[Sidetracked] Raphael: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series

  Helloooooo 2015!  My first post of the year, and here's to hoping for many more and more frequent postings!  Sadly, my freedom that is Winter Break from classes ends tomorrow! ;___;  I plan to post and share more on the blog this year as part of my personal resolutions.  I really enjoy blogging and will do my best to make more time for my lonely blog!  (This involves actually posting niche blog related things,  ya know like... I don't know makeup!? LOL - There is a real lack of beauty things here! ;___; I apologize!)  I also wanted to do my best to make more time for art; it's a huge stress reliever for me and I genuinely missed letting the creative juices flow.  

  For my first post of 2015, I am pleased to finally share the final and last installment of my drawing series for TMNT.  I was quite pleased with this drawing, and only wish that my camera phone picked up my detailing better.  I apologize for the quality, I'm in the works of getting myself a proper scanner!  So without further ado, please enjoy my last installment of TMNT, Raphael!

  You may find the picture I used for reference here. I used VSCO Cam to edit these photos a bit to help the lines and shading show up better.  I have been using Sakura Micron pens in various sizes for inking, a mechanical pencil for sketching, tortillions for shading and blending, and 2B and HB graphite pencils by Derwent for shading.  For the color, I have been using Prisma Color pencils. I have been really enjoying all the tools I've been using for some time, and would definitely recommend them to any artists or sketchers out there. ^.^b  

  I'm fairly new to the Sakura Micron pens, but I do love their ink flow and the control I have on my lines.  My only grip is I run out of ink quite quickly after a few drawings, but I suppose if you consider the amount of inking I'm doing, it's pretty expected.  They are also quite affordable!  I've found all my tools at Michael's.  I have also used Derwent pencils for years, since middle school and I will always continue using them for sketching and shading!  Very nice quality pencils.

That's it for my first post for 2015, and I hope you all enjoyed that last drawing.  I plan to begin a new fanart series for Sailor Moon; I was pretty inspired because of the re-release Crystal Series.  I've loved Sailor Moon since I was like 10, and it always brings back good childhood memories of waking up extra early in the summer at 8am to catch the original series on TV.  I've been keeping up with the release on Crunchyroll.  

Are you a fan of Sailor Moon?  What other shows bring back memories for you?  Let me know in the comments below!  I would love to hear your thoughts and if you have suggestions, I'd love to check them out!

Until my next post, I'll catch you all then!  Thanks again for sticking with me and my little blog for another year, I hope you'll continue to return! ♥ To all my close blogging friends (you know who you are), here's to 2015 and more blog posts together!!!
