From The Vault - Marvel Generation X 1995

Here is another piece I painted while working for Marvel Comics in the mid nineties.

It's a Chris Bachalo piece out of Comics Scene Magazine promoting the newest X-Men book, Generation X.

The piece looks a bit blurry because, I think, the black plate shifted while they took the shot of it for the film. Ah well, there were only so many things I could do on those old blue line paintings to make them work.

One of the most frustrating things was that, while painting the blue line piece on the illustration board, once I put the black line work on the acetate back on the art, it sometimes didn't line up quite right anymore. Maybe the acetate shrank a little bit. I don't know. But I always did my best to put it back on right.

It looks like, on this piece, it didn't go quite right.

But, I love Chris Bachalo's work and I was happy to paint over any of his work while he was at Marvel.

Nice coloring, Sean ! I like the way you have separated the different spaces. They're clearly identified, and you add a little plus to the relief of Mr Bachalo's work :)
