this is the best version of Snake Eyes... the commando version.  Before everyone became ninjas for some reason.

I've always loved the classic commando snake eyes look. Just as much as his more well known visor ninja look (maybe even more because it's the first version I saw of him and got as a toy). Great Job.

This is another incredible piece. One of my favorite things about your art (besides the drawings themselves) is the way your characters handle their props. I love it when Snake-Eyes actually uses something in one of his pouches!

That mag falling is a really nice touch.

It fills the space there, I find when you put something in motion and have it completely surrounded by negative space it feels like slow motion. the more negative space that surrounds it, the more slowed down time gets.
