JUBILEE con sketch by AdamWarren JUBILEE con sketch by AdamWarren
A recent-ish con sketch (summer 2006) of Jubilee from the X-Men (or whatever the hell sub-group she's in nowadays).

Not bad, but something about the piece bugs me... Her face didn't quite work out the way I would've liked.

I'm liking this! <3 I must ask, what kind of pencils do you use? Are you using mechanical, and they jut come out awesome, or...? 8D
AdamWarren Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Professional General Artist
I use the heavier-duty (though rather expensive) 2mm leadholders, as opposed to the flimsier .5mm mechanical pencils, which are waaaaay too fragile for the way I pencil.

I like the overall feel of the illo--a carefree spirit until she has to spring into action. I haven't kept up with the X-Men because of the multitude of spin-offs and cross-pollinating storylines. But one title, Wolverine, I followed for a while back when. I liked the Japan story arc guest-starring Jubilee and Gambit, and the eco-terrorist story arc guest-starring Jubilee and Terror, Inc. (who had a title of his own for about a dozen or so issues).

What a fantastic rendition of the character.
I don't care what people say about Jubilee and her "lame" powers.
I think she's effing ballz

Damn you and your ability to take characters I despise and make them adorable!
yetipie Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
I love her! She's my favorite mutant of all time! Good job, I like the style!
NA777 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007
Again another fave character of mine, I really like the way you've bought her free spirited loving bubbly attitude out in this piece, I personally think it's to do with the face so naturally the face In my opinion worked out great for the character that she is. The pose also brings out her Jubileeness.
TheJFan Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2007
I would love to see you tackle this character with a comic book style.

Mainstream, Jubilee is in her late teens/early twenties. They're bringing her in to a Civil War tie in soon, where she's not without her powers, so to speak.

I think one of the reasons you may not be satisfied with the face is that you attempted a comic book style, but were so heavily influenced by anime and manga in trying to establish Asian Features, that it came out an uneven mix of the two.

Jubilee is one of my most favorite comic book characters for a number of reasons, and I do like the efforts you made. Hope you keep at it!
AlexandreLancaster Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007
She does still existing nowadays? O_O

But I really like the rendition of the character here. it's just a sketch, but it's maybe the cutest rendition she have ever had someday (I used to like how Bachalo drawn her on early Generation X issues).

Never seen this one! How do you do the sketches like that?!??? Do you ever use guidelines or under drawings???????
NCWeber Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think it's the shape of her jaw and her eyes. Without you saying it was Jubilee, I only would have guessed because of the X on her shirt and the "safety goggle" style sunglasses.

Still, it's a bitchin' picture. :D
carraman Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2007
I love Jubilee :wow:
morganagod Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
you know, the art is rare in two aspects. One, you hardly ever see Jubilee artwork anymore. And it's kind of rare that when you do see it, she comes as a youthful cute asian.
SaphirexClaws Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2007
this is incredible! you're so great at detail! Jubilee is such a cutie ^^

It's too bad she lost her powers during that whole Scarlet Witch thing. She's a cool character.

i got to ask, how do you avoid smudging (my number one pic killer) ? and also, what paper do you use? it has some nice texture.
AdamWarren Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2007  Professional General Artist
I tape copy paper over the parts of the page I'm not yet working on, whenever possible; this is especially important on the right side of the page, as I start working from the left side and move over to the right (as I am right-handed). This means I go through reams upon reams of copy paper as smudge-avoiding "frisket", in effect, but what the hell...

Behold, as I give away my trade secret: The paper is linen-finish "cover" stock, available in the, uh, "fancy paper" section of most office-supply stores. (Go for the heavier, cardstock version of the stuff, not the lighter-weight paper.) It's used for high-end printing, as in resumes, cover letters and whatnot; it's not actually meant to be a drawing medium, but just happens to work pretty damn well regardless. Back in the early 90s, I stumbled across the paper's potential quite by accident, and have been working with it ever since. I've turned a number of other artists on to the medium, all of whom use it in quite a different manner than I do...
IZRA Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
aaahhh. a painfully simple solution. DO'H!

I'll check out that paper too. thank you very much for taking the time to answer, I apreciate it. :D
