Why this piece is awesome: So this is more than a little cheesecake-y? In case that's not your thing. But Emma is by definition kinda cheesecake-y, and I love how this piece is so casual about the skin while carrying Emma's typical body language of mild disdain. (If you are trying to place the style? Timm is most famous for his work on DCU animated series. Unless you're just familiar with his nudie pictures.)

Why this piece is awesome: I was considering reccing this companion piece since it contains the more famous X-Lady, but in the end I decided that I love the mood of this X-23 piece a little bit more. I'm loving the subdued expression and body language in both, but Laura's expression and pose are just so very her. She could have walked right out of the comic book.

Why this piece is awesome: Loobeeinthesky is one of my favorite artists in the fandom, with a unique and beautiful style. These are beautiful panels that really remind me of color-inserts in manga, incredibly detailed with great angles and composition. Done for the 2011 X-Men Big Bang (fic found here). Fair warning: I haven't read the fic itself yet, so I'm presuming the art contains spoilers for it but I don't know for certain. But this art sure makes me want to read it!

Why this piece is awesome: (Done for the 2011 X-Men Big Bang.) I don't see a lot of femslash art in X-Men, and even less art of Moira, which means finding this left me pleased as punch. Also, the poster style delights me for reasons I don't understand. Moira's expression in the last one is perfect.

Why this piece is awesome: This is really beautiful, and I like the symbolism and the story it suggests. I mean, I assume the giant chess pieces are some sort of mental visualization by Charles, or maybe something else is going on, but it is very evocative.
