Xhibit: It's Valentine's Week! :D ♥

Firstly, a very belated Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Hope it was an awesome day for you guys! Check out the Valentine's Day X-related artwork I created this week here...

Some of you may know that in order to satisfy the comic book (& especially movie) nerd in me I'm part of several comic book/X-Men groups on Facebook. I joined Comic Book Nerds Are Hot quite while ago & they've only recently started this weekly drawing "assignment" under the Artist's Assemble banner, wherein every week members submit art for a character/comics-related theme decided by fellow group member, Adam Bayes, who happens to be an amazing artist himself! It's just for fun, no winners are announced or anything like that...

In the first week members submitted X-character Mimic's drawing, the week after we drew Batman's nature-loving nemesis, Poison Ivy. With Valentine's Day being just the next day, Adam decided last Monday that the only suitable topic for this week would be to create an artwork that would translate love in the comics world. After reading that, I immediately thought Rogue & Gambit, but soon after getting a cool idea for a Phoenix & Cyclops drawing, I finally chose to draw them!

The story behind this art is that Cyclops still misses his long gone first (& imo ONLY) true love- Jean Grey...If ya like, you can download the wallpaper (1280x1024) I created for it below:

Not much sources of inspiration for this drawing (cos concept-wise it isn't too detailed), but I will give credit to the following:
*UncannyXmen for their brilliant costume galleries that I check now & then whenever I help to get my characters' costumes juuust right in my drawings.
*Mega-Tex for their awesome gallery of fire textures! Used a whole bunch of images from it for the fiery heart border...
*SuicideCrew's DeviantArt for the fiery background used inside the heart...
*And I LOVE that love quote that I got from Valentine-Quotes! It's so appropriate for Jean Grey & Cyclops since they've parted due to her death...

Do lemme know in the comments if you liked the wallpaper, or if there's any way I can improve my art, cos there's always room for improvement! I'll be posting wallpapers for the next X-related art I create for Artists Assemble as well, so watch out!

  1. Nice work. I agree. Jean getting with Wolverine in X2 just felt wrong.
