Just wanted to pop a comment about this book. It is seriously one of the most beautifully done books I've ever seen, and the use of traditional mediums is stunning. I love your depiction of Jean Grey, she's one of my favourite X-Men, and this book is a must have. Nice work! :D

I love this. There is something about superhero's and water colors that work so well. I guess it really hearkens back to those conceptual illustrations from the 50's and 60's on future tech that just makes these images so powerful! Thank you for sharing!

This is amazing, its almost like you're one of Marvel's artists! I do have to laugh at Cyclops when I look at the panel that's a close up of his face, because it looks like he's wearing lipstick. But this is probably the best fan art of anything Marvel that I have ever seen.

Extremely nice work. If I had one thing I would mention though, the color of Cyclops' lips in his closeup is so similar to Jean's, so light, that he appears to be wearing lipstick...or, he looks really feminine I would say. Just a thought.

Being a fan of alex ross' art, and unsure if you'd take this as a compliment, but near spitting image. Amazing work.

This is beautiful; not only for the wonderful artwork, but also simply by merit of being watercolor work in the comic world.
Now, I'll admit that I don't read a lot of the the big comic books, sticking with things like The Maxx, Transmetropolitan, etc etc, but ... I'd really thought that the whole comic industry had just up and shifted to digital art. That it hasn't, or at least, that it seems to make exception in the case of such beautiful work, makes me happier than you can imagine.

Would you mind if I ask: do you find that you take a longer time to complete a page than those colouring digitally do? Personally, I think it's worth the added investment if it does, but I'm very curious how quickly a professional like yourself (:>;) can churn out the watercolors.

Gosh, please ignore the funny orange winking emote, there was only meant to be a closing parentheses there. I do wish I could disable emotes and prevent such unsightly messes.
