Yet more proof that they went into this thing completely wrong-headed from square one. Yikes.

Jeez, how can there be pitch designs that looks worse then what we got. They barely look like humanoid turtles, and more like creatures kinda resembling turtles...

There's some interesting ideas in the 2D art with their heads, but the Zbrush images completely no sell it. Their proportions are weird, and they aren't't very "turtle semi-realism" with those torsos.

That was... awful.
Like, the worst thing I've ever seen awful. Who thought that was a good idea? At ALL?! Good thing it wasn't approved. That would've been terrible.

Well it's bad but it's not as creepy as the "human faces on turtles" look they went with.

I donno, the test render invokes some similar issues. Now imagine Noel Fisher's eyes and mouth on it while saying. "She's so hot, I can feel my shell tighten."

Although... I could kinda see these working as enemy alien turtle-like beings our Turtles are trying to save the world from in a sequel. (Go ahead, name one Slash. lol) Earth Turtles will kick your shells.

This was what the artist pitched but ultimately not considered at all by the producers, even the artist didn't land the job.

Good.

More concept art for TMNT 2014 unvieled
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit...news/?a=106495

Interesting design. Wonder if this may have been for what was that blue door script at one point.
Wow, Those designs look more Alien then Turtles, Glad they didn't use these.

Its like the artist tried to incorporate a more Turtle like design, Glad they went with the more humanoid approach.

Yeah, These rejected design look more like Turtles, The problem is, They aren't pleasant to look at. I'm glad they stayed with the traditional designs and making them more humanoid.

I have no problem with the faces, they're ugly because they're mutated Turtles, the more I look at it the more I want those faces, they actually look like real Turtles.

Interesting, to say the least. There is some potential in there, somewhere, but wow, quite the departure.

The designs we have now aren't pleasant to look at.

I'd give these designs credit for actually taking a genuine risk of doing something truly different even though it's not to my taste rather than awkwardly trying to create cute turtles which still look huge and badass and dressed in gear designed to sell toys.
