When oodlesodoodles came and visited NYC (and by proxy, me), she came up with this great Dogpound/Bradford doodle, and then commissioned me to make some more komainu/shishi Bradford. And I dearly love the more mythological Bradford look.
Remember how in season 1 “TCRI” Leonardo states that Donnie’s tracker led them to a burrito in a microwave?
Then later on in season 2 “Metalhead Rewired”, a burrito in a vending machine led the turtles to the secret Kraang hideout. *foreshadowing*
In “Newtralized” Raphael is not using Hamato shuriken, but, instead using shuriken that looks just like Bradford’s from “New Friend, Old Enemy” *could this also be foreshadowing for something big later on in season 3*
Maybe the rumored Dark Raph story line, or maybe I’m over thinking.
