Art for Sleightofhand!

Title: X-23
Gift for: sleightofhand
Artist: nightambre
Rating:: G
Fandom: Marvel Comics
Characters: X-23
Artist notes:First time drawing the character?
Summary: Ah, X-men, my first fandom obsession. I was really excited about this assignment, and decided to attempt a character that I'd really only had passing familiarity with. Had a lot of fun reading issues with her, trying to get a feel of her personality, and then put her to paper. I hope I did her justice. I tried to keep her age in mind (that of being a mid-late teenager) yet keep with the style of clothing that's been established for her. I'm addicted to short skirts/thigh highs on girls, and figured she'd sport the look nicely :) I hope I've done her justice for you! please overlook any odd anatomy glitches...*cough*

ASDFGSADG"ASDGa3f LOVE. You rock, Mystery Artist! MAN. I can tell that you read up on her because you've got that X-23 "look" down perfectly, all cold and passionless in the face of crazy kooky violence.

I'm glad this got you into reading more of her books! Just hope it wasn't the new X-Force, hah! That series is pretty questionable.

Thanks again Artist! Youuu arrree awwweeesommmmme.

Oh yeah, and I am also a big fan of the short skirt/long boots combo. TWO THUMBS UP.

I'm /so/ glad you liked it. I did the thing several times (and in the midst of my darn cat croaking T_T) trying to make sure it was right...or at least close enough for government work. I was still worried when I submitted it, as I said, first time /evar/ drawing the character >D So, very, very gla dyou liked it! <3 <3

Wow. Lovely, and I think you did a great job on the blood streaks, the forward motion, and the upthrust chin. Really nicely done!

FIERCE! That outfit combo is indeed super hot, and I love how you drew her pose and expression. The blood is also a really cool idea and it gives the picture that little extra something something ♥

This is so excellent--I love her face, all fierce, and the blood streaks, and I really love the shading on her skin--so luminous. She's all glowy, like the moon, right before she snuffs out our worthless lives. :DDD

Oh wow, that is better than some of the official pinups of her I've seen
That's just wonderful, and I love the red extending past the border like that.

Great job!

I really like her face- and her hands, which are hard to draw at the best of times, and couldn't have been made easier by the claws. Really cool.

Eeeeee so cool! I love how she is striding towards the viewer with such confidence and almost threatening - particularly with her claws and the swipes of blood - YIKES!! The swing of her hips and skirt, though the image is stationary, is nevertheless extremely mesmerizing. Everything about her screams badass!

So cool! The red streaks outside the border are a fantastic touch, and she looks so wonderfully badass. :D

OH MY STARS AND GARTERS.

It's been like ten years since I picked up a new X-Men comic, so I only know this character in passing -- but WOW. This is so gorgeous and bad-ass that I almost want to run out and buy some books with her in them! The expression on her face, the pose of her body, the arcs of red -- everything about this is magnificent!
