This is more or less how these guys, and April, are going to look on the new mini-series I’m writing and will be drawing for IDW’s TMNT. Nick asked for subtle changes but no big deal. I wanted to make them even smaller compared to humans and with more contrastant heights between themselves but you can win them all, and I’m happy with the consensus we got to.
I’ve been trying new stuff (new for me - how I used to draw them) for a while now, mixing elements I like on other people’s turtles.
My main influences came from Ross Campbell
and Dan Duncan
, but I admit I really dug the new Nickelodeon’s animated series so, a little bit comes from there too.
Also there’s my own personal touch that goes back to a rough sketch I did years ago.
“The Secret History of The Foot Clan” is set for late 2012 with story created by me and co-scripted by me and Erik Burnham
