GI Joe - Mirror Universe by thebobguy GI Joe - Mirror Universe by thebobguy
What if...?
Mirror universe
Twisteroo

Whatever you wanna call it. An alternate version of GI Joe, where the two sides switch characters. So, Cobra Commander becomes the leader of GI Joe, and is now Commander C., Gung Ho is now a Dreadnok, and so on.

Anyhoo, just a fun little exercise, I'm pretty happy with most of them (except Baroness). Sure, some of the colors are 'meh', but whatever! I'm just glad I finally finished it.

Obviously, I tried to remain pretty faithful to the overall designs, mostly trying to change colors. Granted, I did try to add little twists to the orignal ideas, here and there. Also, some characters are based off of multiple versions of their toys. Zartan, for instance, is prmarily based off of his original toy, but with a bit of version 8 in there (the head).

Oh well, hope you enjoy!

Please Do More. This series of twisteroo is so cool and I myself am a big fan of alternate stories.

It always threw me before i became a real fan: which was the Cobra Ninja, Storm Shadow or Snake eyes? I mean, come on, "Snake Eyes"= Cobra!
so i actually thought he was a spy, and the others were just oblivious. of cource, then i became a more in depth fan, and so stopped caring about the irony of the names.

I think Snake and Skarlott look better this way. .-.

thebobguy Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I'm glad you think so. I was happy with their looks.

Actually, the Skarlott outfit was one I came up with about 8 years ago, when trying to play around with some variant costumes for the Joes... I was quite goth at the time, haha. Hmmm, I wonder how it would look if I switched the yellow for blood red?

Thanks, I appreciate it. And I'm flattered you'd want my help on the comic projects.

Sadly, though, I'm not really looking to add new art projects to my life right now, especially ones with deadlines. That, and frankly, I kind of hate coloring. I really do. It was like pulling teeth to get me to finish coloring this one.

Yup, I had a lot of fun drawing them chibi-ish. I don't draw chibi nearly as often as I'd like to.

I tend to go in waves. I'll draw them a lot, then I do other styles for a bit. Like, right now, about 85% of what I've drawn lately has been chibi style.
