Doodles in a Half Shell by MatthewRHumphreys Doodles in a Half Shell by MatthewRHumphreys
Out drawing with friends tonight and doodled up some turtles. Mostly based on the new Nickelodeon TMNT show, but with :iconmooncalfe:'s gal Artemisia flirting with Donnie.

i still cant believe the amount of good show remakes we been getting. like Tranformers Prime, Thundercats, and now the TMNT. i figure that the kids who grew up no them finally got working on them , and show then how its done!

Ya know they get a lot of hate for adding the third toe, but personally I love that. It never made sense to me as a kid that they had 3 digits on their hands, but only two on their feet.

Grew up with the Turtles. Raph was always my favorite & you draw him very well. Great job on the sketches!

Outstanding work with the new TMNT sir. Frankly, the excellence of this reminds me why I'm not a fan of the new CG-Gimmick that seems to be overtaking *every* new animated series. Don't get me wrong, the new show doesn't look terrible, but I will take classic hand-drawn animation over waxy CG any day of the week. The Turtles might look fine, but human characters always suffer.

Take, for instance, April. Perhaps my favorite take on the character -yes, more so then the comics or the original 80's show- her design is brilliant for the spunky modern teenager approach. However, there are times when she looks like a doll who's talking. Had they gone with the animation approach still being used in, say, Legend of Korra or Young Justice, the show would be damn near perfect.

Only other thing they would have to tweak would be the writers adding more April in. I'm not sure what's going on, exactly, but O'Neil was a key part of every moment with the Turtles both in the comics and the 80's series. With this show? She's had a total of, perhaps, two minutes worth of screen time.

I've never understood why they didn't have her become a hacker -with Anonymous and other Hackers being so proliferate in the media today- as she was in the comics. As such they could have, basically, served as the Turtle's "Oracle" like character -Batman reference for those who don't get it- feeding them information on crimes and problems around the city. Donnie would remain the "Tech Geek" of the group and it would also add to the sudo-romance aspect between the two.

(*Sigh*) But I digress. Brilliant art, as always sir. Hope you're inspired to do more.

Ah, its about TNMTwentyTwelve got some fresh fan art. I just wish the actual show gave us more April, because your interpratation with her flashlight and Scooby-Doo Mystery Solving Eyes just looks so cute.
