I’ll be absolutely honest…I’ve been sitting on this artist’s post for several weeks now for a very specific reason. I came across the work of Dave Rapoza a while ago, but for a digital painting series that he was still working on that I absolutely went ape-shit over when I first saw it. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you are seeing correctly…Rapoza presents his rendition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that’s badder, sicker, and grittier than ever! This a tribute to all of those who grew up in the 80’s. I’m sure some of you may have seen one or two images from Rapoza’s set floating around the internet, but I had to wait until he was done to present his newly completely series as a whole, which is available in print format for purchase on his site.
Be sure to check out Rapoza’s site if you’re a fan of digital paintings. Not only does he have some cool “in progress” images and videos of his work from conception to completion, but he regularly holds live digital painting demos over livestream! Rapoza is currently based out out Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Did I mention Raphael is badass?
