Throttle by JoshSummana Throttle by JoshSummana
I decided to 're-paint' Throttle from Biker Mice From Mars :P

It brought back a lot of memories from my childhood when I was looking up pictures and things for references on his earring etc to get it right :P

Apparently in the later episodes they started changing his glasses to a more visor-like hence the reason I went with this glasses shape :)

It was a pain doing all the fur but I got there eventually lol :) Pretty happy with it considering I'm not really used to painting fur/animals (not that this is realistic in terms of animals lol) :P.

Took around 13 hours on and off.
Done on a cintiq in photoshop
Hope you guys like :)

This is awesome. As you can tell by my profile pic i'm a fan, i even have a biker mice tattoo. :) One thing is missing though, the antennae on his head, he looks odd with out it.

woooooooow I hadn't thought of Biker Mice from Mars in a LONG time! I loved that cartoon! Vinnie was my favorite of the three xD You did an amazing job with the fur! that's a crazy amount of detail, there. I'm so glad that someone else remembers this old ass cartoon that never got a lot of popularity.

yeh vinnie was pretty awesome! I was gonna do him, but I thought I better do the main character as it was my first 'mouse'/animal I had properly attempted. I will probs do them all eventually :P Im working on another nostalgic character as I type this :P

I think I remember seeing Biker Mice From Mars, but not on the TV - on Youtube or someplace. Looks like an interesting show - wish I had grown up with it.

And you should be so proud for working so hard on the fur - because it was really worth it! Throttle looks very realistic! Great job. I was shocked when I noticed I'm the only one to comment so far D:

Mice on motorbikes for the win - I'll have to try and watch that show when I have some more time.

And you should be happy with the result C: Throttle looks so fluffy~
