Arcade Classic Reboot - Rolling Thunder

The other day a friend of mine and I were going on a little nostalgia trip thinking about old school arcade games. One game we both agreed on was Rolling Thunder. The problem was that when I googled it the character was nowhere near as badass as I remember or indeed as he deserved to be. So I thought it high time he has a make over. Also one of the key things I remembered was the pink and green palette, turns out this iconic colour scheme was reserved for the henchmen, so I thought I'd try and bring that to his sartorial redesign.

I really enjoyed this one, not only the character but the whole treatment. Got me thinking of other characters that were over due a reboot. Watch this space.

Christ!, I remember that game, a shinobi type clone. Love the retro design and the subtle texture that really adds class and polish to this piece. Looking forward to where you go with this interesting project.
