The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have remained cultural icons since the '80s. Following a group of radioactive, martial artist-trained turtles defending their city from the sewers, a franchise with a premise this solid was bound to last over 30 years. We've seen so many different iterations of the turtles, and their influence, from comics to cartoons, from feature films to foam suits - the turtles have done it all. With a legacy like that, it's no surprise that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan art is absolutely everywhere. There are literally thousands of fan-made images portraying the turtles in every art style imaginable.
TMNT fan art is so popular it's even spilled into other shows. Some images depict other characters as ninja turtles, others show what the turtles might look like in a different series - but they all have two things in common: they are weird, and they are awesome.
