Raph needs to take a breather every now and then. I love how different each turtles' personality is.

Your turtles are the only ones I've ever seen that seem to have any sort of real character & depth to them. The first film touched on this a bit, but your renditions really seem to have a lot of that brothery/angsty teen/outcast sort of vibe to them. Kudos man, you're able to take these essentially goofy & cartoony characters and breathe real life into them!

thank you so much!! that means a lot.

not to refute your ego boost, which i appreciate, but you should check out *sneefee's work! her Turtles are amazing and have tons of character. some of her best pieces, in my opinion, are in storage but what she has displayed is still great:

warning, though, some pieces contain cuddling/NSFW Turtles. :XD:

Ugh, this makes me wanna dig up my ink and watercolors again... and then I will probably toss them out the window cause I can't make anything nearly as awesome looking with them as this! XD

Oh, I have (with watercolors at least), buuuut in retrospect it kinda looks more like a 12 year old did them :iconepicfailguyplz: But after I've finished my (very amateurish) comic... thing , I've definitively been tempted to give it another try :)

Are you doing IDW's TMNT issues 21, 22, 23, 24? I know Andy Kuhn did issues 13, 14, 15, 16 and Ben Bates is doing 17, 18, 19, 20. Or is this for your Secret of the Ooze fan fic?

i'm not doing those issues, no, at least at the moment. this picture was for a friend of mine, just for fun. in my TMNT fan-comic the Turtles look a bit different than this, they don't have masks. :tmnt1:

I know I've been feeling a bit like Raph here over the last few months.

I always love the way you do emotions. You're such a master at it

I think the feeling I most take away from this pic is Raph's vulnerability. It's in the slumped shoulders and the way his feet are angled towards each other. It makes him appear sad and lost all at the same time.
