New Coloring Page – Cable! (Don’t Spread, Color Instead)

Leave a comment

I really liked making this latest coloring page. I challenged myself with designing a gun from the future AND getting the proportions correct. It’s non other than Nathan Summers himself, Cable!

Cable was fun to draw because, first he has an augmented arm. I added the texture of metal (which I didn’t do on my previous Colossus coloring page) and added a background. I tried to make it look like a war-torn, post-apocalyptic landscape. I think it turned out pretty good. This was my first time designing firearms too. I made two bigger than life, from-the-future, blasters!

This trailer is jam packed with action scenes but it IS Deadpool so everyone reading this post knows there’s loose cannon humor in this posted trailer. Proceed with discretion!

I have only watched bits and pieces of the movie Deadpool 2. I still have to see it in its entirety. I didn’t know the original character of Cable was created by Chris Claremont in 1986 while the adult identity (which is the one I’m referring to) was created by writer Louise Simonson and artist/co-writer Rob Liefeld.  That incarnation of Cable first appeared in The New Mutants #87 (March 1990).

In my humble opinion, I think Josh Brolin was really well cast as a live-action Cable. It isn’t easy to live up to the public’s expectations of a cherished comic character’s persona.


Check out this AWESOME Cable coloring page I recently produced! I think it rocks! I’m so happy with the result, I think I’m going to make it into a full color print for 2020 Phoenix Fan Fusion (It was postponed until September!)
