. . . . oh well, felt it was time to draw something I don't draw often if at all. And yep, I decided to draw . . .
~ Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael ~
the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
. . . . well, the faces of them at least. 'w'
And to sweeten the deal, I decided to draw them in the style of the old Cartoon. I did considered the 4kids Design, but in the end I went with the old Cartoon cuz I think it looks easier to emulate. INCOMING NOSTALGIA SPEECH
Sadly, unlike pretty much everyone else in the stinkin' web (I think), I didn't grow up with the Old Cartoon (having been born in '92 doesn't help). I only remember two things about the old turtles, one minor and one major. The minor, Mikey making an appearance in that Anti-Drug Cartoon, Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue (anyone remember that one? xP). The second, and most precious TMNT memory I hold . . . . Turtles in Time
. . . . and for the record, I like Turtles in Time Re:Shelled, regardless of the radical changes and the bull-shit whining from the critics.
Aside from that, I mostly grew up knowing the 4kids adaptation of the Turtles, and truthfully I only remember tidbits from the 1st Season. Well, that and I remember being hooked to the 1st TMNT game released by Konami (the 2nd and 3rd ones I never touched on, god knows why I didn't bother =d). After that I only remember owning the TMNT movie game on Wii for awhile (this was before I completely abandoned movie games xP), and that's about it. NOSTALGIA SPEECH OVER
So yeah, even though the franchise as a whole was never up on top in my life, I certainly do enjoy most Turtle related media I get into even these days. And even though I only know so much about the franchise as a whole, I'm pretty sure I know some of the more important things about the series, mainly the personality of the Turtles (the picture above sort of explains it), and how they came to be such in the first place, because of some radioactive ooze (whether it be natural or pfff, alien). |D
Well, with that said, I shut up now. Enjoy.
