Feb Draw a Day 09 by will-Ruzicka Feb Draw a Day 09 by will-Ruzicka
So I've wanted to draw 80's Baroness ever since my days on G.I. Joe Renegades. I think this character is partly responsible for my love of women in glasses.... and tight fitting cat suits... and guns.

Anyway, I debated making a completely ridiculous amount of laser fire streaking through the scene, because that was something that always made me laugh as a kid. All those blasts and NO ONE ever got hit.

Baroness has a duffle bag with her... I think it's her gym clothes.

Indeed. Except, I wonder... Can he feel anything through the chrome plating on his face?

And they always abandon their vehicles just before they get blown up.

I know, right. I used to laugh so much as a kid at the dudes ejecting from the jets just as it blows up.

I love the bright colors you used in this one! :D Also, how do you make the brush tool sharp and clear like that? C:

It's a special brush setting... I'll save my preferences and send them to you sometime. ^^;;

I'm not sure you've messed around with the brushes settings yet, or if you know where to find them. Next time I'm over, remind me and I'll show you where it is.

Good looks, glasses, a gun and a tight cat-suit. What's not to love?

Nice work. Love that face!

I get a Don Bluth kind of vibe.

Really? Don Bluth? Can't say I actively try and seek inspiration there, but that's cool.

"Partly responsible?" She's wholly responsible for my love of the cat suits and guns, and Velma already made me a lover of girls with glasses before then. Her expression makes it look like another day at the office--steal some top-secret device, shoot at the Joes, leave Destro hanging when the mission sours, pick up the other cat suit at the cleaners, etc.. The sheer amount of laser fire in battle scenes made me think that marksmanship got shorted on the training schedule on both sides. Nice work.

Thanks! I always like that about her, that she would be unfazed by the village people G.I. Joe shooting at her as she made her escape. I did want to include Destro in this, but I was spending so much time on it anyway, I decided against it.

Oh my. Remember when I said we were alike in some ways? That's one of 'em.
The Baroness was one of my favorite characters from when I was a kid, and she always held a special place in my heart. ;)

I like her nonchalant face here. Why no Cobra logo on her uniform, though?

I was waiting for someone to point out the absence of the logo. Completely slipped my mind and I was running late on posting it. Sorry!! I noticed the moment I hit send.

I don't really remember any of the original Joe's as fondly as I do Baroness.

I was always a Cobra person myself... I enjoyed the Baroness, Destro, Zartan, Dr Mindbender and Cobra Commander greatly. The Joes? They were all the same to me. ;)

The Baroness. Making Glasses erotic since 1985. :love:
And this is pretty bloody amazing. It looks like a still from an as yet unaired Joe series.

I hadn't mentioned it, but I started using a storyboard template for these February Draw a day images starting with the MASK one. Figured I should treat them as stills from a show.

The glasses they gave her back then weren't the most flattering. Sort of fell in line with the idea of making the nerdy or evil or otherwise undesirable girl wear giant ugly glasses. But I think it backfired because now there are people like me who love those be-speckled characters. Velma over Daphne, Baroness over Scarlett, right? XD
