Haha interesting problem. A hard style to apply to a kids face.
Both very well drawn. I like the almost sketchy style you've used for Cable. Might try tackling this child cartoon conundrum.

I love Cable.

Yea I will agree the kid looks out of place, but still, it's pretty sweet.

Though it might just be the colouring that makes the kid look odd, eh? Like, is he standing there thinking of someone... or is that someone's ghost or...?

Meh. I dunno. I'm not the professional here. I do find it a little confusing though.

Actually, you would probably know. I'm poor with anatomy, but do kids have the same size of heads as adults?

She looks really cool, dude! It kind of reminds me of Jade from that Jackie Chan cartoon. . . Jeff Matsuda i think was the name of the artist. . . it looks really cool!

I think it is awesome. The contrast between the two art styles shows an awesome contrast between the two characters.

That is so amazingly kewl. Do you ever go into a comic book store with your friends and point at a comic and say, "I drew that."? Cause i so would if i were as good as you. Also do you do the entire comics or just the covers? Sorry I'm asking alot of questions, I just feel like I met someone famous.

WTH man? They let you get that close to the old days, but not all the way? You COULD have snuck in bigger shoulder/knee pads... At least they let you hide the feet, LOL.

There aren't enough Xs on that little cutie! I can still see costume under all that! The TRUE X-character must be covered in a minimum of 15 at any given time.

(Clearly hasn't read the comic)

I guess it DOES look pretty kickass though...

She did come out pretty well...

I blame your editor from dropping the ball and NOT telling you you weren't X-TREME TO THE MAX! enough to "keep it real." *shakes head and sighs* What's the world coming to?

Must a deranged artist like myself start running about swiping and XTREME!ifying artwork?

dude I sketched the cover to Xforce 8 I really want to finish it but I got a call from the editor on a book I'm doing interiors on and they're started to turn up the heat. First it was "It's not on the books so whenever..." now it's all "Hey how's that coming can we get some pages..." I'm hesitant because this is my no HACKING ALLOWED book, I don't want any "Deadline art" in there the book is too cool I wanted to get at least 1/2 before I started sending them in so they don't get any ideas about rushing it out

;) I'm planning to start doing X-Force 3 this weekend, cause I've got one of those damned jobs that forces me to wake up before Mr. Sunrise. And, for some reason, to do a little work it seems... And, apparently, to actually stay awake while here... Bastards.

You know, I don't read the title, but I guess I definitely need to pick up whatever issue(s) you're doing interiors on. LOL, and was planning to wager me buying multiple issues if I (somehow) lost our little challenge. I assumed the pressure of having to beat an non-turbo pro would make you so nervous you'd crack, thus allowing my lesserian style to surpass you, LOL. But then, I'm arrogant and enjoy talking smack.

LOL, just don't run three months late (*coughs* Ultimates3 *coughs*) and I'm sure you'll be a-okay. They have you doing your own colors for the issue, or are they passing that off to someone else?

HAHAHAHAaaaa actually it's a one-shot that's 2 YEARS late from another artist who said -"Meh not going to get to this I'm too busy, you can have it back...." and I was like HAND IT OVER and my editor did me a solid

Now, correct me if I'm off-base due to my just being all around unconventional on EVERYTHING I do, but if this is your primary job how can you NOT have time to do it? I know it's COMPLETELY bad politics, but do you want to throw him under the bus, should I guess (and burn potential future bridges of my own), or should I just nod and go sycophantic?

Just putting this out there (cause I say it EVERYWHERE), but if you can meet something resembling a schedule so books are obscenely late that need to load you up and give you the big bucks. Or, I'll use you as a frontman and put you to use for MY nefarious purposes. MWAHAHAHAHA!

Congrats on the assignment tho. LOL, hopefully you get it done in less than two years.. I'm sure it'll be "teh awesomesawce" or whatever it is the kids say these days.. ;)

Yeah I won't blast him but I've got zero sympathy. I work full time in games 9-10 hrs a day, do monthly covers and I'm almost 1/2 done on the book (will be by Comic-con). To his credit, he wanted to paint it all, which is awesome but it'll never come out and by the time it does who'll care y'know?! Painted books only work if you're Alex Ross, he knows how to lay down the right amount of detail evenly so as not to break the flow. Dudes like me are trying to make a cover out of each panel....nope

I actually like her. I think she has a lot of character and that makes her more interesting to look at.
