I present to you Snake-Eyes, inspired by the IDW Transformers/GI Joe 2003 crossover. I loved the look of this run of books and thought it only fair to pay homage to this version SE as I work on a multitude of other SEs seen in my SE Custom thread.
At first I was hesitant to go all black with him, and the tone of the book made it hard to tell at times. I thought black sweater and drab pants would be perfect, but all black eventually won over.
I started with Firefly's torso as a base and kept the basic SE upper legs. For the lowers I wanted a look that was baggier than that of the standard SE so I snagged a set from Flint. The arms and jacket were the trickiest part for me. I spent most of my time in the toy aisles looking at Indiana Jones German soldiers, but I didn't really like any of theirs. I eventually stumbled across a Star Wars comic pack with Cade Skywalker and his long coat was perfect. I repainted it solid black and then went back in and dirtied it up along with his legs and hands.
The sword is from Trigate and was layered from silver to rust and back to a silver to make it look old and weathered. The helmet is fully removable and also started silver to weathered black and back to a silver wash. Some images I have the helmet was sliver so I didn't want it flat black. With luck, I had a black pistol from teh comic pack Shipwreck that must have been silver and painted black so it already looked nice and beat and was perfect for him.

I really liked that series too, I'm not normally a massive fan of Jae Lee, but it was a really nice change of pace for both companies.

Very good work. I admit I have not seen the comic crossover but I saw the cover arts in another website and they look extremely sharp, I was so tempted to buy these books......
