After all this time it was only fitting to remake this scene. How would this comic page look if I did it TODAY? Well, here you have it!
Yeah, Reptile is much younger and it's weird to see him this way... but it's cool anyway!
I know the lighting is not realistic but I wanted some kind of "80s-fantasy-cover-art" feeling.
Pencils, ink, brush, COPICS, markers, coloured pencils, acrylics (no digital media except adding some contrast)
