Turtle-Headed Warrior


Raphael, surely the finest of the turtles. Followed closely by Leonardo in my book, cos, katanas.
I gave myself a 15 min limit on this one, partly cos I'm busy, but mostly cos, y'know, sketchblog.

Ah Man, its turning into eighties week. This is great Mooney

David said...

Raphael was cool but a bit too rude for my liking. I liked Donatello cos he did machines. Great sketch. Love some 80s nostalgia.

Moondog said...

Rafael is cool but rude? Gimme a break!
And Michelangelo, well he's a party dude.

Fran Johnston said...

good stuff mooner. cowabunga!

Raphael was clearly the best of the turtles. I like the pose a lot on this. I also like how you wrote 'Ninja' on it, the way you would have done when you were fourteen.

Leeann H said...

Oh, Yeah. :D I keep calling them Hero Turtles as the name Ninja was banned in Britain, due to crackdowns on nunchucks and sword-ownership. D:

David said...

Yeah. I saw Raphael with a sai but I didn't buy one cos it didn't gave ninja in the name.

Moondog said...

I do a lot of things the way I would when I was fourteen, especially with the Ladeez.

That song wasn't altogether accurate, as he wasn't really that rude. He was funny though; that's why he was my favourite. Leonardo was too square and Michaelangelo really annoyed me.

Cool pose by the way.

I'm a Leo man. Raph was all mouth. I prefer the strong silent type. Nice work Moonerston, good to see proper sketches up

Nick said...

"Cool but Crude" is what I thought the lyrics were? (You have personally achieved only 50% of said equation, Stephen.) Nice stuff for a fifteen minute piece - mine'd still be scribbles and scrawls waiting for a shape to be put on it by that point. "NINJA!!!!!!" indeed. Pose is top-notch.

I used to be a Leo guy, but flip-flopped onto Raph after reading the Mirage books.

Moondog said...

Looked it up, it's 'rude' not 'crude'. You were obviously a tad more verbose than the average 12 year old.
That said you had the hearing of a 70 year old.

Nick said...

9-year-old. I was 9.

David said...

Great. Now I have the theme song in my head.

Judy said...

Ah, I was a Donatello fan, science n all that jazz. Raph was pretty cool though, I really like this sketch :)

jacintha said...

I liked Leonardo...but that's just cos I like to be charge. I also thought it was crude when I was younger! Nice work honey...I could have drawn the NINJA bit for ya if you'd liked.. x

Moondog said...

Really? You should've said, you totally could've drawn it.
Better than me probly.

Stephen Thompson said...

Wow, I would've thought the whole Turtles thing would've been over with when you were a kid Jacintha.

Will Sliney said...

Turtles thing Over? There still going on

jacintha said...

I was just joking...the only thing I've ever drawn for you was a tracing of AH. Thompson...re-runs and older siblings, plus yeah they are stilling going on!
