Phoenix Rising by J-Estacado Phoenix Rising by J-Estacado
That's more like it :D
[é] 27. 08. 2009
fixed.... nearly 70 % of the whole pic:
reviewed hair (now get more realistic light source), colors (I especially make the her clothes more contrasted and red; as requested) ; cleaned lines.... add FX....
-----------------------------

I saw something interesting in the last page of the last Uncanny X-men I bought , so It remembered me It was time to do some Marvel stuff :lol:

-------------
I've done a phoenix and a dark phoenix years ago.
Problem is my most viewed deviation is the phoenix, and that was based on an Adam Hughes drawing of lara croft...
---------------

so... mmm. I'ts time to submit a phoenix fully of my own.
It was supposed to be the classical , but it ended as the dark one because.... she has more style :D

Don't ask me how I put the colors on that one: I have no clues ( like 70% of the time) but i'm more than happy with the way it ended; really !
for the composition I kept some kind of art nouveau mood, without using any tricks of it... that's hard to describe, but if you're familiar with the AN style, you'll get the clues ;)

Drawing and inking on classical photocopies paper (yeah, most of the bristol I use suck at the inking step; and beside, I don't like to pencil on too smooth surfaces)

colors on photoshop 7.0 / wacom. <b/>

Jean grey/ the dark Phoenix are ©Marvel

Comme toujours les couleurs bien sympas, la compo aussi! Par contre j'ai un doute anatomique mais vu la contre plongée assez sophistiquée c'est compréhensible :)
Bravo *more phoenix!!*

Very nicely done, I'm excited to see a new piece by you. I love what you did with her hair (always was a sucker for a redhead :D ).

I love the art nouveau influence (in all your pieces), both in the background styling and the inclusion of the flowers. I like the phoenix behind Jean; I'm guessing you added the flames later on the computer.

They should have Bristol board paper that's both smooth and rough, but as long as your work turns out the way you like it, I guess it doesn't matter what medium you use.

Marvelous job on another masterpiece,
still looking forward to another DC girl though *hint, hint* :D

I do work on bristol (actually I've tested all the variety of paper that are sold) sometimes, but If it's not a high finition (250 gr or more ) inks tend to dribble if I use crowquill ,and then I loose a good regular line

I also used comic board from EON, but the 2008's paper sucked soooooo much, regardless to the 2007's who were top snotch.

Beside... well; I don't like that much having all those blue stuff here and there, not a problem on comics page (it's even pretty cool) but on cover or pin-up I don't like that.

So...Now I use GOOD photocopie paper:
first : it's cheaper than the other ( wayyyyy cheaper )
second : pencils grip really well, and inks are cool. maybe it tend to absord a bit too much inks (so marker are to prohibit) but that's ok :D


Yeah I've added fire FX later, for sure :)

It would probably look a little better if the red on her costume was redder. As it is, it looks really faded.
