I have a feeling that some identical twins might recognize themselves in this comic. It’s always fun to trick your parents, right? Until you realize that your own mom or dad doesn’t see what makes you unique from your sibling…
This comic started out as a simple desire to draw Nickelodeon’s turtles in the red bandanas they had in the original comic books. As I understand it, they were only granted their “designated colors” in the 87-show because they were too hard to tell apart. And no matter what version, you’ve always been more or less dependable on their colors in order to make sure of which turtle is which.
But thanks to the 2012 incarnation, you can now easily do that without looking at their bandanas! Eye colors, freckles, chipped plastron… Even their silhouettes are distinct from each other. And this is one of the reasons why I find this show so interesting.
I wanted their reactions at the end to kinda summon up their characters: Donnie is concerned about Splinter’s apparently declining vision, Leo is deeply ashamed for having exposed his highly respected master’s embarrassing weakness, Raph (the one and only) is horrified over the fact that Splinter couldn’t single him out from his less amazing brothers, and Mikey… Well, daddy didn’t recognize him.

I make no monetary gain from this artwork. This drawing is only made out of appreciation and love for the characters it depictures.
Raph: Lighting-Bolt scar on shell
Donnie: Missing Tooth
Leo: ... doesn’t really have any clear things 😅
