This scene has been commissioned a few times now, and it always seems fresh and exciting.  This might be my favorite appearance of Nightcrawler in a commission yet.  A big congrats to the owner and thanks for sharing!

Can never go wrong with a Savage Land commission. Really like Nightcrawler and Cyclops.

Wow, I love this one...probably my favorite of all the Savage Land pieces.  Wolverine and Storm look especially good.

Gorgeous!
Rich in detail, easy on the eyes, packed and easy to read.
Just gorgeous.

I love seeing Wolverine's boots presented so believably here. I think you and Paul Smith are the only artists who make those boots look spectacular to me. They're an odd design which somehow becomes AWESOME in your hands.
