If it comes to it, you certainly have my vote for BBP. I can't tell you how much I love what you did with this.

thank you very much one of my friends was saying banshee got too bright so i was thinking of darkening a little but hes so far back and in the sun I wanted too push him back so Im not sure.

I may have to go redo my Banshee and Storm. They were the two I rushed thru at the last minute. Not my best effort.

:iconvic55b:
vic55b Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
well they look pretty good for a rush job also I really like how your Jean turned out as well also I think your storm is pretty good specially her costume and jewelry

Tell you a secret. Storm's lips didn't get colored, neither did Nightcrawler's tail :ohnoes:

hehe I totally missed them. Quite embarrassed was I when I realized that foible :facepalm:

In my opinion, this should be BBP, no doubt. I love the "realistic" style of this painting, without straying from the comic look. I really love it.

:iconvic55b:
vic55b Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
thank you very much, I really enjoy rendering things more realistic bit still adding a bit of that comic lighting and coloring Im still not quite done with this one Im adding all my high lights to it and updating gradually as I finish I just hope Ill get it fully done in time.
