i can't believe i did a comic ahaha i didn't sleep all night so i could finish this -_-
always wanted to draw turtle tots :D ahh it was worth it <3

i know there's already a lot of art on how raph got spike. most of them that he found him in a sewer and resued him. but my theory is that splinter gave spike to him.
i think raphie has trouble expressing his feelings with words cuz he feels like others will judge him. so splinter gave him a pet for their birthday so he'll have someone to talk to UvU
raph's a little upset at first since he wanted a toy but soon finds out his new friend is much better.

also made raph the smallest ;D i don't know why but i have this feel that he was short when they were little but then he suddenly grew and got all buff XD
also gave them a bunch of scarfs and other clothing because splinter doesn't want them sick UvU
and donnie gets legos cuz i think they're perfect for him. idk i just always imagine him playing with legos XD

line art is done traditionally with a black marker.
colored in photoshop

This is so sweet. I love the idea of this being Spike's origin.

It would make snice for Spike to be a tortoise. Turtles need to go underwater to sallow their food. but tortoises grow up to be the size of a large dog after a few years. so I have no idea cartoon logic I guess

What if the reason splinter got Raph a turtle was to teach him love so that he wouldn't grow up full of rage and he wouldn't betray his brothers like what happened between splinter and shredder 
Fihuli's avatar
I don't think betrayal was on Splinter's mind when the turtles were still little kids. And I personally think Raph would be the last one to betray the clan. He's super loyal although a hothead. But taking care of a pet definitely softens a person's heart :)
