Raphael is Cool But Crude by D-pi Raphael is Cool But Crude by D-pi
Raphael is cool but crude.
I imagine Raphael is kind of a punk, an anarchist. He reads all of Splinter's radical political texts. He's dumpster diving for Guy Debord and bombing ads and stuff. 
Raph is an avid fighter but uses Sai because he can subdue the enemy without hurting them too badly. He also identifies with the weapon because it was born from a tool of the proletariat. He busts Leo's bals because he uses two swords.
You can get the original 19x24cm drawing on Maruman art spiral paper over on my etsy.
These characters were made by Eastman and Laird... fuck if I know who owns them now.

I love the draftsmanship on this, the 'angle', the shadow, the line, the speech bubble and the dynamism as a whole. Lovely.

Awesome art brother.

The whole punk/anarchist turtle dumpster diving for marxist texts just seems to fit him very well. Again, bravo my friend.

I enjoy this in three different ways. As a skateboarder, a crude individual, and a grown ass man with an unnatural fixation with The Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles.

Raph listens to a lot of NPR?
Reply
:icond-pi:
D-pi Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012
Yup! You ain't know? He on there, hosting. He uses the income from NPR to subsidize his own guerrilla radio. He he he... get the fuck outa here! ;-)
but really though, he listen to NPR while he cleans his part of the tunnel lair, tho.

I love the Gambino look, so fitting to give him the cool dork vibe. But I could swear this is Donnie. Purple head, skinny & all...
Reply
:icond-pi:
D-pi Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
I don't know what a "Gambino look" is, but Raph get's his style from digging through the trash of Bushwick teenagers. ...while mostly avoiding the huge population of teenagers who are also digging through the garbage.
My version of Raph is the leanest of the turtles because even when he's not training he's skating or reading radical literature. Mike would come in second, because with all of his breaking, he'd be super slim if not for the ENORMOUS amounts of pizza he eats. Next is Leo, who trains the most but spends a lot of time watching jidaegeki. Also battojutsu just doesn't burn as many calories as skating the expansive NY tunnel system. Donny has the highest fat content as he spends most of his down time tinkering around with his computers and machines.
