JB, I love these pencils. Showing us here
at the forum is a bit of a preaching to
the converted situation. Might I suggest
leaking stuff to the outside world and see
what the response is there?

Nothing gets posted here that doesn't immediately reach the "outside world".

Sad, but after all these years I still can't draw Wolverine without a small part of my brain fuming.

What causes this is remembering Logan attacking those goons in the Hellfire Club basement, and getting raked with machine gun fire for his troubles. The EiC at the time ordered the script re-written to indicate Wolverine had only been "grazed". Healing quickly from such a catastrophic gut shot was deemed "unrealistic" -- this after Wolverine had survived being literally punched into orbit.

Times change.

And, since you've been good. . . . . . .

Excuse the skew. I wasn't fussing about squaring up my phone.

That first panel close up is the best F'ing drawing of Cyclops I've ever seen!

There he is! Perfect!

It is always SO nice to see old friends come out of your pencil, JB. It's very comforting. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, that's how it should look.

No reason to stop now, keep it rolling and before you know it you'll have yourself a one shot story.
Then send it in to Marvel :-)

You touch here on something that has fascinated me since I was a kid. Somewhere in Germany, years ago, this particular lead was manufactured. And this drawing was in it.

Not literally, of course. Not in the sense that someone else could have used my pencil to produce this drawing. That was in me. But I love the idea of all these pieces coming together, down thru years, so I could scratch some graphite onto a sheet of bristol (also coming together after years and years) and make this drawing.

Almost makes me believe in Fate.

Fate is a four letter f-word. :)

If this page goes on to be published, then I would definitely believe in fate.

Ahhhhh, seeing these drawings of UNCANNY X-MEN really takes me back to the good ol' days yet it's got that modern JB style!

However you manage to "scratch some graphite onto a sheet of bristol" and create these pages, JB... I could get used to it!!


Honestly, JB... thank you for sharing this. Much appreciated from this ol' X-MEN fan.

-C!

It's a kind of magic!

I can't imagine doing something like this and not feeling it yourself as the artist, a subtle high of satisfaction. Something that can keep you going? :^)
