Iceman by BrianReber Iceman by BrianReber
This is the cover to "X-Men: Manifest Destiny" #1.

This is my first time coloring Humberto Ramos on anything. Pretty fun piece to work on though. I tried a couple other versions where I went with warmer colors in the background to try and bring Iceman out more. The editors loved the blues in this one and I do to.

oh, brilliant! i love the angel and the pose...textures and the touch of transparencies are just amazing!

is this something to do with after the M day? b/c the title is Manifest Destiny and it's #1... i dunno. i thought of it kinda like manifesting mutant powers.... i could be very wrong ><

The tangent with the ice and suspension cable is a little weird, but that's down to Humberto. The colouring is great. I like the texture and translucency too.

I love the touch of seeing through the "ice" on his arm and leg. I don't think I've seen that done before.
