Hope Summers

So I've been moving all the past week into a new house which also means a sweet new studio. Right now it's a pile of boxes, but in time... more on that later though. The reason I'm posting is because, in the process of sorting and properly storing some old paintings, I came across this little piece. Though I can't remember exactly when it was done, I want to say about a year or so ago. It wasn't for any specific project, just that I had some me time and felt like doing some simple X-Men portraits and decided to kick it off with a relatively newer character: Hope Summers. I seem to remember having started a Wolverine as a follow-up before a wave of new deadlines and convention season hit me with the one-two and, in the end, this was the only one I actually finished. Why I didn't show it at the time I don't really know other that I probably meant to and just forgot. Which reminds me, I have some other pieces waiting to go online. Maybe once I get my SDCC prep finished.

Anyhow, it's pretty simple and straight forward, but I like it. Maybe once things calm down a bit I can get back into these. I've always wanted to do a proper Nightcrawler...

Don't know anything about X-Men, but I like this! Especially the blue colour of the background.

What are your SDCC plans this year?

And don't forget to post photos of your new studio!

Showing again this year with Daren Bader, are you going? I'll definitely post some studio shots once I have it a little more livable. I feel like i'm in a house of cardboard box furniture at the moment. Planning a move within a month of san diego was not the best decision i've ever made ;)

You should definately do a nightcrawler one, I'd love to see that! :)
