[#DrawWithMango × #DailyMovieSketch]Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)Directed by Steve BarronA couple of days back @mangopenciler and I were discussing about a lot of nostalgic things from the 90s. Yesterday, I also made a post on @karthikabhiram documenting this as well so do check that out. For the new #DrawWithMango challenge, the theme was decided as 90s Nostalgia. It's a wonderful theme and I decided that I'll draw a sketch covering one movie from each year in the decade. This is the first entry — from the 1990 movie adaptation of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. I actually watched TMNT II and a few episodes of the cartoon on videotape, before watching this. TMNT II was one of the videos I had as a kid, and I must've watched that movie scores of times! Go Ninja Go Ninja Go! And in the early 90s when the TMNT show was aired on TV, I was a huge fan and watched every episode.Here are a couple of things you may not know about TMNT (more in comments): • The director, Steve Barron, made the A-Ha "Take On Me" music video.• This film and the two sequels were a New Line Cinema and Golden Harvest co production. You might remember the Golden Harvest logo from Jackie Chan movies of the 1980s and early 90s.• The Turtles' and Splinter's heads are all animatronic puppets, controlled by several operators. The puppet effects are fantastic and hold up so well even today, the characters have such lifelike expressions that it's hard to believe you're watching puppets.• The film takes inspiration from an early comic story arc.• The 1980s animated show theme song was co-written by Chuck Lorre, creator of "The Big Bang Theory"! I drew Raphael from the film, this is from an early scene where he comes out of a theatre having watched "Critters" (another New Line film, and another bit of 90s nostalgia), and says "Where do they come up with this stuff"! This is right before he runs into Casey Jones.I drew this with my new @ns1pen and Reynolds red ballpoint pen on A6 Brustro sketchbook. This is a scan. #419 / 1-Mar-19
