Raphael by KomodoEmpire Raphael by KomodoEmpire
Okay, so a few years back someone asked me if I could paint like the masters. So, in my typical irreverent fashion I showed them I could. Of course I had to add my own flair to it now didn’t I? One of my favorite master works was the Cherub by Sanzio Raphael. Of course I also love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so naturally I had to take full advantage of the play on Raphael’s name, especially since the turtle is named after Sanzio. So one blazing hot summer day I sat down an diddled out this watercolor on primered chipboard I fondly titled ‘Raphael.‘ I hope you enjoy it.

So funny. It'd be cool to see all the ninja turtles as parodied fine art pieces ;)

Ye, she thought it was as awesome as I did! She did a similar thing - painting Goofey (the Disney character) in the style of Caravaggio. Your gallery is just filled with awesome.
