Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Illustrated by Renaissance Namesakes


Over the course of a decades-long career, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have changed a bit.

In their new reboot, the heroes in a half-shell have grown into hulking, digital badasses. But one thing remains the same: their namesakes.

The Ninja Turtles are named after four artists of the Italian Renaissance: Da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. So, what would the turtles look like if Da Vinci et. al. had designed them?

To give you an idea, we crafted these humble tributes to artistry, skateboards and nunchucks. Check them out below.
