Splinter by WonderDookie Splinter by WonderDookie
Continuing with the Ninja Turtles redesign series with Splinter (counting down to the Turtles themselves).

I was thinking of Splinter being more of a Morihei Ueshiba figure. He seemed more like he would use an Aikido style martial arts to me, redirecting a villain's attack back at them. Anyway, this is my version of Splinter as an old wisened sensei figure.

Thanks! Yeah, it was actually based off of the guy that make up Aikido, the martial art. It seemed quite appropriate.

DUDE! This is great! I love your designs AND the fact that you reference Aikido. I've practiced Aikido for 6 years and I love seeing when other people use its ideas in art.

Thanks!

My dad actually studied Aikido for a number of years, so I picked some of the stuff up as a kid. Of course at the time I was more into the kind of martial arts that involved breaking things.
