Raphael’s Character Highlights

  • Mask: Raphael’s signature red mask is his standout feature, with long and flowing ends that extend backward.
  • Shell: The toy’s shell is slightly exaggerated in size and carries significant details, including battle scars and wear.
  • Stance: Even in toy form, Raphael exudes a strong and dynamic stance, symbolizing his fiery spirit.
  • Companions: When sketching Raphael, consider adding Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo to create a complete TMNT set.

Understanding the Guide’s Structure

Drawing can be a meticulous process, and to ensure clarity, we’ve incorporated a color-coding system in our guide:

  • Red Color: This represents the current drawing step, guiding your pencil in the right direction.
  • Black Color: Highlights the lines you’ve already mastered in the previous steps.
  • Grey Color: This shows the basic proportions sketch, ensuring your drawing maintains its scale and balance.

The guide includes 10 crucial steps. Begin with light strokes in the first two stages to establish a foundational sketch. Once you’ve reached the end, opt to ink your sketch if desired. Ensure you let the ink dry thoroughly before gently erasing the initial pencil lines to reveal a clean, polished drawing.
