The X-Men by darkotaku The X-Men by darkotaku
BEFORE YOU READ ANYTHING ELSE!

This piece's amazing lineart was drawn by ~werder. While randomly browsing this site, I stumped upon this piece, and almost fell out of my chair. Since I wanted to colour something, but I didn't want to do my crap art, I just started on this piece. Having finished the piece, I asked him for permission, and he graciously accepted that I posted my work on it.

First time I ever did a comic-related colouring. And yup, it turned up to be cel-shaded. Must be a defect in my system somewhere =p This baby has been a lot of fun, and a lot of work too. Oh yeah. I had to do some research, and chose to go for colours based on the uniforms in X-Men Evolution. It seemed best for the outfits.

So, in closing: All characters are copyright of Marvel Comics (I think), the lineart is copyright of ~werder (I even moved his signature so it was still visible after the colours I did) and the colours were done by moi.

I just realized, this is probably sad if Kurt's hair is longer than mine, and I"m a girl....

WTF? I didn't comment this yet? I must've forgotten, sorry bud ^^;

X-cellent choice to stick the X-men Evolution costume colors. I don't think any other colours would've sufficed more. It's amazing how you managed to accomplish the cel shading on such a complex looking lineart

You did this piece justice, man. One :+fav: coming up ;)

They changed his colour in X-Men Evolution, for some reason. I used to think he was blue too. Kinda wierd, but that's the way it is.
