I created a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan character! 8D lol
His name is Caravaggio, and he's named after a lesser known renaissance artist - my favorite renaissance artist for that matter
His paintings were rather dark themed, at least in his use of colors, and apparently he also killed a man, so those two things inspired me to make a turtle that is of a darker sort of theme than the other four, more colorful looking turtles.
The idea for him was that he was in fact the fifth turtle, brother of Rafael, Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo. Thing is, from a very early age, the other turtles could tell Caravaggio wasn't like them.. Let's put it this way; if the four turtles were born to become Jedi, then Caravaggio would be born to become a Sith.
Anyways, they could tell there was something different about him, and he was eventually cast out of the group (possibly not long after Splinter found the five turtles and trained them, soon discovering the fifth brother wasn't pure of heart and stuff...
Anywho... Caravaggio found a new master, got ninja-training as well, but he kept thinking of ways to get revenge, mostly on Splinter..
So, yeah, that's what I have on him so far. I'm not going to make any comics or do anything serious out of this fan turtle thing, it was purely for the sake of challenging myself and have some fun with it
I might draw him again later though, because he's a fun guy to draw.
But, um... What do you guys think?
I'll upload the colored version of this right after this one's been uploaded, so stay tuned I guess...
