Dave Rapoza's awesome TMNT portraits inspired me to do a realistic 'toad. I chose Pimple, since I always wanted to play as him but never could in the NES version of the game!

No plans to do another Battletoad or fan art in the near future. They're fun to work on when I'm in the middle of a big project but now that I have some more time I'd like to focus on my original characters!

I think the skin could be more shiny, for added slimyness. Other than that, hell yeah.

Toads wif teef!

But in all seriousness this is awesome and for what its worth I think its slightly better than Rapoza's work. His turtle's don't really look very turtly, but Pimple's still look quite toadly here.

Would this be a bad place for a 'totally tubular' line?
