After sitting in a concertina file for nearly 15 years, the last of my old Fan Art is being exposed to the internet. It was possibly the last thing I drew. This is my favourite of all my drawings, even if it is very mangafied & she's developed a strange lump where her bottom should be. I'm just happy with the combination of pose & wardrobe.
Yep! Yet again, it's another Boom-Boom drawing! She's been my favourite character for a long time, and here's the proof ;)
The original pose is taken from another issue of X-Force. This time, X-Force #62 which was drawn by Kevin Lau. At that time, I'd never really seen a manga style in an American comic, and I liked the soft rounded style; in the eyes and general curves all-round!
The pose itself isn't taken from any defining moment. She's just mouthing off to the villains of the issue, but I liked the pose.
The outfit is one of my favourite classic New Mutants outfits. After the Acts of Vengeance issues of the New Mutants, Boom-Boom went through a phase of changing her 'uniform' every few issues. And why not?! It's more realistic for a girl of her age!
What I didn't realise at the time was that this outfit was designed by Rob Liefeld & debuted in New Mutants #90. It was sadly short-lived in favour of something slightly more practical (but not as cute). However, because this was the outfit she wore during the zany New Mutants Summer Special drawn by Bret Blevins it stuck in my mind. It's really cute & so that's the outfit I wanted to put her in, instead!
