Raphael by monstrous64 Raphael by monstrous64
This is a redesign I did of Raphael of the ninja turtles. I wanted to make him look more like something that crawled out of the sewer.

Wow. Scary stuff! Raph is supposed to be cool not so scary... Are those pitchforks he got!?

Best more favorable redesign of Raph. Others I've seen are either too scary, too weird and not enough 50/50 balance of a creature being man and turtle (too much chin, not enough beak, no tiled skin or too much terrapin features and not enough man features).

How you did the design is right (the 50/50 balance and that's rare). This is how they should really look in the new movie (and in general).

Very cool!

One thing... weren't his weapons supposed to be sai?  I don't know if you intended for this, but they look kind of like large forks rather than sai...

I love those rubber tire knee pads... so boss, so genius, so original!  Wouldn't want to run into this guy in a sewer!

Pretty sure the broken pitch forks are supposed to be makeshift sais.

I don't know whether he intended for that or what.  If they were supposed to be pitchforks that he used like sai, then I could understand that.

i love this. so effin epic very nice job. like many before me have said the detail is really nice lovin the knee pads. my favorite part is the use of the bandanna. Really different but still works and makes raph look totally vicious! You should deffinietley do all 4 of the ninjas maybe even splinter.

When I saw the knee pads I knew I had to fave this. That's just genius. The rest of the redesign is awesome too, but that detail made it for me.
