Took a few looks to realize that Nightcrawler was teleporting out of the jaws of danger!  Awesome!

This is Rocksome!!!  I love how most of the characters appear to be enjoying themselves in the face(s) of danger!  THIS is the X-men I know and love.

Excellent.

I'm always glad to see Banshee show up. It's an example of what I call the Adam Cartwright phenomenon. Adam on BONANZA, like Banshee in the X-Men, was the character who was gone by the time of the first episodes/ issues I saw, so I found them more interesting when I encountered them as I went back to earlier installments.

I really like it -- brings back some awesome memories of a great period of comics.

JB -- just curious.  The commission request listed the characters wanted, so I assume you charge by the character (as most artists do) and then charge for a background (as most do).  Then there's charges for pencil or inking or coloring, etc.

The request just sort of told you to have the chracters fighting dinosaurs (plural) -- was this an additional charge element to draw dinosaurs, even though it was The Savage Land?

I just ask since I can see people asking for commisison scenarios to get "free" elements -- "Please draw Superman protecting the crowd from  Lex Luthor's energy blast and Darksied fighting Green Lantern catching debris to stop it from falling on the innocent bystanders".

 

 

 

Oh -- and the Adam Cartwright phenomenon is similar to the Chuck Cunnigham situation from Happy Days.

Titanic !
What a commission !!!! So much happening !

Just one commission for Mr Byrne, I belive Colossus is the one X-Men you draw the more often very slightly different than during the 70's (less bunky ?). Is this a choice or is it because Terry Austin is not inking your commissions ?

BTW, I miss the "metal" reflects on Colossus armor (panel against Pierce for example)...

There is a flat base rate, which varies with the size of the commission -- 11x17, 18x24, 20x30, 30x40. That rate includes, if I remember correctly, six figures/characters. The backgrounds are included, unless the customer gets wildly specific. There is an additional charge for each figure/character over the basic six. On cover recreations/reimaginings, the logo and other cover dress count as a figure.

Many times I throw in additional stuff for free, if it fits the drawing. Basically tho, what you ASK for you PAY for.

Get in touch with Jim Warden for the full details.

The amount of metal technique I put on Colossus depends on what he's standing in front of. In a shot like this one, for instance, where the background is very busy, a lot of metal technique might cause him to get lost against it.

This is awesome!!! It's my favorite storyline from your run. As he should, Wolverine steals the show.
