Uncanny X-Men 504 Cover Detail by TerryDodson Uncanny X-Men 504 Cover Detail by TerryDodson
A Josephine Baker inspired Mohawk Era Storm, the British (and Original) Psylocke, a Clara Bow inspired Emma Frost and Rogue as a Bellhop!

Since a lot of you are enjoying this cover, I'd thought I post up a more detailed view of some it. I did a lot of changes between the pencil stage and the final color stage - including redraws of eyes and mouths - just subtle little stuff - on my lineart layer in Photoshop.

Also, you can see how much of the lineart I change in color as well, really helps add another layer of depth and is my favorite thing in Photoshop! A lot of the time I start changing the lineart color before I've barely begun coloring the piece.

Colored in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Intuos Graphics Tablet.

Fantastic - I will echo what others have said and make a point of the skillful and beautiful rendering. As you yourself have noted the subtly is what makes this collage. There is a deceptive simplicity to it. Nice work

Truly a quartet of lovely ladies, gorgeously rendered. It's been so long since I've seen the original Psylocke I had forgotten what she looked like. Thank you so much for the beautiful reminder - and for the saucy Rogue as well!

I like how everyone forgets Psylocke is Captain Britain's sister and had her mind transferred into a sexy ninja. I didn't really like her old look I never understood the pink hair.

It was basically just a mutant thing. Like Polaris having green hair. I mean, Psylocke's current Asian body has purple hair. Go figure.

True, I figured she'd be blond like her brother but then again using Polaris as an example her hair doesn't match her (maybe) brother and sister, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch. I don't know if they were established as family in the regular 616 continuity.

I really appreciate the level of thought you put into the hair styles of the girls. Really cool and interesting. I can totally see the Josephine Baker influence but I'm not familiar enough with the other ladies mentioned to know, so i'll take your word on it ^-^

Thanks!
