I'm back from Easter refreshed and ready to go...
I promised a good one so here goes:
Dene Mason's amazing
DEATHBIRD: Words cannot express the beauty of this sculpt...
I was initially worried about the wings being awkward and getting in the way, but Dene's deft touch has dispelled my fears. One of my favourites of the extension thus far!
This is the original paint job (above). As much as it rocks I thought it would be better in the same colour scheme as Magik, so the updated version is below... (bad photography and all.)
The original black look we went for was rejected by marvel (above), so a more sympathic version to the comics was tried (below).
We have since darkened the blue version a wee bit more, but I'm happy with the change.
Dan Rachael (Art Editor, previous credits BBC Children's Magazines and Marvel UK) has recently inherited the blog from Richard Jackson who has moved on to bigger and better things (not in our opinion!). Dan has been tasked with navigating the starship Excelsior (CMFC)! to boldly go where no man or beast has gone before (well, at least up to issue 200). Beam me up Kirby!
