Starving Artist (Vol. I)

I recently came across my old sketchbook and decided to share some of my artwork with the world. I drew most of these images years ago and some are not completed. I'm a huge X-Men fanatic, and my favorite character is Storm. I sketch the images freehand with pencil (you can see this with Rogue and Bishop; the originals are clipped to the book for scale reference) and then use black ink pens to darken the lines. Afterwards, I use colored pencil and shading to make the images really pop out at you (borrowed that trick from a student in my high school art class). All images were drawn on standard 8.5" x 11" paper. Hope you enjoy!
