The X-Men by Mr. Hawthorne

Week One - The X-men


I had planned on painting this, but ran out of time. This week is spoken for work wise, so I'm just going to post the pencils. If I have more time I'll try to ink this piece.

I have something else planned for week two of our "What if Comic Twart ran Marvel?" theme. So stay tuned.

PS - After I started this I realized that I forgot Beast! So, here's a small piece I did for a fan a few weeks back.

Lori said...

A super heroes obsessed friend gave me the nickname of "Rogue" so I have a soft spot for the X-Men. Love the amount of detail in the entire piece. Sweet!

Ron - Thanks man :-)

Loved your style for awhile and you awesome ability to draw lithe characters makes for an awesome Cyclops. Well done, sir.

Geez Mike... this is amazing. I'm always blown away by your clean lines and eye for detail. Love the composition, and that Storm...! Wow.

Seriously, send a link to somebody at Marvel. They need to see this.

Dan McDaid said...

Stunning work, Mr H!

Declan Shalvey said...

That's pretty spiffing stuff man. Would love to see it inked if you get a chance.

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Doc - thanks man! they were the most work. Had to do Nightcrawlers face a few times before I got it right.

Ryan - Thanks! I do tend to want to elongate certain character's bodies. I'm the El Greco of comics ;-)

Dan - Thanks Dan! I enjoyed drawing Storm :-)

Dan - Thanks, pal!

Declan - Thanks. I'm gonna try and ink it...figners crossed.

tomfowler said...

and if you don't ink it, i just might!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Thanks, Tom. I'm still holding out to hope to either ink or paint it, but I'd love to see you ink it for the sheer joy of seeing how you'd do it :)

It's nice to see Phoenix back and Wolverine's claw length is perfect. Awesome drawing Mike!

Dan Barrett said...

That afterthought painting of the beast looks amazing. It looks like a print with all of the layers of color. I'm flabbergasted by your sense of control.

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Coolguy - thanks man! Had to go way be with the team I'd like to draw.

Dan - Thanks! It's drawn in blue and black ink, so it's fairly easy to be very direct with it... if you don't worry too much about how easily you can destroy the under-drawing :-O

Anyway, glad you guys dig the art so much.

Mike
