Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Legend of the Yokai Artwork

If you’re as much of a Ninja Turtles fan as I am, you probably already know about the brilliant website, Legend of the Yokai, and it’s collection of amazing Turtles artwork. If you haven’t already clapped your eyes on some of the awesomeness over there, then read on for more info!

NEW LEGEND OF THE YOKAI ARTWORK RELEASED INCLUDING PIECE FROM UK ARTIST SAM GILBEY

Before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles emerged from their lair to protect New York City from the sinister Shredder and his Foot Clan soldiers, there were four heroic “Kappa” (ancient turtle warriors who vowed to protect a humble village from the demonic Yokai).

Paramount Pictures is taking movie fans back in time, to an age of tradition, mystery and magic. In a collaboration with distinguished artists from around the world, “The Legend of the Yokai” is a new experience that explores the secret origins of the Ninja Turtles.┬áBased on traditional folklore, “The Legend of the Yokai” tells the epic tale of a village over-run by an evil warlord and his army of demon monsters. When all hope seems lost, the wishes of an innocent girl summon forth the heroic kappa turtles, who abide by the pillars of honor, courage, wisdom and brotherhood, fighting side-by-side to vanquish this fearsome evil.

Featuring artwork based on these four ideals created by over a 30 artists from around the world, “The Legend of the Yokai” brings an ancient epic to life and connects it to a new generation of heroes: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

There are some amazing pieces over there, which are keeping me entertained whilst I eagerly await the release of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (hitting UK cinemas on October 17th 2014). Check them out at www.legendoftheyokai.com
