So you think you're real brave huh? You think you're a tough guy or what? Well I'm about to scare the living daylights out of you. You're probably thinking this is some type of horror thing, or maybe a new scary movie trailer, or you just used common sense and looked at the title and the image right above this text. That would have been pretty resourceful of you.
Well you're all wrong (except for that last option)! These scary images are actually more rejected concept art from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie! Don't get us wrong, Anthony Francisco is a brilliant concept artist, but these are f*cking terrifying. Are you ready? I'm not:
BOOM! Right?! How scary is that? They're very alien-ish looking. If that doesn't freak you out look at them from closeup.
Why are they so slippery looking? I've seen many (three) turtles in my day, and trust me when I say; unless they're covered in lube, they don't look like they're covered in lube.
Notice how, in the top left image, the Turtles have been given guns in addition to their normal weapons? Seems a bit extreme...
Their bodies are so long and lean. It's like the gang went on that Master Cleanse diet but still managed to hit the gym for arm day. Aside from that, this sketch is really well done. I can't stop staring at his shell.
The boys of [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles](movie:323027) are in tatters. Actually, I get this one. Considering they grew up in a sewer, it makes sense that they'd be wearing rags.
Well, there's your daily dose of icky. This concept art is really great, but I think it was a bit too far from what we're used to. If you made it through this post, then it's official, you are far braver than I ever was. Granted, that's a pretty low bar, but still, good on you!
