Wither by Autumn-Sacura Wither by Autumn-Sacura
Kevin Ford aka Wither from New X-men. His power is to... khm, withering things. And not only plants. I don't like him, I just wanted to draw withered flowers ^__^
SAI, few hours.

Great drawing of Kevin.  I loved him in those first few issues, New Mutants #3-6, and have such fond memories of reading those in my college days.  Then they did everything possible to ruin him: cancelling New Mutants, turning him into a complete moron in "Choosing Sides", and finally killing him off.  Granted, the "I'm a teenage boy who can't share physical contact with anyone because everything I touch disintegrates" had been done before, and better, with Scuzz in DP7, but Kevin's outlook was unique and gave him a lot of potential.  Shame that they wasted it.

Anyway, I love the tone you've created for him: sombre, but not brooding.  His face shows such a calm, sort of cold acceptance of his fate.  Nicely offset by the characteristic gentleness with which he holds the flower.  You've captured his hair style perfectly, too.

I agree, he was a characters with so much potential! I kinda stopped reading X-men after almost all of New Mutants were written off.

Academy X ftw! IU love the mournfulness in his expression, and the low wilt of the flower...

Poor guy, loved him in the Acadamy days but it all went downhill for him after Childhoods End. Wish they couldve done a little more with him. :( Great drawing though!
