Archangel



This is my favorite version of Angel/Archangel. When this change first occurred in the comics, I was never crazy about the costume. I didn't understand how bright blue and pink colors made this character suddenly evil. It didn't mesh well with me.

After time, when Warren Worthington III turned back to the good side, I accepted the costume, and still think the line design is cool, even if it is bright pink.

this card was a challenge, to try and figure out what I was going to do with the wings. Angel himself I wanted to show as a stoic figure in this one, looking strong, but casually floating.

Cloak and Dagger




I had never drawn cloak and Dagger before, the Marvel duo that I first started reading in the late 80's. After doing this card, I hopped online to read about their history again, and remembered why I liked them in the first place. They were kind of reluctant heroes, cleansing souls that had been damaged like theirs were.

In the early comics, I never got the sense that they were lovers, but this was explored more in the newer series they've been in. I thought that a pose with Dagger showing a hint of sensuality, and Cloak showing his own sense of protectiveness for her, was the way to go. Pretty damn happy with how this card turned out.

Drawing sketch cards



Looking through some past entries, I realized that I hadn't posted a lot about the sketch cards I did for the Marvel Masterpieces II set. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll post up some examples of cards I finished. Here's X-23.

The first one is, of course, the pencils for it. I didn't really know a lot about this character, until I started looking for reference shots of her, and then discovered that she was a clone of Wolverine, and that she had made her first Marvel appearance ever in the XMen animated series around five years ago.

She was an interesting challenge. Based on who she is, you want her to look tough, but not manly. Sexy, but not swimsuit model sexy. I kept her lean, but placed some muscle in there, and made sure her hair had that flowing quality, to soften her features a bit.

I really like how she turned out, as I'm getting better with using the watercolor pencil for the white highlights, which can really make an image pop with a fgew, subtle lines to show detail.
