That's a durn purty piece of work. A question: on these larger commissions (or any commission, now that I think about it), would you be open to using your OMAC/Namor duo-tone technique?

I might, if I can still get the paper stock.

But I would recommend against it, since a piece of
UV block glass that size would be pretty darned
expensive!!

Mystique was pre-existing.

I came up with the visuals and powers for Avalanche,
Destiny and Pyro. Chris named them.

The best X-Men I've seen in decades!!!

It's there a "trick" to draw correctly the metal body of Colossus?

Nothing beyond my standard metal technque. (Behind the Scenes: It used to bug me, at a very, very, very low level, that all the muscles of Peter's body became perfectly outlined when he manifested his power -- except those in his face. There was some small but very anal part of my brain that wondered why his face could be perfectly smooth, but the rest of him had to be articulated. Not that I would have wanted to draw an articulated face, mind you!!)

This is a powerhouse illustration. Wow.

It really captures the sense that Angel is holding Destiny up in the air. Her body has weight, and yet there's a lightness necessary to action. Really, just excellent.

And... could Mystique look any better?!

Have you ever tried something like this with Colossus?

Damn.  That's awesome.  Even without Magneto, I always thought this Brotherhood was a force to be reckoned with.

Y'know...why wasn't Magneto in that brawl? It would have been neat to see Magneto fighting Sentinels in the future and fighting the X-Men in the past. Plus...another JB Magneto fight!

JB,

Thank you. It's absolutely perfect! You out did yourself.

And thanks for adding the Capitol, it's great.

JB, was Destiny intended to be the same Irene Adler from the Sherlock Holmes stories?

What's funny is that they are currently doing major condtruction around the Captiol for a new vistors center and the grounds look just like the way JB drew them.

Utterly cool.
These commissions just prove that, in all these years, no one has surpassed

That's one of the better ideas I've hear!

Let's bug a publisher...
