Cap bust by ChristopherStevens Cap bust by ChristopherStevens
Cap's always a good choice if you get on my commission list. A costume I never get tired of working on. Even those damned scales that I can't seem to bring myself to shortcut on. Wish I'd used the warm greys on this one though...maybe on the next.

Prismacolor cool greys, Dr. Martin's Bleed Proof White paint and color pencil on vellum bristol

Captain America Marvel Comics

Those chainmail links are insane! Awesome work on the reflections in the shield as well. Cap's head has a very Ron Garney kinda look to it, which is compliment as I loved his run on the book. Neat background as well.

Badass texture and detail in the background. Too realistic for my humble eyes :)

Awesome lighting. Very impressive use of paper's white for highlights and figure completion and isolation. I don't like Cap America character, but this piece is just superb.

Great use of negative space on this one, the textures really turned out fantastic too.
I think the cool grays fit the character more since they have more of that blue hue than the warm grays.

Thanks. I would've used the warm greys on the reds of his suit and shield. Next time....
