Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by 3nrique Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by 3nrique
TURTLES!

It always bugged me that even though they were "teenagers" they never look it. So I decided to play on that a little bit. I also thought that their personality should reflect their appearance a bit more...so tadaaa!

As far as the colors go, I chose from two different pallets and combine them, one was from the most resent show, and the other from the first action figures from back in the day.

hope yall likes!

Cowabunga dudes!

Very slick, I like the style...but I think they look more like bullfrogs than turtles.

Dunno, ralph always struck me as the type to be a skinny loud mouth and mike probably needs to look closer to donnies eyes in this picture as the guy generally sounds pretty stoned. I do like leo though, as the leader of these goobers I could see him making that face 90% of the time!

I love how toy tried to capture there personalities with the different physical builds of each turtle.  Looks like Raph And Knuckles (Sonic Boom) have been working out together.

This picture's kinda hilarious in hindsight, considering how the 2012 revisions of the turtles now have different body shapes reflective to their personalities and roles in the team.

Ok... I can see Rash, Pimple and Zitz on Mike, Raph and Leo respectively, but Don is kinda off the picture. I like the fact that:
1. they have tails (as turtles do)
2. their morphology represents the type of combat they engage

But Don, being a geek, is a top fighter as his brothers. Also, Raph kinda looks like Slash

In overall, I like the result (escept for Don).

That seems to be the general consensus. I personally don't mind him being super geeky and nerdy. Quite the oposite, he is just as good as the other guys, and I like the idea that his moves and fighting style are more based on theory, so he is a very technical fighter. Just because he looks nerdy, doesnt mean he can't kick ass!

The problem is not the attitude, but the body looks.

Look at Michaelangelo: He is definitively not like Leo, not even near like Raph, but he looks thin and yet defined as an athlete. Don on the other hand looks not even close to a thumb-fighter. He looks like a bookworm (only lacking the thick glasses), and that is not the idea of a top fighter. I personally have the same point of view you do have: Don uses his intellect to overpower his oponents not using fancy moves or raw power, but more of a technical fighter who knows where to hit and have the greatest results. Remember: they do train a lot, and he maybe is not the more gimnastic or quick or better strategist of the team, but he does have great shape because of the training. That is what it is lacking in the picture, and that is what is bothering it. You took a little too far the idea of Don being a nerd.

For Raph I love the face and the attitude, also the type of armor you gave him. Maybe,just maybe less bulkier (between how he is now and Leo) and without the spikes in the shell could do better on him as they resemble a different type of turtle than his brothers. Btw, Leo and Mike are perfect the way they are (love the flip-flops).

I like the pic, but those two details on Raph and Leo are stoping me from loving it.

Yes, tails! Male turtles have tails 8D I was always annoyed that they never seemed to have tails in the cartoons/movies. At least, not in the old ones.
