Beast - The Order of X by NateHallinanArt Beast - The Order of X by NateHallinanArt
Beast (Henrick McCoy)

Henrick's mind is a fierce as his appearance. Henrick was coined the name “Beast” as a more ironic term of endearment. He is loved by his peers and is one of most wise and trusted members of Xavier's council. He is well educated and continues to be a scholar of many disciplines.

(Personal notes) There are several versions of Beast in the Marvel universe, but I thought it would be fun to do my own and make him more bear-like. Beorn from The Hobbit has always been an interesting character to me so I took the chance using him as an influence. The challenge to figuring out Beast's appearance is making him seem intelligent as well as wild. Quite a challenge with these polar characterizations.

Is he suppose to be a druid or something? Because he looks pretty ridiculous if he's not.

Wait, so he's got a bear form,.... and you talk of his "polar" characterizations?lol  I see what you did there.
Great job again on development.  I think I'd like to see your take on lots of alternate story lines.  I can only imagine how something like the Spiderman Unlimited (on the Counter Earth or whatever run by the High Evolutionary) would look if you were doing it.   I'm a big fan of anthropomorphic animals anyway, so this one really hits my buttons. ;o)

Thank you very much. Wish I had the time to take on pupils. Keep up the studies, you'll get there. I got here without a mentor but definitely check the tutorial videos like the gnomon workshop.
