We need a few good men and women to enlist in the GIJOE illustration contest. Join in the THROWBACK THURSDAY FORUM HERE on channel Frederator RAW and start uploading your own stylized illustration of your favorite GIJOE character(s) for a chance to win prizes. The contest will end mid January, so everyone has the holiday break to get some doodling in. Have fun with it! It could be a sketch, digital painting or kick ars sculpture, you decide. We'll have a guest judge in the end giving all of the pics a once over for a grand prize. It's a great opportunity to strut your stuff, show your talents and join in an amazing animation community. I must also note that this contest is FOR FUN and is not in any way affiliated with or endorsed in connection with the Hasbro toy company or the GIJOE brand.
YO JOE! I'm back on the throwbacks with a vengance. As a kid I collected G.I.Joe figures and indulged in the 80's cartoon. One of the most remembered characters for me was Destro. Looking back now as an adult, he looks kinda pimpish, so I had to throw the Barroness in this pic. For the backdrop, I tried to replicate the toy packaging. I drew the characters on animation paper, scanned them in, then colored it all in photoshop.
NOW IT"S YOUR TURN TO DRAW YOUR FAVORITE JOE! BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE YEAR DRAW YOUR VERSION OF YOUR FAVORITE JOE ( or Joes) AND SUBMIT IT FOR A PRIZE! CONTEST DETAILS WILL BE POSTED SOON. START SKETCHING NOW BECAUSE "KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!"
