I decided to go a bit different with Michelangelo, I based his design off of a painted turtle species. I liked the idea of him being somewhat different than his three brothers because his personality is a bit more outgoing and energetic. I think it fits him best. In a side story in Volume 2, it's revealed at an early age that Michelangelo was a talented artist. Without getting too literal with the painted turtle concept, I still enjoyed giving him a bit of a louder design than the other 3. Michelangelo was my first favorite when I was a kid.

TMNT: 4 & 5
Here's my 4th piece for my TMNT series, Donatello. I went with the blue for an electrical effect to subtly imply his affiliation with inventing stuff. I actually had this see-through computer panel in front of him with some tech programming type going on, but I was too torn with it and it didn't really look right so I scrapped it. If it wasn't so up close, I'd probably have kept it. Oh well ;)
