"This world, this future...It's a nightmare..."



My tribute to the infamous TMNT episode: "Same as it never was"
(2k3 series, ep.73)

Those who watched the series, know what this is all about... A dystopian world, a horrible future... Heck, it even made me want to read Orwell's "1984" novel just to understand more what this is all about.

The episode was shocking and that's why it just stuck in my head, making me want to portray how I saw it...T-T

Huge thanks goes to :iconkotori-chan: for her constant support throughout the process. =w=/ It was...a very long one indeed. orz

Another huge thanks goes to the Inception soundtrack for providing the perfect mood to drive me on.

Sketch can be found on my artblog: [link]

I really like this.  I love how you have the turtles grouped together with Donnie as the focal point.  The blood splatter on their weapons is really cool.  It depicts the episode well. :iconinuclapplz:
