How to draw Rocksteady

For many, Rocksteady from the 1987-1996 animated TV series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, remains a memorable character. Starting off as a human gang member under the Foot and eventually mutating into a rhinoceros-human hybrid, Rocksteady’s journey is as intriguing as his unique appearance. If you’ve ever wanted to capture this character on paper, you’re in the right place. Discover how to draw Rocksteady with our detailed guide.

Key Features of Rocksteady’s Appearance:

  • Physique: Once a short, stocky man, Rocksteady transformed into a robust, rhino-human hybrid.
  • Outfit: Army camouflage pants that later transitioned to beige cargo pants. Occasionally donned an army helmet in his mutated form.
  • Companions: Always seen alongside his equally mutated partner, Bebop. Drawing both can add dynamism and context to your artwork.
  • Character’s Pose: Known for his brawny, aggressive posture, capturing his essence means giving him a sturdy stance.

If you’re looking to expand your TMNT collection, consider sketching other iconic characters from the series. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themselves, or even Rocksteady’s partner in crime, Bebop, could accompany your Rocksteady drawing, making it a part of a larger TMNT masterpiece.
