"Days of Future Past" X-Men 141 movie version
After doing the loosely inspired Avengers 221 multi-panel cover I got the idea in the back of my head to do this one. X-Men #141 is one of the iconic covers from the modern age of comics and is one of the more "covered" designs by other artists. This one turned out to be a lot more work, taking an extra long time to do. I think I did a better job overall of getting the likenesses down than with the Avengers sketch cover. The exception being with Ellen Page as Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde. These tiny portraits are difficult where it comes to capturing the likeness of somebody that people are supposed to recognize. Not that I'm making excuses. She looks just slightly more exotic than Ellen Page is so if we want to say it's Wolverine's later sidekick Jubilee instead, I'm fine with that. Also, if anyone wants to guess who the characters are supposed to be in the 2 mostly hidden panels behind Wolverine, post it in the comments section. I will contact the winner privately for their mailing address so that I can ship them an extra special no-prize.
