I flipping* love Jim Lawson...

Got this bad boy today in the post:



The picture doesn't do it justice - it's amazing. Better than I was expecting - I certainly never thought i'd get a background. Hope he sticks it up on his blog!

Anyone else had a Lawson commision that they haven't posted here yet?




*The word flipping is brought to you in leiu of the rather ruder word that starts with an 'f' and ends in 'ing'.

What sort of commission did you ask for to get that pic? Turtle-bot, Metalhead, or a Don-Mech? It rocks all the way...hm, wonder what a Metalhead, Turtle-bot showdown would look like?

Yeah, post it.

I went to his blog hoping for scans but he hasn't updated in almost two months.

Like discordia said, I did NOT expect him to go all out. Alot of the pics I see on his blog are a simple character on white.

Man, I love Jim Lawson. His style's just great, and he looks amazing with the duo-tone. I'm thinking about asking for a commission too.

Hm. Methinks I should maybe also ask him to do a commission drawing. Maybe Mikey, Raph, or Casey from this sort of angle:

Love it! Loved to see framed art. We should have a thread dedicated to just showing off our art.

Wow, Pow - that's frickin' amazing. I wonder if he was going through a quiet patch, in that he added on so much detail in both. Like I said, I was expecting a white background - I did ask him to put a 'panel border' round it though.

And D.A - I remember that from his blog - its great. The coloured version in your avvie is awesome too...

I asked for a vol 4 style Donatello exo-suit, with mini-Don riding atop/alongside.

I could change the title to - 'New TMNT Art' or something, and everyone can post their previous/new art buys (sketches, original art, commissions, etc) if everyone thinks there's a call for that. It would be kinda neat to have people posting in one place, as opposed to lotsa different threads kicking around. Anyone think there's a need for such a thread? I do!

That'd be cool! If we do it though we should start fresh as to avoid all the in between posts. Also throw it in the collection section maybe?

Yeah great idea! I know myself and a bunch of other members are huge art collectors so that would be cool to have.
