11" x 17" illo of Wolverine in a forest setting; the details are:

- please have the scene similar to the sequence in X-Men # 109 where Wolverine is tracking and nearly touching the deer; include the deer with Wolverine approaching from behind
- draw Wolverine in his brown costume
- landscape format

Suddenly...

Love the idea!  And this is a Wolverine we probably haven't seen since those days, pity.  Congrats to the owner, and thanks for sharing.

By the way -- before any of the artists among you call me on it, I want to point out that, yes, I did break a "rule" on this one, by having Wolverine leading with his left arm and his left leg.

Did it to show the character/costume to best advantage.

Gives it a 'sneaky' vibe too.

Seems like a happy accident then, JB.  Wolverine's pose conveys caution and tentativeness as if he's really trying to not scare the deer away.  You can just feel it ready to bolt off.

Very nice. It makes a refreshing change of pace to have Wolverine in this kind of more peaceful setting and it makes him less one-note to have a smile on his face. Not everything should be snarling anger.

Nice job on the forest floor -- you've evoked that kind of leafy gunk you find in such a setting very well.

the deer almost looks like it's glowing. The undetailed tree adds a nice balance to the piece.
