I just did this piece for fun as Captain America is not a character I've attempted very often. It's a bizarre coincidence that the one time I try drawing him is during a week where there is all sorts of big Cap news in comics.
In terms of the color version, I wanted to very much keep the desaturated palette used ( and probably overused to some extent) in a lot of recent war movies. My challenge was in trying to make sure Cap's signature reds and blues didn't contrast too sharply from the world around him.
With the initial drawing, I wanted to give it a bit of a feel like those old World War II photos that have very stark black shadows in the foreground contrasted by very smokey/white backgrounds.
Studiomate JJ Kirby was invaluable in helping me with Cap's pose and shield. Thanks, J!
See you next time!
