Sketches to Be Cleaned Up

Original Background Concept

This was our concept image for when we decided we wanted to use live action backgrounds. As stated previously, however, we weren't able to get good photos for live backgrounds, so they will more than likely be drawn for the final film. Also, our real backgrounds would have obviously been sized to fit the turtles. This image was just a test image grabbed off of google.

Trip to Metro-Beach

Our original plan was to use live action backgrounds for our project. However, seeing as it was late in the season and not having realized how crappy Metro-Beach was, we decided that it would be best to draw our backgrounds.

Metro-Beach just doesn't look like a place where baby sea turtles would hatch:

Tracks...
Buildings...
Muck...
Haze, more tracks...
Chunky sand...
We found a dead fish though. It was big and stinky!
Closer Look:
And here's some gull footage. Some people were feeding them, despite the signs saying not to:

All in all, even if we didn't get what we needed, it was still a nice day.

Turtle with Thompson Behind Cover


Arms needs fixing, but pretty much done.

Layout for last stand scene

Ready for animation. Also made a few different muzzle flashes as well as tracers.
