The Order of X - Beast by NateHallinanArt The Order of X - Beast by NateHallinanArt
Here are the character explorations of Beast. (Henrick McCoy)

Henrick's mind is a fierce as his appearance for he is a scholar of many disciplines. 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.

(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.

I like how it captures his intellect and strength at the same time. He looks like you could debate with him about what he's reading but you wouldn't want to argue with him at the same time, haha. I like the weight of that sketch, the costume design, and the bear/man balance (especially how you were able to capture the essence of the bear traits). Speaking on the costume, I enjoy how it looks a bit wild without looking overly barbaric or dungeon-slave like. I guess it's less circus bear and more intelligent beast. The various pouches on his belt give me the impression that he caries around and is always ready to collect specimens and other objects of interest. I also dig the idea of him having the back support you made notation of. Summed up, I think the first sketch carries the most possibilities and personality but that's only my opinion. I think they're all cool!

beautiful work, I like the concept of him more as a bear, then a blue ape like creature.
