RockSteady by SharpWriter RockSteady by SharpWriter
This piece is very special to me, since I was able to hold a pencil I've been drawing Ninja Turtle stuff. I can guarantee I wouldn't be the artist I am today if the TMNT, and my Mom (She's the one who got me the comics) had been around.

Since I'm going to the GDC, I want my portfolio to blow these developers away so I can get a job finally. I hope this and some other re-designs will do it. This is my take on Rocksteady, if you don't know who Rocksteady is I suggest you stop looking and this and read some TMNT lore.

This is the final illustration, I have concepts, Sketches and his accessories which will fill up the book I take with my art in it.

Enjoy

I thought the Wu Tang was just slightly out of place, but I guess realistically speaking if you were to take a street punk and turn them into a rhino, then yeah sure Wu Tang would be there.

I sincerely hope his other knuckles say 'DTH' or, perhaps a bit easier (if more literate), "DIE."

Regardless...Jesus Christ, man. This is awesome on levels that I can't even fully comprehend. Easy fav. If this doesn't get you a job, then I call conspiracy.

Wow, this is amazing! :D I really think that yes, this WILL blow GDC away once they see this in your portfolio. I love the textures you used. This brings back soo many great childhood memories. I was a big Ninjara/Raph fan. XD
