I truly LOVE the way you brought to life some of the older versions of some of my favorite lady's of Marvel Universe.
Mohawk Storm<- Love the pose the face and the flow of cloth and hair color is perfect
Classic Betty <;Psylock><-would have liked to see her butterfly effect shown and maybe puffer hair, Don't misunderstand i still love her and appreciate her combined look
Rogue, Love the fact she appears to me in front with her classic late 80s look
the Scarlet Witch,I actually really like her the classic way you did her here but honestly love the latest gypsie look she has been sporting pre- house of M.
Kitty Pryde, VERY happy Pryde was put into this piece, she has always had a pull on my heart, not even sure why, i guess she was always written as a ghost and with her power and recent connection in Exiles i love her that much more.
Tigra,love the pose you gave her but fan wise i was never a big one of her, I guess after wonder woman <cheetara>
Hell-Cat, I really appreciate Hell-Cat being put in and her pose is amazing
the Wasp,never really connected with the Wasp but this is a amazing shot of her.. <random side request... make a pic of spider man trapping the wasp and ant man in a web>
Dazzler, I wasn't sure who she was at 1st, persona wise i think dazzler would push for frontal position being a performer.
Spider Woman <Jessica Drew>, I love her pose very defensive yet powerful stance. in this pic she makes me think of her as the leader, even with 2 major telepaths and now that i think about it they all have been leaders of teams... Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us in DA. My eyes thank you.
I gave 5 stars on all but<<Originality Only took half a star off being pre-existing persona's and <<Impact half a star off because I would have liked to see some background, but i still LOVE the shadowing.
What do you think?

Very awesome! I love every bit of your water colour.

Unfortunatly I'm not too fond of the extremely thin bodies of the women. :(

An amazing piece of art work! I think you captured them all well with the exception of Rogue, her manic grin seems out of place and out of character.

I am digging all the old school outfits. it takes me back when i was reading the xmen from the 80's. great job. I paint with acrylics as well and have a question. How do you keep your paints from drying out while you are painting. I've tried mixing the paint extender stuff and it does not work for me. it makes the paint too watery. When you have time shoot me a message and keep up the good work.

If the acrylic is watered down enough it won't dry very fast. I don't use extenders. I water the acrylic down and apply it like watercolor in layers of washes.

thank you for the heads up. the extenders just lighten the paint too much for my taste. I will try the water thing al let you know what happens.
