Finally finished!This is inspired by Wonder Woman circa Sensation Comics #6 (1942), when she got the magic lasso and had already ditched the skirt for the shorts.

FINALLY starting on the colors.

Was killing some time at work in the sketchbook, and this came out. The first sketch is a roster for the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters if Xavier had managed to convince Magneto that Xavier’s way was better for the mutants. In my mind, those are the teachers and students who’d make up the first class at Xavier’s.

The second spun almost inevitably from the first, when I noticed that Jean, Wanda and a very young Lorna were the only girls of the Student Body. 

I’ll probably expand on this further.

Done with Tombo markers and coloured pencils.

So for a brief period in the 80s, Carol was pretty much an honorary X-Man. What I thought was neat about that time was the fact that (unless I’m wrong and please correct me if I’m wrong) Carol was the first woman on the team other than Ororo since Jean’s death in the Dark Phoenix arc (actually Kitty joins the team before Carol but she’s 13 and Ororo pretty much adopts her.) So I kind of always think that she and Storm fostered a great friendship in that time (especially during the Brood Saga!!) and now I’m sort of wishing that Marvel would bring these two together in a miniseries or to guest in each other’s solos or something to be flawless and save the world/universe together because wouldn’t that be super awesome? It would be super awesome.  

greg-pak and kellysue, maybe you could work something out? Pretty please? ;)

"You can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your ipod/itunes media and write down the first 10 songs that play. No skipping. Then pass it on to 10 people."

After a few days without opening the file, I finished with the inks, and now am adding the screentones. Hope to get it colored by Monday.

Had some work to do today at home, so I could only work a little bit on the WW sketchbook. But here’s where we’re at right now!
