Unused Storyboard Week #3: TMNT 2012 test board by TVsKyle
I thought I’d take this week to show off a bunch of storyboards that I worked hard on that, for one reason or another, was never used. In all these instances, I’m not upset or anything, but I did work hard on them, and I thought it would be cool, and perhaps educational, to share them.
So, as I was wrapping up my run on Fanboy and Chum Chum, much of the crew was moving on to the then-in-preproduction Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think all of the storyboard artists on FB&CC had opportunity to test for it. This is my test. As I look back on it, I’m pretty sure the reason I didn’t get this job is that I did a friggin’ terrible job on this test. It probably didn’t help that I did it after work while bustling all day trying to meet another Fanboy deadline. And this is a pretty long test. But also, I’m a huge Turtle fan from way back and I was very nervous. That nervousness lead to stunted, held-back stuff. I don’t know why I was cleaning up to that degree in the first half (other than Fanboy kinda beating it into me). Regardless, other than a few neat nervous Donnie drawings, the acting I did here is weaksauce. I think the action half I did when I was running out of time, and I think it’s the stronger half. I’ve become a bigger action fan since and I could easily do better now, but compared to the first half, it ain’t bad. I drew some dumb looking Stockman heads, though. Not my best work, but I thought it might still be interesting for people to look at.

I encourage everyone to watch this heartbreaking documentary about the dissolution of the accomplished and lauded visual effects studio Rhythm & Hues (where some friends of mine worked), yet another high-profile casualty of the collapsing VFX industry due the turbulent, ill-structured quagmire that is the movie business. My old buddy Scott Leberecht did a wonderful job directing and editing this story. Definitely worth 30 minutes of your time, particularly if you make your living where art and commerce overlap.

Life After Pi - Documentary

Just…just watch it. It’ll hit you in some way. Whether it be by sadness, anger, or wanting to do something about this. I don’t know, I don’t usually go and comment on stuff but this really got to me and the industry i’m trying to get into. Things do have to change. Hopefully sooner than later.

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

Everyone is talking about how obsessive and stalker-like Donnie is being, but you have to remember they are teens that have been stuck in the sewer! Normal boys that age are still figuring out how to treat girls.  The turtles have been stuck in a sewer all of their lives, so that does not help the situation later. Donnie is not a bad guy for being obsessive like, he is just a clueless teen with room to grow just like his other brothers.

I don’t have a problem with Don being an obsessive stalker.
I have a problem with him not learning that his actions and obsessive thoughts about a girl he’s only shown he likes due to her appearance are disturbing.  Hopefully, the writers will show him acknowledging this and growing from it.

I think he has grown to like April for more than her appearance. I mean sure the first thing he said was “That’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen” but there has to be an initial spark that drew him to her in the first place. He cares about her deeply and is learning how to behave around her.
I saw that someone also commented on this in regards to his “aggressive behavior” whenever someone else (usually Casey) gets “in the way” and I still attribute that to his inexperience with people in general. April is special so he feels like he has to hold on to her tightly. And he is learning how to “share” her with others as seen in Wormquake, he just doesn’t like it.
That’s just my quick little opinion on this.

That’s one of my issues - we haven’t been shown anything in regards to Don liking April beyond the very first time he saw her.  I don’t see them really working on projects together for fun (it would’ve been nice to see them studying together, maybe show that Don helped April improve in trigonometry) in their downtime or training together.  I wish the writers would go that extra mile to show us the extent of their relationship and explore why Don likes April.  So far, I only understand Don’s feelings in terms of his familial isolation and need for acceptance, but those are less April-specific and more geared towards Don himself.

They absolutely need more bonding time shown onscreen (for all the turtles and April, really), But Donnie has also admired her for her interrogation methods when she’s wearing her stealth hoodie (she’s so COOL), so it’s more than just her looks, and they’ve been shown to be doing (offscreen) science things together on two occasions at least — while working on the sewage analysis (and she had to want to be there — the show’s been very good about establishing that when she doesn’t want to do something ,she has no problem saying no), and while working on the Kraang orb (April’s the only one in his lab when it goes off and the way the dialogue is framed implies to me that she’s not just arriving — she’s been there a while doing something). So it’s *implied* that they spend time together being science nerds. I just wish they’d SHOW it.

The problem with the show when it comes to relationships is that a lot of the time, it relies on implication — this was the whole problem with the “April quitting the team” arc at the start of season 2. Aside from Donnie’s obvious misery after April left, we didn’t see or hear any concern from the other three that she was gone, or even that they cared aside from two lines - one from Raph, cheering Donnie up, and one from Leo about how her phone was still off. 
The show, though, is pretty clear both in what it shows and what it implies is between Donnie and April. They’re basically best friends, and Donnie’s crush is barely even a factor most of the time. It’s there, and it probably always will be, but for now, their friendship comes first. He doesn’t crowd her, he doesn’t beg for attention anymore like he did back in early season 1 (put your biceps and your goosebumps away, child).
They’re science nerds, like Fanta said, and he’s a fan of everything ELSE April can do, too, not just that she’s pretty (look at how he moons over her after she throws Karai down the stairs!). It’s also implied that they hang out (the photograph of them on the swing), and that she looks to Donnie for acceptance in her training — she’s pissed when he trashes her skills.
Donnie’s the one April texts about Leo and Karai, the one April’s nicknamed and turned into a blingee disaster on her T-phone. She trusts him with her open e-mail inbox. He’s the one April calls when she’s in trouble and it’s important to note that this all comes from April. Donnie isn’t blowing up her phone. He’s given her a cute ringtone. That’s it.
This even goes as far as physical affection. Save for two instances, Donnie’s never initiated anything — and one of those instances, he was rejected (The Alien Agenda). All hugs and kisses come from April, unexpected and unasked for.
As for the point about Donnie learning from his mistakes… he has been. Constantly. [This awesome piece of meta] that theherocomplex​ wrote goes into a bunch of detail about the way Donnie treats April and should honestly be fandom required-reading.
—
As for Casey and “sharing” April, I thought the show was pretty clear that all of Casey’s initial interactions with Donnie bred dislike even putting their crushes aside: Casey left April alone in the sewers while she was drugged up and afraid (their rule is no turtle left behind and there’s no reason this wouldn’t extend to April), Casey dragged April through the Kraang portal (the Kraang really want April’s head on a pike), Casey made cracks about Ice Cream Kitty eating Donnie’s rat father, and Casey is another Raphael, the brother that Donatello notably gets along with least out of the other three.
Their interactions show Casey firmly on the aggressive with Donnie (throwing out gaptooth as a personal attack for literally no reason) — Donatello is on the defensive until the end of The Manhattan Project/Wormquake! because Casey puts him there. Casey puts him down, often in the same ways Raph does — and sometimes a little more insidiously (Donnie’s not a “real scientist”, he said to April, in a effort to steer her away from talking to Donatello).
Donatello may be threatened by Casey, but Casey is the one who actively treats Donnie like a threat.
Neither one of them behaves perfectly when it comes to their crushes, but again, like theherocomplex​ [said], if you want to call Donnie creepy, or a stalker, or anything else, you need to take a good hard look at the rest of the show. 
They’re all teenagers. They’re all idiots by default. But Donnie likes April for more than just how she might look in a jumpsuit.

Seems like my erasers vanished all but one and that one doesn’t work well enough for my current project…..
*gest cape* Time to buy ERASERS!

back and successful! Mysteriously did three packs of fine tea and a pack of erasable color pencils from faber castell also end up in my shopping bag… 

Best way to solve this mystery is probably making a cup of tea for better thinking now XD

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
