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.

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.

Reply
:iconvic55b:
vic55b Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
thanks Colossus was challenging Iv'e never rendered metal like that before specially on his face I tried to treat it like regular anatomy then add some harder more carved looking edges in there then reflective spots Im pretty happy with how it turned out. Can't wait too see what you bring specially after the sneak peaks and the live streams.
