Iron Demon/Feudal Utrom_Design by Santolouco Iron Demon/Feudal Utrom_Design by Santolouco
This is something I've been wanting to share for a long time. Now that all four issues of Secret History of the Foot Clan are out it can be finally done.

Feudal Utrom AKA Iron Demon concept design. Well I think my intention here is pretty obvious. When the concept of the Iron Demon came up in the first drafts, me and Bobby (Curnow, TMNT editor) agreed it should look like a previous, antique version of the exoskeleton Krang is using on the ongoing title. But once I got to draw it I just couldn't help to make a homage to the classic - and silly - 80's cartoon Krang's robotic bodysuit. The challenge to make that stupid thing to look cool and badass was irresistible to me. Gladly everyone bought the idea and apparently readers are pleased as well. :D

I know most of you people are wondering who this Utrom is. Although in the backstage we have been calling him Krang all along - just because it's easier this way - I must state that this could be any other Utrom, really. The mystery behind this character's intentions is something IDW wants to save for future arcs. So we will have to hold that question for a while, ok?

That is insane! I'm digging this take on the robot, and Krang in green fluid with the glowing eyes makes the character much more intimidating.

SHotFC was awesome, really looking forward to your issues. Just so you know, when I saw this I nearly shat myself. Great nod to the original toon, without being heavy handed.
