As a follow up… I finished Xavier. I’m not happy with the results, but it’s better than I was expecting it to be. #xmen #professorx #professorxavier #charlesxavier #x-men
The year 2000 is finally old enough to legally drink.
When a drawing is coming out well, I’m afraid to finish it because I don’t want to ruin it.
I either start at the drawing forever, taking forever to make the next “move”, or I’ll stop working on it and instead pick a new project to work in that I care less about. Then, if the new project starts coming out well, I’ll stop that one too.
Case in point, both of these just started out as jank practice drawing. The drawing of zorofessor X was original a sketch I did 7 years ago that I didn’t like. I decided to ink it for practice after I paused coloring this sketch of three of my Angels & Alchemy characters. 😒
I had never been more crushed than when this book was cancelled. Peter David hadn’t written Quicksilver since I was a kid. You pair him with Gambit, and two of my favorite New Mutants: Doug ‘Cypher’ Ramsey and Warlock. It was incredible. PAD hasn’t been paired with an artist of A-list caliber since he worked with Dale Keown on The Incredible Hulk. I pushed this book so hard when it was around. But alas, it was canned. I didn’t think sales were that bad, but whatever “universe shaking” cross-over event was happening at the time moved the landscape beyond what this book was trying to do. Sales weren’t strong enough for it to survive that, and Marvel opted to take it’s chances with a newer concept.
Baby seals love clubbing.
I’ve never worked with a full set of markers before, and my girlfriend got me some, so this is the first thing that I’ve done. Was a fun project 😊
Character sketches, to see if these current designs grow on me or not. Iris will most likely always wear street clothes, probably a combination of skirt and jacket consistently, as to maintain an identifiable look. Ghost Nimbus is actually supposed to wrapped in a cloak most of the time, but I am feeling his boots at the moment and wanted to show them off. I’m going to try and color this thing with markers.
Conceptually, I’ve been developing this character and his powers since I was in high school. This is a design that I did in my sketchbook a few years ago. I guess it’s his current character design. He’s one of the characters from the Angels & Alchemy world that I am developing with my best friend James.
I’m finally coming to grips with the fact that I might not be the best at designing costumes. In my head, my characters are sooo much cooler visually than they actually are. These are some designs-in-progress; they’re probably getting scrapped entirely.
My girlfriend and I went out for our second grocery shopping trip since the stay-at home order was given. The experience was entirely different: hella fewer people. No one was frantic, everyone kept their distance, wore masks, and were eerily silent. My other observation: unicorns were everywhere. I took a few pics, but there were way more.
