¡Qué lindas están! ( How cute they are!) As tartarugas são muito lindas. Parabéns! Desculpe, meu português não é bom, estou apreendendo. I love your drawing and the boys look like the way they should be: teens. They look tough and sweet at the same time.

i noticed that Mikey has sky-blue eyes, just like he has in the 2007 and 2014 movies and in the current Nickelodeon series. Leo has hazel eyes, instead of the blue ones that he has in the current series. Leo looks better in your version, because his blue eyes get lost in the show because of his blue mask; Raph has green-yellow eyes, and Donnie got his usual light brown eyes; I think if you put blue-violet eyes ( like the ones of actress Elizabeth " Liz" Taylor) on Donnie would not be bad, either. He would still look sweet. He is my favorite, but I love his siblings, too. To be honest, if I could do it, I would hug and kiss those cute boys ( TMNT) :)

I'm very curious about what this is for. I did see the pencils for these on your tumblr. For now I got it saved on my phone as a kinda CD cover image for my TMNT music playlist cuz it looks like an awesome Gorillaz style album cover. LOL!

Awesome! I'm curious, though, what led you to change the bandana shapes from the way they were in the Secret History of the Foot Clan? For instance, Leo's bandana was much more stylized and looked more aggressive compared to his newer "straight across" look. Just curious.

Thanks man!

There's a couple of reasons why I've changed that.
I think primarily is a simple evolution of the work. It's been almost two years from Secret History now, so it's natural that some fine tuning happen on the characters designs in general.
These adjustments has also something to do with personal taste too, you know? At one point (I believe after Dark Leo entered) I started to enjoy more my drawings of Leo's face, for example,
when I drew him with a more traditional bandana.And that's the main reason for the change.
The second but not less important, is the fact that I do pay a lot of attention to what fans are saying and how they are feeling about my work. Specially in this case, since TMNT it's such a beloved franchise.
The different bandanas was something that really divided fans opinions. Some loved and some hated. Although I consider my own opinion as a Turtles fan above all, I can't really ignore that.
I know I can't please everybody and I've learned to deal with the fact that some people will dislike my approach on the characters and that's ok. BUT every now and then I will agree with some criticisms
and when that happens I try to improve, not only to please fans but also to please my personal need to become a better artist.

In short, it was a personal design choice in the search of a better look, that took in consideration fan's opinions. Makes any sense?

Absolutely makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up. I've always loved to draw (not professionally, just for fun), but I'm still finding my own style, so I was curious how your process changes. Keep up the awesome work! You have done an incredible job with TMNT, and I can't wait to read the next issue!
