Blast from the Past #677: Sketchbook page 21, inked drawing of new ideas for Raphael

On page 21 of the sketchbook, I did this more finished piece showing some ideas for Raphael's new look, including a chain belt and thigh-strap holders for his sai, as well as some physical manifestations of his new mutation.

For some reason, when I look at this drawing I feel a deja vu, like I've already posted it, a couple of years ago. But I can't remember for sure. -- PL


  1. Hi I remember reading somewhere that one of the turtles changed its name at the last minute because it sounded too different from the others. I believe it was a favourite sculptor of either you or Eastman. Do you remember what it was?

    1. That story sounds somewhat apocryphal to me, as I can't remember ever having such a discussion when we were naming the Turtles. So... not impossible, but in my opinion unlikely. -- PL
