Have you ever wanted to create a Ninja Turtle head? Well, I did and it turned out great! I made a Ralfiel head and it is one of the coolest things I have made, even though it is my first time making a 3D model. Now, enough about me, lets get to the building!

## Step 1: Begining

The first step to building a Ninja Turtle head is getting a 41mm by 41mm by 40mm, green sphere. You can choose any size you want, as long as it's spherical.

Next get a 43mm by 43mm by 8mm red (REGULAR) tube, or any color you want. Then use a square to change the workplane so it is vertical. Then move the tube so that it is aligned with the sphere and is a bit above the center of the sphere. Then change the workplane so that it's below the sphere. After that, move the tube into the sphere, so that it is equal on all sides.

To start the mask tails use the square to move the workplane, so that it is vertical. Then get another square and make it a rectangle with a volume of 25mm by 4mm by 8mm, and duplicate it. Then rotate them 90 degrees, and line them up to the head.

## Step 4: Mask Tails Cont.

Next we will combine the tails with the mask. First separate the tails by 7mm. Then move them into the mask, but make sure that they are aligned! Second, rotate them 40 degrees away from each other. Finally the knot. Get a red 9mm by 6mm by 2mm half sphere and do the same, steps to the half sphere as in step 3.

## Step 5: Eyes

To start making the eyes, we need to get another half sphere and turn it black. Then we shrink them down to a volume of 3mm by 2mm by 2mm, to make it oval. Then follow the steps on step 3. When you are done with that get a bright green thin torus, and follow the steps, in step 3 again, but make the torus a bit bigger. Then get another thin torus and make it white, then follow the steps in step 3 once again.

## Step 6: Mouth and Brow

Next is the mouth, don't worry, you are almost done! Get a normal white torus and change the work plane so that it is vertical, and move the torus up or down to your liking, and then move the mouth in and out to your liking. Next is the brow, get a green roof and follow the steps in the 3rd steps, but flip it upside down so that the point is facing down and then pat yourself on the back, cause you are done!
