I am new here, but a long time G.I.JOE fan.
I am Concept artist, and Illustrator. One of the games I worked on was G.I.JOE Battleground. I worked as a senior concept and production artist on the title for its entire run, designing and drawing characters, concepts, themes and tiled maps. It is a matter of pride for me that I designed how the characters looked, and what background they appeared in. I am proud of the fact that I designed 99% of all the legendary cards on GIJOE-BG. And that I Hasbro loved my designs of Billy, Firewall, Robot Cobra Commander and Cobra Dusty. Previously all card designs had to be based on toys, but after submitting these concepts, Hasbro gave a resounding approval and relaxed its rule and allowed us the expanded universe of cartoons and comics.
Now, that I no longer work for DeNA, I am finally able to show off the art of G.I.JOE Battleground.
All in all I drew around 115+ characters, and designed around 200+ more.
One of my main jobs was line artist, my line work had changed more than over the course of the time I was on the title, while earlier it was tight and a bit graphic, as time progressed, it became looser and a bit sketchy. Hence the variation in the style of line-work between the characters. ( Colour Artists like Jarreau Wimberly coloured my line art into something truly beautiful)
All characters were done digitally, on Cintiq and Photoshop.
Here are some of the characters that I drew. (I'll post more concepts and sketches if people want to see)
I hope to post more. - See more at: ATOMIC HERMIT: G.I.JOE Battleground line Art

Outstanding work! This is what should be on the cardbacks. I love the classic and modern looks on a lot of figures. The Cobra Officer drawings are really great! I hope we can see some Cobra Commander ones!

Agreed with everyone else: the art was why I kept playing the game. It was just fantastic.

I don't play games like these, but the art almost got me in, just so I could see as much of it as possible. Thanks so much for your amazing contributions!
I gotta add: I'd die to see a cartoon with your style. Everything is just so crisp and faithful. Comic book, too. Why not art/costume design a movie!?
Usually everyone wants to make their mark doing something new. Doing the old thing "right" is underappreciated and undervalued, IMO.
