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

Just wanted to let you know that someone submited your artwork as their own for a contest @ the phoenixcomicon.com all they did was colored it. Just thought you should know.

That's amazing! It doesn't even look like it son paper! This looks like it could have been done in Photoshop or even some 3D imaging software, thats how awesome this is lol. You give it such form! Outstanding work!

With the white paint you can go right over the greys and the white covers them, so you can do highlights and corrections?

I can't believe you don't use a shortcut, that must be exhausting. Fantastic detail and expression, though. I really can't wait for this movie... they better not screw it up...

Wow! I love the use of white space here. The lights and darks are very well balanced. I didn't notice the background pattern at first, but damn, it looks amazing. Great Work!

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.

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.
