In June of 2011, I got lucky and landed a dream job- Character Designer on the Nickelodeon reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s one of the most exciting, yet the most challenging job I’ve ever had. For real. It’s pretty hard. Two and a half years and a load of designs later, I’m still there and still getting my butt kicked. The ultra talented TMNT crew at Nick is constantly raising the bar, thus keeping me on my toes every step of the way. To help with this, I thought it would be a fun idea to draw the characters I was assigned in my own style and hopefully become familiar with the subject before moving on with the character turns. I did a couple Weekend Sketch style character sheets for these dudes before realizing that time is of the essence, and I really need to get moving on the actual turns.

These pages were fun. I should make these retroactively, for all the fun characters I’ve designed since these. Trust me, there’s a lot of fun creatures showing up in the coming seasons.
These characters are from season 01. The show is currently airing its second season, with new episodes to return February 2nd 2014. 11:00 am (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Check your local listings!
