What do you do when it’s your destiny to be damned? For centuries, that is the question that has plagued each wielder of the Ebony Blade... with all of them eventually meeting untimely ends due to the sword’s curse. And it is the question the current Black Knight, Dane Whitman, must ask himself as his addiction to the blade grows ever stronger and he finds himself in the aptly named Weirdworld. What are the circumstances that brought him to leave Earth and enter this strange and dangerous realm? And what do the Uncanny Avengers have to do with it? Find out here in this new ongoing tale of sword, sorcery and one man’s struggle to not lose his soul.
Yesterday I posted a nice piece of art by Nick Law of Betsy Braddock. I kept looking at it thinking there's something familiar about it, which prompted a search of any Betsy material I'd posted so far.
In 2012 I posted photo's of a great Cosplay by the lovely 'Gillykins' posing as Betsy Braddock in pink. This is obviously the inspiration for Nick Laws piece of art. I've put the two photo's side by side to show the similarities between the two. Every artist has a muse...
Both are very good, and both are forms of art, but which is the better? the original cosplay, or the copied, enhanced, digital art?
Here's a great piece of art by Nick Law (NickLaw-Artes) featuring our Betsy, posted in his DeviantArt gallery. He's titled it 'Psylocke', then goes on to say 'This is Psylocke I love. No, I do not like the Ninja version.'.. I hear you brother, and totally agree with you.
As far as I'm concerned anything pre-ninja isn't Psylocke, just Betsy Braddock. The whole Psylocke body-swap thing happened, then she became Psylocke.
Anyway here's the art...

Spotted this piece of Excalibur art on DeviantArt by a 'Digital Artist' who posts under the name 'xcub (Psi-Man)'. A nice mash-up featuring the original line-up in their original costumes with a few added members for good measure. I like the idea of Betsy Braddock being a member of the team, nice.

All of your favorite web-slinging wonders from SPIDER-VERSE, together in one place! It’s high-stakes action when ELECTRO threatens all of reality! From their base on Earth-001, it’s up to SPIDER-GWEN, SPIDER-MAN NOIR, SPIDER-MAN INDIA, SPIDER-UK, SPIDER-HAM and a TON of other surprise spider-guest stars to stop him!
I've been a tad bit busy of late, hence the lack of updates on my Blog, but service will now be resumed once more, starting with this wonderful piece of Betsy Braddock art.
I recently drew an alternative cover for an online comic called Defenders UK, which I've featured on here several times. As way of thanks, the author/artist, (and friend of mine) of this comic asked me who I would like in return. After much pondering I chose our dear old Betsy, but in her early guise. I'm not a big fan of Psylocke (shock, horror!), I much prefer the original English rose that is, or was.
For his muse Izzy used the actress Amber Anderson, who I'd not heard of, but a quick Google image search and I can see why he chose her, good choice.
Alas I can't reveal my art just yet, but will be able to in the spring of 2016 when issue three of Defenders UK is scheduled to be released.
