straddling quite a lot a the moment.

And things are happening; I've started a couple of comic collabs, and also have been starting to sign up for comic cons. I've got in to Though Bubble in Leeds later this year, which is all a bit massive for me :)

BUT... I have lots of new art to show! It's come a long way since my previous art thread (http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=52036) that I feel it deserves a fresh start on a new thread. Hope no one minds.

So here we go, starting with my latest baby:

(Oh but first... I know a few people here are on tumblr. You are very welcome to share my work on there, but please reblog from my own tumblr -- not repost. I've included direct links for each piece.)

So I went to go see TMNT 2 again today, for the second time, to celebrate how bloody lucky we are in the UK to have it released 5 days earlier than everywhere else (makes a change from last time anyway).

And all I could think about in the plane scene was B.A Baracus. Made me laugh anyway, and inspired me to draw this.

I really love this film, I could happily watch it again a dozen times.

I got a good chuckle out of that last one.

He he, thanks. I loved that scene. His eyes!!! They've really outdone themselves this time with the expressions.

And in a totally different style, here's a piece I chanced upon on my computer last night. It was an unfinished sketch so naturally I dropped everything and worked on it a bit more. Cause you know, priorities!

Oo and almost forgot, here's a new piece of Splinter I'm working on!

Hi guys and gals, here's my latest piece - Raph of course!!

http://catherinebyrne.co.uk/_hosted/technodrome/raph-shady-700.jpg

And for the first time, I've made one of those timelapse videos for it:

Totally going waaaay over the top with this.

Hope you're all keeping well and thanks for looking y'all.

OMG I just had a look at this thread and it's so bloody out of date.

Here's some more TMNT stuff I've drawn since June.

Thanks for looking!

"Hardly Training"

Then summer holidays happened so I went analog:

Got back home, and digitally coloured this one of Raph and my character Mizzle having a chill on the sofa:

Which I also did a timelapse for:

And then Inktober happened!

Here's a few I took a step further and added backgrounds to (I have these for sale as postcards (https://cat-byrne.myshopify.com/collections/postcards-by-cat-byrne) on my shop)

Here's a time-lapse video of me inking that Leo:

Then a random picture I drew while tabling at Thought Bubble in November... of Raph in a kitty onesie, with his brothers laughing at him in the background:

Which I did another video for because I love doing these:

And finally, with xmas market stalls coming up I transferred some of my art onto wood blocks (all by hand from the sawing to the varnishing)...
