Random Doodlings

Some random stuff I've been playing with for a bit. Test pics and doodles for possible sets and the like. I really should make a habit of posting these things more often.

In any case, a geisha chick for if-and-when I ever get around to doing the asian-theme story I've been tossing around. Yeah, yeah, I know some of you aren't as keen on Sengoku stuff as you are on Sword&Sorcery, but I like it. So there. :-P

And also caught up on reading some X-Men after a few years. Gotta say I like some of it. Fell in love with Pixie as soon as I saw her. 'Course I've always been a huge fan of the Limbo themes in X-Men so hard not too love her. And yeah always been a fan of the soulless Russian blonde Illyana Rasputin aka Magik. (Though having faced many Russians in MMOs I don't think any of them actually have souls to begin with - just kidding... not really though ;-P ) So definitely gonna have to do a pic of her too, and probably a Pixie/Magik set as well.

And Jubilee finally got interesting! I utterly despised the character when she first came out. Just a bad ripoff of Kitty Pryde/Wolverine dynamic. And fireworks? That's her mutant power? Really? Much cooler as a vampire now. And of course gonna have to do something with her and X-23 at some point.

Will have to make a pic of Dani Moonstar too. Hard to go wrong with a cross of hottie Native American and Valkyrie. Which amusingly enough is related to how I got into X-Men in the first place - X-Men Annual & New Mutants Special Edition where they go to Asgard, Storm replaces Thor as God of Thunder, Dani becomes a Valkyrie, Magik gets all sorts of fucked-up, and more! Was a fun little story!

Have to agree about the Jubilee thing, fireworks was lame. I once read an article featuring the lamest characters in the x-men series and she was on the list. The vampire version is much better if I do say so myself. Looking forward to your stuff, especially the x-23 set you are talking about. Been a huge fan of her since I saw her in the show. Keep up the good work.

I really like your geisha girls pose, Mongo. I'll probably even reference it next time I draw K'rikka.

Something odd on Image Venue.
There are more pics Before your Three!
Are the Krikka Pics yours aswell and should they have been released?
They don't have your logo on them!

Nice work, by the way. Nice to see you posting.

Thanks for the previews.
It's always good to hear from you.

I'm really excited to see what you do with Illyana - she was definitely one of my favorite characters from back in the day. And you know she probably got freaky with that realm full of demons when the rest of the class wasn't around.
