Stormy Weather

Well, she's done. She's late, but she's done. I really had a lot of fun with Storm and there are a few other drawings of her that I'd be interested in inking and coloring as well. Maybe I'll revist them someday when there's more than 24 hours in a day.

The reflected light sources are ok, but I would have liked to have spent more time on them. If I do that, though, I'll just keep skipping the gym and before you know it I'll weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 pounds. "Boy, that fat guy sure draws well!" No thanks.

I got sidelined with some headache/neck ache isssues on this one and had to just stop for a while and then pace myself. I'll spare you the medical diagnosis, but I will say that it is not, in fact, a tumor and I'm going to live.

I have to admit I didn't know much about storm outside of the rare bits I'd picked up from the year I collected X-Men comics during Joe Madureira's run and whatever else I scraped together for the movies. It was fun to do a little research and learn of her African Priestess origins and the time she spent in Cairo. I tried to throw little bits of that into her costume. Good times.

And now it's time to rest for a while. :)

This is her best costume ever by far.
Nicely done, dude.

No idea why that posted twice, I swear I only hit the button once!

Thanks, Chris! I'm going to pretend that you liked Storm's costume so much you intentionally posted the comment twice!

This is better than most of the outfits she has had in the comics. Nice work.
