JB, have we reached the tipping point yet where you've drawn "true" Jean Grey more vs Phoenix or Half-Jean? I've been trying to do the math

Hm...

I think someone else will have to do that count!

Not to take anything away from him or his talent, but I also wouldn't doubt if computer rendering isn't involved at some level

It bears at least a few photoshop hallmarks, from the gaussian blur on the foreground plants to the lens flare on her right leg.

Didn't look yesterday, so was hoping for two pages today. Only to discover -- oh, tra'al, no such luck! Still, that is a cool final page. The vastness of that gas giant squeezed into that panel at the top and the alien crowd scenes are an interesting change of scenery.

Just as a rough estimate based on issue appearances, 

it's 41 issues for Phoenix and Half-Jean (27 appearances in Marvel and 14 issues here) 

vs 24 issues for Real Jean (Hidden Years + 286 + issue 15)...

by panels it may change the numbers when you look at flashbacks, etc.

Regardless, both versions are the best drawn women ever and Jean in this issue has recaptured all the magic (my 12 year old self fell madly in love with Jean circa 129 - 137 and that flame was reignited during Hidden Years..lol)

Truly amazing how you can create the same look in characters you haven't touched in decades

@Peter: I don't doubt photoshop, but I meant a bit more...like ray-tracing from 3D models.

By the way, my mind was BLOWN at the thought of a Jean Grey-centric "Miss Marvel" series!  Talk about an alternate timeline if that had happened!  Are there any character sheets or proposals for that series still around?  I've seen Dave's variant costumes for Jean circa 101, were any of those for Jean's series or just Phoenix variants?  (like the one where Jean is wearing a Storm-like cape)

Gotcha. Your use of the word rendering was more specific than I comprehended at first glance, but I see what you meant.

It looks like Mr. Artgerm doesn't 'need' photoshop...

the tools don't really matter anyway, a weak drawing with all the tricks in the world is still going to be a weak drawing.

Rebecca: ".I.t looks like Mr. Artgerm doesn't 'need' photoshop... ."

Exactly. Criticizing an artist for using Photoshop is like criticizing an artist for using a pen. Photoshop is a just another tool, it does not produce the artwork by itself. It takes an artist to know how to use the tool to get the effect he or she desires.

Who criticised him for using PS? There were some observations about method. No criticism.

Peter, Steven's comments...

"...Not to take anything away from him or his talent, but I also wouldn't doubt if computer rendering isn't involved at some level---perhaps just to generate a reference. The lighting is just too good for drawing purely from imagination (or so I would think)..."

...come across as a critical accessment of using Photoshop to enhance art to me. 

Why would using "computer rendering" be something that would take away from an artist's talent, after all? No need to preface an observation in such a manner if one wasn't suggesting using a computer to assist in rendering is somehow wrong to do.
