Raphael oils by ChristopherStevens Raphael oils by ChristopherStevens
The second of my turtles paintings. Going to try something a little different with each. These guys are still a blast to draw. I get so much nostalgia when I work on these.

This has a great Frazetta dynamic going on.

This is gorgeous and I think the oils really compliment the textures in the subject. The joy it exudes is undoubted - especially since it's a very mutual feeling among the people commenting here! ; D

Love the texture on Raph's hide. Totally digging the darkened and muted red and greens as well. Awesome stuff!

I love this, the TMNT movie should have used this design instead.

Great stuff, Chris. definitely your own interpretation, but it honors the "classic" version of the Turtles, rather than all of these modern permutations...

Can I say there is a Corben mood in the shades and textures? Fantastic, by the way.

This looks like some awesome art I'd get on a trading card. Love the classic feel to it, I really like the kind of 'mood' lighting you have in this one; has a dramatic feel that I associate with the original Turtle comics. Very cool.

:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014
Thanks. Yeah, the comics are what I really know of the turtles, so my inspiration for them comes from that source. It shows a lot in this piece moreso than the first. I was going for something new with that one.

The composition on this is utterly fantastic. I love the attention the sai gets with its downward angle; the muscle response in his hand and forearm are excellent. Love what you do, sir.
