... It's weird, but whenever I see sideburns, I don't think 'X-Men...' ... I think 'Inspector Javert.' Y'know, Les Miserables? <XD

GOD I'm such a fangirl.

Oh WOW. I love Kitty and Emma and their complicated relationship, and the movement and composition of this cover really shows so much of that.

Incredible! Another great work. Love that background you do, never seen anyone draw backgrounds like that before. Is that a stock piece or do you draw a different one each time?

I used the same style of background for the covers of Uncanny X-Men 526-529 to tie the story arc together. Each background is drawn uniquely for the corresponding cover.

You kinda like your new background pattern as I see :lol: but it work pretty well in fact :)

Are you still drawing the interiors too ?I often crossed Whilce Portacio's work recently.

I will start on Uncanny again on the arc after the arc after this one! Confused? Whilce is drawing 526-529, Greg Land is doing 530-533/4 and then me - something like that!

Oh and Katherine is looking pretty badass. Can she access the part of her subconscious housing her bad ass Ninja skills yet?

Hey! How is is that Betsy Braddock was a(nother) boring psychic and was made an irresistible sexpot ninja, but not Kitty who is legitimately a ninja? Oh Marvel, you kill me.

:iconterrydodson:
TerryDodson Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Professional General Artist
The easy answer is that Kitty has been portrayed as the young teen X-Men girl for so long, that the transition to irresistible sexpot is a bit of stretch, but there's no reason not to portray her as tough and sexy now - which is what I try to do.

Yeah, it's kind of hit and miss. I know that Wheedon and Cassady did some things to advance and mature the character, but like always those changes go away with the creative team that created them. My hypothetical question was more commentary on how changes are made and dashed upon the rocks as quickly as it takes to close the cover on the issue you're reading.

I like how you portray her, strong and sexy. IMO she's the star of this cover, not Emma.
