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."
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
