The Baroness

I've been watching a ton of the old GI Joe cartoon and wanted to take a stab at drawing The Baroness.

Wow. Just wow. I always thought Baroness was hot, but holy cow! Did you see they're releasing the whole GI Joe cartoon set in a footlocker? 150 bucks!

I love the pose, the background, the details...all of it! Just awesome.

Hmm... it's not bad... but something's not quite right to me. I guess if I were to try to quantify it, it's somehow lacking the evil librarian feel I remember.

I wonder if her alternate-universe self ever succeeded in starting the Destro/Cobra Commander civil war she and the renegade Joes were trying for. Too bad they left Doc there to make way for Lifeline. Lifeline supposedly hated guns, but he had a gun on his action figure's outfit. Oh well, as long as I know that the Baroness is one hot German lady, I can live with this drawing, and of course, knowing is half the battle.

Sienna Miller surrenders. LOVE IT!

That's a lot of damn snakes!
The snake pit is very well done and a heck of a lot of work (this for a ten-dollar commission? You madwoman!)

And, I just found out that while a group of generic snakes is a Den, Nest or Pit, a group of rattlesnakes is a Rhumba.

That is the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

Wow, Anonymous, how utterly magnanimous of you. Like they say, if you can't say something nice, hide behind anonymity.

Groovy!

Um, Cobra Commander, have you been visiting Becca's website long? Go back several posts to anytime she's drawn something in the past few months, and you'll see I've commented on them, most of the time, giving my opinion on it.

While this has elements that make me recognize this is supposed to be the Baroness (real name Anastasia DeCobray), parts of it just don't seem right to me. If this was just supposed to be a random babe in a pit of snakes, I wouldn't have a single critique. However, being that it is the Baroness, my first crush on a bad girl, I am opinionated about it. If you don't like my opinion, then ignore it. It's not like my opinion is fatal to anyone.

But continuing to talk about what you don't like about it on the woman's own post, that's just genuine class right there.

So anonymous, so needy for validation.

Becca said...

Matt-

Dr. Monkey-
Glad you dig it!

Gilligan-
Yeehaw!

Blackwing-
Awww thank you! It was way fun ti draw!

Anon-
Guess we just see The Baroness in different ways. I've been watching a ton of that cartoon recently and she seems pretty overtly sexual, especially in that episode where she wears that perfume that makes men obey her every command. The dress she wears is something else! Not to mention she's been caught making out with Destro on at least a couple episodes. I haven't read the comics though, maybe they play her a bit different. Either way I think we both agree she is wayyyy hot!

Tenebrous-
Thank you!

Arkonbey-
This is actually the last thing I drew on my own before I began my commission madness!

And Rhumba? That is soooo cool!

Cobra-
Glad you dig the drawing!

Robert-
Thank you!

AJ-
Aw thank you! And yes I did draw this and there is lots more of my art posted here. Glad you dig the blog :)

Great job! I wouldn't be surprised to see Sienna Miller stretched out in a snake-filled pose like this in a magazine soon. If so, go after the credit!
