Raphael from July 2021

How about some more recent stuff, huh?

My friend Meghan of Dirty Teacup Designs and some of her friends have started a montly Arizona Artists’ “Happy Hour” (click here to learn more about these events), and back in July, I doodled this up while we were all hanging out.

Unfortunately, I went to erase some of the pencil lines before the ink had fully dried, and ended up smearing it. I tried to mitigate that a bit by adding some motion lines, but then realized that his bandana is fluttering in the wrong direction. Oh well!

It’s not like I’m never gonna draw a Ninja Turtle again. Heh.

Raphael and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird and are now owned by Nickelodeon.
