Random Oddities

Wow, my Jenna Elfman sketches are comin' along quite shitty...I suck. As such, I will continue doing Jenna until she tells me to stop (that's right, you read it correctly).

Also, I watched TMNT on Sunday and would recommend it to any avid "Turtles" fan. Definitely nowhere near perfect (just read the reviews online), but it was rather entertaining and it beats watching anything that's come out within the last few months. Finally, an American animated movie with some goddamn violence. Oh and April is hot I would totally do her, 3D model or otherwise.

And last but not least, congrats to Matt Long for being the first person to delete one of my comments. I'm actually surprised that it took that long (no pun intended).

Anyways, time for some oddities...

Uh, Tal, about 99% of TMNT was animated in Hong Kong... I think Ken Duncan's studio was the only American studio that worked on it. Though I agree, the movie was pretty badass, the turtles definitely benefit from being CG, the humans though, not so much.

And sorry about deleting your comment, the first part of it was a bit too mean spirited, also John Nevarez had just linked to my blog, so who knows what pros may have been browsing through, my parents also read it I think.

Yeah, I saw the credits at the end. However, didn't the preproduction occur here? I think it was even partially animated here (at least according to the credits). That means the violence was 100% pure American. The turtles looked killer, a little over acted, but still pretty awesome. And since when did April turn into an archeologist by day and japanese ninja master at night?

Oh and don't worry about deleting my comment; it was bound to happen eventually. I apologize for its vugarity.

That's, vulgarity.

Dude, anyone can become a ninja master overnight, it was all in that nifty suit she bought. Hell, they sell those things for like $500 in Akihabara, just waiting for american nerds.

Pretty crazy characters the next TMNT villains should be based off these. I thought some of the designs of the humans in the movie seemed like those in "The Incredibles" while others looked more anime influenced. Ah well, its all about the turtles anyway.

Hey thanks Raynard!! I'll go pitch them for TNMT 2 just so they can hire me and then fire me for the heel of it...that's what I'd do if I was an exec. Glad you like 'em.

That ninja suit definitely looked good on April though, let me tell you. If I wasn't there with Sal and, uhhhh, surrounded by hundreds of crying kids and disgruntled parents the things I'd have done...
