I am THRILLED that Ellen Page will be back as Kitty, and Shawn Ashmore was a fairly decent Bobby - but man, no offense to Anna Paquin who is a good actress, but I do hope they revamp her original portrayal to include more of the fiesty Rogue we know and love from the comics and various TV series.
This has been my art project for tonight. I love the line up, I love that Jubilee is the star, hell, I love that there’s a baby. I’mma be obsessed with this until it comes out. You’ve been warned.
Also, DOES ANYONE WANT TO TAKE A CRACK AT COLORING THIS? PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I WANNA SEE WHAT YOU COME UP WITH!
Hon, you seriously have to ask? I’ll totes color it.
“There are reasons.” “I have points.” “Hooray for an all-girl team!”
Blah-freakin-blah. EVERYTHING NEEDS MORE DAZZLER!!!
I totally rage drew. It’s not a tight fit at all but I had to get it out. I think I can finally move on… until the next thing Dazz doesn’t get to be a part of. *tear
I’d be pissed about Ali not getting in it, except that she’s heading up her OWN TEAM over in X-Treme X-Men, and it’s a pretty awesome book at that.
First try at something like this with markers (as opposed to digital)
When Neil Gaiman wrote “Marvel 1602” he wisely kept his cast to those characters of the early days of Marvel’s Golden Age. This meant he got the original iconic characters, an a heafty but manageable cast.
However, it also meant that I never got to see some of my favorite women transformed into 1602 style superheroes. This piece is a concept work, done in pencils (color slightly tweaked in GIMP), of Rogue, Kitty and Ororo (all characters owned by Marvel, designs mine).
In keeping with the style of Gaiman’s story, I set the costumes to reflect their characters when they were first introduced to the reading public.
Rogue, as part of Mystique’s Brotherhood, dresses in a practical masculine style for her work as a terrorist.
Kitty, as a normal teen, wears the female fashions of the day.
Ororo was the hardest, as Africans still had a very minor appearance in Britain, but I wanted to include her and I thought the idea of a princess/goddess worked well with how Professor Xavier originally found her. Her costume is a tweaking of the cut and features of European dress, mixed with the drapery and heat awareness of African dress.
I’d very much like to draw other variations on their costumes, as well as do some of the other characters.
These are things that are happening on my computer screen right now.
Hastily colored and lined because I wanted to share them with these people.
This is utterly brilliant. Bravo, Shannon!
My latest piece, done after taking advice from the pros at C2E2 last weekend!
Every piece you do is better than the last, Alicia!
So taking some of the wonderful advice I was given by professionals over the weekend, I churned out this drawing today in one hour. Gonna practice more awesome. Also Marvel, if you’re reading, I submit this as a pitch for a title. No words needed. Just these two fine ladies with katanas, katanaing the shit out of everything. Now go forth and story this, do it now.
Alicia, this is really good! I can really see your art improving!
Some of the cosplays we saw today. So I don’t know any of these cosplayers; if you’re one tell me and I’ll give you credit.
The Blade cosplay probably made my day for one simple reason: I didn’t think people still thought about it. Don’t know why…maybe because it’s an “old” series. Childhood memories? A little.
Oh and Stephanie, I thought of you as soon as I saw the Homestuck cosplayers.

Oooh it’s Joan, Alicia and a really awesome Pixie!
