G.I.Joe Classified Glenda digibash (digital repaint)

After Quarrel, of course I had to do the Argentina version of Scarlett, Glenda, which also saw a nod in the 25th line as “pilot Scarlett.”

Here we have the original Argentina version of Glenda, with the upcoming Classified Series Scarlett.  (Glenda image mirrored from YOJOE, and was contributed to YOJOE by Anthony Mirro

Here is an in progress shot:

Here is a final version side by side with Glenda.

Here she is with Scarlett from the classified series so you can see the work I did on her.  I gave her a different eye color and earring color to Quarrel, but kept the same hair, and removed freckles. Outside of the Black and the very light blue, everything was changed. Zipper was colored in, just like on Quarrel.

For fun here is a comparison shot with Quarrel from my last post.

Here is my 2nd take, a more classic unitard version.

Here I have added a metallic effect.

With the original again:

And a comparison shot between the two versions. I much prefer the modern, and haven’t mastered the metallic effect yet, but I know it will tickle some folks nostalgia.  I could not get the black areas of the boots and gloves fully white without loosing detail, so I settled for a light gray.

Next up I plan to post some of past digital recolors, and my next new recolor will use a Valaverse Action Force body.

Ban on women in combat lifted, Lady Jaye, Scarlet, CoverGirl and the rest, now make more sense.

5by5nWhile you’ve probably already heard the news, you may not have thought how it affected one of our favorite (and my personal favorite) 80’s properties. I’ve been slow to get this up (my apologies) but instantly upon hearing the news, I instantly thought about how growing up I had already seen women in combat.  The ladies of G.I.Joe, may have even inspired some women out there, as the men of Joe inspired many boys to grow up to be soldiers.  To me, it at least helped with acceptance. Even before this news was up the Joe movies were continuing to stick to the comics and cartoons and show us women in combat.  The upcoming G.I.Joe retaliation has two tough ladies fighting on the Joe team.

While G.I.Joe may not be as well known as say G.I.Jane the movie, as portraying women in combat, it’s done it’s part, and will continue to do so.

To all our real G.I.Joes and G.I.Janes out there God bless, and although the ban is only just now lifted, we are thankful for the lives of all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and this has already included women.

To Hasbro, way to predict the future and thanks for showing us positive portrayals of some tough ladies.

For those curious the  list of female G.I.Joes are:  Scarlet, Lady Jaye, Covergirl, Jinx, G.I.Jane, Bombstrike/also called Bombshell, Mayday, Doc II, Dailtone II, Hashtag, Helix,  Freestyle, Vorana (or Diana/Volga), Firewall, Firewall II (IDW) Chameleon, Chameleon II (IDW)and I might even be missing some more from the IDW run.

 

Keep up the good work ladies

Jinx may hail from the Arashakage,  but in mutiple media has proven an important member of G.I.Joe (sadly out of all the Jinx toys we have been treated to lately, one that is screen accurate to this custom, doesn't seem to be coming.)

Lady jaye is the most millitary of all the main Joe ladies (Scarlet, Jinx, Cover Girl and herself) Sadly the movie figure doesn't look like this look either (c'mon Hasbro!)

Lady Jaye is the most military of all the main Joe ladies (Scarlet, Jinx, Cover Girl and herself) Sadly the movie figure doesn’t look like this look either (c’mon Hasbro!) also please ignore the old movie date! it will be out March 29th.

Keep up the good work ladies
