Dazzler Commission by MicahJGunnell Dazzler Commission by MicahJGunnell
Hey everyone! Sorry for falling off the face of DeviantArt for the last few weeks! As I said in my journal, I just got promoted to my first Directing position and it's been keeping me EXTREMELY busy. I'm hoping that I'll find a way to keep doing my weekly sketches, but at this point it's not looking promising in that regard. I am going to try though. Also hampering my output has been the fact that I think my 2 year old son stole my Cintiq pen, so I've ordered another that will arrive tomorrow. Those things are expensive!! Anyway, this is a commission I finally completed...Ink, colored pencil and white ink on gray paper. Hope you like!

Thanks Tong! It is definitely more of a challenge to get the look you want, but I actually find it more relaxing than digital because you can't keep changing it over and over. You really have to kind of just go with the flow and accept that you can't control every little detail as much as you might like, and that is strangely comforting. :)

I gotta spend a couple pages to re-familiarize myself with it. Gonna be doing the "phantom undos" for a while before I find a flow. xD

One of my favorite X-Men, and definitely one of the most underrated. Excellent work.

And congratulations on the directing job.

Why is Dazzler wearing an Emma Frost outfit?
Reply
:iconkaedegirl:
Kaedegirl Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Maybe she was impersonating Emma so she could get closer to the target of her mission?

I Honestly like when something " non-traditional" like this happens :3 illustration becomes less boring and tells a story we might not Know :p

Yeah, I was basically told to give my own take on her and not to go in the direction of the 70's style. This was more inspired by Chris Bachalo's design of her for Age of Apocolypse. Glad that some people appreciate it.

Thanks! Yeah, I miss posting too! I was working on this in the very little spare time I had the last couple weeks...I planned to do it on my break between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers, but then my break changed from 2 weeks to 2 days :) I'll post some more soon, thanks for looking! :)
