Here is my Week 6 piece.

Firefly was one of my Favorite characters in the Gi Joe Comics, but they didn't use him enough in the cartoons. I threw something together today after work and this is what came out. So here is my take on a more modern day desert combat Firefly. I'm hoping to pump out a Dreadnok or two by Friday.

That's very sweet man. Great pose, great lighting, great design (eyes especially).

That there is a home-run.

Awesome Michael! Real nice job on this. The pose on this Joe is appropriately menacing - looking very deadly.

I always wanted G.I Joes as a kid. They were great toys to play with (at my friends house). I saved my allowance for He-Man, Star Wars, D&D figures, and Mask.

Well done. He's got a menacing look to him. I want that gun! Actual size, not action figure size. It's nice!

I must admit that I don't know who Firefly is but I love this design. Great job!

Yes! Firefly finally gets some long overdue time in the spotlight. How can a character as cool as a masked, camo-clad saboteur be so underutilized? Very nice take on the character, Michael - I'd watch a new G.I. Joe series done in that style.

Fantastic all the same Mike! Really nice. I like the loose shapes in the shading and lighting from behind was a great choice. Dig that foreshortened arm coming outta his sleeve. And those 3 square snap-packs are simple and dimesnional.

I only had a few GI Joes but they gotta a lotta play because they were so posable. Super cool slo-mo action scenes played out a lot easier with toys that could actually move.
