Anthony Francisco’s Ninja Turtle arguably has a more ‘pragmatic’ look

A more realistic version of a mutant turtle may have looked like the this. Certainly a convincing artwork done by Anthony Francisco (who had already shown his fantastical flair in the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie), the image was used to pitch a preliminary idea for the recent silver screen outing of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Suffice it to say, the producers didn’t go forward with this art direction, instead opting for a more traditional look of the famous ninja vigilantes. And perhaps, their decision ultimately made sense – as the more ‘purist’ fans might have thrown tantrums on seeing their childhood heroes’ altered avatars.
