Are you ready for another turtle from the hit cartoon series and feature movie? This time I will be showing you how to draw Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Raphael is the one that has the most steam bottled up inside. He wears a red bandana and uses a pair of Sai as his signature weapon which he knows full well how to use with expertise. This Mutant Ninja Turtle has a lot of troublesome issues bottled up inside that is still unexplained. Raphael has a rocky relationship with his brother Leonardo. He feels that he should be the group leader because he is stronger, and he also feels that he is wiser and could run the pack a lot better. Some would almost say that Raphael has unstable emotional problems to an extreme. He also has a very tough domineer and attitude toward almost everybody except his master Splinter. Splinter tries and explain to his other adoptive turtles that Raphael is a troubled soul and he must work out his emotions with mediation and a clear head. At times Raph lets his emotions take control over battling situations which at times leads him to get in trouble with Shredders gang. Raphael is also considered to be an anti social bad boy with a reputation to prove it. His intense fighting skills make him the lethalest and one of the most intense fighters out of the four. One individual he identifies with and is good friend of is Casey Jones, another bad boy that has a high temper when reckoned with. The two share common interest and they are at ease with each other when it comes time to communicate and lay down one and others problems. Even though he has constant conflict with his brother Leonardo, Raphael loves his family very much and he is also very protective of them. Out of all four Ninja Turtles, he is the most feared and favorited. I personally always liked his bad boy attitude and image because he reminds me of myself in a lot of ways. I think he reflects a lot of peoples hidden anger that they hold bottled up inside. To have a character that lets it all out when he is fighting is sort of refreshing. I know you will have a fun time drawing him out because I did. As a matter of fact I did him the best because I know he would come back and hunt me down if I didn’t make him look good. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw Raphael step by step with easy to understand instructions. I hope you have fun with this one and remember draw him good or else.
