    TMNT Concept

    This is a concept I had for redesigning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wanted to make it look like something that actually crawled out of the sewers. I got rid of the bright masks and elbow pads and used stuff you would actually find in the sewer.

    This is a real nice design and a solid drawing. The tire kneepads are a nice touch. But I think your piece loses some impact because you haven't separated the lights and darks in temperature. It looks like your lights are cool and so your shadows should be warmer. Otherwise great piece.

    i like the drawing, it is a nice monster. But i think you completely destroyed this tutle. I think they are very difficult to redesign. here is a kind of character that was formed by the original comics and used in te animations. First they are ninjas and second they are good. That means they are no monsters, they are friendly, they are cool. This one don't even look any more like a turtle. He is too heavy to do ninjatricks. He looks evil. His weapons are not the classic ninjaknifes. You can't even see his face, so he makes you afraid of him.

    Nice! I like the redesign. I think Colin Boyer made a good call about the lights and darks, but otherwise great!

    I remember a friend of mine had a turtles calender with differnet versions of the character and my favorite was one where they looked very much like real turtles it was creepy and weird and wonderful.

    Again thanks everyone for the feedback. The reason I didn't go with traditional ninja weapons is that I wanted to base the characters more in reality. I know you can only base so much in reality when it comes to a big mutant turtle that walks in talks. I just wanted the turtles to make their own weapons out of what they might come across in the sewers or in the garbage. Thats why I went with the pitchforks. The original comics were much darker, and i wanted to get back to that. You will be able to see in the upcoming turtles that they are much more turtle like than the ones you see in the cartoons.

    This really reminds me of the Michael Zulli version of the Turtles that went for a much more realistic approach - outside of the original Eastman and Laird issues, this was my favorite mini-series.

    I love it!
