G.I.JOE 'Frontline'

This was a big commission piece I finished last year, an older lineart from Robert Atkins :iconratkins: that was sent over by a private client. I had to do 2 versions of this, the second variant involved the 2nd round colours from the released figures (I'll post that later). I had to go off the original card art and special requirements of the client for this one, took me a while to get round to doing it, and to finally finish it up... I think I was on this for 3 days straight, a few changes and things afterwards, but all went well :D

I've got a Cobra version to do soon too, though that'll be a while yet!

So yeah, here's Nunchuk, Beachhead, SnakeEyes (and Timber), Shockwave and Torpedo in their original get ups! And in the bg, 2 of the older toy vehicles, the Snowcat and the Wolverine. Had to watermark it, sorry folks, and its ALOT smaller than the 4ft wide it was originally (600dpi, massive file, actually slowed my computer down, and that was a first!)

Lineart by :iconratkins:, you can check out his blog here too...

Colours by me :D

Hope you guys like it ;)

Rad!

This is awesome! didnīt remembered Nunchuck 'till now! He was part of that "Ninja Force" team Snake-Eyes and Storm-Shadow had, right? Now I remember the other guys like T'jbang, Dojo and Banzai (this one was really cool)!!! and also the "revamped" versions of Zartan and Scarlett! Wow! what memories! hehe!
and good ol' Shockwave!!! That guy was one of my faves! I remember having that figure as a "Night Force" version too I believe! Pretty cool! Awesome job man! :dance:

My two favorite Joes were Beachhead and Shockwave. I still remember getting the original Beachhead in the "Action Force" packaging in Kenya when I was like 3 years old.

Nice work on this, Simon!
