Nightcrawler by spidermanfan2099 Nightcrawler by spidermanfan2099
Nightcrawler.

Lineart by the fantastic Felipe Watanabe ([link])... heres the original too ([link])

Oh, and if you dont go and haunt his immense gallery I will hunt you down, his work is very underrated from what I can see... I want to see at least 2000 pageviews in the next hour for him haha. Cheers guys :D

Colour by Moi, 2099. (colours may be different to actual Ultimate costume, couldn't find any decent refs!!)

Saw it, HAD to colour it! I was looking for something a little more similar to Lienil Yu's work and this just jumped out at me. It was an experiment of sorts, trying a more cuts based approach to the colours... its a damn sight quicker! I finished this up in just over 2 hrs including the damned flats (I hate flatting).

Added some touches over the lineart to bring it out, sitting back it looks just like all my other stuff, even though my approach was completely different... might do some more stuff like this soon, it was a nice change.

Hope you all like,

Rad

This isn't the Ultimate version, bud. It's from when Grant Morrison was writing New X-Men and had Cyclops, Wolverine, Jean and co in black leather. Nightcrawler was on the Uncanny team written by Joe Casey, with Archangel, Iceman and Chamber.

Cracking colours, by the way.

Aaah, I think the Artist dropped that in when I was chatting with him so it just stuck! Secretly, I hate X-Men haha, I have my fave characters, but I cant seem to get alon with the main books as such anymore ;)I cant find a decent ref of this costume... link me if you have one to hand :D Are the colours right?

Cheers for the heads up though dude :)

Phew... I'd pull it straight down if the colours went astray too much. Glad only the title was off, cheers for that link dude :D

Hell no. If they were different that'd still be ace. They changed it not long after anyway. The X changed to yellow and the grey paneling changed to red [link] [link]

Why cant they just leave him alone, he had such a classic costume from the start! You dont see Superman and Batman getting such drastic changes (in mainstream continuity!)

Capitalist swines ;)

I duuno... I'm a guy who actually haero costumes. Specially the X-Men ones. I loved the black leather redesigns. They fitted the concept of what the X-Men are all about more aptly, I felt.

Booo... haha, no I accept your opinion on that, it was welcome redesign for alot of people. Me, I like bright colours and the idea of guys romping around in spandex (I think I understand why my lady has doubts about my sexuality in some cases!!)

Times change, and costumes change with em I guess ;)
