| The Dark Phoenix
Art therapy works. It really does <3
This started as a doodle in response to a really shitty weekend and it
turned being a pretty damn bitchin' piece (pun semi-intended) if I do
say so myself.
The Dark incarnation of Phoenix has almost always sported some
crazy-ass hair, so it gave me a chance to really cut loose.
During the colors I decided to make the hair two-toned to break
up the color scheme a bit more. It gave me a lot more work to do,
but I think the piece is better for it. The inks came out much
better than expected so I decided to keep the shading and highlights as
simple as possible, making sure the contrasts were kind of stark just
enough to accentuate the curves and the pose. A complicated piece
of art does wonders for taking your mind off of trivial crap.
I decided to switch the perspective from portrait to landscape for the
final piece. I wanted a crazy fire background. It's nothing
fancy, but it works. For the fire I made a clone silouette of
Dark Phoenix and colored it in like fire, and then went crazy with
blurr effects in a half dozen or so different directions. :3
