Heh, that's good stuff. I like the light, non rendered colouring and the hand drawn lettering is sweet. Looks like the cover to his work out video.

Moondog said...

Hence the name

I kept thinking of that phenomenal Jim Lee drawing of Piotr form one of the poster inserts in the various X-Men 1 issues, the one by the pool. I think Jubilee was sitting on his arm or something.

Declan Shalvey said...

Oh yeah, i think he had the other arm flexed the other way and Jubilee was on his shoulder or something. Good times.

Great drawing. I actually don'T like the hand lettering. See? I can disagree with Thompson now and then.

Moondog said...

But when you do you tend to be wrong.

Stephen Thompson said...

Very true.

Will Sliney said...

Nice one Mooney. Top notch anatomy there. If you were to draw an xbook, is that the build youd give him

Declan Shalvey said...

I disagree.

Moondog said...

Probly Will, why do you think he should be more bulky?

Will Sliney said...

Id do him a lot bigger, but it always depends on the artist. I take it youd do Cyclops in his 'Slim' build?

Moondog said...

Oh definitely, He'd be lean and sinewy as all get-out.
Now that you've said it about colossus though, I think you're right, he should be a tad more bulky. As usual, I put zero to no thought into it before I started sticking down lines. Truth be told, I just wanted to draw some shiny arms.

Moondog said...

Shrunk his noggin down a bit to try and make him better proportionately, looks much better for it. Good call Williards.

Stephen Thompson said...

Yep, better.

Lisa Jackson said...

I like his shiny head.

Will Sliney said...

Def better, nice one Mooney.

Declan Shalvey said...

Much improved.

And Lisa likes your shiny head, it seems. Watch out Thompson.

Fran Johnston said...
