Mystique fanart

By the way, for this year’s X-Men Big Bang – a collaborative fan project – I got to illustrate a story about Raven. I’m just going to leave the pictures here.

XMFC Cherik fanart collection

A small collection of all the Cherik art I did in the last few months. It’s… more than I thought.

Cherik: Walk in the Park

For this year’s Secret Mutant exchange (a holiday season gift exchange in the X-Men fandom) I drew another tiny comic.
I had a prompt for the plot, and I had too little time for this, but — here it is.

Erik likes to sit in the park bench pretending to read, but the truth is that he is watching that adorable dog walker and his corgis.

Ah, yes. Inktober, the annual challenge of drawing something with ink every day.
Last year I managed to finish one single drawing. This year I drew a couple more before I got sick and busy. Maybe I can do the entire challenge next year. :)

In the meantime, here’s some examples of this year’s drawings.

Another Palette Meme

Recently I took requests for another palette meme on tumblr; people could request characters and colours. This is what we ended up with.

Cherik Postcard

Step by step for a postcard I drew for someone a while ago.
I tried out Colorex inks again for this. The colours are beautiful, but much harder to control than the watercolours I’m used to.

MCC: Remis Becher-Verlosung

Mutant MugsUnter allen Käufern von meinem Fancomic Remis habe ich auf der Manga-Comic-Con ein Set Becher verlost.

Die glückliche Gewinnerin ist Franziska B., sie bekommt die beiden “Mutant mugs” jetzt per Post zugeschickt.

Wer jetzt traurig ist, dass er nicht gewonnen hat, kann sich die Becher in meinem Society6-Shop kaufen. Momentan zahlt man dort dank einer Promotion-Aktion auch kein Porto.


Remis: Preorder opened

Alright. I’m having Remis printed!

I was lucky and got a table in the artist alley at MCC (a con which is part of the Leipzig book fair) this March. I figured I might aswell sell Remis there. I only wanted to retouch a few things for print, but naturally ended up redrawing almost the entire thing.

If you cannot come to the con, you can order Remis online. Preorders start today, but since this is a fan book, they will only be open for a limited time, as I don’t plan to have a large number of books printed. (This isn’t for profit, but to share this with the fandom, after all.)

The comic has been redrawn almost entirely and also got a shiny new cover. Some examples here:

2014 Summary of art

The year is coming to a close much faster than expected, which was probably to be expected. So, have this year’s summary of art! You can find the meme template here.

When I filled this in I realized that I drew a lot more X-Men fanart this year than I’d imagined… Anyway. Here’s to a great 2015.

Cherik: Early Winter

For this year’s Secret Mutant exchange (a holiday season gift exchange in the X-Men fandom) I drew a little 5 page comic.
I had a prompt for the plot, and I had too little time for this, but — here it is.

Winter has come early, and the nights are freezing cold — but Erik’s apartment building’s slumlord owner, Sebastian Shaw, flatly refuses to turn on the heat until he feels like it. Maybe Erik can finally coax his roommate Charles into sharing his bed, or curling up together on the couch under many blankets. Purely for surviving the night, of course.

Read the comic here.


Halloween & Wardrobe Memes

I took some more requests over at tumblr. For the wardrobe meme, people get to request a character and an outfit; for the Halloween meme there were several prompts to choose from. I use these things as warming-up practise, so they’re usually not very serious.

Cherik Kissing Memes

A few memes from pixiv, because kisses are hard to draw and I needed some warm-up practice…

Colour palette meme

There is a meme going around tumblr at the moment that lets people choose a character they want you to draw, and a colour palette to work with.
I have been asked to draw lots of X-Men (which is no surprise, really).

X-Men Big Bang

I illustrated an XMFC fanfiction for this year’s big bang!

Theme and Variations: War by ninemoons42
Erik Lehnsherr is a musical prodigy and a man destined for great things and great stages. But his life is shattered by a terrible accident that leaves him blind and trying to find his way back to his life, his music, and his place in the world.
Then he meets Charles Xavier, an agent of Section 8 of the Military Intelligence Directorate of Providence, and he finds himself listening in to clandestine radio transmissions and clicking Morse code, and these sounds are part and parcel of a war that can only take place in the shadows and the hidden places of history.

You can read the story here.

Silly X-Men drawings & memes

Just some silly X-Men sketches, drawings and memes from my tumblr that have been piling up on my computer.

Sketches: Cherik OTP challenge

There is a list somewhere on the internet that prompts you with 30 situations to draw two characters in. Since I was planning to sketch more anyway, I worked through that list in February. Some of the prompts are a little weird, but that’s probably what makes the challenge worthwhile…

Here’s a selection. (More after the cut.)

Sketches: Charles/Erik

Recently I’ve been trying to sketch one page every day. Some examples:
