gambit by NgBoy gambit by NgBoy
so this was done for an art challenge over at i really didn't have time to do something like this, but after participating in a somewhat heated thread over there, we were all called out to do this challenge. so yeah here it is.

i'd say that this is the first time i've ever drawn gambit, but then i'd be lying

i really copped out on the background. i was planning on those guns to be shooting, but one only has so much time >_<. perhaps i'll touch it up later with some gunfire and junk

you have really awsome lines, dude. wow.
mortalshinobi Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2006
whatever, it's really good even without the gunfire.

It's not often that I agree with an artists choice of featured deviation. But this one however, takes the cake. The dynamic angle, dramatic foreshortening, and warped perspective are great. I like the shadowy sillouhettes in the windows above and the way that everything from the vanishing point leads right through into the cards is excellant. To top it all off, your anatomy is spot on.

Excellant job.

Seriously. :o

I absolutely hate Gambit. That said, you have taken a turd character and created GOLD. Awesome job. Also, this picture gives off a slight Steve Skroce influence.

He's gotta be the coolest x-men arnd..haha..too bad he wun be in the movie (mm..or wld he) Anyway, Awesome work man! :clap:
Dualmask Featured By Owner May 2, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
This is some incredible work. I can't believe you can nitpick at yourself about not adding gunfire with all the detail you did add. The only thing I'm not really liking is Gambit's eyes, they seem...odd for some reason. I know they have that red glow and all but his eyes have a strange beady look about them here, like he's not actually in control of his faculties or something.

Great, now I'm nitpicking. Awesome stuff, man.
RudeBoys Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2006
gambit is definitly the best (awsome choice!).

hope things go well for you in the contest.

twincastX Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2006
wow i'm blown away by this pic of Gambit. the angles, perpective, and depth is excellent!!
AndyTurnbull Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Great image Joe. I really don't care for the character, never really did like him. But the pic is well done. To be honest I don't think the lack of gunfire in the background hurts the pic. With less going on in the background the eye is drawn more to the figure of Gambit.

yur new gambit definatly wins. . but then again yur old gambit still owns my shiz hahahaha

that old pic is joe mad-tastic. it's amazing how much your style has evolved.

hope bria sees this given her recent livejournal post. she'd probably really like seeing it.

and now to go to penciljack to have a look at this "heated thread"
NgBoy Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional General Artist
thanks will.. yeah i hinted it to bria in her journal.. *shrug* haha dude.. you should start posting at pj again.. seriously..
ACE3d2000 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006
Wow the proportions and detail on the muscles of Gambit is quite cool.. just a small crit that He's face looks a bit evil, other than that everything else is excellent
NgBoy Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional General Artist
hey thanks man.. yeah.. it's so difficult to make the eyes that he has not appear evil -_-
Steelpengu Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
I don't like his face for whatever reason, but to each his own. However, the picture as a whole owns six ways to Sunday. And that musculature... whoa shit, it's awesome. That's the Danger Room I take it?
NgBoy Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional General Artist
hehe yeah the face i was kinda on the fence on as well.

yeah, i wanted to give a "obsticale course" type feel to the danger room, like in the opening credits to the 80's x-men cartoon XD
Steelpengu Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Wait, wow, the 80's one? You mean you saw that thing? Holy crap! It was my first intro the X-men growing. Saw it on vhs (the good old days), with Kitty Pryde and Pyro and rather awesome Magneto as I recall.
NgBoy Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional General Artist
haha yeah man! i used to wake up at 9 am every saturday to catch that show XD with wolverine's australian accent haha.
Steelpengu Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Man... that was my first introduction to Wolvie and for years I thought he was australian. I also lived under the notion that the tan and brown outfit was his original. :no: My naive youth.
