Leonardo leads by ReevolveR Leonardo leads by ReevolveR
Hey guys!
It's no secret that I like the TMNT, I love the original cartoon, I have a ton of toys, loved the snes games the 90's movie... you know, all of that good stuff! Not too long ago me and my wife went to watch the new movie, and boy did I hated it!... well, most of it... some parts are quite cool but all in all it was quite a let down for me.
Anyway, first thing I knew about this new movie (besides that thing about wanting to make the turtles an alien race ;S) was that the character design was rather weird. I'm not going to lie, I did not like the direction the took, it felt like it was trying too hard to be hip and good for close ups (tons of unnecessary stuff on the turtles). So I thought.. hey! I see potential in these designs! Why not give them the "Reevolver treatment" and see what happens! 
Well this is what happen, I obviously didn't do a realistic design like the one in the movie, I chose to take the designs and play with them in my own style. 

Let me know if you guys like this dude! if enough people ask for the rest of the turtles I'll render them all! I already designed Raph and Mikey. I'm still working on Donnie because he is my favorite of them all! 

So make sure you let me know if you want the rest ok?

Have a good one!

S.

This is extremely sweet! I got to work on the animation composite ref sketches for TMNT 2003 animation series! ;) :D I also did concept sketches for TMNT 2007 movie which I still need to dig up, and the 2014 movie TMNT. I'll be working on concept designs for the 2016 Bay movie too~

This is really good! I refuse to believe you drew it. It looks like it's ready to be animated!

I truly am the only person on this planet who likes the new movie. XD

oh...MYGAWD!

I love the concept a bunch, man! Creeme raza, que la pelicula nueva tuvo tanto mentado problema! Si, claro, cada vez que Mikey estuvo en pantalla fue divertido, pero eso era lo unico bueno...

I'm not sure what they were thinking with Shredder, i will never understand why the hell he's Ironman...

but anyway, this design is great! There was a lot of good ideas for the designs in the movies, but I'm with you that they didn't pull them off right. I like the accessories on this a lot and I cant' wait for the rest of them!  HURRY!!! I MUST SEE MIKEY!!!

-PeZ!

Really liking the extra touches you added there, the clothing isn't too bold but it works well. I assume you are going to give each one their own personal quirks that helps convey their personality outside of body language?

I think some certain points are the clue:
- the shoulder pads: they never had them but I always thought it would look way better

-the shape of the head: some designs were made too round (nowadays 3d cartoon)while in the movie they were too wide. I think it should be around the sizes you used.  The lengh of the nose was another recurrent trouble, but you made it balanced.

- The pupils and eye size: pupils not completely white (they lose expression), not being a single dot (too plain) and not huge (too japanese). The one used here has reasonable proportions and a lot of life.

-the clothing: I like the accesories (cool mask), the pads on the arms and legs. The only thing I'd fix is the little hole between the frontal and side part, below the arm; if it's a turtle that should be its shell, and it doesn't have holes there, it makes it look like they're wearing it as clothes, while in reality is part of them. Nice shell pattern.

Even if you made it normal sized it would look good, so congratz.

Thanks for your comments! I really appreciate when people like you make time to write down what they feel work and what doesn't. I'll keep this in mind. Also, to answer your question, it is painted in Photoshop, no 3d was involved here.. aside from reference materials of course ;)
