Shadowcat Magik soulsword embrace by SatyQ Shadowcat Magik soulsword embrace by SatyQ
So this one's a little tricky.  At the time I was commissioned to draw this piece, Magik was dead, twice over.  De-aged to a 7 year old and then killed off by the Legacy Virus.  But Shadowcat had Magik's Soul Sword, so I used that as the conduit link to "revive" her for this bittersweet picture.  Years later Marvel did end up bringing back Magik.  But that's why she is fading away at the bottom of the piece- because she's not really there.

It looks like they're merging; like Magik convinced/seduced/tricked Shadowcat to let her posess/inhabit her body so she could live again.  And that's hot.

Yes, there's a lot of subtext going on in this piece, which does make it one of my personal favorites.  Illyana was very much out of the picture at the time this piece was done, with the only physical remnant left of her being the Soulsword, which was in Kitty's possession.

Another one of my favorites. I always saw it as a ghost kissing a ghost.
