Sailor Moon - Tuxedo Mask (Mr. Wonderful)



"Hold me
I wanna feel your arms around me
Ooh la la, ooh la la
Kiss me
'Cause only you can make me happy
Ooh la la la"

I'm obsessed with this video!! A wonderful tribute to Sailor Moon's future husband, Tuxedo Mask!

I've watched it a dozen times already!

The music is SO damn catchy and the timing is spot on!

So romantic too!

Anyone care to slow dance with me?

"Optic Blast" Original X-Men Art (Cyclops W.I.P. - Step 4 - Completion!)


It's finished!

Hoooraaaayyy!

Or maybe I should say, "ZZZZZAAAAPPP!!!"

Watercolors and ink on bristol board - 8" x 10" (SOLD)

So some noticeable changes took place in this last step.

I went over the entire painting with a light pink wash to create a "glowing effect" from the optic blast. That was the main draw (no pun intended) for this piece. I wanted to do a painting that conveyed a subtle light.

I'm forever a perfectionist. I don't know if this is my strongest comic book work but I certainly love the colors in this one. Normally I'm NOT a fan a pink tones but they work so well here!

Close-up detail

The entire figure was meticulously inked and I splattered black on the background for added depth and that dramatic finishing touch!

Now Cyclops is officially ready for action!

ZZZZZZAAAAAPPPP!!!
