17 Aug Throwback Thursday
I was rummaging through my childhood drawings and came across some of my early superhero drawings. I was a big fan of the X-Men TV-series back in the 90’s, and it has always been my favorite Marvel property. Of course I still enjoyed Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man, but X-Men always seemed more interesting to me with the way they tied in unconventional super powers, political drama, and interesting personalities (“Hey, bub!”).
Middle school became my superhero/videogame phase. Although I didn’t have much money to purchase comics or a console, I’d make up for it by drawing my own versions of X-Men and Megaman villains. They weren’t that great, mind you, but it eventually led me towards drawing humans. Anyways, I thought it would be a fun exercise to redraw one of my old characters. I don’t have a name for her, but she was supposed to be a Chun-Li/Psylocke type. I’ve also been going through a drawing funk and have been having trouble finishing some of my personal sketches. Maybe years from now, I’ll cringe at this new drawing and do another remix.
