A couple of days ago I doodled Don w/out his mask bc I love the idea that Don has dark under-eye circles/bags & he's self conscious about them, esp. as he gets older. Tonight as a break I finished it w/ new brushes as a sort of experiment. I'm mushy as hell abt RaphDon. XD
...and I swear us turt fans are in some magical hive-mind, bc I saw the screencaps posted by fowo__ on Twitter of the turts without masks recently but I hadn't shared this dood publicly. The mask-less Turtle thirst is shared and real.
(also feeling nostalgic tonight & listened to this while finishing this little experiment - I grew up listening to country, this came out in 1987. It's not my usual taste but it made me cry while coloring don't judge me okay?! Haha back to work on commissions!)
