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.
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.
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!
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 !!!
