    Default TMNT: A Darker Version

    Hi everyone, I wanted to do a turtle that was a little older and a little meaner. I liked the movie version but I really wanted to see a more adult version. I remember owning a couple of the old black and white comics and could have sworn there was blood and characters getting slashed by swords in those books. Or maybe that was my own imagination as a kid. It was so long ago I can't remember.

    Thanks Logick, I wasn't sure about the old turtles book having blood and stuff in them. I think I might surf the net and see if any of them are for sale. I'd like to have a couple for the nostalgia of them.
    Oh I just saw your aliean head you did, it looks really good. Love the details. I'm going to start ZB3 tonight, still trying to figure out what to model.
    Anyway, thanks again.

    Big fan of the original comics and some of the more serious derivative designs.

    Very cool work. My main critique would be that for turtles, the shell looks a little tacked on... might be nice to incorporate it (in a cool fashion) around the entire torso.

    PS. You can read the first few original series comics at the official website...here's a direct link (scroll down):

    Zerodean: I just check out the very first black and white issue on that site you told me about. Man that takes me back. So cool!!!! Thanks a bunch. Going to read the other ones soon. About the model, I did the shell as a seperate part so that I could get more detail in the model but I really agree with you. It does look like the shell is just slapped on. Thats something I want to fix. Thanks for the advice.


    MattSilverstein: Yeah I think the model could use more contrast. Do you think maybe each turtle should have it's own variation of the shade too? I think someone had mentioned that at CGTalk. I was thinking that'd be a cool idea. Thanks for the advice Matt.

    Default don't hit those on the road.

    Congrats on making the coolest possible ninja turtles i've seen in a long time. Though something about raphs shoulder is driving my eyes crazy. it reminds me of a misplaced chunk of plastic on one of my old action figures. Great Job.

    Great "butch-we-didnt-arrive-with-the-pc-parade" look on those turtles.

    Just once I would like to see someone give each of the Turtles a different body shape. Everyone always makes them pretty much identical just with different weapons (and sometimes the cartoon colored masks).

    The original turtles all had red masks.
