IDW GI Joe Black Label Sketches- Snake Eyes By Robert Atkins

IDW Signature Plate Snake Eyes 04

Robert Atkins updated his deviantart gallery today with upcoming Snake Eyes sketches from IDW‘s GI Joe Black Label series. More info:

IDW is doing limited edition books that collect the GI JOE run I was a part of. The books are high dollar collector items and with each book I’m doing an original art sketch plate.

There are two levels of books. A black label book will have a single character inked sketch. The Blue label books will have two characters with full marker colored sketches. I’m working through the black label sketches first. I have a number of Snake Eyes that I’m required to do (which I’m always happy to draw SE) So that’s cool.

There are different versions of Snake Eyes drawn, including:

  • Robert Atkins’ design
  • Resolute Snake Eyes
  • Snake Eyes V1
  • Snake Eyes V2(classic)
For your viewing convenience, we’ve mirrored the images so read on to check them out!

This is the version that I designed of Snake Eyes for the current IDW comic books. I'm sure I'm biased, but it's my favorite to draw. The sketch plate drawing area is only about 5x7.

    LOVE his ink-work, so clean, and his V1 Snake Eyes drawing is BAD. ASS.

    I'm willing to list Robert Atkins as the definitive G.I.Joe artist for me. I love his work!

    I totally agree with this sentiment, I read his Snake eyes book, It's by far one of my favourite Joe books of all time!!
