Here is some of my inner circle ⭕️ @skylersamuels And @emmadumont plus addition of @jamiejchung sketch. Was going for gem and the hologram vibes on this piece. The women in the X-men universe are just super strong and complete badasses and that goes for the “villains” too. On a side note just being on set of the inner circle made me wanna draw it . Loved all the strong lines and that corridor gave me all the X-men nostalgia I needed. Swipe sketch journal part 5 #petergiftedsketches#blink#polaris#stepfordcuckoos#thegiftedonfox
The second season of The Gifted started last week, bringing back the refreshing story in the on screen X-Men universe. This season deals with the two contrasting sides of mutants and how they fight for their civil rights. At the end of last season we saw Polaris (Emma Dumont) and and Andy (Percy Hynes White) join the Hellfire Club and the Inner Circle who have a more aggressive approach of fighting for mutants as the government wants to lock up or kill them. Polaris left pregnant with Eclipse’s (Sean Teale) baby and wants to fight for a better future for her daughter. Their loved ones they left behind in the Mutant Underground move around the country looking for them and saving what mutants they can from raids. Caitlin (Amy Acker) is desperate to find her son which puts stress on her daughter Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) who has dreams of her brother. Their father Reed (Stephen Moyer) is dealing with how own struggles as some is happening to his body, probably his dormant mutant genes that his father tried to remove. Last year when this show hit the air it was probably one of the best XMen related things in the universe. Telling a family story of mutants through the Struckers and how they turn from being against mutants but now are the biggest champion of the cause. In an alternate universe where the X-Men have disappeared the series is a good look at a lot of other characters outside of the cinematic universe. Probably my favorite new show last year this season will look to build out the X-Men universe and delve deeper into underappreciated characters. The series also stars, Jamie Chung, Blair Redford and Skyler Samuels. New episodes air on Tuesdays at 8pm EST on Fox.
