    hi guy's

    I'm looking to start my next big project sculpting a full sized turtle from the first film for the next uk prop party

    my biggest problem is other than screen grabs their really isn't that much promo stuff that shows good quality pictures of them

    if any one can help with some good reference material it would be very much appreciated :)

    thanks

    I have a promo packet that has some decent pics in it, if you wanna pm me your email address. They are black and white so they should be good pics to use for references. Most of the shots are of mikey, but theres a couple of good ones in there. Also if you haven't already look up the technodrome forum. They have a thread that is dedicated to the movies which has tons of screen grabs and pictures of screen used items.

    Hope this helps, I love the turtles and can't wait to see this.

    I have a few pictures - not great, but not bad either - I found around the net and at this site, which seems to be down now: www.tmntmoviesite.com/

    Always liked THIS pose!

    Not really better quality, but here's the ones I have. Hope it's okay to post them here. Found most of them at the TMNT Movie site that no longer seems to be accessible. Rest was found online at various locations I haven't kept track of.

    thank you so much mate they are great :)
    you've actually made me now make up my mind with the pose for this project

    it was a toss up between Raph and Mikey but looking at all the images they are both almost the same hight so the body can be the same and they both seem to pose with their arms folded a lot so that the pose I'm going to go with :)

    I'll do Raph first and then once he is finished I'll do a Mikey head sculpt and then pop that on another body and just change the belt :)

    thanks again ;)

    Can't wait to see you get started on this, all your work is amazing. I'm planning on going down to the craft store myself this Monday to pick up 200 pds. of water based clay to start sculpting pieces for a TMNT costume. The character is pretty simple to sculpt, the only thing that I'll be stuck on is getting the right texture for the skin.
    You know I actually wonder where all the original suits are, since they were done out of latex I'm sure they've broken down quite a bit, but it would still be nice to see where they've gone.

    Oh, Mikey is by far the smallest of them all. Leo and Don appear to be the same height, with Raph being the tallest. Pretty much as described in the comics.

    Oh... and you're welcome! .)

    At one point there was a restoration of a Donatello or Leo suit from the first movie on here. I think it was done by Tom Spina. I did a search but couldn't find it. Maybe if someone has his contact info, you can fire him an email and see if he has any photos.
