See What Shredder and the Ninja Turtles Almost Looked Like in the New Movie

Oh yes, we're big fans of concept art around these parts, and today we've got some cool art featuring alternate images from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which opened big enough to warrant the announcement of a sequel, due in theaters on June 3, 2016. The following images come courtesy of CBM, which also interviewed artist Kelton Cram.

Check out all the art below (click on the images to enlarge), along with some notes from Cram. 


Cram: "They wanted all the Turtles to be unique in shape and size. Tall and skinny to short and stalky to even more brutish."



Cram: "Shredder had a lot of changes throughout the process. The script would have big rewrites, and we completely revisited Shredder's look and function. I got to spend a lot of time making numerous versions for Shredder."


Cram: "Probably every TMNT image on the Net was at some point viewed, or mentioned hehe. Originally we worked with concept designer Jerad Marantz. His work was very inspiring and helped influence the overall feel of the characters."


Cram: "Because everything was tackled very early on in 3D, there was a lot of work for each change being made that would have to effect all the models and illustrations. Also: the attachment of the shell, and trying to keep the turtles looking strong but able to move and fight at the same time was a bit tricky."
