I was a big fan of the X-Men cartoon series back in the day. So it was with warm nostalgia that I decided to draw this pair in my current style. After my first unsuccessful attempt at drawing 90s Gambit and Rogue, I chose to start fresh. It ended up being more of a mid-century style of the characters, but I like it a lot. Especially Remy’s face. And hair. Who am I kidding? I love everything about how he turned out. (I am notoriously and vocally up front about my deficiency in drawing the male form.) The drawing process was broadcast live via Periscope.
The initial sketch was done in blue pencil. Then I went straight to inks with Staedtler pens. Then I scanned the drawing and colored it using Photoshop. You can view more photos of my progress at my Instagram (sharon82).
