Popular Twitch streamer ‘Dr DisRespect’ has revealed his own themed concept skin that he would like to see added to Fortnite: Battle Royale.
The electrifying internet personality tweeted out a personalized pickax design at Fortnite, calling the idea “a multi billion dollar” skin.
While Fortnite has never directly acknowledged there to be any affiliation between its in-game skins and content creators, they have added several items that have been deemed to be themed after popular streamers.
The ‘Plunja’ pickax was designed for Fortnite extraordinaire Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins while the [+] ‘Positivity’ emote was made to pay homage to ‘CDNThe3rd.’
Now, Dr DisRespect wants to get in on the fun, and this is the themed pickax skin he tweeted to Fortnite.

The skin features several classic elements from the Doc’s brand, including the black and red bands on the handle, and a steel black comb that the streamer occasionally flashes out on stream to maintenance his massive mustache.
Although the Doc does not give credit to anyone in his tweet, it appears that the design was originally created by Danny Dufford on Twitter, who posted this time-lapse of the process in the comments section as proof.
Thanks for all the love! The good thing about Procreate on the iPad is that it lets me export the process video. Here’s an exclusive, never before seen look into my quick design process from ugly sketch, to ugly color study, to better sketch, to final. (For more proof) pic.twitter.com/lFCCzyqBAi

Whether or not the Doc will get his own pickax in Fortnite remains to be seen, but it was definitely worth a try on his part.
After recently demanded his own personalized skins in another popular Battle Royale title, PUBG, he was given several weapons skins within a matter of days.
