TMNT: Mondo Gecko design by Ty-Chou TMNT: Mondo Gecko design by Ty-Chou
:icontmnt2012fans: had a character redesign contest for the new 2012 style. Since I love me lizards, I chose to redesign Mondo Gecko from the 80's cartoon. His old design kinda scares me.

So here's his new version. I still wanted him to be a bit of a skater, maybe with a tiny bit of hipster in there. He was previously human like Mona Lisa, and took his mutation far better than she did. He's pretty cool with it. I thought he would also be a romantic rival for Mona Lisa's affection since they're both lizards and both previously human.

Mondo needs to come back too. Truth be told, I always though it'd be cool if he and Mona were siblings.

I believe Bebop and Rocksteady have also been whispered of being in the show.

I meant to tell you I like how you colored around his eyes. I always thought if Mona Lisa appeared in the show, she'd be like the gecko from those Geico commercials. They have a little orange around their eyes and that could be like a permanent eye shadow for her.

I looked up pics of actual geckos and found the common gecko to have spots like that. But for Mona, I always thought of her as a typical green lizard, so no spots for her.

Ok, that makes sense, but what type of lizard? I mean, she never looked like an iguana since they don't have webbed feet and I've never seen a totally green salamander....unless I'm not looking hard enough.

Just your typical green garden lizard. Like an anole.

*googles anole* That'll work. Wow, good thing she's female or else she'd have that big pink thing in her throat. ;)

Yeah, his old design looks like he's on drugs. I really like his open toed sneakers and the spots. It gives him character.

I wish they would bring him and Mona into the now show.

I was talking to a friend of mine and thought if they did bring them in, it might be cool if they made them siblings. that way they could get mutated at the same time and have a explanation why two characters both have lizard mutations.

Thanks! I'm not 100% happy with him since he was last minute just for a contest instead of me having a burst of inspiration, but he'll do for now :)
