No offense, but the characters colors/uniforms blend in too much. I have to actually take the time to stop and take it all in. and then try to search on google for a much better pic of these characters for their distinctiveness and true colors...

Sweet!=) I like the way you did Polaris's powers. I hope Jamie doesn't get benched now that Alex and Lorna are back.

Thanks. I don't always work directly with PAD though, it's mostly the editors.

But you do have some contact with him,or only with the editors?BTW,have you redesign some carachter yet?

I have his email, but everything we do is through the editors because they have final say on what is going on the cover.

I redesigned all the character's costumes for the issue #200 renumbering. I haven't done Wolfsbane, Pip the Troll, Havok or Polaris yet though. The interior artists have also done their own tweaks too.

This is the way it should be, back to when Havok was in X-Factor in the late 80s

I did a double-take (which on the internet is pressing the back button real fast;then pressing the forward button faster) and was like, wait is that Longshot?!

Beautiful cover, David! Great composition and dynamics. I love this team, especially now that you have Polaris and Havok in it too. It reminds me of the old X-Men, when Silvestri was rocking on them.
Reply
:icondavidyardin:
davidyardin Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011  Professional
Thank you. Silvestri comparisons are always nice praise. I love drawing Havok in particular with all his power effects (I should have put some Kirby crackle in this piece).

druje Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
You know,m I always loved drawing him with his power effects too, as a teenager -that's when I got my first Silvestri X-Men, the Hungarian editions. I'm glad to see him and Polaris back on the team.
But the important is that you do a wonderful job in composing them on your covers.

Man I wish you drew all the X-factor interiors as well. You really capture these characters so well.
Marvel should release and art book with all your X-factor covers :D

Maybe one day I'll get to work on the book too haha :aww:

I don't think they'd ever do an X-Factor cover book; I don't think demand would equal necessary pre-orders. But I'd love it if they did. :D
