X-Men: First Class - Like Fire and Ice by AuroraWienhold X-Men: First Class - Like Fire and Ice by AuroraWienhold
Very experimental this time. But that is a direction in which I want to go at the moment, just a try to 'break the frame'.
(Yes, I've fallen in love with the movie. ♥)

ink and watercolors


Professor Charles Xavier: "We have it in us to be the better men."
Erik Lehnsherr: "We already are."

//
Erik Lehnsherr: "What an adorable lab rat you make, Charles."
Professor Charles Xavier: "Don't spoil this for me, Erik."
Erik Lehnsherr: "I've been a lab rat. I know when I see one. "

hey! I love the style here, I have been trying watercolor some myself, and did try once painting then putting ink on top after it dried, (pigma micron pens) but the lines weren't as crisp as yours and sometimes wouldn't produce ink when on top of the water (their brand-new). Do you do it he traditional way of dipping the nib into the ink, or do you use a pen? just curious, cause I really like the effect of the pen on watercolor, just don't know how to do it that way I want to.

I love this, but I feel like it might have worked better to switch the colors and have Xavier in red, he being the warmer character, and Erik in blue, since his personality is much colder.

Xavier turned out really wonderful in this.

The characters should remain separately, so I didn't blend the colors too much into each other. I liked to keep the thoughtful and calm character of Charles and the most ambitious and quick-tempered type of Erik. :nod:

I loved this movie and I was so excited when I saw this lovely painting. This is a wonderful representation of Erik and Charles. You've captured the intensity that they share - while also making it clear that Erik's is a much different kind of intensity than Charles'.
