[Rise of the TMNT] Who has your favorite (or least favorite) character design?

As I've examined all of the artwork that have been unveiled so far, I've noticed that I can't really decide which character has, in my opinion, the best overall character design, as they all have certain aspects that look visually unappealing, at least to me.

However, out of all the characters, the character with my least favorite design is ...

Um ... WHAT?!


I agree with the part in bold. Leo's red marks (above his eyes, yet under his mask) make him look mysteriously mischievous. He looks like someone who's out to do heinous deeds.

That's somewhat ... disturbing, at least to me. o_o

Maybe it's because of his head shape (pointy on the top, angled at the bottom), but I find Leonardo's overall facial structure to be extremely jarring to look at. He has the face of a creepy jester/ clown. (Although, his default expression [a smirk] may be the underlying cause of that.) It ... just doesn't look pleasant to me. I'm sorry.

Hopefully, it'll get rounded out in the future.



Sorry. I just don't like his design.

In your opinion, who has your favorite (or least favorite) character design?

Discuss your thoughts and opinions below.

In order

Favourite design is Mikey, he just looks a mix of 2k3 Mikey and Nick Mikey.

Then it's

April
Leo
Raph
Donnie

Least favourite design is Splinter.

Stop with the "weak nerd turtle with glasses" crap.

But...Don's not wearing glasses. He has goggles, but those are the same things 2k3 Don wore in a lot of episodes.

Leo
Mikey
Raph
Donnie.

I like them all, except for Donnie. Why is his head shaped like a box? And he has too much tech, goggles are fine but why make his entire shell electronic?

And Raphael would be higher on this list if it wasn't for his enormous size. He's bigger than all his brothers combined.

Worst... Splinter is a given. (Christ what the heck happened there. Is this the Yoshi who was mutated with a mix of rat and candle wax? He mutated then immediately half melted?)

No best... others are just some improvement over Splinter to some degree or another.

Not sure whose look I like best. There are new qualities about each that appeal to me. Maybe I lean ever so slightly in Raph's favor? I can't say for sure.

Donnie is definitely the worst, for me. Long dome, eyebrows, tech-junk, bleh. I really like the others, though!

If you mean overall rather than just between the 4 turtles, April either ties with or surpasses Donnie. Mostly for her hair/glasses, which I wish they'd have picked different styles for, & the fact she's bat-wielding now (that counts as part of the design in my book).

My most to least favourites are:

Raph
Mikey/Donnie (tied)
Splinter
April
Leonardo

I don't think Leos design is bad by any means, but I agree that he is a bit too lanky/angular looking and the combination of his red marks and creepy expression doesn't help things.

Rise Raph I absolutely love. His design and voice keep on reminding me of Maui from Moana for some strange reason

Mikey looks pretty good from certain angles, but Raph probably has my favorite overall design.

Whoever decided that design for Donnie needs to be slapped at least twice. All the tech bull all over his back didn't look good at all in Bayturtles, why would it look good now? And the swollen head... just, what a disaster.

Mikey is my most liked design.
Splinter is the least, the angry expression he was pulling on that image didn't help him, will have to see a calmer face.

As for comments I've seen on Donnie's head shape, I do look at it and think it's missing a bolt, sorry, I'm not trying to troll, but that comes to mind when I look at the shape.

I like Donatello's outfit, but there is something very wrong with his face.

Mikey's design is the least offensive?

And April is fine.

I really have no problem with Donatello tbh, besides his huge eyebrows he has for some reason. My favorite is Leo and my least favorite is Splinter, but I'm sure even his design will grow on me after we see him in action.

Raph, Donnie and Mikey look the worst. They look like they belong in a minimates spin-off

Leo, Mike and Don all look fine to me. Raph is a little too big for my taste but I might get used to it as I see him in motion. Splinter is the worst though.

After seeing the teaser a few more times, I actually really like all of them, with Raph and Leo being my favorites.

I think Mike's design is probably the best with Leo coming second.

Raph looks too big to me in comparison to the others, and like others have said Donnie has a very square head.

Splinter looks like someone stood on him, and the top knot is awful. I'm kind of sad really, cause he's my favourite. I don't get why it's hard to make him look decent

2003 was the ultimate for me, but I didn't mind the 2012 look either. Hopefully they'll grow on me...

I've only seen the 1st episode but I'm not sure who i hate more yet, april or splinter.

So far I think april is winning that, but probably because splitner only got 30 seconds of screen time so far while black april (blapril?) was crammed down my throat
