0012. Master Splinter

It's hard to pick just one of the four most famous mutant turtles in the world, but it's easy to recognize their patient, rat-bodied master, Splinter. From humble comic-book beginnings in 1984, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took America by marketing storm, to this day still releasing movies and toys based on the franchise. Poor Splinter never gets his name in the title, despite teaching them everything they know.


  1. Bob Ross and Master Splinter two of my childhood idols in a roe. Just wanted to add that these all look awesome. What kind of water color paper do you use? The slight differences in the values where the paint builds up is really nice, adds something to the character of the portraits.

  2. I use Arches cotton, cold pressed paper. Thanks for taking the time to leave these nice comments, Z!
