So I'll post this one and one more Joe related sketch, and then I've got 4-5 superheroes to post up. After that though, I still have a backlog of GI Joe commissions to get to, and we'll probably jump right back in to "Joe-A-Day" until those are all completed!
Here's a Serpentor leading the troops for today's cover sketch. I have another Serpentor to do, but that's more of the late 90's Devil's Due design. Which I also liked, and it's quite a bit different, so I don't mind doing them so close together. I also wanted to mention that this request was specifically supposed to be similar to the 300 movie poster with King Leonidas and the Spartans behind him. So if the composition looks vaguely familiar, I wasn't just hoping to pass this off. It was specifically requested. I like the idea, and I think it's appropriate. In general, I have a harder time getting the same kind of intensity or energy in a commission when the composition is dictated to me. At the same time a customer has every right to get the drawing they want, and some have a very specific thing in mind. I don't mind working on commissions where the composition is directed, but it can be confining at times.
