X-Girls by GavinMichelli X-Girls by GavinMichelli
My favorite run on Wolverine was the stretch written by Larry Hama where Wolvie and Jubilee were paired up. They had this father/daughter thing, which was nice, and their personalities clashed in a way that was funny. So I thought "wouldn't it be cool if Jubes and X-23 paired up?" One is Wolvie's clone, and was sort of like his adopted daughter for a little while, so they have that common ground. Plus, their characters would compliment each other in the same way as the original Jubes/Wolvie pair.

Although I've always enjoyed Jubilee as a character...let's face it, her costume blows. Big time. So I gave her kind of a punky street vibe, with the emo swoop hair and the gauged earings and such. I kept the colors bright, though, because I'm not trying to imply that her character has changed. She's still as spunky and upbeat as ever. I just thought that those changes would highlight her mischievous side.

As for Laura, I gave her the exact outfit that Wolverine wore in Wolverine #75 (the one that he got his adamantium removed...remember that?) That was the issue where the Wolvie/Jubes pair split up, so it seemed appropriate. Plus, chicks in wife beaters are sexy.

Wow, I don't think I've ever written this much for a description! ;P

I love how Laura looks here! I imagine Logan going all like ''That's my cloned daughter!'' :lmao:

And woah, you actually made Jubilee look...cool? Kudos to you for managing that! :XD:

Fantastic work!

Hahaha, thanks very much! I've always loved Jubes as a character, but that get-up is just...blegh. With the yellow trench coat and the blue shrimpin' boots. Gross.

Laura and Jubilee did team up, sort of in the Margrie Liu X-23 series. They actually bonded pretty well

I'll bet that was cool! I've only read the first mini, The Target, and a couple of X-Force arcs. I love the character, but sadly I don't have as much comic book time these days as I'd like.

Lamesauce. I don't really follow the X-titles anymore, except for the occasional issue of X-force (but I still haven't checked out the new team yet). I bought all of the Old Man Logan arc in Wolverine, but that was like two years ago. I just thought that the whole de-powering thing was bullshit, and vampires DO NOT fit with the X-men. They're fine for Blade or Dr. Strange, but when Dracula attacks the X-men, it's just cheesy.

it was a whole story with them attacking the X-men. Right now they are wrapping up a surprisingly good mini series called Wolverine and Jubilee

I totally agree about the Hama run! Those were definitely my favourite Wolverine stories (even with Albert and Elsie Dee). Nice take on Jubilee's costume; I am digging the punk vibe with the chunky belt and stars. Great work!

and if laura is Wolvie's clone wouldn't she have the exact same number of claws that he has?
Reply
:icongavinmichelli:
GavinMichelli Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
She has one that comes out of her foot. Daken's the same way - he's got three claws, but one comes out of his palm. X-23's not made of just Wolvie's DNA, though. The geneticist that made her put added her own DNA, which is why Laura is female instead of male.

Hey, I hear you, man. I can't remember the last time I got to the comic book store. I have picked up some of the newer issues of X-Force, though, because I like the art and the all black costumes. From what I picked up from Wikepedia, the X titles are hopelessly convoluted these days. I don't know what the hell is going on.

I miss the days of X Men before all the crazy cross-overs
i got as high as X Men 75 where wolvie gets all his adamantium
pulled out of his skin by Magneto and is left with his
original bone claws.

:icongavinmichelli:
GavinMichelli Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I followed a little after that, and I picked X-men up again when Joe Mad was drawing it, but I was long gone by the time he got his adamantium back. Ever since Civil War, the entire Marvel U is one big, convoluted mess.

why two Adamantium claws on Laura and not 3?;
as Wolvie's classic trademark is 3 Adamantium Claws.

I was wondering if you were interested in making a photo/drawing/painting or just any form of art for my first music video? I was looking for anything that related to the word 'Goodbye', I would be blessed if you would post something to my page facebook.com/MelieseReid

If your not interested its cool, and keep it up. Your stuff is great!
