(( Y-yeah I know this is late. But I'm doing these challenge pics as I feel like doing so. I do plan to finish them all - just at my own pace. ))TMNT 30 Day Challenge - Day 2: Least Favorite TurtleMy Choice
: -deep sigh- I had to think long and hard about this one. Mostly because it was kind of a toss up between Raph and Mikey. But with the help of my friend, jedinightwing, from Gaia, he pretty much made me realize what my choice was.
Don't get me wrong. I adore Mikey. He's a sweetie, but I have big reasons as to why I seem to like him the least.
For example, he doesn't show too much character development when it comes to most television series (at least for now). Yes, he has his moments of where he does shine - but the majority of the time he's mostly the pizza loving goofball with a heart of gold. Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes it's hard to come up with things for him when it comes to giving him real character development.
I know he has moments of having slight development in the comics like the Archie ones, but I mostly saw it during the future turtles stuff. So that doesn't count to me. Neither does SAINW as much as I love that version of Mikey from the 2003 series.
Yes, he did actually fight against that one guy from the Battle Nexus tournament legitimately in a rematch - I'll admit that was cool. When he got Klunk - that was some slight development in a way where we saw his kind nature. Heck, even in Fast Forward when it came to the Graduation episode - he had some interesting qualities during that one.
I mean dang - even in movie 3 he had development! He fell in love with a woman, but was heartbroken because he wanted to stay with her when he had promised that her love Kenshin would return once he left. ...it may have not been the best movie, but I did love that bit of development.
My issue is - development moments are too rare for Mikey and it's unfortunate.
Also I will admit - sometimes his hyperactivity annoys me. ...Like that one episode in 2012 series where Mikey keeps doing "THE OLYMPICS! THE OLYMPICS?!" Good God. I love Mikey, but that really annoyed me because it was constant. It almost reminded me of the 2003 series where Mikey would constantly mention how he was Battle Nexus Champion. ._.;
Honestly when it became a toss up between Raph and Mikey it was pretty much - annoyed by harshness vs annoyed by hyperactivity.
We need more Mikey development, dang it! Having him always goofy in episodes don't always satisfy me.Artwork Description
: Hey! Just because Mikey may be my least favorite turtle (atm) doesn't mean that I can't do any spiffy art of him, right?
I wanted to try and do a pic that was just flat colors and no lineart. Kinda vector-ish I suppose?
...dang it. Now I want pizza.
