Jean Grey as Phoenix - Commission by ArcosArt Jean Grey as Phoenix - Commission by ArcosArt
Digitally Painted in Photoshop with Wacom Graphics Pen

Someone commissioned a Jean Grey in the earliest stage of her Phoenix-phase. Which was kind of cool because I'd planned to paint her for a while but I never quite got round to it.

I always felt the simple elegance of her outfit made it one of the better Marvel designs. (Especially from the 70's hehe.:D )

And of course the start of that whole Phoenix thing. I lost track a bit of how it went. At first it was her, then later it hadn't been her, then yet later she got the memories of the Phoenix that thought it was her for a time...and then...pfff... Bit of a mess that came out of a classic story.

This is lovely.  Would it be possible to have prints made of this?  I would definitely purchase one.

Thank you! As for the camel toe, I'm just trying to be realistic really, (without you know, overdoing it.):)

Thanks for the kind words!
And yes, that's Jean, but she is younger here, of course.

Rachel and Hope are not the same person, though.
Rachel is Jean's daughter from an alternate future timeline,
and Hope's not related to either of them.
(But Marvel had to make her another redhead of course...);)

You've captured her brilliance, power, and glorious beautifully rather perfectly here, like the birth of a goddess. Her deeply passionate pose is nothing short of stunning and provocative. Excellent work! =D
