Other than the fact that Storm's and Colossus' chests should probably be black for better color balance, this is a masterpiece. Congrats on an amazing work!

What an awesome idea, my favourite team of X-men. Thunderbird looks part particularly awesome. Could you do more artwork of this team wearing these suits???? in original positions??? so good 10/10 and a brilliant idea.

NICE! :D I would love to give that a read!

I always had a similar desire to see the Dave Cockrum era X-Men in the classic suits too. Take a look at a cover I did dealing with a few of them: [link]

Cheers!

Any chance of actually seeing this as the cover of something?

Beats the current trend of comic covers that look like they've been burned and dodged into oblivion.

great twist on a classic cover. Love to see this as a "what if..?" or something.

:iconfranchesco:
Franchesco Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011
Thank you, IRON MAN!
and totally. Nothing against "what if..?"
Big fan here of that series, for very biased reasons.

No matter how well written or well drawn those issues were drawn
at the end of the day... it never felt "real" far as continuity...
Too pretend, for lack of a better word.

I really like the way you're thinking though.
Maybe a nice ANNUAL? ...something this cool,
would really need to be "real"

thanks again for the kind words on the drawing. :D

Thank you very much, BARISYLMAZ! Heh heh... how bout it... was gonna color it all up, but looks way cooler "unfinished" Not sure if its because I love pencil art from other artists so much, or if its just because it adds to the illusion... but heck... guessing less is more sometimes. :D

Thank you very much, KEN.

Gil Kane and Dave Cockrum did such an amazing job on that cover. I wonder if they could have even imagined they were part of a project that would go on to capture lightning in a bottle. And that one image going down in history as one of the most iconic comic book covers ever. Whatta trip. More than likely, they were each in their own little world, doing the do, none the wiser. Getting the morning coffee, cracking open a batch of pages and going to town on characters whose book had been already cancelled... Just another day at the office so to speak.

Thanks again, glad you digs buddy! :D
