Look Mommy, Ninja Turtles 8D by JamesmanTheRegenold Look Mommy, Ninja Turtles 8D by JamesmanTheRegenold
Surprised? |D

. . . . 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 ~

. . . . 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. :)


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.


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. :)

Ah, yes, Re-Shelled is a pretty good game. I mean, it's not perfect, and to me, I think the worst of it is that they made completely original compositions instead of using remixes of the music from the original Turtles in Time. It's not perfect, and there's a lot of room for improvement, but I do think most critics are waaaay too harsh on Re-Shelled. It's still very fun and awesome, and I love how a lot of the stuff was redone.

Anywho, nice pic, man! I think you did pretty well in capturing the personality of the four brothers! :D

Also, the ooze itself, in pretty much every continuity, does have an alien origin. The thing that really makes me angry about Michael Bay, though, is that (from what I can gather) he wants to make the Turtles themselves from another planet. That really doesn't sit right with me. Wherever the ooze itself comes from is one thing, but the Turtles themselves are from Earth! Heck, if he's really planning on making the Turtles aliens, then there probably won't even be any ooze. :(

Ahaha! ninja turtles, I was a TMNT fan before being a Sonic fan. and just like you, I grew up with their 4kids style, and those konami games, haha I remember me, my brother and two of my cousins playing that game, and called each other by turtles' names even in real life, I was Donatello because umm.. well, you know how he is right? :tmnt4:
