Rocksteady by cool-slayer Rocksteady by cool-slayer
Back when both me and :iconpunkbox: submitted our Krang deviations, we got talking and we came to the conclusion that Rocksteady would be another cool TMNT character to have a crack at.

So it took a while longer than I though, but I finally managed to finish my take on Rocksteady, and here it is. I tried to keep it on a similar style to the Krang pic, but I think I should have drawn him a little less angry and maybe a little more stupid haha :lol:

I hope you guys like it! And keep your eyes on :iconpunkbox: page, you don't want to miss his Rocksteady!

Rocksteady! Wow That kicks mad arse! I especially love that you kept his helmet on...I hated when on the cartoon back in the 1900's, he only wore his helmet for like, his first three appearances!

The helmet was cool and I don't know, I just really liked it on good ol' Rocksteady, so it wasn't even a question, I had to include it :) I'm very glad you liked this!

Excellent. The neon pink light coming from the side was a nice addition. So incredibly 80s. Excellent version of Rocksteady too. I like it.

Yeah, I'm trying to give these Turtle villains drawings a little 80s/early 90s flare. I guess the semi-obnoxious colors bother some people, but I kinda like them and I'm glad you liked them too :) I like their cheesyness, so to speak. Thanks so much, Dan!

P'sha! I think the only people it would bother are those with no flair for nostalgia.

Haha.
Oh god. You've gone all TMNT and retro on us these days.
The first thing I noticed was his teeth. They really cracked me up because of their enormity.
I don't think you should've decreased his intelligence any more than what you have already. His pose, the colours, and the ginormous teeth are enough to make his biceps look ridiculous.
Those sweat beads are also a very humorous addition

Yeah... you know how these things go. You draw one guy, then you think it'd be cool to draw another one, and the thing goes on and on :lol: me and ~PUNKBOX will probably draw Bebop next, but I'm working on something to submit in between so I don't make my watchers sick of having their inboxes flooded with turtle fanart.
I'm really glad you liked it! I thought making him this beefy would make him look a bit dumb too, so I'm glad you agree. I had a lot of fun, especially drawing his face, the enormous teeth and all haha Thanks so much!

Cowboy Bebop? Ha. Such a strange turn from the blinding 80s florescence to the early Japanese anime. Looking forward to seeing your take of it though

not Cowboy Bebop (although I should get around to doing some fanart of it sometime... hmmm), just Bebop, Rocksteady's friend. You should remember him, he's like this sort of warthog with glasses and red converse :D But I don't know when I'll get around to it. I'm thinking of drawing something from the Big Lebowski next...

I just bought Big Lebowski dvd not that long ago too. Looking forward to seeing your fart piece

thanks so much! I was a little hesitant to throw it in, but I thought it'd give it a 80s/90s vibe and that's what I wanted, so I'm glad you liked it - especially because your use of color always kicks ass :)

Great take on the big dummy he looks like he's ready to step on some turtles ( but we know he cant even get close).

I've laid out my pencils just need to clean it up and splash some color, But you know Watchmen is out today i might not get a chance to finish it up till saturday i gotta catch that flick ;)

Great piece definite +Fav

haha thanks so much, I'm glad you liked it! It's being a lot of fun reviving these old characters, right? I loved the little detail of the key chain on yout Rocksteady, I think I forgot to mention that on the other comment... :D

By the way, what did you think of Watchmen?
Reply
:iconpunkbox:
PUNKBOX Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009
heck yeah its been fun. What i thought of Watchmen, Well first off i have to mention that I've never seen let alone read a Watchmen comic before the movie. I enjoyed it very much the characters were very cool the action was great the designs were great the only thing that bothered me is Dr. Manhattan
Seriously I would have spewed soda through my nose had I been drinking any
I don't think that the blue Thingama'bob was necessary lol I think every one reacted that way though, do they show that in the comics?? my favorite character was the Comedian but the Owl design was the coolest i think the chick was smoking hot and Roarshack* was a wild man, they were all great!!
surprise ending what more could it have been? i don't know i give it to Fantastic Rounhouse Kicks! :)

cool-slayer Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha cool. I loved the movie, but I was wondering what someone who didn't read the comic would think, so it's cool to hear your opinion on that. I agree on almost everything, except Dr. Manhattan, since I was already expecting him to be naked all the time... because yeah, he is naked in the comic. Occasionally he has a little thong (like he had on the Vietnam part lol), and a suit when he goes to Eddie's funeral, and the TV interview, but most of the time he is naked and just letting it hang. I think it's supposed to show his further detachment from the rest of humanity, as he separates from our regular conventions, such as wearing clothes and all.
But yeah, my favorite was Rorschach but the Comedian was also spot on. The action was great, the story was great, and it was a kick ass adaptation... I'm probably seeing it again next weekend.
