I bought an issue of IDW's GiJoe a while back, and the leading characters in that issue were Snake Eyes and Helix( the woman). I did a quick sketch of a composition I liked and then went forward for the final image.
It ironically took me several passes and reworking the composition to get something I liked.
I have to thank Bernard Shepard for taking on the inks( especially since my pencils were heavy, complex and sometimes not totally plannd out) He did a great job- you can check out more of his work over at StudioRevolver.com.
After the inks were finished I also struggled with the colors as well, but in the last leg everything came together.
