TMNT movie concepts by DavidRapozaArt TMNT movie concepts by DavidRapozaArt
Michael Bay asked me to do some new designs to spice up a seemingly dead in the water franchise. This means adding white guys, black guys and removing all things japanese(oriental, in case you don't understand racism). Forget what you knew about the functioning franchise.

T-U-R-T-L-E POWER.

Haha! Fantastic! I can't begin to describe how much I detest the character designs for the Michael Bay TMNT film. Why do they have to look so hideous? I think it's mainly the nose and top lip part of the turtles' faces that's so off-putting. Shredder looks ridiculous, too, but then it's exactly what I would expect from Bay the idiot. I've only seen the trailer where he's pretty much a silhouette, so I didn't realise they'd changed his ethnicity, as well. It's worse than I thought!

Well, he's already ruined Transformers for me, and now TMNT. If he can just wreck Ghostbusters, Thundercats and the Masters of the Universe, then that just about completes the list of everything I loved as a kid. It's almost like he hates me and everyone the same age as me.

if you want to see something REALLY bad...look at "Mutant Turtles: Choujin Densetsu-hen"

Japan had one job...they fucked up so bad...it's like transformers raped TMNT and had kids...to advertise crap products...

While this pic is hilarious, I disagree with both you and David; I love the new and realistic take on the new move turtles. I real life, teens use their clothes/attire to express themselves/view/personality and having the turtles wear what they're wearing makes sense (tho, Don's attire is pretty clunky). With the whole nostrils thing....hello people, turtles in real life have nostrils! So if this is a realistic take on the TMNT, then the nostrils make sense. Now for the lips, well they're humanoid turtles so its not surprising that there's a couple of them with them; besides, I think they work with the designs of Raph and Mikey. In term of their size, I agree that they're kinda too swole and big, and I'm thinking that only Raph should've been made like that to make him the tank of the group (while fits his personality). I like Fichtner, but there's honestly no reason to not have the Shredder be Asian; while we'd all prefer a Japanese actor, but honestly any good Asian actor would do.

Now, I don't have high hopes for the movie but if there's anything not to bash it's the designs of the characters.

Well yes and no, its mostly I am working on becoming a Graphic Designer, and so I have a greater appreciation for Fonts, and how much which one is used can affect the message you wish to send. Its also making sure that said message can even be read. And while the font he used is nice, and has all kinds of very cool decorative serifs, the kerning that was used causes a lot of overlap making it harder to read, thus decreasing legibility.
