Dark Phoenix - Color by mijka Dark Phoenix - Color by mijka
Dark Phoenix, of Marvel's X-Men fame as the single most over-done, beat into the ground, oh-my-god-we-can't-take-it-anymore-but-we-STILL-love-it fame.

I was studying, I got bored. I doodled. Then I traced onto more serious cardstock grade paper and proceeded to ink with India ink and Microns.

Color is provided courtesy of Painter X and Photoshop, by way of a nifty Intuos 3.

Textures used include (what I think is) Hubble Telescope photography, for the nebula, several custom textures of my own and a glitter-texture from :iconkuschelirmel-stock:

I realize the color job isn't quite what one might call perfect, however, on the upside, I do sort of like the chaotic effect somewhat inherent in the lack of tidyness and perfection.

'sides, I've wanted to upload this for a while, and don't seem to be getting my act together to tidy it up :P

Dark Phoenix is copyright Marvel Comics etc etc etc.

Despite my incessant griping, the final result came out pretty close to what I was hoping for, all told, so I'm glad you like it, too.

I like the way you have the phoenix wrapping around her and over the back of her head - lovely composition - hot colours!

She is utterly diabolical in this. I love the smirk. The hair to phoenix is a very nice touch as well.

The smirk actually worked WAY better in the original sketch (before I cleaned and inked it). Her lips were fuller and the dimple played better. I'd actually fixed it before a semi-random Photoshop crash lost an hour or two's work.

I am glad you like, though :}
