Bio on "Rocksalt"

In the year of 2024, the land mass is torn and dark. During WWIV there was mass nuclear usage ionizing huge masses of radiation. A prisoner of war had a 90% consumption rate of the radiation causing his body to burn and morph. Luckily for him it serves as a benefit to this new world he knows as home. He now operates a junk yard, and his severe disfigured body has gained substantial muscle mass from the steroid injections served to reduce the radiation effects. His body accepted this change and became dependent on the vaccination and his body began evolving and producing this steroid Anadrol or (Oxymetholone). The burning of his flesh across his body broke down the molecules of the skin and fused with the sand of the area. Thus producing a sand paper like flesh, which is very rough and impenetrable. His extensor and flexor muscles of his right forearm have been so disfigured his hand has become part of large growth. Instead of a hand he has a large titanium ring inserted into this growth. From here he has a heavy duty chain used to pull large airplanes down runways during the wars. This chain acts as a weapon and a tool for his everyday activities. He also has a sweet tooth because of the steroid consumption, the structure of this steroid has high glycosides which causes another chemical dependency within his monstrous frame.
During research on this bio, I searched the measurements of radiation and how it reacts to the body and its tissues. Another, I looked up how steroid medicine and radiation for cancer patients works. I also looked at how sweet tooth dependencies start and become addictions, and how they can be linked to steroid uses. How some steroid structures have a sugar based compounds. Then the most potent type of steroid able to obtain large mass of muscle growth.

20 point thing-ma-bob.

Joe Madureira is an accomplished comic-book/ concept artist who has gone only through his high school of art and design in New York. Although his education is limited, he had acquired his internship in 1991, at the age of 16! His skill set is a wide variety of tools such as a keen eye on anatomy while influenced by manga and anime has gotten his name to be legendary. Through his work as a comic-book artist he was then taken into concept art for video games while he worked on his own comic series. One of his most memorable accomplishments was being named as one of the top ten most influential artist of the industry.

Mark Gibbons once attended art school, but dropped out to join a band. Also known as a "pencilsmith" he was grabbed up by a company named Games Workshop which created lots of table top action games, Mark scribbled out concept work across the board for all of their games. He then later got into video game concept art after the birth of the PS2. He worked on a game called "Primal" where he was the lead artist on that project. He has hopped around from freelance back to Games Workshop but it all led him to an amazing senior position at Blizzard Entertainment.

Blizzard Entertainment as we know it today has grown tremendously! It was founded in 1991 by three guys named Allen Adham, Michael Morhaime and Frank Pearce. Then the famed company was under the name Silicon & Synapse. It was then acquired some time later for $10 million. It has changed hands quite a few times but now has landed in the hand of Vivendi Universal Games. This hit company has produced Warcraft strategy game, Starcraft, Diablo, and World of Warcraft which is a multi-million player game across the planet. Blizzard is now able to create its own platform bases for games for online play. This is one monster of a company.
