Here’s the final five 2015 strips of the Casablanca/TMNT mashup webcomic, ‘ Everybody Comes To Raph’s by Mcwhitseen and I.

one day… Krang as Ferrari is just too fun not to draw.

Why? Because of my tmnt casablanca mashup tumblr:

I always feel like i don’t know what I’m doing, and I’ve been tinkering with this for days, now… but adding the offscreen light and brightening the colors really helped…
