I've been a fan of the ninja turtles since I was a kid, but in recent years I've gotten back into the franchise in a big way! ...not because of the Bay movie...that one's not for me, though I do hope others enjoy it...but just getting into all things TMNT, old movies, comics and shows.

This image pulls from a lot of different sources. The turtles themselves look somewhere between the original '87 turtles and the 2003 series. Every thing else about them I took from the 2012 Nickelodeon series - skin color, eye color, and accessories, and most especially giving them three toes (That just makes more sense to me, they have three digit hands, so why not three digit feet? The two toes never made sense to me). The Foot Soldiers are not from any specific canon either, colors are kinda like a slightly lighter version of the first movie and the 2012 series, the head I made off of my own memories of the '87 series, and the logo is a modified version of the 2003 one. I kinda wanted to mix it up so it wasn't clear what canon these were from (because they aren't from any of them :XD: ).

This image was REALLY hard for me to make. Apparently I have difficulties with cartoon turtles. I had a hard time with a) figuring out just how to draw them and b) deciding on what to have them doing once I did. I didn't want either a generic fight scene or a scene of them boiled down to one-not personalities. And no matter what canon I looked at I couldn't figure out how to draw these guys. I ended up having to look up other people's sketches so I could figure out how they were constructed. This doesn't seem like it should've been this hard! :XD:
...also, it's a bit dark...whoops.

Love it!! I'm a big TMNT fan, too! I loved the old series, and all the movies (I even like the new one, just 'cuz! lol)
