Foreign exchange students by anklesnsocks Foreign exchange students by anklesnsocks
no other super hero team has felt like a better well-oiled-machine like the second generation of x-men. theyve always had this very close, tight family dynamic to me.
trying some daniel acuna painting tricks in here. i absolutely adore his style.

This captures the essence of second generation x-men. It makes them look like a living breathing organism formed of multiple beings.
I'm not sure that was the point of the entire composition but that's how I see it.

This is beautiful! I love this piece! Both composition and rendering, are outstanding! If you were to work using this style ( lines+colors0 it would look perfect to me.

I know Ororo is from Africa, Pietro is from Russia, Kurt is from Germany, and Logan is from Canada, but I didn't know that Rouge were foreign too...where is she from?

Amazing. Clean lines, bold colors, and one of my favorite teams!
I also am in LOVE with the fact that you kept them in their updated outfits than their classic ones. It sort of connects their past selves to their present selves.

Incredible composition, lineart, and coloring!

Does Rogue have a foreign origin? I always only knew of her being from the South in the States, but of course I'm sure there is a lot about her backstory that I don't know, since I haven't been reading the comics for the past 10 years or so.

second generation of x-men was super awesome. I actually started comic reading when Jim Lee took over, but I soon learned to appreciate the earlier stuff.

Very nice work! If I may suggest one thing though? The red is a little overpowering. If you could tone it down a bit, the characters would "pop" more.

I would say the same, maybe even a simple white background would really make them the center of attention, not that it doesnt look great, it looks fantastic

I know what you mean about the family dynamic. I alway thought Logan as the dad with a iron will, Ororo as the mom with the kind and loveble personality, Kurt as the milddle funny kid, Rogue as the little sisiter with a kind hart and Peter as the big and honourable brother.
