Laird colors on "Early Triceraton"

A while back I posted an image of an early "proto-Triceraton" that I had drawn and Kevin had colored. This new image is of that same drawing, but with my colors, including an abstract background incorporating a fun new technique that someone (can't remember who) had told us about -- sprinkling salt on the art while it was still wet. Although the art still has the 1983 date, this version was probably done a year or two later. -- PL

The colors are awesome on this! The salt effect gives it a real psychadelic look!

-->> O.T. & brain fart :: ..wonder if Pete's brother did any TMNT work all.

I recall a Turtle vs. Dragon pin-up done by a ' LAIRD ' least that's what i think the signature said. But it didn't look like Pete's style.

Hmm.. gonna look that up again.

It's got the look of a picture that the color has been inverted!

Awesome job!

Great!!! I like the expression on the triceratop's face. I wonder why is he so sad...oh well.
