View Full Version : [Fan Art] I Need Help with my Project

Hey. I've been planning a very ambitious TMNT art project for a couple years now. I want to do a sort of "Through the Years" (I'm not sure what this type of art is called) type of project, a huge and ambitious one.
This would be a small example: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/67/97/2a/67972a09b4b389536d1485e2dcce1f0b.jpg
I've been doing some research and just adding to my ideas for it for over a couple years now. I want to have as close to all of the versions of TMNT that there are in this project and I want it to be long and impressive. Feel free to ask questions and suggest things to add.
What I'm really needing the most help for is narrowing down or adding to the list of TMNT versions that will be in it. The criteria the TMNT version has to meet is that it must:

Be visually different from other versions
Tell a separate story from other versions, to even a small extent
Be official or be a fan-work with enough of a significant effect on the franchise
(for fan-works, it must have a following, treat itself professionally and try to tell a coherent story rather than just do shipping, etc., and it must have a page on Turtlepedia proving its acknowledged as a popular/significant fan work (this criteria may change)

So as you can see, I'm letting fan-works be on this. I'm not including fan-fiction because it's generally forgotten quickly and is not a visual medium. Fan comics like Secrets of the Ooze and Gaiden are accepted, but most fan-works won't be taken. Feel free to suggest them, though.
The next post down will have a long list of every version of TMNT I've collected so far. Feel free to chisel away at it, add to it, fix some facts, ask questions, or give me some suggestions. Help is greatly needed on obscure versions. I will be labeling each version on the finished work with its title and year. I might eventually post practice drawings and other project-related art on this thread as I get ready to draw this.
I'm including comics, video games, cartoons, movies, specials, a few fan-works, and some miscellaneous ones. If they end up in the final product, I'll let those who own the fan-works know that I want to use their version in an art piece.
Also, this is a serious question I have. Since coming up with this concept, I've wanted every turtle displayed from every iteration to be Leonardo, since he is the leader and probably the most important turtle. Using one turtle would better illustrate how much TMNT changes each iteration, yet not using the other three turtles completely ignores the whole aspect of brotherhood and togetherness that is integral to the franchise. Let me hear your thoughts on this issue.
Did I explain this well or are you just very confused?

You need the Ultimate Visual History book, released in 2014.

OrangeNinja1987
10-04-2015, 07:21 PM
I have it, but I'm looking for even more versions than those that are in it. I want obscure versions, ones that have come out since that book was published, and even some fan-works.
This forum has many people with more TMNT knowledge than I have, and I hope they can contribute and help me improve my project.

You missing Turtle Tunes, Operation Blue Line, and the Christmas music video. ;)

In all seriousness, good project. :) I am unsure how you plan to, but why not combine each particular area together, like the movies in one section, the music in one, etc.?

Thanks so much! I'd never heard of the Blue Line video. That'll be an interesting turtle in the finished project. I'll add these 3 things to the list.

If Dark Leo IDW gets his own representation, you might should consider IDW TMNT "Vengeance" with Donny as Metalhead.

If Dark Leo IDW gets his own representation, you might should consider IDW TMNT "Vengeance" with Donny as Metalhead.

I'm not sure. I was questioning whether I should include City Fall Leo, because while I absolutely love the design, there's already a normal IDW turtle in the picture.
Also, when I came up with this concept I wanted to draw every turtle as Leonardo because it would show the extent of change between each version better, but now I'm considering using all of the turtles. If I just used Leo, then I wouldn't be able to put Donnie in it.
Anyway, does anyone know what I should do about this?

If you want another suggestion, I would recommend the Casey Jones fan film. Not entirely canon material, but I think it's worth an addition once you watch it. Robbie Rist is in the movie too as Michelangelo. :)

I'll have to watch it. I've seen it on my YouTube recommendations but never seriously considered watching it. It'll probably be on the project list within a few days, after I see it.

What year did the fan-made Casey Jones movie come out? It didn't originally come out on YouTube and the film's website didn't mention a date.
I'm also adding the small 2014 "Fight the Foot" Fan-made trailer. Raphael is the only one in it, though.
So I guess since both of these projects only use one turtle, I might be leaning towards alternating between the 4 turtles in the final project, rather than using Leonardo for all of them. What do you think?
Update: Should I add the Turtles' space suits from the Nick show? If I do, should I take out the Vision Quest ones? I don't want this whole project to be overrun by Nick show related versions, though it is cool.

Well, by limiting yourself to Leonardo, you keep the scale smaller and more manageable. So that sounds like a good idea, unless you wanna go all-out no-holds-barred balls-to-the-walls.

QUESTION:

Mirage and IDW have multiple artists, with drastically different styles... are you doing only one from each?

For Mirage, you have Kevin Eastman / Peter Laird working together (the earliest issues), Jim Lawson, and probably more.

For IDW, you have Dan Duncan, Ben Bates, Sophie Campbell, Cory Smith, Mateus S, etc...

I'm not sure yet if I'll count different artists' styles as separate versions. Probably not, because all those comic artists work in the same single comic book. While researching, there different styles have been a bit confusing because I need to pick a definitive one to represent the entire version.
However, I could draw some artist styles if they are very distinctive, appear often, and have had a significant effect on TMNT as a whole. Otherwise, including every artist's style will just be too much and too confusing. The styles themselves don't tell a story separate from the comic book as a whole.

So, I'm wondering if I should include the Wii game "Smash-Up" even if its designs are so similar to the 2007 movie.
Does anyone have info or pictures on the really obscure comic on the list - "The Last of the Viking Heroes"? I'm not even sure what it is. :tconfuse:
EDIT: Some Googling did get me some more information, but I'm still wondering what the comic itself looks like in the inside. There aren't a lot of pictures I can find of pages.
But what I could really use some help with are the TMNT manga and anime. Are the two manga I have listed around the mid-1990s really seperate or are they the same one? And should I count the two anime episodes as separate, seeing as the turtles do wear slightly different armor and clothes in each one?

I liked the designs on the special, but this piece should have been done with copic markers. Those would help imitate a lot of the versions' styles.

I hate to keep saying this, but I still really need help before I can start this project. I don't know and can't know every version of TMNT myself, but with help I can get this to be as good as it can be.
Please, if you can recognize any TMNT versions shown in the links, let me know. If you can answer any of my questions in previous posts, let me know. And if you can't, please spread word to those who can. :)

I'm really disappointed on how ignored this thread is, when I really still need help. Those who have posted on here have been tremendously helpful, but I still need more help. There are numerous things I'm still confused about and I know people on this forum could answer. I'm just wishing for some nice collaboration to help me improve this project. Don't be afraid to criticize, suggest, or critique. I'm literally just talking to myself on here for the past week.
Here's a list of some things I need help with:

Figuring out versions to add or delete
Suggesting versions to practice and critiquing art I post
Clearing up dates, such as with the Japanese mangas like Gaiden and Corocoro, which I am confused about, as well as on other versions.
Letting me know about prominent, professionally-handled fan works I could consider adding
Pictures and info on versions listed in red on the second post

Anyway, here is a new TMNT drawing I did. It's not any sort of practice for this project, just a fun doodle. http://orangeninja1987.deviantart.com/art/TMNT-Love-is-Blind-579549604

I have now added the 2 TMNT Magazines (1990 and 2013), if anyone cares.

Leonardo from Campbell's fan-comic Secrets of the Ooze, alongside Artemisia (you'll know who she is if you read SOTO)

I think I may allow a few cameos the turtles have made in other media into this project, as well. No more than five, though. You can suggest some because I don't know many, but they have to be well-known and can't be a parody version like ninja frogs or something. I'm already tentatively including the 1993(ish) cameo in Anamaniacs, with a speaking part by Rob Paulson.
Anyway, I still also need help with lots of other stuff, namely identifying all the versions of TMNT seen in the pictures of the multi-verse in Turtles Forever. Pictures are located in a previous thread post.

Sorry to post yet again, if anyone is even reading this, but I was wondering if anyone knew why there are so many unaired TMNT shows pitched around 2001?
Are they all for the same show?
Here are three videos I found and I can't tell if they are the same show just progressed and edited, before it was eventually dropped.

As of the moment, I have the last animation listed as a dropped pitch on the official inclusions on post #2, but I'm wondering if it's the same show as the WB one I've been hearing about while researching, which is also attributed to the second animatic.

So they're all separate attempts to bring TMNT back? I've found very little info on all of these.

IDW Leonardo, in Dan Duncan's style.
I choose to use Duncan's style (even though Campbell's is my favorite in IDW) because his was the original artwork for the comic. Campbell's art will be represented in the Secret of the Ooze fan-comic she's doing and Santalouco's art will be in the entry for City Fall and is the basis for the new videogame coming out. What are the other major artists for IDW?

Duncan, then Santalouco, and probably Corey Smith. He did Attack on Technodrome and part of Vengeance, plus the Krang/Shredder artist...

That's right.
