ThunDerian's TMNT customs

I make a lot of statues of cartoon & movie characters, as well as diorama's and scenery. Of course I tried my hand at some TMNT stuff!

This is a sewer display piece I've started working on recently. It doesnt look like much now, but I think it's gonna be good It's sculpted out of epoxy, on top of a base structure made of polystyrene.



and with Donnie for scale:



More to come!

Thanks! Well, I'm kinda winging it Bit of a mix betwee the 1990 movie and the animated series, maybe?

I made this Utrom Shredder a couple years ago. Based on his look in Turtles Forever. Sculpted from epox, aprox. 5 inches tall. I didnt have time to give it a proper finish as it was for a competition and I almost didnt make the dealine. It isnt perfect but I still like the way he turned out.



Thanks for looking! More to come!

I was going to say that it reminded me of the title card shot at the beginning of some of the OT episodes.

Awesome work! The sewer diorama is especially impressive. & your Krang looks like it was influenced by AC Farley's work-

I love everything in this thread.

The diorama reminds me of the bases that came with the Angel figures from Moore Action Collectibles back in the day.

So, after a bit of a break due to moving house and studio, I'm at work once again. I've been working on a statue/bust called "Foot Stinks". Here is the almost finished, unpainted piece



BTW I didnt design it to be any particulair Turtle, the bandana will be red and the finished piece will have another belt across the chest.
Sneak peak at the finished piece:



To be continued...

Thanks, man! It's a house brand from FormX, an Arts Supply company located in Amsterdam and Barcelona. It's called "Kneedpox". I believe it's a lot like Aves.

Yeah, these are really beautiful. You'd be perfect for making scenery for stop motion films. Actually, that would be pretty neat to see and I'm not referring to just using existing TMNT figures. Someone needs to make a stop motion TMNT web series using newly created stop motion puppets.
