Ice-Terminator by Robert-Shane Ice-Terminator by Robert-Shane
I've been a fan of the rapper Ice-T for years - but I don't know what gave me the strange idea of drawing him as the Terminator! Perhaps next I'll draw Arnold Schwarzenegger as a gangsta rapper!

Anyway - here's Ice-T as I imagine him appearing in: 'Terminator In The Hood: Taking Out Wack Rappers'.

This is an entirely original piece - drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet.

Hope you like!

Thank you very much! If they re-make Terminator with Ice-T as the main character - we'll know where they got the idea from! :lol:

Thanks for that. I'm sure if this was from a Terminator movie - it'd have a few one-liners like that!
To be honest - it's just a generic '80s rapper. Kangol hats seemed pretty popular then - so I thought it would be a good 'visual shorthand' to respresent any 'wack rapper'.

ice t and cool j did "beef" in the 80's which is why i assumed it was him. either way still dope.

old school hip hop head and i grew up in los angeles in the 80's and 90's, so i've got an unfair advantage.

The hip-hop scene in 80s and 90s LA was the best it's ever been - so that must have been an interesting time for you? I've been an Ice-T fan for almost 25 years so remember the period with the Cool J beef well. You'll probably remember that a lot of older rappers around that time had problems with the 'new school' who were turning hip-hop into rap. I just didn't want to explicitly make this LL in case it upset any of his fans - hence the 'generic' look.

Brilliant.
Love the concept and you've really done Ice T justice with the likeness! Very cool!

Now you have mentioned it I want to see Arnie as a gangsta rapper :D

Thanks for looking and for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it as always. I don't usually draw 'real' people as I find that you take more time trying to get the face right than everything else in the picture - so it takes away the freedom you get from just drawing - but I'm glad you think it's a good likeness.

I hear you, I have caught myself in the same trap when drawing real people... I spend way too long trying to get the face looking right and it tends to make things worse.
