Hello once again people I am back once again with my fifth drawing lesson of the day and believe me this next character is long overdue. For this next tutorial I will be showing you how to draw Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles step by step. Now Master Splinter as you may or may not know is sensei and sometimes a father figure to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Splinter is the one responsible for their training in Ninjutsu which he happens to be highly skilled in. There is many stories to how Splinter and the turtles came to be the size of humans and have the ability to talk and move like a human being could. The story that I am familiar with is how Splinter was forced to live in the sewers of New York City due to the death of his friend and master Hamato Yoshi. His master was slain by the hands of his enemy’s brother Oroku Saki because of a dispute between the two. When Splinter was in his cage he had exceptional intelligence and because of that he use to mimic his masters moves when he would practice Ninjutsu. After his friend and master was killed he found himself living in the sewer and came across four baby turtles and a green ooze. The ooze is responsible for the mutation made to all the turtles and Splinter. He named the youngsters after famous renaissance artist that were listed in a book he came across in the sewer. As they grew up they spent their time and lives living in an abandoned train station. Splinter grew old and became more like a father than a mentor. I always liked Splinter because he was very wise and skillful and always had an incredible amount of patience when dealing with his four turtle sons. This tutorial will show you how to draw one of the most famous characters ever created around the world. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became a phenomenon worldwide in very little time. As of today there is still an animated series that airs on 4Kids TV called TMNT. This lesson will show you how to draw Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles step by step. I hope you have a butt load of fun with this tutorial because I know I did. I will be back with my last drawing for the day in a bit.
