The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were an ‘80s and early ‘90s pop culture phenomenon, so it comes as no surprise that this generation of illustrators and graphic designers are highly inspired by the "heroes in a half shell." As such, many talented individuals have harnessed their honed skills to either pay tribute to or reinterpret the pizza-loving crime fighters in their distinct visual styles. Gathered here are some of the best Ninja Turtles renderings from every corner of the Internet.
Deviating from the sewer dwellers’ cartoon roots, some artists have decided to depict the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in an ultra-realistic manner, adorned with scales, battle scars and anatomy resembling real-life turtles. Other artists have chosen to hyperbolize the characters’ fun-loving side and have drawn them as obese college students too plump to prevent crime.
