x-men annual cover by dusty-abell x-men annual cover by dusty-abell
old wrap-around cover i did for marvel working under michael golden as art director. busted it out in 2 days and it shows. still, it had a wonky purple color hold applied to the black line-art on the final printed piece and kind of lost alot of what little it had going for it as a result. here it is unobscured by logos or bad coloring!

Kudos on the X-Men recap. :)

There are moments here I had forgotten about in years.

Anyway, for a 2 day job, and with that much information to squeeze in, it looks pretty awesome.

Man, very nice work. I love the oldstyle. I have gotten so tired of looking at.... Now I know other artist on here are going to curse me... but.. its the truth. Anime has become boring. It's good to see someone go old school and pull it off.

it was mostly not wanting to let michael golden , who gave me the gig down! i worship the ground he walks on artistically and did what i was capable of doing at the time to get the job done on time, and drew geraci did an awesome turn around on the inks as well, so big up to drew too.

WOW, you have so many characters and different versions of characters in this one piece I had to take time to look at each element and take it all in. Sorry to hear it had a bad coloring job. That had to be very frustrating. If you were to color this yourself in your animated style that you have other pieces done in, I bet it would look great and would really "POP" out.

im all for changing the color of the ink to enhance the illustration but yeah changing it all to purple seems like an terrible choice, and that pretty much destroys the color gamut when purple is the darkest the lines get.
