Bedazzled by the Dazzler by perpetualpanda Bedazzled by the Dazzler by perpetualpanda
Give it up for Dazzler, yo!

This was a piece I did for one of my best friends ever. We go WAY back ... and I'm talking KINDERGARTEN back! lol Also, I owe my comic book fascination to him, really. He got me into comics back in Junior High when we used to create our own mutants to fight alongside the X-Men, which introduced me to the incredible art of Jim Lee. And now, here I am! Wanna know something cool? I just had lunch with Jim yesterday. :D Crazy, right?! So thanks, Rich ... I am the comic book nerd I am today because of you! :P

Anyways, so I started this about 2 weeks ago. Originally it was just gonna be a pinup/closeup of Dazzler. On my first pass I didn't even draw her legs or anything. But of course ambition got the best of me and I went a bit overboard. :P As a joke/nod to my Glee/GLC piece, I was going to have her do the "L", spelling DAZZLER with her mutant Light powers. But since I put her on an actual stage, it seemed more "dazzling" (I'm sorry, but I just HAD to, HA!) to have her blasting the crazy light/energy FX she's known for.

The idea for the cellphone butt shot happened out of the blue last night. I was hitting the final stretch drawing the shadowed hands and thought it'd be funny to have someone with their phone up capturing a memorable moment to treasure forever. :)

PS. Yes, she has strawberry blonde hair. Please don't kill me.

UPDATE: I'll post up my process of this piece when I can compile them all. Link will be here soon.

Fabulous concept and execution - the addition of the stage puts her in context and adds so much more to the image. The idea of adding the cell-phone is pure genius! :clap:
