A Tribal Jean Grey

Hello hello hello!

So today, while I was browsing through my hard drive for old files, I saw a folder which had all my old drawings from my college sophomore years. I then saw Jean Grey - in an outfit I think she'd be horrified in wearing. I then had to think about which category I should place this in - Fashion or Drawings. Since our main goal was to give Jean a super new look, fashion would be the best choice.

Ready to see her? Hahaha. I don't think she'd be able to fight very well in this.

Ahahahaha! I was assigned the transformation by my own group mates that time (who probably thought I'd do better), and look where it led me! Her original version was a bit more proper, but she still looked like a foreign action hero, so I had to fashion her into a tribal warrior. Don't mind the tattoo on her left arm - that was something completely random that I just thought would look cool on her.

Of course, I looked at references for the time period I was assigning her to, but most of them didn't really fit the "fighting" aspect of Jean Grey. So, I made adjustments. A little snip off there, a little cut here and behold! A topless Jean. Ahaha.

We were supposed to present this in class and explain the look, but due to lack of time and our teacher's sudden gloomy mood cancelled ours. I think we were the only group to not present this. Good thing.

I'll continue to look for old drawings which haven't made it to this blog yet and I just HOPE that most of the ones I'll find are good enough! 'Til then!

  1. Nice! I've never thought tribal would suit Jean Grey this much :']
