Hi guys,

My father and I have custom painted a set of the Nick TMNT Turtles and currently put them up on eBay. We have seen people do custom paint jobs and were not happy with the level of artistic license. We added a few firsts ever in our paint job. The weapons are a dark red with gold trim. Michelangelo's weapon has a dark chain instead of shiny silver chain. Also we added a custom wash to the front and back shells and added black spots to resemble the original comic books. We have tried to leave no area untouched and hope you guys like them. :trazz:

They look cool, you did a good job, but not sure it's nice to bash other artists "custom paintobs", especially with your very first post. Many of those artists are members here and may take offense to that, myself included. Nice work though.

Threat,

Let me apologize if it sounded like I was bashing. It was not my intent, we merely saw all the custom paints out there and felt people didn't stray from previous designs, I was just trying to explain our approach was to create lines, spots, and other items which were not part of the original figure. I have seen your set and do think they are very good as well. Hope your figures get a good home!

Gotcha, and thanks, and likewise. I saw your set before you posted them here. I like the detail on the handles of the weapons with the red and gold.

Those figures really lend themselves to being customized. They are the best sculpts of the turtles I have seen in a long time. If only they had those when I was growing up.

I totally agree. Super articulation and the detail is great. I wonder that the new movie figs will look like and if they are on the same level as these.
