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.

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. ;)

I love this Mondo/Mona/Raph triangle. It would be great to see in the new series too.
