11" x 17" illustration of Wolverine fighting two or more Hellfire Club henchmen; the details are:

- Wolverine in costume from your X-Men run

- warehouse setting similar to cover of X-Men # 133please make heavy use of blacks/shadows

I hope that's enough blacks for the customer. With those Hellfire goons all in black, it's difficult to do too much with shadows and the like without them getting lost against the background.

I hope the goon getting his face ripped open was a truly horrible person. Yeesh!

Looking at this, so very much enjoying the Wolverine here, how he's supposed to be, it just makes me wish that whoever takes up the character from Hugh Jackman would be cast properly. Jackman is a fine actor -- but he's nothing at all like Wolverine.

Don't worry! He'll turn up later with cyborg parts!

Ouch!

Nicely dynamic and I like the balance of the composition.

Excellent!  One of my favorite scenes from the X-Men run.  It's always great to see your Wolverine, JB.

If not, this piece is welcome to take up residence at my house, JB.

By the by… I dig the way you break the border with motion/speed lines.

Wow… JB, love the action/motion in this… and also like the line variation between the foreground and background. Figures pop out nicely!

-C!

The HR Department at The Hellfire Club really pushes their "truly comprehensive healthcare package" to potential new employees.

JB! Did you take a photograph of the perspective grids you penciled
out for this one? I'm disoriented just looking at it, I can't imagine having
to face all those lines you must've drawn, it would've made me crazy.
You are truly a monster artist bro.

It's basically a simple three point shot, looking up. But some of the upper crates are tumbling.

John said: "basically".

Translated: Not for mortals. :)

Fantastic angle.  Fantastic use of space.  Would have been my next request.  Very jealous.  Congrats to the commissioner.

------------------------
I have some grasp of perspective, but it often gets the better of me when I am drawing beyond basic setups. How do you handle the tumbling crates? Is it another set of vanishing points. Another grid entirely, in other words? Or am I just lost...

Objects that are twisted/rotated in space create their own horizons and vanishing points.

Two or more sets of vanishing points and horizons.
I just drew my first two point perspective drawing.
I was going to try a three point drawing next.
Now, I'm going to be all distracted and screw up my development.
