CBR-DMaX-XVIII - Bonus002 'The Quiet Gift' by ZhaxRa CBR-DMaX-XVIII - Bonus002 'The Quiet Gift' by ZhaxRa
Read the tragic bio on :iconshiver-slice:'s character for the recent X-Men Art jam over on the CBR forums forums.comicbookresources.com/…!. And this idea sprang to mind.

Characters (all in the First Class Era):
 - Panel One: :iconblu-berri:'s villain THE BOMB from :iconblu-berri:'s Flora character bio. forums.comicbookresources.com/…
 - Panel Two: :iconshiver-slice:'s Maggie Hall, the tragic X-men.  shiver-slice.deviantart.com/ar…
 - Panel Five (BG; Front-to-Back)
     Cyclops by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
     Blackphoenix's Psycheforums.comicbookresources.com/…

I'm trying to get used to Manga Studio EX5 in the way it feels, it's like learning stick-shift after years of driving an automatic.  For example, I can't figure out the curve ruler yet.  It's very different than the one in EX4.  This is also an experiment into sequential illustration, which I feel I'm woefully inadequate at (After all, I've been slowly working on a single page for another art jam for over a year now).

  Good effort.  I'd just watch having panels blocking the content of other panels; the 4th panel for example is partially blocked by the 2nd, when if anything a bit of the content in the 4th panel could've been spilling into the 2nd (if going for a sort of stylized touch).

Thanks!  I see what you mean.  The panel (or image) always seems to work better in my head than what I put down on (digital) paper.

Geez, THE BOMB has quite a killcount on the X-Men, especially girls with pigtails. o_o

Too true.  Luckily there are more 'gifts' for THE BOMB to hand out there. ;)

Thanks, Taz!  Sequential storytelling is not my thing, so I'm happy the tragic feeling came across.  (Wow, that sounded wrong.)

Nice work!  Cyclops be all like... "It's gonna be my job to clean this up.  AGAIN.  GDI."
