TRDL 2013 Series, No. 42 – Dark Phoenix [Here Comes Tomorrow]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Fall From Grace, or characters that have turned evil or lost their way in the course of their story. I chose to do Jean Grey as Dark Phoenix, but specifically as the version seen in Morrison’s final New X-Men arc, where she appeared in this black spiky, flamey pant and phoenix brazier ensemble, with a phoenix fire flying behind her like a tail. It was random and awkward but at the same time striking, so I gave it a go.
