TMNT - Father's Burden by RoseDuelistBBSHM TMNT - Father's Burden by RoseDuelistBBSHM
Okay, so I drew this mainly 'cause I've seen so many pics on DA where Splinter is carrying around his little tot turtles, and wondered what the rat would look like if he ran into a situation where he had to carry one of his fully grown sons - in this case, Leonardo. So, that is what you see here.
Yes, my version of Splinter is very different - I'm fairly certain being a fan of BMFM beforehand has influenced me to draw him this way; although, I do favor the Henson Creature Shop version of the old rat above all others, and that IS what I try to model mine after to some extent (minus the chopped ear). :XD:
Okay...
--
While visiting Japan with his family, Splinter and Leo decide to check out the ancient temples and shrines in Kyoto; knowing they aren't really interested in such things, Splinter allows Raph, Don, and Mike to stay behind in Osaka. However, while they're exploring the Kiyomizu temple, they are suddenly attacked by an unknown clan of ninjas wearing dark red; the pair fight bravely and escape, but they did not do so unscathed. While bandaging his arm, Leonardo suddenly collapses and Splinter is shocked to realize, the tanto that wounded his son had a poisoned blade.
Leo is overcome with fever. Splinter does what he can to help his son, and makes a bandage wrapped with herbs to draw out the poison. Still, Splinter knows they will be much better off once they get back to the other three members of their family, and away from the territory of those who attacked them. They later learn the red ninjas are members of the Dokueki Clan. The Dokueki ninjas specialize in the use of poisons, their most powerful being the venom of the Gaboon viper which is so toxic it can cause a body to reject its own blood. X.x
--
Do NOT pick a fight with the Dokueki ninjas!
Yes, the Dokueki Ninja are to me.

Splinters fatherhood story, no matter how it's told, is always so endearing! And this shows that no matter how big his little turtles get, he will always carry them whenever they may need! So cute!

did you know that they are 18 or19 years old in the 2007 movie?

I figured. And I actually prefer them older. In my comic and stories, the only one who is still a teen is Mikey.
My head-canon ages are:
:tmnt2: = 22
:tmnt1: = 21
:tmnt4: = 20
:tmnt3: = 19

But they are twins My dear. No different ages

RoseDuelistBBSHM Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I would argue that they did not all hatch from their eggs at the same moment. And hatching at different times puts minutes or even hours between them, so that when they mutated that time became much more in human terms. :nod:

I say this because Master Splinter is always pointing out that Leonardo is "the eldest of his brothers" - he could not say this if they were all the same age. There would be no oldest, or youngest. :aww:

Glad you like my pic here! This was my first real drawing of Splinter-sensai.

Yeah, I know the Redwall mice, but, this was largely inspired by BMFM! :D

Oh, I don't just like it. I LOVE IT! :D:D:D I showed my little sis, and she thought Splinter was the cutest thing ever! :giggle:
Ah, that makes sense :) (I don't watch that many shows with mice as the main characters :XD:, but yesh, I can see the influence of BMFM :))

Did you come up with that little story yourself?

Aw! I'm so glad you like my version of Splinter-sensei! :aww: Also, thank you for the compliments! Blush 

And, yes! I wrote that little story! I've got a pretty far-reaching imagination. ^^; (In other words, the Dokueki Ninja are my own original idea.)  So, don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Shifty Eyes

I don't know if you read TMNT fan fictions. But, I have two online right now! :D

I often wonder what kind of step father Joseph was. Did he like teaching Jesus carpentry? Was Jesus a good student, who learned quickly?

We'll find out one day, I'm sure! ^^
