Artwork Description

The Gift" was modelled by epilogue artist Erika Schulz.

This is an image that stems from my memories of the X-Men comics that I adored and still do! Jean Grey/Marvel girl who later became Phoenix was my fave x-man character!

I really like the way you've been working your face and skin colours in these latest pieces. The extra work is paying off. You also have quite a talent as a portraitist.

Oh dear, I had to read Rita's comment to realize that I was wrong indeed: this was definitely not your second portrait of Erika ! It's getting into a habit it seems !! Smile Let us hope she does not turn into the Dark Phoenix version of Jean Grey !

hi James hope you are ok,
another 'stunna' the face is so luminous
and real looking,
i love the quality and the texture of the objects in the foreground giving the picture a nice depth
great idea as well a technical and artistic achievement. the eyes are gorgeous but i think it helps having a beautiful subject.
realy realy great. well done indeed
take care buddy.

Thank you Chris! I think this all flows from my memories of the X-Men comics and the early Jean Grey /Marvel girl idea!

Thanks Ken, the girl is brilliant, kinda cinematic and superb inspiration!
