Jim Lee Homage X-Men #1 Commission by mikebowden Jim Lee Homage X-Men #1 Commission by mikebowden
I was commissioned a recreate this classic 90's x-men cover by Jim Lee. This cover is one of the images that really got me drawing. It was pure joy to recreate this and also quite a challenge. I had to shorten the image length wise so it worked better as a stand alone commission. The character I changed the most was Psylock as thep ose and high rise bikini looked dated and just wasn't me. Everything else was perfect so I stuck pretty close to it. Hope you guys enjoy it!

ya know...at a glance, I dismissed this as a joe mad type ripoff(as far as style), but I looked at it more, and more... and more..  and I began to LOVE it.   and NOW, im kinda thinking its BETTER than the Jim Lee one..       this is GREAT.  and id pick up a book drawn by you any day.

amazing..  watching..

same! all those great pin-up shots. jim found so many ways to really show off the characters in that issue. it was a shame Claremonts dialogue was so wordy and covered up the beautiful art! LOL
