Sheez what a stunner. Love those X-Men. Everything about this piece is amazing but the ground and foliage is nuts. All I can say now is, wow.

Awesome! 

The facial expressions are great (especially the Beast's);  I like Bobby's ice trail path; Wolverine seems to be perfect.

Is that a Triceratops, over Logan's right elbow? It seems to fade in and out,  very hypnotizing.

JB any favorite dinosaur to draw?

Yes, this one is for Jim Warden. I'd told him about an image that had been itching in my brain, and he ever-so-kindly invited me to scratch it in a commission for him. So I did.

I told Jim, tho, that as I was working on it I began to realize the picture in my mind's eye was actually in "CinemaScope," so at some point I will have to try again, if I can find a piece of stock 18" by 6 feet!!

Meanwhile, Jim was happy enough to take this preliminary sketch...

The ones with the bigger frills are called something else, aren't they?

They are. Pentaceratops or Styracosaurus maybe? The horned dinos are a pretty large grouping, some with pretty strange horns. They're quite fascinating to me!

Tremendous! I say these are all the X-Men you'll ever need.

I love the expression on Colossus' little dance partner's face. And Kitty. And the little dino nibbling on Logan. And that Pterosaur that, disturbingly, looks like it's smiling.

All this, and an exploding volcano in the background!

Matt and I visited JB this past August and were discussing our next commission.  I knew JB had the "Dinosaur Stampede" X-Men illustration in the back of his mind for several years and Matt loves dinosaurs, so this seemed like a perfect choice for a commission!

We gave JB total Carte Blanche and the finished illustration blows away any vision I had in my mind of how it would look!  I had the pleasure of seeing this beauty in progress (and nearly completed) this past Saturday when several friends and I visited JB.  I spent a good deal of time marveling at the details and can't wait to see the finished version when Matt and I make our next trip to JB's to pick up the original. 

I was planning on waiting until our visit before letting Matt see the completed commission, but today is his 16th birthday!  JB's timing in the posting this piece was so perfect, I think I will let Matt see it in advance!!

As always, many thanks to JB for the wonderful artwork!!!

WOW!!!!! What an amazing commission!!!! JB, you not only hit this out of the ball park, but out of this world!!

In an alternate reality, JB would've started this memorable run on X-MEN with his artistic skill at THIS LEVEL!!!

-C!

Congrats to Jim and Matt.

Happy Birthday, Matt.

This looks wonderful.

As much as I enjoy seeing the X-Men nothing makes me more happier to see the original team by JB. They are my favorite.

Love the dinosaurs all around especially those near Wolverine.

What an amazing piece! The best Angel and Kitty I've ever seen and I absolutely love the look on Hank's face. And while I normally prefer JB's stuff in B&W, I'd actually be interested in seeing this one in color. Something about it just seems to lend itself to color. Best birthday gift ever! Enjoy, Matt.
