Excalibur by rocom Excalibur by rocom
The original roster has always been tops for me.

Thanks to Claremont, Davis, and Neary for inspiring me with this comic when i was a kid.  :D



These characters do not belong to me.

Lovely piece of art, and nice to know there are others out there that share my love of Captain Britain, and Excalibur. Hope you don't mind, I've shared your art on my Blog, [link]

I almost had a heart attack when I saw this!
Excalibur was one of my favourite comics when I first started reading comics...I picked up a big box of them for only 25 cents an issue in Saskatoon, and I chewed right through them. Love the original roster...Nightcrawler was always my favourite, but they're all awesome. :D
As for the actual art, amazing. The composition is fantastic...it would make a great cover for a collection of the comic. The colouring is very powerful, especially the balance between warm colours in the back with Rachel and cool colours in the front with Kitty.
Well done sir, well done!

wow awesome! i have a bunch of issues with this roster, but my favourite ones are the beginning with alan davis penciling up to the cross time caper. and i loved the covers of those early issues!

i think i would almost have a heart attack if this could be a cover for a comic collection! :) Kitty is my all time fave so she was definitely going in front and the rest just seemed to fall into place. and it just happened that the colouring naturally went from warm to cool.

thanks again for your comment. glad to see another fan of the original excalibur! :)

Oh yeah, those first issues were amazing! Loved the stories and the art especially. I actually miss Kitty's old costume...it was more unique compared to the other X-Men outfits.

No problem! Haha, yes, there aren't a whole lot of people who have read the original issues of Excalibur!

Wow, Ray... just... wow. I'm so sorry it took me so long to comment on this one, because I absolutely love it. The light, the coloring, the poses, everything about this one makes it officially my new fave piece of yours. Keep up the great work!! :D

Aaaaaabsolutely gorgeous. Colours, characters ( even though I'm one of the ignorant ones who's never heard of this comic ).

The glow on Shadowcat ( thanks LugiasPal ) is really, really good.

I don't know this comic, but I can still appreciate the art. :)
I quite admire your style of colouring and especially love the female character at the bottom and the glowing blue hues reflected on her.
