    For a few weeks, we're going to try something a little different in the REMAKE/REMODEL space.

    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    No more than

    submission by any one person in any one thread.

    The challenge is simply this:

    In a single illustration, capture The X-Men in the style of FREAKANGELS.

    Our flooded, steam-powered, post-apocalypse London... with X-Men in it.

    You may want to consider that FREAKANGELS wouldn't be FREAKANGELS without the watery, "cel-shaded" colour design and palette that Paul created.

    Also, obviously, that the characters would require a complete redesign to fit into the FREAKANGELS world.

    And that's it.

    It's a long weekend, so I'm going to give everyone a head start. This'll run for 8 days, closing on the night of Sunday 11 April.

    As a non-artist who merely enjoys these threads...I'm fastening my seatbelt and hanging on for the ride.

    This is going to be *epic*.

    I can see this one in my head. I wish my hands knew how to translate it out of there into something people could see.

    Been sketching for a while and this is loads of fun but also tougher than It seems. How many X-Men are needed to be considered the X-Men? Two? Fifty?

    These guys breed like rabbits...
