Rogue by AdamWithers Rogue by AdamWithers
A commission of a fun character. I always liked Rogue a lot, and a part of it was how sassy and bombastic she was. I'm not a fan of having every girl in every comic stacked 'till Tuesday, as it gets really boring if every female you see looks like a different Barbie-Doll. But Rogue... I always pictured Rogue as being like those pin-up models from the 40's you'd see airbrushed on WWII bombers or hanging in airmen's lockers. She's just so Marilyn, to me-- curvy, wild, and full of fire and spunk.

I look at the X-Men comics, these days, and I miss the OLD Rogue. The FUN Rogue. Gambit wasn't good enough for her. :no:

You're absolutely right! Rogue looked a lot better back then. But I don't think that Gambit was bad for her, I mean, the guy was willing to give his life for her! And I don't mean he'd jump in front of a blast or any thing, but she could have killed him if she took his powers, or obsorbed some of his power. i still love it!

Fooey, says I. Any man who sees a woman who looks like Rogue does would say "I would risk death to touch THAT." It's not risking his life for HER, it's risking his life for HIS PENIS. Nothing chivalrous at all, in fact it's almost the ultimate act of chauvinism. Ask men how they would most like to die and I'd bet over 90% would say "during sex." :XD:

So no, I still don't think he's a good person. I think he's a selfish ass. He's the guy who promises to add spice and danger to your life, who seems like he'll make everything around him more interesting and exciting. The problem is, he does it by being a messed up human being. Trouble follows him everywhere because he starts it, and sweet girls everywhere fall for his charm because they think THEY will be the ones to unlock his secret heart of gold. Trying to do so usually ends in tragedy. :no:

The FUN Rogue , eh ? Do you mean, like this [link] ?

As for Gambit , well this is how I see it [link] & why it made sense before Marvel effed everything up ... Then again , I am the most opinionated guy you might find in DA

Alone, the devination is great. I like how I can actually tell it's rogue, but still your style.

The reason you got an almost instant fav is because I agree with your logic completely. The more I remember and look back and watch the old series, the more I miss Rogue as she was. She was basically the powerhouse of the team, not whiny or backstabby. Oh, and she had amazing strategic capabilities because of her own power. Sadly it means that she can't exist in the same Universe as a living Miss Marvel though.

OH, she could have. But they jinked her to match the movies and the newer cartoons where all she had was the absorption powers, and after said jinking, they discovered they had no clue what to do with her anymore. She was running around with Sunfire's powers for a while. Lame.

Ah, well - we'll always have our memories.

I love this art!!! Your Rogue piece looks so amazing! The pose and her expression look great! I'm mostly familiar with the character from the movies and the 1990s X Men animated series. I enjoy the animated series interpretation of the character- she was so spunky and she could knock out any bad guy!
