Seems like I'm in a bit of a marvel kick these days. I thought it'd be cool to do some Spiral fan art over the weekend.
|Dance, you sweet lady, dance!|
I'll be honest, I first fell in love with Spiral from watching people play her in Marvel Vs Capcom 2. She has a bizarre dance for an idle animation, and she has really weird looking moves.
Readers who have good memory will remember I talked about my attraction towards weird fighting game characters. I wondered for a while why she was so weird in MvC2, and one day I ended up on her Wikipedia page. Apparently she has to do these elaborate hand gestures and dances to conjure up her cosmic powers, allowing her to teleport, skip dimensions, summon swords, etc. WHICH IS TOTALLY AWESOME. And that's pretty much when i fell in love with this character.
Last week I was passing by my co-worker's desk and saw this. Pretty old news at this point, but I haven't been paying too much attention to what's going on in comics these days. Spiral's part of the Uncanny X-Force! I was stoked to see her again! Seems like she's some sort of raver in the series, which is kind of a cool/silly re-imagining of her cosmic dances, but either way I'm actually interested in reading an American comic!
As promised, here are some more desk shots. I'm finally done with the "build-up." NOW IT'S TIME FOR ACTION!!! I still have a ton more pages to finish before this chapter is done. But hold on to your horses, it'll all be worth it in the end!

Also, I'm working on another drawing project (doing the spiral fan-art has inspired me to do an ink painting. More on this in the future.) I dug up one of my old sketchbooks. Finding it still had a few blank pages, I started to sketch in it. But while I was flipping through it, I found a drawing I haven't shown anyone! This is a really old drawing, but I was so psyched to see it. I remember this drawing took me almost a week to finish, and I had to look at a TON of reference for it, too.
I'M DEFINITELY DOING MORE DRAWINGS LIKE THIS!!!
