I've got Kitty Pryde and Nightcrawler too, waiting there for me, yes I do!

The next commission for Jake and hopefully it makes up for the last debacle. He asked for a "cheesecake" Kitty Pryde and this is what I came up with. This was actually a lot of fun and I'm quite pleased with it. I like the the angle and the overall clean approach, plus the little noodley design elements were fun. So there ya go Jake, I would like to think this makes up for my previous lackluster performance.

So I guess Iron Fist vs. Sagat is next....

So another commission for Jake. The idea being, Cyclops trying to keep it together while Jean and Emma both trying to get his attention. The one on the top is mine, which I'm not entirely happy with. I think I was just off the day I did the initial layout, so it seems a little dead and boring to me (sorry Jake). As I was almost finished the mighty Doug Mahnke (thanks for not mentioning it earlier Doug!) suggested I might have tried something like the sketch he did on the bottom. His sketch, which took him only a few minutes, I like ten times more than mine, but then again he is a pro.

Now onto the Kitty Pryde commission! I promise it will suck less!

Jake is helping me pay rent...

Here is another commission for Jake in Reno. This time he wanted Arisia and Kilowog, but I threw in Natu and Mogo to help the composition. It turned out to be a lot of fun except Arisia's aura got a little annoying. I like it more than the Elektra/Lady Bullseye piece, there's just more energy and movement in this one. Once again, thanks to Doug and Pat for all their suggestions and input.
