Dazzler 001 by ToddNauck Dazzler 001 by ToddNauck
Getting back to the drawing board after the holidays.
Decided to try drawing one of my favorite X-Men for the 1980's team: Dazzler.

I got to draw her in the 2008 Marvel Digital Holiday Special:

But there is something about this costume I like. Guess it makes me nostalgic for when I started collecting X-Men in high school.

Awesome stuff man. I grew up on the Silvestri/Claremont X-Men, so this is a nice flashback!

Great piece Todd! I love Dazzler... I actually have a bunch of her solo comics from the 80's. I think she's cool and dig her style for some reason. It must be an age thing.

I love it. I was big into the 80's X-men and this Dazzler was always my favorite. :D Of course, I was a big Longshot fan as well.

Excellent work Todd, I give it two thumbs way, way up! Heh, this makes me yearn for the good old days of Marvel. (Sigh) Back be for the bubble burst and supervillians weren't running S.H.I.E.L.D.

Overall, it looks nice, but her left foot doesn't even look like a foot. I've looked at some of your other drawings, and noticed that you aren't all that great at drawing realistic feet, and man oh man does that manifest here.

I thought it was really cool that "See You in Saint Louis" was her favorite Christmas Movie and that she got to sing for all the people in the digital comic. I've always wondered what her voice would sound like.

May I color and repost this with credit and link back to you, Todd?

I think one of the unique things about that old costume was that it was one of the few that was asymmetrical in design.

Added a real different feel to it.

Cool drawing too!!!

Dazzler! I thought I'd never see her again. She was very awesome, considering she didn't have much of an offensive power.

Will you be doing a picture of Longshot as well?

I'd like to see some new stuff of Deadpool. He was fairly cool, excluding some of the, in my opinion, rather annoying comments during combat.

I started collecting as that series ended, so this Dazzler is the one that really spoke to me.

But I do appreciate the disco costume.

I feel the same way about Psylocke (the version prior to the whole Kwannon/Revanche bit they put Betsy through).

Classic work Todd! Thanks for sharing!
