Colossus VS the Sentinel – Pencils Sneak Peek

Hey Gang…

Hope everyone is having a great week, so far! You know, I promised I wouldn’t post Colossus until he was complete, but now that I have finished the pencils… I just can’t help myself! LOL! So here’s a sneak peek at the pencils.

I figured that the destroyed Sentinel would make a fun setting/backdrop for Pete. In any case, this will be a bitch to ink, but worth every brush stroke! HA! HA! HA! I’m having a great deal of fun with this piece, and I’m looking forward to seeing it completed!

So I hope you are all pleased with the way he’s turning out. Stay tooned for the finished version. It shouldn’t be too much longer now!

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO

    Excellent job with the metal skin.

    I have to wonder if his balls would make a chiming sound when you roll them around.

  2. Just like all your work it makes me feel so excited and hot. It’s amazingly beautiful and I’m so glad to be able to view it. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent.

  3. Unf.
    Oh what’s that? Something coherent?

  4. Something wrong with the hand on the right.

  5. Sweet Christmas!


    Now, do I pass out now, or wait till he can have his way with me?

    Really a wonderful piece of art you created there, nonetheless i have to criticise that somehow you didn’t manage to capture the physical presence of Colossus … in my opinion. He seems more like a metal version of Cam, very muscular, yet slender and even elegant. Though Peter certainly has an elegant charm and an artist’s soul, his body surely is nothing like that, being bulky, broad shouldered, massive. It was this contrast that always fascinated me on him.

    Knowing nothing about famous comic characters, we didn’t know what to expect with this one. Pretty wild! A lot there! Will be interesting to see this all colored up. Man, Patrick, you sure do have an imagination.

  11. AND THAT TOON LOOKS DELICIOUS…I could just cum all over it…and i have…BUT I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT IN COLOR

    BECAUSE AS A GAY GUY…Dorothy was cute in black & white, BUT SHE WAS A WHOLE LOT CUTTER IN OZ…the movie not the jail you nasties

  12. Thats An Excellent Pic. I Think He Shoulda Just Been A Little Bulkier, Buffer. But None The Less An Amazing Peice of Art!

  13. It looks glorious so far Patrick! I can’t wait for the finished product. :D

  14. Really amazing job… Patrick, come to Spain, visit us

  15. Vaughn Michael says

    Nice job I agree with the others though his body should be a bit bigger.

  16. Am I the only one that thinks there is a bit of rudeness going on here?

    Patrick gave us a gift of his vision of Colossus and we complain he isn’t “right”? This is HIS interpretation! If you wanted the textbook version… pick up a Marvel comic!!!

    Do a Google image search for Colossus and you will see a LOT of different body types and looks over the years.

    Personally I don’t think there is any question why someone like Daniel Cudmore was chosen for Colossus in the movies over a “Schwarzenegger” type.

    Check out this out and think again!

    Give me a break! Some of you should head back to manner school!

    It’s just people opinions.
    Patrick enjoys drawing anyway I’m sure or he wouldn’t do it.
    I myself wouldn’t draw if I listened to what people said all the time.
    People are used to something the way it’s been and they are just making suggestions.
    No need to get bent out of shape over it.

    Dear anonymous from two posts before,

    Since when is it rude or inappropriate to constructively criticise an artist’s work???
    Noone insulted Patrick, made a vicious comment about his skills or said his Colossus isn’t “right”. It were just opinions and expressions about the feelings the drawing released in some viewers. Isn’t that part of what art is about?
    I’m pretty sure Patrick is very well able to deal with some small criticism and that his artistic producing is not depending on constant feedback about how flawless all of his work is.

  19. The anticipation is killing me – in a good way – this rocks so hard

  20. Good Morning everyone…

    WHEW!!! I have a few postings I should answer comments before this, but I feel I should address the comments here first. Clearly my version of Colossus has sparked some debate. I just want to begin by saying that everyone is entitled to their opinions – EVERYONE – whether we like the opinions or not. I respect and appreciate every comment that is posted here, even if I don’t always agree with them myself. Mostly though, I view the comments as an extension of the post, and a way to share in your thoughts and feelings on what I have talked about. Certainly, it is always nice when everyone agrees with me and what I have done – LOL – but I realize that will not always happen. But most importantly, I believe in respect above all.

    Rufferstuff… I LOVED your comment about Colossus’ balls! HA! HA! HA! That’s hilarious – and you know what – I bet you’re right that they probably do make a little chiming sound when you roll them around. Thanks so much for commenting. And thanks for the compliments on the metal texture of his skin. :o)

    Hunter… Thanks so much for the kind words. I am so pleased you find my rendition of Colossus pleasing to the eye. I’ve certainly had a good time working on the image thus far. I can’t wait to show you guys the finished version. Thanks for stopping by.

    Meta Play… I , ah… THINK “Unf” is a good thing! LOL! At least it is according to the Urban Dictionary… so THANKS, my friend! LOL! Glad you like the image!

    Anonymous… Thanks for your input – really — though I admit your delivery needs work. T’was a little bit dry.

    Z-Maker… hey my friend. LOL! If I were you, I would pass out AFTER he’s had his way with you. That way you will be sure to at least remember the fun you had with him! LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Tim Kelleher… Thank you for your wonderful comment, Tim. I’m so pleased you’re enjoying this image so far. I am thrilled that I can offer you a glimpse at one of your fave heroes “au naturel”! LOL! I look forward to posting the completed and colored version of Colossus for you guys to enjoy further! All the best!

    Batsu… HA! HA! HA! Glad you approve, my friend. It seemed only fitting that if I were to draw Colossus, that he should have one of my “trademark” sized appendages! Somehow, it really suits the character. But my God – that poor Northstar! I just hope Peter doesn’t power up when the two of them are doing the nasty! LOL!! Take care!

    Damian and Trent… Good morning, boys! As always, a real pleasure to hear from you! I’m glad you are enjoying the Colossus piece and that this image is your introduction to the character. LOL! I am really looking forward to showing you the colored piece once it’s complete. I think that is when Colossus will REALLY come alive for ya! HA! HA! HA! Take care!

    Mountii… Hey dude! Great to hear from ya!! LOL! I ADORE your comments – and I bet you’re right that even when Colossus is “soft”, he’s still pretty damn “hard”! LOL! How handy is that?! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the image, and I can’t wait to finish the colored version for all of you to see. Won’t be too much longer now! Cheers!

    Rarutos… You’re such a sweetie, my friend. Thank you for the kind words! “glorious” is a LOVELY word to hear! LOL! I look forward to posting the completed version very soon. Talk to you soon!

    Raasbwoy… HA! HA! HA! Hang on just a little longer my friend! It won’t be too long now. I’ve completed most of the inks, and the colors will follow – and soon, you guys will get the fully completed piece! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your enthusiasm! Much appreciated!

    Abdin-Sebastien Holst, Primo, Vaughn Michael and Anonymous… Hey my friends — thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! They were much appreciated. And I mean that, truly.

    I am pleased that you enjoy my interpretation of Colossus, despite your feeling that it isn’t exactly as how you see the character – which is fine. Anonymous’ comments about “the various Colossus body types over the years” does reflect a part of my approach on this image. I’ve never really cared for the hulking versions of Colossus, and always liked the look and feel the character had when I was growing up reading X-Men comics. I think back to these amazing artists like Paul Smith and John Byrne, who drew him in that wonderfully tall, muscular yet slimmer than his counterpart of today way.

    So I guess you could say that “my idea” of Colossus is not as buff as the one Marvel depicts today. I did feel it important to make the character “mine” in a way, and to really depict him in my style. I believe that is what I did. I “Fillion-ized” him! HA! HA! HA!

    All that to say that people’s criticisms do not shatter my world – so no worries there. I’ve had to learn that lesson MANY years ago! And to learn that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, even if it’s not always an opinion I agree with. LOL! It’s never fun to hear that people aren’t completely satisfied with something, especially once you’ve put your heart and soul into it, but ultimately, you can’t let that stop you.

    I must admit, there is a part of me that stings a little at the thought that maybe I’ve let some of your expectations down in some respects with this drawing – I guess that’s just human of me – but in the end, the image is what it is, and what counts is that it’s been a lot of fun to create.

    I hope that despite the fact it isn’t quite as you envisioned he’d turn out, that you will all still enjoy seeing the completed piece.

    Much love to you all,
    Patrick XOXOX

    Here here, Patrick! As a fellow artist, I agree with you whole heartedly. Although here is an interesting thought. If Colossus is a grow-er and a show-er, and this was the show-er part after he powered up soft, how much bigger would he be once he got hard and then powered up? Might be fun to envision this as a before shot and another image as the “after shot”, pun intended. ;-) Either way , there is a bit of a size queen in each of us, Yay size queens!!

  22. I’m SO stoked to see the finished product, Patrick! :-D

  23. P.S. I must confess that I took one look at Patrick’s pencilwork here and just had to give him props, completely bypassing what others here had said. Regarding the critiques that have been lodged, I think they were done in a respectful way. As the old saying goes, “You can’t please all of the people all of the time,” but Patrick does have an uncanny knack for satisfying me with his work. Also, I continue to be amazed at how open he is with his major-league talent, freely sharing it here on his blog — whereas many other artists in his position would charge a fee for a mere peek at even their latest cocktail-napkin doodling.

    Having said all that, every artist, especially the excellent ones, have their own unique, definable style. As such, Patrick’s art will always reflect what he termed his very specific “Fillionization.” For example, when filmmaker Jim Cameron directed the superb “Aliens,” even if he had set out to direct it in exactly the same way as Ridley Scott had helmed the highly successful “Alien,” that would’ve been ultimately impossible. Cameron, like Fillion, is his own man with his own artistic sensibilities that must be expressed for his work to, well, work.

    That’s what Fillion did here with his take on Colossus — and I consider myself very lucky to have seen it. :-)

  24. Hey Matthew and Glenn…

    Thanks so much for stopping by, boys! I really appreciated your comments and kind words.

    Matthew, that is a scary notion! LOL! In a good way! LOL! Just the same, i think I will leave that one up to our imagination for now! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Glenn you truly are a sweetie. Thanks for all the lovely things you said about the Colossus image and my work in general! You are much appreciated!

    Much love to you both!
    Patrick XOXO
