Bebop & RockSteady

if you like it and wanted it for yourself check it out here

Hey Guys and Gals!  Today I present you with my illustration of Bebop and RockSteady! This also the second submission for eirtakon.  I love the older Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and was a bit confused when Bebop and RockSteady were not put in the second film.  I am really happy to see that there apart of the new tmnt 2 film.  the first one was garbage but I'm praying the second one will be a good watch and if its great.  Lets just pretend that first one didn't happen.  The Next thing I'll work on will be anime themed so watch out for that ;) Now back to the break down.

1. Rough

I started to with a rough the was the last rough I worked on for like 5.  I was trying to get Rocksteady's pose to look like the actor WWE Sheamus, he poses with his arms spread like a cross. But I couldn't get it to look nice.  But its fine, for Bebop I posed him as if he's  spiking up his fabulous Mohawk.

2. Flat color

After the rough was done I build up all the shapes for the colors so a had a bulk of the color done.

3. Background sign

After finishing the colour I worked on extra detail and added Line on the inside of the characters.  Also worked on a logo behind the characters.  I simply a cool neon coloured sign of Bebop and Rocksteady's name also put the foot clan symbol in between the names.  I also added dirt because there both bad ass and I was close to making Rocksteady's name made out of stone, but it blended to well with the Characters Skin.  I really wanted to purple and yellow to really stand out as much as possible.

4. Final Render

Finally I added some extra lighting to both the characters from the light of the Sign.  I also added more shine to bebops hair and glasses and sparkles to the mohawk.  Also added the spikes and the line art with done mostly freehand, hours and hours waisted getting it just rite, but I'm supper happy how well it turned out.  I might make another with the turtles themselves later on.

Anyway thanks so much again for checking out the break down, stay tuned for more random art here or on the links below.

We Love SpringTrap

Hey Guys and Gals today I present you "We Love SpringTrap" its is My fanart illustraton of SpringTrap from Five Nights at Freddy's 3 game.  At Eirtakon I was asked for afew more of the other characters that people Love and SpringTrap was the most asked out of all of them lol so I spent the last 3 months working n my spare time of this one.  This was by far the hardest character to get looking right.  I spent a lot of time getting a Nice mix between stills and the jumscares them selves.
here is a small breakdown of the illustration.

1.  Rough
I started with a really scribbley version of the character,  In SpringTraps back story the audio says he was found in one of the old abandoned restaurants behind a brick wall.  So I wanted to do the pick like they were breaking down the wall and find SpringTrap learing out of the broken wall. covered in little easter eggs from the game.


 After finishing the rough I wourked on making a full version of SpringTraps body for possibly another animation maybe. and also maybe an alternative version of of the design where you can see the full body.  Each body part is separated into different folders and in each folders there broken up into all the different shapes.  I made the characters folder a little see through so u can see the layers underneath.

3. Final Render.

After I had finished the character I worked on masking springtrap behind the brick wall and I added a Banner and the Paper Plate in front as the easter egg, Im not too sure but I think that that this paper plate kinda represents Springtrap so it would make sense it would be close to where springtrap is hiding.  I also added a greenish tint shading to the character and a strong yellow light to make him look more golden.  I wanted the colour palette to  be mostly Yellow, green, Red and Purple.  The purple represents the purple guy how is possibly the killer in the game and the red is danger and also just flesh to show there is more to SpringTrap the you see.

anyway thank you all for checking out the break down there will be another illustration coming out very soon. So please stay tuned :)
