TMNT 2019

Cat's out of the bag!!! IDW TMNT has a new Turtle: JENNIKA! I did the first concept art for her back in 2017, so I've been keeping it a secret all this time! I guess DA has to add a yellow-masked Turtle emoji now.

This picture you've done of the Ninja Turtles from the IDW Comics series looks very nice and cool for sure. :D

Maybe you should try asking playmates to merchandise the idw Turtles since Rise TMNT is bombing

out of curiosity if venus were to be made canon what would origin be

would she originally be a human king fu stylist as jennika was a human ninja

So very, very cool....

This makes me wish Venus was canon so she could join them and they’d have another female turtle in the group.

That would be cool!

Is your style on the turtles based somewhat of Nickelodeon's 2012 cartoon?
mooncalfe's avatar
Not really! I was drawing Turtles in a similar way long before the 2012 show, here's one from 2002, for example:
old 2002 TMNT #2 by mooncalfe

Although in some of my IDW work, I was incorporating elements from the show (like Donatello being taller than the others), but not so much anymore.

I see

Then again from their earliest appearences the turtles were known for not being too tall

Where did Jennika came from?
merdicano's avatar
Thanks, quite an interesting backstory, but damn, TMNT nowadays has become sorta violent you know
mooncalfe's avatar
It was WAY more violent in the original comics!!
merdicano's avatar
Oh yes, of course, I'm fully aware of that
maxvision92's avatar
"Become"? The comics have pretty much always been pretty violent. It's the cartoons that are light and kid-friendly.
merdicano's avatar
I wonder why there hasn't been any attempt in making a dark and grounded TMNT cartoon like these comics, hmm, who knows someday when that might happen
