gfdi i can’t believe mutant apocalypse has given me ideas and compelled me to draw, like gdi brain can you have more class than this could you not choose a more worthy foe?

Anyway, concepty sketches only ‘cause I got too much other stuff to be drawing, but here’s a fully mutated post-apocalyptic wasteland April. Ever since I first devised a kraang!April, I had the headcanon that, being a perfect mix of human and kraang acclimatised to both Earth and Dimension X, she’d be a great terraforming machine? So, post-mutagen bomb, her pre-programmed job is to wander the wasteland slowly terraforming the crap out of it (since otherwise what was the freakin’ point, kraang?).

Not affiliated to any wasteland gang, not abiding any followers, doesn’t entertain bribes or even hold a conversation with lowly marauders; she’s just a semi-mythical goddess of destruction after 50 years and if you encounter her, you’re probably pretty screwed.

Speaking of, the bonus reunion that we deserved:

Can’t lie, really loved Don’s design in Mutant Apocalypse. I know the rabbit-eared robot concept is hardly an original design but it was really well and expressively animated, making a good replacement for his mask tails.

My particular FAVOURITE design element, though, was the jagged spiky carapace with mobile segments. I feel like 70% of the animation budget must have gone into all his little moving machine parts and glowy in-between bits, haha.

Excuse the artistic licence on some of the details - couldn’t get good refs for some of it.

Leo’s forced second mutation caused him to become like the one thing he hated the most…

That leaves me to assume, that the Shredder never left the forefront of his mind. Even after he defeated him and showed his family Shredder’s severed head ((in true samurai fashion)). His arch nemesis, the man who murdered  his father has probably always and will always haunt his nightmares..

He had tears in his eyes when he tried to push his brothers out of harm’s way. :,(
