X-Men International by cspencey X-Men International by cspencey
Psylocke- I wanted Betsy to have a punk-ninja look.  She has a Japanese mother as opposed to being a body jumper.  She exclusively has telepathy and is proficient in martial arts.

Nightcrawler- Kurt Wagner representing the Germans.

Storm- This is the Storm I used on my Project Rooftop submission.  As team leader I felt she had to embody a regal strength.

Northstar- I wanted JP to look like  a-typical hero.  He ended up looking a tad Nightwing but I was really pleased at how he turned out.

Colossus- I love beards!

Yeah, French-Canadian.  He is the North American representative on this roster.

Ah. I saw the JP and assumed Japanese for some stupid reason. Your art very nice.

These are fantastic. And I was wondering what Nightwing is doing with the X-Men.

That's the whole point of a redesign, man... It's not supposed to be exactly the same. It's supposed to be the redesigner's own vision and preference for already established work.

I'm really impressed with this line-up and the designs here. Though most members are American, the X-Men have a really diverse (read: international) roster and I like that you've highlighted that here. In fact, you've included three of my all-time favourites (namely Psylocke, Storm and Colossus). The approach you've taken is interesting and I can't help but wonder if this would be a team that would deal with global threats and issues.

Psylocke looks great here. The "punk-ninja" look works. The hairstyle is practical and gives her a more approachable vibe. The top is really cool and I especially like the "X" detail that stretches across her torso. The belt buckle is super awesome too. I also have to give you props for the red scarf. Is it a nod to her Revolution costume? Either way, great job on Betts. I like Nightcrawler's design as well. The suit looks great and I especially like the fingerless, toeless approach to his gloves and boots. The scarf he has around his neck is quite interesting as well. At its very basic, I adore Storm's costume. It's super fierce and I especially love the cut-outs. The boots look great and the gloves make her look badass. The tattoos throw me off a bit. Perhaps it's because I see her as the ultimate glamour heroine. As for Northstar, I like the blues. Yeah, it looks a bit like Nightwing but the design works for him. It's streamlined and is great for a speedster. Of these five, however, I think Colossus takes the cake. The beard? Genius. It looks great on him. It's very masculine but there's something sensitive about it here. The navy and red is a great combination. It's a welcome break from the yellow and red that we're used to seeing with him. I also notice he's got a pocket on one side. That's kind of cool. I'm also a fan of the shoulder area. It's brilliantly designed.

Overall, great job. This line-up is badass and you've created some really unique looks. :)

Thank you for your analytical and descriptive response to my picture.  The Tatoos of Storm seem to have been somewhat controversial but I felt that it added an extra "bite" to her look that was otherwise missing in my design.  The beard on Colossus seems to have been my greatest life achievement judging by its positive response!  In all I tried to keep them looking uniform but having their own strong sense of individuality.  Thanks again!

No problem!

I imagine the tattoos have been controversial due to the reason I find them odd. I think most people view her as a glamorous character whose physical appearance is that of near-perfection. As such, I imagine tattoos throw people off due to their grungy appearance. Good on you for the beard though on Colossus. It's fantastic that you go the positive response you've had thus far. :)
