Welcome to the Shredder Redesign Challenge. All submissions must be posted by February 15th 11:59 p.m. EST Good luck!!!

Rules All people who choose to participate will have two weeks to come up with a redesign for the given character. You can use any medium you wish. You can sketch, paint make a 3-D model, make a sprite, make a custom action figure, whatever you want. Its entirely up to you!

As well, you don't have to force yourself to make your design conform to any new or old cartoon or comic book's style. Be as drastic in your redesign as you see fit. Whatever makes you happy.

If you can't think of a new design, or just hate the idea of working on this character, you do not have to feel obligated to participate in this particular challenge. You will still be free to participate in any future challenges you wish.

Shredder Background Shredder is the leader of the Foot Clan and is a master in Ninjitsu. He wishes to destroy Splinter and the Turtles along with his mutant henchman. He's cruel, heartless, and doesn't care about anyone but himself. He is covered in razor blades making him seem scary to attack. He's one of the Turtles' most feared and most toughest opponent.

EDIT: Also Shredder does not have to be human in the Redesign. You can make him as unique as you want!

What do you mean??? Is it like a splash page where two pieces of paper make one big picture? Or is it three different pictures?????

If its the SAME design just with three different illustrations then that is fine.
But if its different or varying designs then you can submit up to two designs but it will split you vote when people vote.

Here's mine! The colouring job was super quick, and I may re-do that and replace this file if time permits. But this gets the idea across.

http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2015/038/4/9/shredder_by_bryesque-d8gyqyt.jpg

Not reinventing the wheel or anything - just wanted to get away from the heavily-armoured, robotic-looking take we've seen more of in the 2000s and give him a kinda-classic but formal/regal look. I worried that the foot and elbow blades might be overdoing it, but I imagined them being totally removable and would just give him a few more, very specific options for bladed attacks.

And funny enough, my other idea was a Shogun armour design, but Creativemind's covers that nicely. :tsmile:

I drew this a while back, but I wanna share it. This is my Scotch-Korean Shredder. I originally thought him up during all the rumors during the early Early stages of the movie when all sorts of stuff was flying around about what the shredder would look like. So I just took a page from the Starburst contradictions commercials and drew this during a work break on a post-it note:

Chainmail in his helmet, hand-forged gauntlets, foot clan tartan and a classic 'poofy' shirt.

I don't think we have ever had anyone submit two or more sketches of the same design. You could always submit two different designs.

Yeah it is fine. This is a redesign challenge. You can submit all three as long as they are the same design.

Glad to see so many submissions. I am hoping to submit mine tomorrow. I am struggling right now :lol:

Here's my design it's a younger version of The Shredder, it's more of a tactical military design, this version is more of a grinder that handles his situation instead of sending his goons to do his work. These pieces were freehand no reference that I drew on my Note 3.

Damn, that is ridiculous how different yet familiar the design is.

Powder yours reminds me of Shao Kahn a bit. Shredder Kahn:lol: pretty badass as well. Also really like the more regal Shredders.

I have an idea I'm trying to get down on paper but so far I've scrapped 3 pages/attempts! Just can't get it down the same as is in my mind!

Hope to submit something before the end of the week!

You know how Shredder wore protective gear when he mutated Bebop and Rocksteady? What if he didn't...

Loving the redesigns, everyone! And good times for reviving this, Redeemer!

Well, here's my take: Super-Shredder.

The spikes are coming out of his skin. Doomsday meets Batman meets Wolverine I guess... Drawn with my two year old son's colouring in pens. Pic taken on my phone, hence blurriness.

Here's my effort. I have a coloured version, but it looks cr*p IMO so I'm just submitting the black and white version.

"Shredder is dead in this world, but for Splinter the nightmare continues..."

Cool thread!

I worked up a quick photo mockup of a more subdued, minimal design for ol' Saki. The base photo is a promo pic of Storm Shadow. I dug the more traditional ninja look with a modern spin. I was going back and forth on the helmet crown blades, but decided against them. The roughed in shape of the crown is still present, as is an interpretation of the metal mask.

I'm still not sold on the finger claw things.

Wonderful art of the Shredder.

But I have not had time to do my finished -
because I have been bedridden. (Sick)

I will try next time.

Hopefully next time.
I will create the voting thread tomorrow, if anyone wants to submit any last minute entries now is the time. If I do not see you submission in this thread when I create the voting thread you will be out of luck.
