I'm not going to delve much into describing what I was thinking while doing each one of these, there's a risk it could turn into a rant of how much I don't like The X-Men. Don't expect a second round of X-Men characters, sorry.
Left to Right: Psylocke, Jean Grey (aka Phoenix, Marvel Girl), Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Rogue, Gambit.
All in all, once I got the ball rolling it was fun doing these, but I hope you like them better than me.
Great art. If only, Psylocke's sexiness doesn't match with that haircut. Ah, and your Wolverine is GREAT!
(En serio, se habrá puesto de moda entre las mujeres afeitarse la cabeza, pero es que ahí arriba sí me gusta que tengan pelo! XD )
¡Oye! ¡Que lo del rayo rojo molaba! (Aunque no te falta razón, Psylocke va necesitada de alguna innovación... ¡pero es tan difícil sacarla de su traje tradicional...! Je, je!)
As for Jean Grey, for me, is more better as Phoenix, but it's your choice.
If you ever makes the said second round of X-Men, you would include the three remaining originals (Angel, Beast and Iceman) and four fan-favorites (Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler, Colossus and Emma Frost)
Otherwise, thanks. That was a hard work of yours, alexmax.
Jean Grey has had so, so many different uniforms, I just went with the X-Factor one because I don't see a lot of fanart in those colors.
Don't know about doing more X-Men. Maybe, but not likely.
Thanks for the comment!
But it is a challenge, as is Gambit, who really doesn't have a symbol outside of the cards. I could do a silhouette of the four aces for him, but I'm not sure. It's just as hard of a puzzle as figuring out how to do Boba Fett -- helmet? Mythosaur skull? Hmmm...
I was a major fan of Marvel, when I was younger, back then, I would read 90% Marvel and maybe 10% DC. With Spider-Man's clone saga, Heroes Reborn and Wolverine turning into some sort of ape (all this around 1995) I couldn't stand it anymore and dropped all the Marvel books.
While standing on DC's side of the isle, it looked like the X-Men books were nothing more than a infinite soap-opera with an ever revolving door of mutants; villains that would turn good, join the X-men, and later turn bad again; major characters that would die, only to return in a month or two; and Wolverine, Wolverine everywhere, in every cover, in every team (even The Avengers!) all the time.
DC is not that different really (even less so these days, having a lot of the same people that worked at Marvel in the 90's), with Batman. Until some 10 or 11 years ago it felt like, or at least I felt like, Superman was a close 2nd behind Batman, but since then, (maybe because of the lawsuit) DC treated Superman as a C-lister. The current DC Universe is nothing more than Heroes Reborn 15 years later.
Marvel...not so much with the bright spots I used to read The Ultimates religiously, but the Ultimate universe is no just as convoluted as the regular one. Most of their books right now are just flat out BAD. Honestly, if I see one more X-man or Avenger giving a press conference in a Marvel comic, I'm going to throw up.
DC/WB make me sad with their sorry attempts at doing superhero movies. I'd love to see a true Superman movie. I now know enough about Man Of Steel to think it will be another disappointment.
Thanks for the comment!
