Great illustration!

Found you through someones favorites and I been lookin at your work for the past few days and i still can't find a favorite. (though this one is up there)

the smoothness on these is unreal.. I seriously went shopping for a set of gray markers and a blender today but they were a bit too spendy for the moment.

We need to see vids of you doin this stuff....would be killer

Thank you for stopping by. Blenders are crap so you can save your money on those, but you can't go wrong with a set of Copics or Prismacolors. Copics are a bit cheaper in the long run with the refillable inks, but have a steeper up front cost. Good luck!

I have to ask what do you think of the ww2 style for the cap they are using in the movie, in case you have seen it

I think it looks ok. If there was ever a costume that looks great on paper and would look awful on the big screen, it's Cap's. The route they've gone is probably the only one that might work. We shall see. I do think Evans looks great as Steve Rogers.

Still amazed that you can do so much things with so simple tools.
I like the impacts on the wall. It gives all the ambiance.

Awesome piece! It looks like you were designing a statue, the way all the elements could be so nicely isolated in a standing view.

lol I went as Cap for Halloween and had a really sweet sweater that the hood was the mask, and had a storebought shield that was authentic sized.... so I went to this halloween party and saw this dood with the blow up muscles and the tiny shield, and i felt bad for him, especially when his girl was there with him and she had the female version of the costume.... he was happy to see another cap, so that made me feel good but damn was it nice to be walking around with that big @$$ shield=]

The knock out white, the negative space around the character and bricks. It really helps to pop everything out nicely.

I apologize if you answered this question elsewhere but what size boards do you use? do you prefer watercolor over acrylics for all your pieces? Your usage of mixed media is A winning technique.

:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010
My commissions are roughly 11 by 17 and it's a pretty comfortable size for markers. Smaller is usually easier when it comes to markers though. Never really used acrylics. I use watercolor because it's transparent..gouache would probably work just fine too, but watercolor's pretty straight forward, so I've stuck with it.

Thanks!
