Hi everyone, I managed to get today's sketch done today with a quickness. I wanted to do a fast sketch today to get loose again as I spent so much time coloring the previous sketch and not as much time actually sketching. So I gave myself a 15 minute time limit for this one and I feel like it went pretty well.
I decided to do a drawing of Raphael because I got a sweet new TMNT wallpaper at work. And he has always been my favorite Ninja Turtle. Not just because he's bad@$$, but he's also proficient with my favorite kobudo weapon. The sai. Ever since I picked up my first pair I was in love. It's such a dynamic weapon. You can strike, puncture, trap and pummel people, all with the same device. It really is quite an elegant weapon. No wonder the police in ancient Japan used a modified version of it as their 'side arm'.
I have often wondered though, which of the turtles would be the best at using the tonfa? Perhaps that will be a sketch for another day.
Anyway, I hope you all dig it. Raph was sketched and colored in CS3 on my MacBook using the trusty Bamboo tablet.
See you all back here tomorrow for another new sketch.
