TRDL 2013 Series, No. 58 – Zarana [COBRA]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being COBRA, from G.I. Joe. I decided to take another pass at Zarana because I’ve never drawn her outside of private erotic commissions, and I dislike the character design, so it was an opportunity to tweak it a bit and see how I felt about it. I gave her a pompadour instead of a fauxhawk, which I kind of like, and I toned down some of her hillbilly mercenary vibe, but not so much as to be unrecognizable. My favorite change was making her rifle with the pinwheel blade thingie into a chainsaw gun. For science!
