THE GREATEST TURTLE. An “Hour Drawing,” available to purchase here, and the 200+ set of them so far here. Subject suggestion for this one was “ninja turtle”. Last week, in the desert with a bunch of bros playing a game around a table, the question “who is the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?” was asked, and everyone at the table nodded sagely at how easy it was, and then half the table was aghast that everyone didn’t write “Raphael”, and the other half was aghast that it wasn’t “Donatello.” Although to be honest, the Donatello camp was slightly less aghast, of course. We Donatello lovers are a gentler breed. 
I should say I based this drawing largely on a picture of a TMNT toy I found online, which represented for me a pleasant middle ground between the original (awesome) character designs and the blobbier, simpler cartoon designs.
