Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rejected designs look alien

For those of you who aren’t fans of the new turtle look, there are actually weirder designs that were created that actually made the Turtles look like aliens. Producer Michael Bay met with different visual effects houses to see which were going to be chosen to work on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. One of the companies was Illusion Industries, and concept artist Anthony Francisco shared his artwork to the public. I can truly say I’m not a fan of the design, and it looks like Bay wasn’t a fan either, since the company wasn’t hired.

“When Martin Astles (Head Sculptor at Illusion Industries) told me that Michael Bay wanted to do a TMNT movie, I started doing these concepts to help Illusion get the project. We did get a chance to meet with the producers and the meeting went well but we did not get the gig. So in a way these images you see have just become fan art coz I did not get paid for it, I just wanted to work on it so bad 🙂 . This was back in 2011.”

What do you guys think of the concept designs?
