This was a piece i just did for fun, and then used it for prints at the summer conventions. Again, after working the super clean and open line style with New Warriors, I was dying to add some black into things. So, I kept this one pretty cartoony, but really just stuck the character in the middle of crazy blackness.
Nightcrawler seems to be a pretty popular character. I get asked to draw him a ton at cons, so I thought people might dig this new take on him. Like every piece I do, there are little things that I don't like when I'm done. Like the smoke, I wish I would have thought a little harder on that one. I just went with my first instinct, which isn't always bad. But I'm trying to teach myself to break the habbit of using my go to forms all the time. If I think of one way to do, I want to stop, and think of 4 other ways after that. I really just comes down to telling myself to slow the fuck down and think. Pushing myself, you know.
