ComicBox Ultimate X-Girls by mikemayhew ComicBox Ultimate X-Girls by mikemayhew
This was the cover to an edition of France's ComicBox magazine. It features the Ultimate versions of these X-characters. The original art was 11X17 in acrylic, but the background is digital in photoshop, as well as the lighting.

The negative space around the figures was for the text on the magazine cover.

Looks REALLY good, except these things:

1) Storm - her face is too "manly" or not feminine enough
2) The other two should have - what we photographers call a "catch light" in both eyes, instead of only one.

I like it, But storm's upper body looks weird (maybe too broad, more of a lithe female preference for me) and her face seems off somehow. Emmas face looks too manly and her eyes seem to droop.

The other girl however (can't pick her out. Is that jubilee or rogue? or perhaps someone else....) Is perfect, so sexy and lifelike.

Very dynamic! The facial expressions are very well done on the front two characters. Just a hint of arrogance in their demeanor.

So I was looking on line to see if I could find a copy of that particular Aibrush Action, and I ran across this nice sentence about you just search for your name I love Alex Ross but I do feel I have to agree with this statement ;)

very cool, my only thing is that I think the Storm's lightning should cast more light on everybody. and the shadows on Storm's face are a bit too harsh. Jean looks amazing though

A few minor MIIINOR things i've noticed. Left girl's eyes, her right pupil doesn't have a highlight (i know it doesn't always work that way but she looks like the eyes don't match. While Emma, has a bit of a lazy eye (as well as lacking a highlight). otherwise fantastic work.
