Beautifully painted, I like the monotone background and how ultimately the red wash disappears as we get closer to Captain America thereby making him the first read in this fine illustration. I also admire your sense of framing and composition. Making the Red Skull slightly off kilter or imbalanced in that hes not standing up straight but at a slight angle really works to amplify hes a villain in the composition and the framing works beautifully as you give us objects in the extreme foreground that immerse the viewer and makes us feel like we are observing this. The background behind the Red Skull also give us a sense of scale and works well to ground him in the environment. Again, beautiful work.
This is absolutely epic! I don't know if I've ever seen Red Skull look so triumphant hahah Really dig the fully painted look, it seems pretty different than your usual style (which is awesome anyway, very "old school"). All around amazing stuff man!
i like everything about this piece except iron man's head! like someone has already noted, it seems a little bit small. more than that, though, it seems to me like some of the lines are somehow off, making it look like it's just the slightest bit disproportionate or out of perspective. that being said, i suck and you draw for marvel, so take my words with a grain of salt.
did the mrs. color this one? shes a beast when it comes to making things look retro so i just sorta assumed....cuz this looks retro.....0.o...btw ms. marvel could totally wake up and kick skully in the nads and all would be taken care of
wow! this picture is awesome on so many levels, still so envious of your ink work, would love to see just the inked version of this! but those colours are so sweet argh! an my capt america comic collection grows ever bigger hehe
That Critique option is awesome. 100 word minimum is great, rather that end end critiques. As always awesome work Mitch. Obviously by know you know I enjoy your work, but your also getting better. I feel this is a Good example of it. How where those Marvel Classes/seminar by the way?
I just sort of hit a brick wall with it. It was starting to look muddy. i put it away to get a fresh set of eyes on it, but I just couldn't bring myself to pick it back up. I put it off until the day it was due and just hoped that the deadline pressure would force a little inspiration. I'm pretty pleased with it overall.
Ah, i have been fortunate enough not to run into that type of problem in particular. I stop working on stuff simply because i get bored or distracted (i have A.D.D.). You should definitely be please with it, it looks wonderful
