Just some sketches i did based around a fic I’m writing. Its a high school AU (original, i know) based around my favorite x-man, Scott summers. It's already up to chapter 3 on ff.net and I'm going to throw in the description that's up there.
Say your girlfriend is crushing on your gym teacher that hates you, would that somehow justify making out with the hot blonde transfer student? Yeah, didn't think so. Just checking. My name is Scott Summers, a certified loser, and this is the story about how I sabotaged my own, already pathetic, life.

I have a dirty love of high school AU fics and I can't hide it. Plus, the whole Jean/Scott/Emma love triangle has always cried out to be written as a high school drama. Throw in Wolverine for good measure and it just writes itself.This story is also going to be more realistic than others I've done. Less 'wacky sitcom situations' and more 'realistically awkward and lame high school situations'. Plus it's also kind of fun because I feel less uptight about what I can include in it. I feel uncomfortable making characters swear in my disney stories because...well...it's disney. It's too sweet and innocent to bring up stuff like that! But X-men...ooooh boy the x-men. I feel no guilt about making these guys swear and cuss and drink and shag like sailors.
Anyway, to the actual sketches. Even though the story is told entirely through Scott's POV, I mostly just drew outfits Emma would wear. The skirt in the top pic is a famous Chanel design from the nineties (because of course Emma would own real vintage Chanel)and Of course its unrealistic and completely inappropriate compared to what girls should wear to school, but this is Emma Frost. She wears what she damn well wants and she knows it looks good. The mini dress is obviously not school wear, just a going out dress. the bottom 3 are just rougher un-coloured ones.
Plus I've been practicing a lot of side profiles and i think I'm finally becoming decent at it.
