It was fun to do another version of Jean Grey and revisit the concept of the Phoenix. This time I went with a bit longer hair and the green costume. The shadow of the Phoenix floating in the smoke was Jomil’s idea, the collector that commissioned the piece, and I’ve got to admit it was a damn good one.
