I actually went nearly a year without getting a Baroness sketch at a convention.  I do get commonly requested GI JOE characters, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow and Baroness mostly.  In a very cool way though, the last 3-4 conventions I've had more lesser known Joe characters requested (Airtight, Alpine, SnowJob, the awkward Flint and Shipwreck High-5).

Even with the amount of times he's requested I don't think I could ever get tired of drawing Snake Eyes. I don't think I've ever been very good at drawing girl characters, it's taken a long time and quite a few stumbles along the way to even get to where I'm at. So despite my lack of confidence in drawing the Baroness, I still like to draw her. I think it's because she has such a distinct look that is lots of fun to try and capture her attitude.

Here is a 9x12 sketch of here from the Emerald City Comic Con. I still have a few more to take care of that I'm looking forward to completing!

  1. Love that Baroness piece. Makes me want one even more. That being said, all the commissions I've bought from you have been of girl characters and I think you do a fine job drawing them.

  2. Love the Baroness piece. I was planning on talikng to you at Joecon about a Baroness commision, with a twist, a Vargas style pinup to be used as the basis for the Nose art on a kitplane that I'm building.
