Just trying to get some concept sketches done for my next sculpture project. As you can tell it's my take on the TMNT franchise. I'll be posting a rearview as soon as i get it scanned in. Trying to go for a more streamlined version of the turtles (no more bulky solid turtle shells). Instead, i've tried to design in more flexibily/agility by giving him a more "armor-plated skin" style. Also tried to rid the necessity of the elbow/knee pads by working them into the overall design. Anyway, the style may change once i start actually sculpting, but i figured this was a good starting point.
hm. no turtles, mate. stick to characters that arent already sculpted everywhere. much more interesting to look at. or create ur own characters, u sure have good ideas.
Can't wait to see this come into fruition!!!
Excellent Start EJ! I like the face as it has a more realistic turtle-like appearance. A black cloth wrapped may obscure the details, but I always though the ninja turtles in black would look neat and more ninja-esque...but I guess the foot had more of that look. White maybe?. The segmented skin is a cool idea, but starts to look like an endoskeleton(at least in black and white anyways). Couldn't you just taxidermy four box turtles and a Rat then dress'em up? ^_^ Like that Dinner for Schmucks movie? Keep going amigo!
This would look great as a real armor plated costume dude. If you need this made let me know.
