Snake Eyes from "that picture"

I don't know what the reference pic here is... a poster? A comic cover? I couldn't find any info... but I wanted to make a custom of it since I first saw it. When the Retaliation wave 1 Snake Eyes came out I could tell it was based on the pic... so I tweaked it and viola!













Repainted visor and belt:

Great job! The pic is from an issue of G.I. Joe:Reloaded, a short-lived series put out by DDP that was a "re-boot" of the Joes in a modern setting. It had a smaller cast, and some interesting twists on the mythos. Some liked it, others hated it.

Also a Tim Bradstreet artwork. A nice piece to base your custom off of.

Your custom is very accurate
Well done
But maybe you need to add what looks like a knife of his right shoulder

I thought so too, but then looked closely at the pic and determined that's not a knife, it's the hand rail to the stairwell in the background.

Wicked! Didn't they mate a POC version very similar to this? Also I think it is a knife, otherwise the handrail would continue behind him?
