Phoenix X-Men 1 Cover by RichardCox Phoenix X-Men 1 Cover by RichardCox
A part of a Heroes Con 2012 pre-con commission, this Phoenix is Copic markers, white ink, and colored pencil on a sketch cover X-Men #1.

These covers can be really hit or miss in regards to how well they take Copic markers, and even ink. I think it has something to do with the sheen or gloss on the board. And it varies from run to run. In fact, I know artists who flat-out won't do sketch covers as a result. This X-Men #1 blank was honestly great though. Best of the sketch cover stock I've used. I think I was really able to work well with it, having a minimal of problems.

I gotta say... the blue hue is a really refreshing change from the usual green or red. Also the cool shades instead of the fiery glow give her a very interesting feel.
I really love this.

I'm cutting back on my commissions this year, but some year I'll get on you prelist, I don't like Phoenix and this kicks ass.

I'm not a big Jean Grey fan in general, but I've come to discover I can draw Phoenix pretty well.

And we've been talking about a Loki for you for what, 3 years now? I've learned patience. :p

I'm ready for it. I've designed your Loki in my head like 3 times already. You're lucky I don't just do it as an auction piece. ;P Seriously, I kid. At your leisure. But you have to stop and say hi in a couple weeks.

Forgot to add that that maybe if you changed the position of the leg in front n a flatter perspective it would look a little less confusing(hope I made sense XD sometimes it's really hard for me to explain things)

The picture is nice from how you colored it but from the waist down what is she doing with her legs?
It seems like a really awkward position plus I don't really know what she is doing.
