G.I. Joe Characters: Featuring Snake Eyes

I love G.I.Joe. Growing up I collected all of the toys and played with them for hours. My brother collected the comic books and I looked at the pictures.

With the hype of the new G.I.Joe movie coming out in the summer of 2009, I thought it would be fun to create my own concept of the infamous Snake Eyes!

I have already started to model him but have not gotten very far yet. I will post updates along the way. For now, this is a concept, an idea. I have bigger plans for a short movie clip of him animated too.

Snake Eyes: A Commando with Ninja skills.

That is how I like to view him. Even his backstory tells us how he was a war hero first and later trains to become a Ninja with his brother-in-arms, Storm Shadow. I am not going to debate this, I just liked the idea of him being more “real” so I went with traditional army gear. However, since he has been trained to be a ninja, he keeps his weapons close to his body, each having a place that is quick to access. In this concept he wears traditional black army boots but that may change to something slightly more up to date.

The toy soldier is my guide for creating something more realistic in proportions. These toys are excellent reference for any character artist working on high resolution designs in zBrush!

Be sure to checkout the new G.I.Joe comic books published by IDW. I like their new character designs.
