Kitty Pryde! And Lockheed too!

Kitty Pryde & Lockheed © Marvel Entertainment

This is another commissioned piece for James. In case no one knows this, I love drawing Kitty and Lockheed. For this piece I went with Kitty's ability to walk on air. Coupled with her dance training, she got to be pretty graceful when doing this trick. All in all this was fun to do. Thanks for the commission James!

This is ink on an 11" x 17" sheet of bristol board.

Just for fun, here is the rough I did in my sketchbook for this piece. As you can see I flopped the final image. I thought it read better left to right.

This is Post #1321

Fantastic, Gene! You did a beautiful job with Kitty and the addition of Lockheed was a very nice surprise. Thanks so much!

The final piece has the correct pose. Maybe because we are used to reading from left to right?

Congrats James!

Poor Carlos - living vicariously through this post! ;)

Well done Gene, good choice to reverse the image!
