Tortuga Me Gusta
"In all this suffering we must live as if we were dancing, following the heavenly and the natural, climaxing in not knowing we are burned up. This is to nourish our lives. Nourishment occurs not high in the misty mountains away from the world's suffering, but in the very midst of suffering."

Kuang-ming Wu, "The Butterfly as Companion Philosophy"
Anonymous asked: I've seen some questions about how the boys would react to a newcomer to the lair and a very shy person, and I loved your answers, but how do you think Splinter would handle those situations ? ( Cuz there are never enough questions about the rat dad ).

Oh yeah lol forgot about the rat daddy :3  WELL I think he’d be kind of like Leo, leaving the person alone and giving them enough space to adapt and get comfy.  He’d probably have them join him for tea and would start showing them all the pictures he has of the turtles as tots ^^  "Ah yes, and here is young Raphael in his first timeout… and Michelangelo hitting himself in the face with his nunchaku!  Oh, just look at Donatello using the big boy potty for the first time!  Finally, ha!"

I think that would help open the person up :3  Embarrassing photos huzzah!

Anonymous asked: How do you think each of the guys would react to meeting someone who looked human (isn't really human) but rather has to devour humans in order to keep living?

Wait what?

Okay, let me get this straight… someone who appears human on the outside, but survives by eating people?  How would that even happen?  A crazy experience of Bishop’s or something?

All I can think of is the creature being a really cute girl and Mikey going all OOOOH  WASSUP GURL and seeing her devour a huge guy and going DAAAMN GURL U HUNGRY and feeling a bizarre mix of being turned on and totally creeped out.

thoughtmirror asked: How accepting are Casey and April about the guys lifestyle in terms with them potentially killing people if they have to and how they risk their lives every day for people?

I think Casey is more accepting of that lifestyle because, well, he kind of lives it too, but in a crazier, totally drunk way… until he becomes friends with the turtles and April, that is!  I think they gave Casey something in life he was lacking before, whether that’s a reason to stay sober or to get up in the morning.  He just went around beating up people without any regard to his own safety.  Shadow definitely helped as well.  You know, in the comics, Casey always relapses whenever something goes wrong with April, like when they broke up and later on when April was recovering from finding out she can’t have her own children… he really loves her.  I think he knows she’s too good for him, but, similar to how Raph would be in a relationship, he doesn’t want to let her go.

Anyway lol sorry this was becoming about my Casey bby ^^  April would definitely be very against all of the boys’ lifestyles!  I can actually see her arguing with Splinter over his obsession with vengeance for Hamato Yoshi and Tang Shen.  April strikes me as someone who’s focused on learning from the past and not repeating it, someone who doesn’t believe in an eye for an eye and who would want Splinter and the turtles to move on.  So I can see her being very upfront and outspoken with them.

thoughtmirror asked: Personally, I liked how Splinter was characterized in Tmnt 2014 movie. After watching the movie, I honestly think that he is definitely not one to be screwed with. He protects his sons fervently and will die for them. How do you feel about him and his personality, etc.?

I really enjoyed him!  I was worried when I originally heard he was going to be played by Danny Woodburn because I just couldn’t imagine his voice coming out of Splinter’s mouth so I was happy when Ton Shaloub ended up voicing him.  Since this Splinter’s origins aren’t Japanese, it fit that his voice wouldn’t have an accent.  I liked how he disciplined his sons.  He must’ve known they’d get big fast and he’d stay small discipline and showing them who’s boss was imperative.  I liked how he used his tail to fight; that was something I hadn’t seen in prior TMNT adaptations so it was a fun, refreshing change.  I also liked how his design was influenced by Toshiro Mifuno, samurai movie legend.

I do have concerns over the culture approbation expressed in the film on Splinter’s behalf.  It does make it more logical that mutated Splinter found books on ninjutsu and learned from them as opposed to learning them from watching Yoshi when he was a regular rat (although, Mr. Laird said Splinter was never an ordinary rat).

MOONCALFE SAID: O_O

EXACTLY MY REACTION TO EVERYTHING I WITNESSED

ciro apparently enjoys that shit given the trend in previous episodes and somehow i am not surprised

MOONCALFE SAID: OH GOD WHAT DID YOU SEE?? D:

Horrible things.  So many horrible, terrible things that will haunt my nightmares forever.  But it’s what I get for searching the interwebs for help drawing the turtle d and end up discovering horrifying monster hentai.

IT’S ALMOST AS BAD AS THE TIME I CHECKED OUT THE ALIEN SEX TAG ON TUMBLR

Before and after what?  If you want something else, ask another artist.  There’s plenty on tumblr.

Anonymous asked: don't forget 2012 radical and moriah.

I’ve already drawn a 2k3 version of Radical and I have no interest in drawing Moriah.  I might do something with Radical, but I don’t have any ideas I like yet for her design, especially in the 2012 universe.  She’ll have to have pointy boobs, big feet, and be a love interest who is revealed to be a mutant robot superhuman.

I’m joking.  I may draw her, but I don’t know yet.

FREE-RANGE-ORGANIC-SOFA SAID: IF THE REACTION IN THE 2K12 TAGS ARE ANY INDICATION, THERE WILL BE AN OFFICIALLY LICENSED TENTACLE PORN PARODY ANY DAY NOW

No one’s thinking of the children because the last thing we need in a FUCKING TENTACLE PORN PARODY OF THE 2012 SHOW.  And this is coming from someone who has drawn turtle d with Mikey-level shame and by that I mean literally none.

THELONEMUTATION SAID: I THINK I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT, AND THAT SCARES ME, AND SADDENS ME, BECAUSE THIS SHOW IS..HUH..YEAH.

OMFG SOME THINGS SHOULDN’T EXIST BUT THEY DO AND THEN TO SEE THOSE THINGS HERE IT’S JUST
