From the Sketchpad: Captain America

January 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

More experiments in ink-wash, this time with Captain America.  I wanted to see how the technique might look with a comic book-style pinup, but I also wanted to try some sumi-e on an urban setting.

Captain America

Though I want to create a ink-wash comic style looser than Ditko’s and Thomas Yeates’, this is a bit muddy for my taste.  I didn’t really plan out the background as well as I should have, and the sky also looks like shit.  I should’ve just keep the natural elements with the sumi-e style brushwork, and using the crow quill more in the foreground.

(That fist also reminds me a lot of Sam Kieth.  I’ll probably try to go more cartoon-like in my character design.)
