Nightcrawler the Swashbuckler by kevinwada Nightcrawler the Swashbuckler by kevinwada
Commission.

The client wanted Nightcrawler decked out in gypsy or pirate gear, so I let him have some Errol Flynn realness - all in Nightcrawler's signature colors of course.

Oh my gosh! I love this! Not many people acknowledge Kurt's love of pirates... X3 It's cool to see some fanart pertaining to that.

I miss old school Kurt; he's one of the reasons I started reading X-Men back in the '80's. Vey well done!

Do you ever do process shots? I haven't checked your site for them, I guess I should've done that first haha, but I would LOVE to see how you work because I am just so knees deep in digital!

I'm always flabbergasted by your wonderful works! NIGHTCRAWLER ftw! :love:

I don't think I make this known as often as I should, but Nightcrawler is actually my second favorite X-Men character; with that being said, I absolutely ADORE how he is portrayed here (I'll be jealous of any woman he decides to wed lol).
Of course, the choice of clothing here is to die for; I love how the shoulders of his vest jut out to mirror his original costume! There's so much motion in this picture, which befits Kurt's character. And I love that his accoutrements are "asymmetrical" (I put that in quotes for lack of a better term); the chains cris-crossing his torso, his wristbands, and even the hilts of his swords are different from one another.

But the cherry on top is the way you've rendered his face! You had mentioned on your blog that the client had asked for a Cockrum-era Kurt, and the way the shadows play off his face (especially with the texture of the watercolor) really capture that era!

Thank you for sharing! :+fav:

What??? but... but... no bandana, no funny hat, no eyepatch, no wooden leg, no earrings, no parrot?

How we will know he is a pirate?

This is a great look for such a mis-used and squandered character.

This is great! Nightcrawler is my favorite character and I love seeing him in your style! Awesome job, I especially like the basket hilt and the technique with the bamf-y smoke stuff.

It reminds me of Kitty's Fairy Tale, when she put the team into her story for Peter's little sister. I like it:iconkermityayplz:
