Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
I've been wanting to draw the turtles without their masks on for a while and it's not as simple as you might think it is. You start off and draw them turtles as normal and then remove the masks but then it sort of unbalances their faces and you have to account fo how it affects lighting and shadow on their faces. Their skin absorbs the light very differently to the fabric in their masks. I really enjoyed doing this picture though. And I decided to do the old fashioned photograph grain because I figured if this was a family photo, they and Splinter probably wouldn't have the most advanced digital camera going.
