Normally, I only draw one figure on a page. With the chibi style, it’s hard to draw figures together because of the enlarged head. The bodies look too far spaced apart. However, I had to draw Gambit with Rogue! That is a classic love story and they are two of my favorite X-Men. Enjoy!
These are the first 10 prints available online through our Etsy shop which means I have to come up with some new stuff.
So far I’ve gotten suggestions for a new Harley and Joker (although I already have Arkham Asylum Harley and Joker) those two are a hot item. I’ve also had a few requests for a new Aquaman. Do you have an idea for a new print? Let me know in the comments!
So I didn’t get to show my new art at Dev Con this past weekend. YES, I called it Dev Con. I think that law suit about using the abbreviated “con” and copyrighting it is ridiculous. Anyway, I had finished Gambit but didn’t get to show him off. Now, I really like him as a character when I started reading X-Men (back in the 90’s!) He could charge objects with an energy blast. He always kept a deck of cards in his pocket because they were small, convenient, and plentiful for someone with that particular power – he has 52 charges! I also liked his French/ Cajun accent when he spoke to Rogue. I was soooo upset when the Bryan Singer movies hooked-up Rogue with Iceman! Everyone knows the eternal love struggle in the comics is between Rogue and Gambit. It’s classic forelorn love. Anyway, he was my favorite X-Man and from the requests at comic conventions, a lot of other people like him as well. So I had to draw him. I did have a slight issue with the black eyes. When my manager saw them she freaked out but I explained that Gambit has mutated eyes. That’s one subtle thing about him that can be unsettling. He really can’t hide that he’s a mutant. And his eyes are red which is an emotionally charged color in our society. This was a challenge but fun to draw and I hope you like it.
