Comic Book Art: Emma Frost (White Queen) by Aly Fell Comic Book Art | Comic Books 07 NOV 2011

Aly Fell (Alastair Fell to his mum) is a Manchester, England based illustrator and concept artist with well over 20 years of experience in both the animation and games industry, having previously worked as an animator at Cosgrove Hall Films. Currently a freelance illustrator and seemingly doing quite well for himself, Aly is best known for his female form art, more of which can be found on his blog here.

Today’s featured piece of comic art depicts a fantastically rendered Emma Frost, a.k.a The White Queen, a mutant from the X-Men franchise commanding powerful psychic abilities and who more often than not finds herself siding with the villains rather than the heroes, though with her you never quite know where she really stands!

Kaare Andrews: Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #4 Cover (2011) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 15 OCT 2011

Something is causing the children of an African village to be born mutated. Something in the woodland outside the village. Something they don’t talk about. But now, whatever it is, it’s being hunted, and the X-Men are trapped between the hunters and the hunted.

Of course, Warren Ellis’ story needs to be complemented by an artist, and although I’m not a particularly huge fan of Kaare Andrews’ internal pencils, the man does whip up some pretty awesome covers, and ignoring his hip-hop nods through the various covers for this short miniseries, his completed art for issue 4 is actually pretty attention grabbing.

Besides, it features Wolverine clutching a baby, claws extended, dark, billowing smoke, and of course Emma Frost for some or other reason draped around his calf.

Sheer awesomeness.
