I think it’s refrehing that a big size character like Raph becomes a main focus/leader.

It’s pretty rare because normally big characters like Hulk, Chewbacca, Rubeus Hagrid and such are treated like side characters.

Here comes Raph, up front and centre, enormous and all, leading the pack.

For some reason, Leonardo reminds me of Glenn Quagmire.

I ... don't think that's a good thing.

You just made me imagining Leo coming up to the surface and hooking up with prostitute whores.

Giggity.

Jeez. I didn't mean literally.

I just meant that his head shape reminded me of Quagmire's head.

Still growing on liking the designs but I really don't like the over abundant crap on Don's back.

Speaking of which:

It looks like, depending on the situation, Donnie will don different battle shells.

I'm sure they tried giving him the same body structure as his brothers during early concept art but it didn't work out in the end. For a character like Raph, I can see why they went this route.

Ugh.

Spoiler:


Just ... UGH ...!!!

Spoiler:


I swear, every time I look at Leonardo, he just seems more ... uncanny to look at.

Why did Mr.Suriano make him like this?

My only somewhat favorite shot of him so far would be this one...



Less asshat-ish and something akin to a slight dash of 2003-ish-ness.

Leo looks fine to me....In fact I feel he's one of the better looking designs between the turtles. Though all of them have something I like about them.

Same, the artstyle and character designs both look incredible in my opinion.

If the Turtles all looked like Leo I'd be fine, Leo has the best design I'd say. Mikey's is alright too. I just wish Raph was smaller and Don is ok.

The way they smile with their teeth hanging out is weird though.

Forgive me, those movies kind of burned out most of my lifetime supply of sympathy for the "I'm sad people don't like a thing I like" angle. Who cares if not everyone agrees.



I don't entirely hate them, it could have been worse I suppose, but I've never much liked jarring, angular, pointy designs in most cases, and that includes when the 2003 series started doing it in the late seasons; albeit less extreme, but likewise still feels rather cheap compared to the early seasons.

As far as any "hate" I have for this goes... Maybe 5% is to the designs really. 10% to the animation style and what they do with those designs that can help make it or break it. 85% is to screwing with their personalities and who'd they'd become over their 34 years of existence, which isn't helping me feel any love for the rest of it. (It bums me out that they felt the need to change Leo like that, like who he normally is just isn't interesting enough for inclusion -- I mean screw those who appreciate and/or relate to his kind of personality and who he is as a character. I suppose in some regard I'm insulted for both him and as a viewer.)

They didn't even really change Leo's personality. He's just younger and less mature, as are all the other turtles. I'm sure once he eventually becomes leader in the show he'll be more like classic Leonardo personality-wise.

I think there's a big difference between people not liking a thing, and those who go out of their way to Spew their Haterade.

You give a nuanced account of how the line art doesn't work for you and how the characterization isn't to your taste.

That's way different than calling someone's intelligence into question, telling them they're not Real Fans, or otherwise putting on a show of gnashing and wailing.

And while I can't speak for Powder, that's the kind of histrionic crap his sentiment seems to me to speak to.
