What if Shredder, Splinter, Rocksteady and Bebop were real? What if the toxic ooze that created the 90s action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spilled into the sewers today? The results would probably look a lot like this.

Artist Dave Rapoza has updated the TMNT, and given them all a brand new real-life look. Even the creepy little fly villain, Baxter, from the cartoon got a makeover! Each new piece is both gorgeous and horrifying at the same time. It definitely makes us yearn for the old days of the Foot Clan.

Buy prints (and see plenty of more excellent art) at Rapoza's website.

Slash looks awesome.

I'd love to see this translated into a cartoon with this feel to it and not the feel good crap that's been around since the 80's. Including recent stuff.
