Cobra Annual 2012 cover

Introducing the new Cobra Commander ;)

I wont spoil it, but the news is online and this image hit USAToday's website along with the following article (be warned, it does reveal the new Commander, so lets keep that quiet for those that dont want to know till they read it eh!) The book comes out tomorrow...

Lineart by Robert Atkins :iconratkins:, great new design from Robert and Hasbro working together on it.

Colours by myself, 2099 :D

Loved getting this one, Great design so it was pretty easy to get this finished up as fast as I could.

Hope you like it guys :D

Cheers and Rad!

I've always been a little peeved at the center 'ridge' down the mask of the original CC. I like the idea of a smooth 'mirror' mask that makes your enemies see themselves. This helmet is a good step in the cool design direction.

Very nice. What is the texture you used for the background / floor on this one? Scanned gesso?
Reply
:iconspidermanfan2099:
spidermanfan2099 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012
Thanks dude. Same old 'vintage texture that I rely too heavily on all the time' haha, I scanned a few bits way back and mixed them with some google finds, and now its like I cant get away from it, i'd call it my signature look, but everyone does it ;)

Ha ha. I know that feeling full well. I'm still using a scan of a shirt I lost nearly 7 years ago. I need to use something for a grubby floor though and don't know what to do. Been using the texture of rough cartridge and sugar paper up 'til now.

I usually mix up alot of my textures and just play with em alot, tweaking the levels and saturation and then seeing what layer property works best on the image. I've gotten used to only needing about 4 textures now haha, even though I must have about 250 stored in a file.

Just got a few copies of Dr Wtf for my con appearance next week, your cover for that was so nice man... looks great in print! :)

Cheers, bud. I've not seen it myself. I'll have to order a copy from O.

I've got a tonne of textures myself but never use them. I can't find any that I like. Other than an old linen shirt which I use for a denim texture.

The costume looks badass, and his pose is badass.

Let's face it, this Cobra Commander is certainly more awesome than ever now.

Dual pistols? (Gun kata?)
