Every so often, over on his blog, Robert Atkins (IDW G.I. Joe and comics artist extraordinaire) posts some images of recent commissions and other work that he’s done in the realm of G.I. Joe. Over the past few days he’s posted some fantastic work, including a particularly cool Snake Eyes/Deadpool team up that seems appropriate with the new Deadpool film incoming.
There’s some really great stuff there, and while Atkins isn’t currently soliciting commission work, it’s still a heck of a lot of fun to check out the work he’s been posting.
Check it out over at RobertAtkinsArt.Blogspot.com and I strongly recommend you visit the site regularly. There’s always some cool stuff to check out.
He may not be doing the art chores for any regular G.I. Joe books at the moment (unfortunately) but Robert Atkins has still been plugging away at his blog, Robert Atkins Art, and he recently hit a huge landmark, his 700th blog post! In celebration of this great achievement he has posted some great shots of the work he’s done for the IDW Limited series. Featuring three of the most famous faces in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, we see Atkins’ take on Snake Eyes, Destro, and the Baroness in a series of spectacular pieces of art.
Check out the 700th post right here. I’ve mirrored just a few images below, but be sure to check out his blog for even more.

We have some pretty big landmarks in both the classic Transformers and G.I. Joe comic continuities coming up with Transformers: Regeneration #100, and of course G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #200. To celebrate these two events, IDW Publishing solicited fantastic G.I. Joe artist Robert Atkins to develop a double cover to both issues, which take both franchises and slam them together into one awesome image. Over on his blog at Robert Atkins Art, he shows off the rough and final pencils of this cover and the results are, as one might expect, astoundingly awesome.
Check out his progress commentary over on the Robert Atkins Art blog, and take a peek at the final penciled art below.
