Captain American PT. 1



The Drawergeek.com character this week is Captain America, which is one of my favorite characters so I had to do something! I don't have any time this week but I was in a meeting and did the rough "scribbles" version with a ball point pen. You will notice I had the arm with the shield originally going into the body. Bad silhouette, so I moved it off to the left and cleared the knee it was covering. The next drawing is a blue, tighter sketch of the scribble. It's a little light but the idea is that I want to color this by hand with markers and colored pencils probably. If I get the chance tonightish, I'll color it and post that. I leave town for a biz trip on Thurs. morning so I really don't have much time to finish this. If all goes wrong, hopefully, I'll at least ink the blue line version. Here's hoping....

Great lookin' sketch as always Tom! I think the blue line turned out great and,like you said, reads much better in silhouette. Here's hoping you have time to finish it, and if not, have a safe business trip man!

Awesome Cap! He's always been one of my favorites and you captured that heroic impact [ along with a cartooned touch ] perfectly!
