Vocal: Banshee's Wail

Another of my drawings from "The Vault".  This was a drawing I did ages ago (2008) as a parody of Edvard Munch's "The Scream" using X-Men characters (Banshee in particular).  I thought it fit well with this week's Illustration Friday topic, which is "Vocal".  I have been meaning to upload this on my blog for quite a while, and this week's challenge gave me an excuse.  I don't know why, but I've always proud of this illustration.  Maybe because it's really colorful.

  1. It's not just colorful, the colors are really well done. (Well, I might say tone down that stark black on the sleeves). But really all the great pattern and color in the background looks really great. I like the mysterious horned figures, too.

    1. Yeah. I think you're definitely right about those sleeves. They contrast way too much with the rest of the illustration.

      The horned figures in the background are meant to be Wolverine and Nightcrawler.

    1. Thank you! It feels like a bit of a cop-out using something I had already drawn, but this one just seemed to fit the theme so well.
