Hi Realm! So I picked up a copy of Kevin Eastman's Artobiography book and came across an image I never saw before. It was the first ever ninja turlte drawing he made. It was so odd and freaky. I loved it and had to make a custom of it. This sculpture was made completely from scratch using sculpey, styrene, and apoxie sculpt. Hope you guys like it and thanks for checking it out!

Very awesome sculpt! It looks exactly like Kevin Eastman's sketch in 3D form!

I started taking customizing serious and joined this site almost exactly one year ago. Being in the "most talked about customs" section of this site couldnt make me feel any better at the end of this looong year. It's quite the milestone! Thank YOU all so much for that!! Figurerealm helped me tap some creative depths I didn't even knew I really had. Heres to a NEW YEAR of producing more! 2014 here we gooooooooooo.

Crazy-creative, bona fide piece of art! Someone has to show this to Kevin Eastman; I'm sure he'd heartily approve!
Kevlar Palsh - Saturday, December 7, 2013
I tagged him on FB but he didn't give me any feedback.

That's beautiful. Excellent job capturing the likeness.
Eastman should see that, that's how good it is. Get it on Toycutter's site.

Incredible...beyond old school. This is really something else.
Patraw - Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Beautiful piece; that's one of the best TMNT customs I've seen in a long time, and the fact that it's something so unusual, yet historically important, is just icing on the cake. Well done!
Kevlar Palsh - Wednesday, December 4, 2013
THANK YOU! Exactly Patraw! I feel the design is too important to half A-$$. I would have never forgave myself if I fumbled this one.
