Xmen Big Bang - Raven by Dailan Xmen Big Bang - Raven by Dailan
The first of the eight pics I did for the Xmen Big Bang.

I illustrated the fic "Zweiundachtzig" by ameonna1, and I absolutely adored it! The story was beautiful, the characterization perfect,...

I tried to capture the calm, "slice-of-life" feeling I got while reading the fic, don't know if I suceeded...

In this one we see Raven in her first apparition, I tried to give her a more "modern" look, since I absolutely hate her sliked-back hair in the movies.

"She’s in a gray turtleneck and a pencil skirt and Erik is trying to not stare but
she looks like a sapphire in the sun. Her red hair gleams as she leans against the
doorway"

your artwork for this story is just fantastic.
I loved how it was woven into the story, just providing perfect illustrations.

I think this is one of my favourite pieces you did.
I just love your style, the sketchy lines and the way her hair flows.
Exactly how I'd envision this Raven.


My other two favourites are absolutely the hug and the phone call between angsty Erik and post hook up Raven.
Their friendship is just so great and I think your art captures it perfectly. <3333
