Childhood hero

Alright so i figured yesterday that my main idea for the this months post is taking me a little longer to crack, so on the odd chance that it takes me a little longer to figure out than the months deadline here's something I knocked out this morning.

I think I was only kid to prefer Leo over Raph, I just thought he was the best. and when i thought about it as I was drawing this, there are some Leo and Spidey character similarities, that maybe the reason why I love both those guys. But if anyone ever aks i'll say its cause Leo had swords! :)

Tried something new with this as well. I like  the ink spatter and roughness of it all  i reckon ill do more of these in the future and also go on to take em a lot further, watch this space.

The other post im working on is obviously Spidey (there's no way I'd be leaving him out), he'll be done in a different style alltogether

Go check out the rest of the posts under the same title here

You weren't the only kid. Leo was the beast and he could beat Raph any day

Awesome! n Yes fuckin' anyday! did u see the revamp of Leo's character in the 'newer' series? really good Leo went awol, scarred himself for life in a fight (missing a piece of his shell) got kinda dark after, i really liked it.
