I Am Cap by ChristopherStevens I Am Cap by ChristopherStevens
A very fun cover series. I was given the SEAL frogman cover, but they were all cool ideas IMO. Take Americans doing their jobs and put them in Captain America inspired outfits or color schemes.

This cover was used for Uncanny X Force #12 I believe.

Done with my usual microns on smooth bristol board.

Cap Marvel Comics

I like the detail especially the hatching and shadows. Im also aspiring to be a great inker. I dont suppose there's a variant cover for this without colors? I want to get my hands on one.

Missed this the first go round, impressive line work and detail. The rendering is really well suited and doesnt overpower the image. Curious how the colors came out--Marvel has a tendency to color dark...wonder if your detail was lost?

Thanks. This was actually colored very well. I can't remember the colorist, but I was happy with it and that's usually not the case.

Thanks. The cover wasn't for any specific book. They just do a series of covers and randomly choose which cover goes where.

I love the crusty growth detail on the metal!

one little technical detail you may or may not want to use later: SEALs use rebreathers, which don't emit bubbles (it doesn't give their position away)... a looong time ago, Travis Charest drew (bad-ass of course) an Image comic where he had special ops divers blowing bubbles left and right (I remember it was in a calm pool of water and the enemy was right on top of them)... I don't know if he paid attention to my comment (mail, haha)... but anyway maybe you could use it. I know sometimes artists go ape-shit hearing about little technical details and errors, but the purpose of comments like this I bet is not to knock the artist or his/her art, but to help... I think this particular detail makes it even more challenging to draw a piece like this one, where the artist has to convey that the subjects are underwater, and you can't use the obvious bubbles off their breathing apparatus... but it'd definitely give the art a little extra 'oomph' :) (not that you need it :lol:)

Thanks for the post. I yeah I was aware of that. Its one of those comic cheats. I knew the bubbles didn't belong, but it really helps sell the underwater feel and give the piece some movement.
