dark phoenix by rocom dark phoenix by rocom
a friend challenged me to do a dark phoenix piece "where she wasn't sassy, confident and in control. show me a jean that's terrified, and about to lose herself."

so here is my piece, as i envision her merely a second away from coming undone.

dark phoenix belongs to Marvel

Amazing piece. Love the raw energy of it. I think you've really captured the out-of-control feeling for sure. The use of the solid primary red is so striking, almost looking more like blood than fire.

thanks! i am glad you picked up on the "bloody fire". from the start, i didn't want it to look like normal flames.

"I SAID ORGANIC SOY MILK!! NOT NON DAIRY CREAMER!!!" and
"YEEEE-OUCH!!!" (to stepping on a thumb tack)

I imagine Jean would have a hair trigger when she has The Phoenix.

This makes me think of a movie quote from In the Mouth of Madness. Nothing special or profound, just "Help me. I'm losing me, I'm losing MEEE!"
Heh, come to think of it and considering her expression and what is about to happen, that movie title is quite apt too.
I love this picture. I love the desperation and madness <3

yes, those words fit the image like a glove, along with desperation and madness.

This is awesome ray, love the expression. Though I gotta say, I have pretty much the exact same expression and pose except in the air on a piece I'm working on... ALSO an X-Men character... O_o crazy coincidence!

But yeah you just keep getting better and better. Love the simple but harsh colors. Please tell me you're going to get back into selling at cons or something! FanExpo? :D

Wow. This piece is awesome. Your Jean is so real and different from the other Jeans, that people usually draw. I can even say, this art scared me a little.
And yeah, it's beautiful too.
