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.
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.)

I’m trying to loosen up my pen and brush, and though this illustration’s a little wonky in spots, I’m happy with the overall effect.

Not exactly fat, but he should probably try to stick to a low-carb diet.
I know his cowl doesn’t look right. I was going for the his-face-in-shadow thing. I’ve been reading a lot of Batman: Black and White.
The consensus on the art in MetaMorphosis is that it could be better, so, with the aim of improving my craft, I’m trying out a crow quill in combination with a (cheap) Chinese brush. It ain’t Takehiko Inoue, but I’m working on it. The idea was to try to find a style in the medium by drawing/painting my personal take on a well-established character. It was a fun exercise.
