So terrific, Mario, from the wonderfully "big" hair, to that shy/contemplative bite-on-the-lip, to the wicked-cool starless-black body suit rockin' the metallic green shells! The Art Nouveau background is touching, and hints to the charcter's innocent years! Applause!

I would just like to say, to anyone who may be considering a commission with Mr. Chavez, he is a genuine pleasure to work with. Very professional, and works at a pace that amazes me. I've worked with other professional artists who are generally uncommunicative and take months to deliver your commission after demanding 100% upfront; Mr. Chavez is everything these artists are not. As you can see, his work is top shelf, and his chief concern is that the client is pleased with the finished product.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Fantastic piece; very well done! I am amazed at how coincidentally close her outfit is to a Green Lantern costume... all it needs is the Lantern emblem!

Hadn't considered that before. This costume is the one she wore immediately before the the green/yellow & leather jacket one that became synonymous with her; it's always been my favorite because it just has a sense of elegance about it. Then again, I'm a fan of opera gloves.

At this stage of the character's development, Rogue was still very much a shy, insecure teenager. I asked Mr. Chavez to give her a feel of a girl who just saw the boy she's crushing on enter the room, but hasn't yet noticed her standing there. She doesn't know what to do with her hands, and though it doesn't come through very clearly in the scan, she's blushing a bit at the thought of him coming over to say 'hi.'

First off, really excellent picture!

I like the Art Nouveau background and the light-bright pastels of the background colors. I like the blend of her hair into the Art Nouveau background, and finally I like that sexy lip grip she has on! I never know what kind of thing I might like to own until I see it, so I would have a hard time setting up a commission, but this is really nice.

Great piece, and I love it!

" I never know what kind of thing I might like to own until I see it, so I would have a hard time setting up a commission"

My recommendation is to start with a variation on a theme.

The genesis for this request started with the work "X-Women" from the painted "Marvels" series. (Do a Google image search; it's a first pager.) In it, you have Dazzler, Jean Grey, Rogue, Storm, Psylocke, and Mystique, posing for the camera; but unlike the other ladies, Rogue is very carefully studying her shoes. That always struck me a bit odd; all the other ladies are comfortable in their skin, but not Rogue. Then it occurred to me that, at this point in the character's development, she was still basically a kid, full of insecurity and angst, obsessing over her inability to touch. This was the last time she was ever portrayed in this way; when Marvel launched their second X-Men book, she was recast as an assertive, confident woman.

I wanted to capture a little bit of that innocence, that self-doubt, a photograph in time. That's how the above came about, working with Mr. Chavez, to convey that feel. Something tasteful, yet beautiful, that tells a story of a young Rogue full of nervous excitement, at the seeing her crush (Longshot?) walk in, hoping desperately to be noticed, yet terrified at the prospect. Mr. Chavez did the rest.

Hope this helps!
