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).
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.
Obviously TMNT now belongs to Viacom - XP whatever...

My head-canon ages are:
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.
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!
I don't know if you read TMNT fan fictions. But, I have two online right now!
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! ^^
Yeah, poor Leo's holding on as best he can (in more ways than one).
And the effects are awesome! Looks totally like a manga picture Just beautiful!
Yeah, I'm still learning how to use all the brushes I have to my fullest advantage. Not quite there yet!
But thanks again for commenting!
