 Beautiful but menacing. I like the eyes. Nice one, JB. She's off to destroy a planet, isn't she?

Impressive piece. Ya know, I never saw it before, but this piece of art makes me wonder if Phil Jimenez considers you one of his influences. How's that for a reversal of associations?

She's beautiful when she's hungry.  Thanks for sharing.  One of my two dozen commission ideas, but I'll probably still ask for it some day.

Stunning, I love dark phoenix, Phoenix, Black Queen and any other incarnation of Jean Grey that JB has done. The owner is a lucky person, it will certainly stand out on the wall.

JB - Apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but did you design the "Dark Phoenix" version of the costume?

WOOOW!!!! Thank you so much for sharing! That's Dark Phoenix in my book!

Congrats to the lucky one who will receive this piece in the mail.

Not as such, Rene. Dave Cockrum designed the original Phoenix costume -- which, by the way, he intended to be white and gold -- and I modified it as a kind of "mood costume" for Dark Phoenix.

I am not much of a Madonna fan, but now I cannot get that damn song out of my head.

Thanks JB.

T.

ps.  I really like the drawing.

I think a white and gold Phoenix costume would have looked great.  (Speaking of white and gold outfits... Jerry Ordway's take on Mary Marvel's uniform worked well for me.)

Why is it every time I see one of these character shots, I have a new favorite?

Mr.Byrne...you started doing Phoenix' chest logo bigger...that was a great modification...and you did it gradually...did Cockrum comment on this?

Incidentally, this piece was mostly done with brush.

Well, the PITT pen brush nib, to be 100% accurate.

***

The only thing I recall Dave commenting on in regards Phoenix was him saying he liked what I'd done with the flaming Phoenix Effect, and that he planned to draw it that way if the character was ever brought back. I was surprised by that, since I thought I was just drawing what he'd drawn!

As to the chest emblem, it got bigger so as to fill out the same space that the black triangle had filled, since that was no longer clearly visible on the darker costume.

"Touched for the very first time"

Is this the first commission that you've done of Dark Phoenix?

My rationale was that there are two scans in the commission gallery with Jean Grey wearing her Dark Phoenix outfit, but not apparently operating under the Phoenix's control.

I'll keep thinking about it.......

All I can come up with is Madonna constantly "resurrects" her
career and also has extremely muscular legs. =0)
