TMNT gijinka - NINJABOYS by bluestraggler TMNT gijinka - NINJABOYS by bluestraggler
This is where I prove my rightful self-appointed title of gijinkaphile. My childhood love for the turtles which had been buried in the recesses of my memory for years was reignited after the amazing CGI movie. It was full of fun and great lines and beautiful rendering and sexy choreography and overall FUCKING WIN.

My headlong crash into turtles art began when I saw this by ~bunnyluz, which explains why they're, y'know, human to begin with. (Bascially I cheated cuz I can only draw humans.)

So, a breakdown of the turtleboys:

Leonardo, Mister Perfect, with the Perfect (read: sleek, boring) hair and the Perfectly shaped eyebrows and Perfect facial structure. I also unwittingly made him the palest one of the 4.

Raphael, West Side Story guy. XD Tried to make him all chiseled-like and renegade-esque. With biker jacket and the whole shebang. Oh and of course, the earring of Ambiguously Gay.

Mikey, Happy Skater Kid. With the standard surfer look: sun-bleached highlights, wavy hair, reddish tan, baby blues XD And a BIG SMILE.

Donny, Pale... MMORPG Nerd. (I love him I really do ;A; ) I had actually done this last, and it really shows. >__>;; There are a whole bunch of odd/off things and it just... uuurgh. Donny's my favorite and I went and wrecked him. T__T Having given Mikey curly locks I decided to give Donny wavy but slightly more subdued hair. In need of cutting. But he doesn't care. XD

More coming. Ohhh yeah.

These are just awesome, I love your style, they match perfectly the way I imagine my human turtle boys!! :love: I just have to ask if you have ever heard of an old TV/Movie show called "How The West Was Won" or "Macahan"? Because for some reason the youngest brother in the Macahan family, named Josh (played by William Kirby Cullen), looks very similar to your human-verison Mikey :D. Probably just coincidence, just thought it was funny and amazingly cute!! :heart:

so awesome, but how would you design their ninja uniforms?
Darksgirl120 Featured By Owner May 21, 2012
This style is amazing and it totally fits for them, specially Mikey *huggles the guy* (seriously, I can't see Mikey with Blonde hair that most people draw him as it just doesn't seem to work for me o.o; ) haha and I can totally see Don with the gadget glasses as he works at his workbench xD now the only question is...what will Splinter look like o.o

Don't worry about it, Donny looks epic and he reminds me of well, me. ^_^ Hair needs to be cut and a big MMORPG nerd with pale skin. ^_^ The others are cool too.
