Ruckus by ladymadcat Ruckus by ladymadcat
Ladies and gentlemen, I present you my first X-Men-related fanart in a looooooong time: meet Ruckus, one of the most spectacular badguys in the X-world! Ruckus is the leader of Mr.Sinister's Nasty Boys, if you watched the cartoon (not Evo, I mean the old X-Men Animated Series), you probably remember him. In the comics he only appears a few times, but you gotta love his impudence, overconfidence and tacky style :P And that hair...... MadCat has learned a lesson while doing this fanart: achieving long and curly hair in Poser is pretty much impossible! So I had to resort to a few "nasty" tricks yet again to complete this piece and it still looks horrible but I'm uploading it anyway because there aren't many fanarts of this obscure comic book character ;)

From the preview, I thought this was a cosplay.

Nice to see the Nasty Boys again; I only saw them in the cartoon.

My favorite is Gorgeous George (the purple goo guy).

Hehe, thanks ;) I prefer to support the less known characters.

Gorgeous George seems to be the most popular of the Nasty Boys for some reason, followed by Ruckus.

I never knew that. I wonder why...

Maybe because he's Australian?

Either I didn't know that, or I've read it somewhere and then I totally forgot about it :P Aussies are cool ;)

My preference leans more towards the Marauders, but I love the voices for the Nasty Boys from the 90's X-Men cartoon.

LOL, that scene with Jean and Scott on the sailboat, and Ruckus - priceless!
I, too, like the Marauders, in fact I don't hate a single one of them, which is weird because my favs are the Acolytes and yet, I hate quite a few of them. Have you read the Messiah Complex? It featured the Marauders too, and they had some good moments.

LOL! That's exactly the scene I was thinking of! I love it when Sinister says " I'm proud of you." And Ruckus responds..."Hey, it's what I live for!" I don't really hate the Nasty Boys, Other than the cartoon and a few comics, I don't know much about them. I haven't read Messish Complex. I only get a GN once in a while. I stopped collecting around 2000. All my "hobby money" goes towards my art supplies, and my Marvel Legends collection.

Sadly, all I have is one poor, orphan Mr.Sinister action figure, my uncle brought it from Hungary (long story, haha) one year ago. As for comics, it's even more sad - there are simply none here!!! What can I do then, I collect the scans of what I need :( I'd gladly buy them if they were available but nobody imports them, and I can't afford the luxury of having them shipped here - a 3 dollar comic, plus 30 dollars shipping, and even then, it'd be uncertain if it'd arrive at all - that would be absurd. So, I'm hoping that maybe I'll find some online store in Hungary that is able to send packages here, that'd be much more affordable. You there in America are so lucky, Eastern Europe sucks from this point of view...

I understand how you feel. I grew up in a big city,(hated it) now I live in a small town where the closest comic shop is pretty far away. I don't like to drive, so I only recently bought a van. It's not legal yet, so I can't drive it very far. I used to have to ask a friend to drive me to a comic shop or a store for GN's, or Marvel Legends. So when I get the chance to go I spend at least $100. At least the nearest art supplies store is only 5 or 6 miles away. I like to go for walks, so when I need new stuff I plug some AC/DC in my mp3 player, and off I go. I'm sorry it's so hard for you to get stuff where you live. I really feel for you. :thumb56830730:

I live in a small town too, here in Dracula land, but I know that I won't find anything more in the bigger cities neither. When it comes to comics, Donald Duck and co., or Garfield and similar are what can be found in the stores, superhero stuff is pretty much absent :(
If I'd find a comic shop, I bet I'd spend a lot of money on crap, too :D But the closest one is in Budapest, Hungary, and I don't wanna go there.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it :) Not many people like Ruckus...
I wanted to post this at the CBR forums (I don't post there often, it's kinda... frightening there :P) some time ago, but I never saw any "Draw me an X" threads specifically about Nasty Boys fanart :(

Wow, he's pretty cool. Interesting hair color. Did you draw him, or make him in a 3d package?

I composed the figure in Poser, but in the original render he had shorter hair. Then, I rendered the long strands separately (actually, they're a close-up of the original hair which was too short) and post-worked them together in Photoshop, where I also made some other adjustments.

Man, everyone knows badasses truly wear pink for their awesomeness. I also think he looks like he could do extensive damage if given the right power and kick some non pink-wearing ass.

Good job on the art! I love your 3D renders.

He's got a cool power, that of absorbing the sounds in his environment, and shouting them back with an amplified force. This way he always manages to cause some..... ruckus :P
