REMAKE: X-Men Freakangels by PaulSizer REMAKE: X-Men Freakangels by PaulSizer
This week's REMAKE/REMODEL challenge from Warren Ellis' WHITECHAPEL forums.
Here's the brief:
"In a single illustration, capture The X-Men in the style of FREAKANGELS.
Our flooded, steam-powered, post-apocalypse London... with X-Men in it.
You may want to consider that FREAKANGELS wouldn't be FREAKANGELS without the watery, "cel-shaded" colour design and palette that Paul created.
Also, obviously, that the characters would require a complete redesign to fit into the FREAKANGELS world."
SO...
Here's my X-team for post flood survival:
Top row: Cannonball (air recon), Cuckoos (telepathy), Cypher/Warlock (language/translation/communications)
Bottom row: Storm (weather control/crops), Forge (technology/fabrication), Rogue (muscle)

Pencils/Inks: MangaStudio EX 3.0
Colors: PhotoShop CS2

Lovely collective there. I especially like how you kept the technology feel of 'angels.

That was first and foremost when I chose my team. No Wolverine, no Magneto, no Cyclops, no X-23, no Prof. X, no Phoenix. I really did try to think about who would cover the bases for actual survival, so I figured weather control, tech, defense, communication and brute strength. I did have an idea to include Madrox just to have lots of workers, but I didn't feel like drawing a bunch of Multiple Men...
Thanks for the good words!

Thanks, but truthfully, yours won the thread in my book. Frequentcontributor's was a very close second. I love all the details you put in.
