TMNT is cooler than MOTU 08-11-2014 01:16 PM

Concept Art
Thought this would be a good spot to post any concept art from the movie that was found. Personally, i love seeing the "what could've been" aspects of movies.

While not super-different from what we ended up with onscreen, I think these designs are much more palatable. The faces are much more reminiscent of the classic design and they athletic and intimidating without being over-the-top Hulks with shells.

Not crazy about Leo's beak/eyes, but otherwise I actually dig these.

I definitely liked Leo with the sandals more than full boots.

I assume this is the infamous Colonel Schrader:

There's more at the link. I hope there's more coming. I love concept art for films.

Cool post! I noticed that the Raph concept in the Visual Guide was dated around the same time as the Blue Door script. It seems like the basic design of the turtles didn't deviate much since then.

Has there been any word on an "art of" book for the new movie?

THANK GOD we didn't get that **** for Shredder. OMG that is terrible

SwiftNinjaFox 08-11-2014 05:38 PM

Man, I actually wish they had gone with those body types more. They have the write athletic/martial arts build to me.

Xiewin 08-11-2014 05:39 PM

meh..I prefer the designs we already have.

SwiftNinjaFox 08-11-2014 05:43 PM

Prefer the Teenage Mutant Pro-Wrestling Turtles? :3

Slade 08-11-2014 05:48 PM

Guess they'd always been dead set on the clothes...

They eyes are horrible, but the size doesn't seem terrible. Can't really tell though.

Yep, I love the designs.

zodiac brave 08-11-2014 07:46 PM

the used designs have definitely grown on me, but i do like the leaner, more slender looks. even with all the accesories and extra crap.

and yeah...that shredder is facepalmingly stupid. like, really...there IS something worse than the armor design used on film.

More concept art for TMNT 2014 unvieled

Interesting design. Wonder if this may have been for what was that blue door script at one point.

Anton Chigurh 08-23-2014 03:35 PM

oh good that's horrible, interesting but horrible for tmnt..

can't wait for ppl to state that these are better the the ones in the movie lol

Jester 08-23-2014 03:37 PM

More likely it'll be:
"And I thought the ones we got were bad....."

gotta agree with this statement. These look down right horrible. makes you thankful for what we ended up with.

IndigoErth 08-23-2014 03:45 PM

Uh. Well. o.O

I suppose those who want a more animal-like TMNT might go for that a little more. If they also like them looking like aliens.

Annnd... just like that, as if by some strange movie magic, the guys we ended up with are a heck of a lot cuter by comparison.

Edit: Those feet... did they accidentally start looking at deer feet?

Bob 08-23-2014 03:57 PM

These are awful. Interesting as other alien creatures, but not for the TMNT. There's virtually no character whatsoever in the faces.

Luigiperps 08-23-2014 04:01 PM

They look more like salamanders than turtles

Slade 08-23-2014 04:04 PM

Donatello19 08-23-2014 04:05 PM

They don't even look like turtles...
