Storm Shadow vs. Snake Eyes by Gremikin Storm Shadow vs. Snake Eyes by Gremikin
oops i made a gi joe all over the paper...

That movie is a mess. But WHAT a mess. I love action movies, whether sloppy or sublime, and I will not repent.

I also have a disease called Ninjavitis, hence the choice of the two ninjas featured in the movie: Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. The costume design is awesome but I am somewhat confused as to why they didn't just cover up Snake Eyes' mouth...but that would get real tedious, you know, if you were fighting bad guys all day and you had that fabric over your mouth that gets real stinky 'cuz you're breathing on it and all you want to do is knock back some Gatorade without pulling down the damn thing each time.

I did this artwork from the ground zero in Photoshop CS but used the G.I. JOE logo from an image found with Google.

I must favourite this simply because your description made me lol. Oh, also because this is awesome.

(Thank you, you're the first person I know who's been able to provide a reasonable excuse for the mouth thing.)

ninjavitis is a disease we share, apparently.

Ah, yes, how much we can sympathize. The insatiable cravings for ninjas. The mood swings. The rashes. And then there's the ninjavitis.

Of course, if someone tried to cure me of it, I would attack them. And burn all their research.

I hope Snake Eyes gets a girlfriend in the next film. Then he can also put that mouth to good use. >;)

It is not something that should be cured. *nods solemnly* IT'S A GIFT, DAMMIT. SNAKE EYES GET OVER HERE, I CAN'T STARE AT YOU PROPERLY FROM THIS ANGLE.


He really does need a girlfriend, though-- or at least a new mask. Or a distraction. Or a solo movie.

I think that's in the making.

One can only hope.


Or CAN they?!!

If I had friends in high places my only use for them would be to influcence which movies get made.

All I can think of is way back when there were comics released titled "SNAKE EYES: featuring GI Joe". I mean, jeez, no matter what people said about that movie, it always seemed to end with "--but Snake Eyes was awesome!". And if the movie companies want to play their financial cards right and get a ton of money, by god, you go right ahead and use Snake Eyes for your money-making purposes if it means we get something Snakes-centric out of it.

Amen. At some point they just have to realize the formula is something like:

Cobra + Snake Eyes = Awesome
Snake Eyes + GI Joe = Awesome
Cobra + GI Joe = meh.

Solve for value of Snake Eyes.

I like to think that maybe there are a whole bunch of Snake Eyes fanboys and fangirls sitting around the movie studio and the advertising office and the script editing room, being delegated to serving coffee to the higher-ups and making subtle suggestions that hey, maybe Duke doesn't need so much screen time, and slowly but surely making it known that Snake Eyes is awesome too, and everyone who likes GI Joe thinks so, and 'WHY ARE YOU NOT LISTENING, WHY DOES RIPCORD GET A GIRLFRIEND BUT NOT THE NINJA, NO I WILL NOT GET YOU ANY MORE COFFEE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M FIRED I JUST GOT THIS JOB', et cetera.

At least I can hope. <.<

They can slip a serum into the higher-ups coffee that will make them highly suggestible. Then they can casually drop a hint that, "hey, guys, maybe you were focusing on the wrong character all along?"

Then one of the higher-ups will swivel his black leather chair towards the others and say, "Hey, guys, maybe we were focusing on the wrong character all along?"

Much back slapping and champagne ordering ensues. A Snake Eyes movie is made. A Snake Eyes nation is created. A Snake Eyes flag is raised.


...such a beautiful dream...

Of course they said Snake Eyes was awesome. He's a ninja. You can't say a ninja isn't awesome. For one thing, it would be a lie, and for another, he would sneak into your house in the middle of the night and stab you in your sleep with something pokey. :katana:
