Adaptations Are Serious Business.



Especially with no script, dialog or outline. Still, I feel I pulled it off fairly well for not really knowing what was going on. Lessons learned, paychecks received. So here are a few snippets of art from a short film adaptation I did a little while ago. Afraid I can't say the who's, why's and what's of the situation, but here it is.

Magik!


I have always been a straight up sucker for the old school blue/yellow color scheme of the X-men's uniforms and if the opportunity presents itself, I will usually draw them in those digs. There have been a few incarnations of Illyana as I understand it, including something in Google Images that made me shake my head tonight, but this one always rings most true for me.

On an end note, I made the huge mistake of double checking this costume when I was polishing up the inks and happened upon Bill Sinkiewicz's take on Magik. Needless to say, I was inclined to tear my own in half.

X-Force vs. Apocalypse Commission.


This one took a bit of fiddling to make work, but I'm pleased with the results. Team shots and, by association, team books are challenging and my hats off to the artists who pull them off well and regularly. Apocalypse is always a fun draw and I believe it was my first time drawing Angel. In fact, I thought the feather-winged Angel was still being used. Shows how out of the loop I am. On the flip side of the coin, however, and I mean no disrespect to whoever created him, but this Fantomex character.... yikes.

Hawkeye and Mockingbird Commission.



Hawkeye is strangely popular. Never saw the big appeal of the character myself, but to each his own. Mockingbird was a first however, and surprisingly fun.

Airwalker.


I was a big fan of the storylines that swirled around Galactus' heralds back in the late 80s and into the 90s. Always crazy, always epic and always full of Silver Surfer and, if I wished really hard, Adam Warlock. Anyway, Airwalker was a severely underutilized character. How about a comeback? Perhaps with myself on art duties, hrmm?

Valkyrie.


Finally blasted my way through the last of a particularly troublesome batch of bristol board with this sketch, with results below satisfactory. I've never had a sheet more stubborn and incapable of taking a smooth wash, and I'm glad to be rid of it. Still, I enjoyed the drawing itself and the character, to boot.
