X-Men Photoshops

Classic Angel Photoshop

When Photo-shopping pictures was a cool trend on the net I tried my hand at making my own photo-manipulation artwork. Back then, I was heavily into all things related to Marvel's X-Men. Especially the early 90s cartoon with that guitar riff for an introduction.

Angel was one of the characters I liked but soley for the reason that he went out with Psylocke(telepathic ninja girl with a personality problem). At the time, an online friend had a birthday so I made him the above photomanip because Angel was actually his ultra favorite.

Long story short - I made this happily for a friend that later on turned out to be a fr-enemy.

Classic Jean Grey Photoshop

And here we have Jean Grey(telepathic telekinetic with boyfriend issues) in her classic uniform from that same era. You can see that I had trouble with the arm pieces but back then it was more about getting ideas out then actually being perfect at the art. It's still one of my favorite photoshops.

Poor Jean, I have no idea why Marvel hates her so much. She's constantly tortured to be with a douche boyfriend and gives her tragic story lines that always ends up with her dying terribly.

I think I'll always just remember her as a kind heroine that wanted to do what was right no matter what challenges came her way.


Thanks for viewing!

Hello and welcome,

I'm Wendy May, a Fantasy author. When I was a child there were two constants in my life; drawing and writing. My imagination freely took me to fantasy lands of adventure. I often spent hours thinking up mystical worlds that were inhabited by amazing and whimsical characters. During times when I felt the most alone my stories were what kept me going. And so, I'd love to share them with you in the hopes that you'll happily lose yourself in the fantastical worlds I've created. Take a moment to step away from the rigors of life and join me in a fun adventure!

My Book Cover Failures

Hi, it's Wendy May! Okay, so lately I've been posting about my photo design journey to creating my own book covers. I've shown a few book covers that I thought were okay. Not good, not wonderful, but passable. As in they don't appear to be scraps of DIY made in Microsoft's Paint program.

Let's talk about Fantasy Adventure

Hello everyone, November is shaping up to be an extremely busy month. I imagine it's pretty hectic for you too? Unfortunately, I have to keep working. Writing each day to meet certain goals, photo-shopping various book covers, or re-working old ones to entice new readers. And that's just the side stuff! Props goes to all the people in the world that can juggle a multitude of tasks each day without going crazy. I'm almost at the point of flipping my desk over. Sometimes life can get pretty hard. Thankfully, I do have a ton to keep my mind off the more negative things. For example this month is November. Some of the holiday romance story ideas I have pitched to my editor were the following:

Zombie Cinderella © 2016 : She loses her foot instead of a shoe.Turkey and the Feast © 2016: A billionaire is cursed into the body of a turkey. He has until Thanksgiving to convince a woman to love him or he becomes dinner. My editor patted me on the head as if I was a child then told me …
