Below you can see a few process videos. For this project I am drawing everything digitally in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos large tablet. If you want to learn more about my process for this project you can check out the "About the Art" section on the ABOUT page.

B.A.T.

079: “B.A.T.” G.I. Joe Series 5, 1986.

The B.A.T. (Battle Android Trooper) was one of my favourites for sure as a kid. I liked the idea that it was basically a robot, and also the design I thought was both cool and kind of scary to me. I think it was the hands. They seemed sort of skeletal and also I think brought images of that end scene of Terminator to mind as a youth.

Destro

018: “Destro.” G.I. Joe Series 2, 1983.

Destro was a pretty radical figure design with his chrome dome and deep-v bare chest! Yowza!

Baroness

033: “Baroness”. G.I. Joe “Real American Hero” Series 3, 1984.

YEP. Here she is. The BARONESS. Mama mia she was a spicy meatball, haha. She was the long-time love interest of DESTRO (Happy pre-Valentines Day, lovebirds) and she was also known for playing Destro and Cobra Commander against each other.

ALSO, an interesting fact from her dossier / file card is that she was “severely burned” during a Cobra night attack and she has “had extensive plastic surgery.” :O !!!
