TRDL 2014 Series, No. 28 – Psylocke [Phoenix Five] TRDL Redesign

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Phoenix Five, an X-Men event from a few years ago called Avengers vs X-Men, where the Phoenix Force was headed to Earth to join with Hope, but after the Avengers intervened, it broke apart into five X-Men hosts which sort of Highlandered from there. The jam speculated: what if the Phoenix Force consumed other X-Men than the ones chosen (who were Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magick, Colossus and Namor)… so I chose Psylocke as my host. The idea was to use the design language from Coipel’s work on that book, and apply it to another character in a thoughtful fashion. One highlight for me: where the P5 costumes in the book tended towards a bit of an edge for some of the characters, in mine, I covered Psylocke UP more than she generally is.
