Leonardo from TMNT, obviously. takes the new record for longest cg painting i've done, spending probably 75% of that time on the background.

I remember in my childhood I played turtles with my friends :D

The background is very well done.
Not a shock that it took you some time.
Leonardo looks good too :-)

Wow, that is superbly rendered. The BG's the best part X3. Of course Leonardo is very cool looking too. Hm... how nostalgic.... TMNT was one of my favorite shows back in the day.

TMNT will rule foreva!! And Leonardo looks really cool with your soft CGing! Cool mood with all that green everywhere. And the time spent in background was so worthy! Really good, I have no complains ^^

You know.. actualy I do have one other thing to say about this... I LOVE the lighting, it seems so complete-- the cast shadows and even the hint of pale color on the far right of the background-- but something's still missing. He has so many wonderful cast shadows on his body but he casts none on the ground. It might be neat to see the barest hint of a cast shodow on the ground, similar to way you've hinted at the light source with the wash of light on the right background.

Just a suggestion. ;3
