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.
What do you think?

I've always loved your work, and my brother and I try to buy most of the comics you're putting out. This is easily my favorite piece I've seen from you though, great job.

i think ironman helmet is a bit too much flat, and cap's spine does seem broken, but i'm know i'm harsh.

composition and perspective looks overall excelent but what's really good is the colourshading plus the tone you use for the background light effects.

i'd not mind a bit more detailed horses on the Reichstag :D

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.

the interaction between iron man's hand and the busted rebar reminds me of michelangelo's creation of adam.

and with that, the sistine chapel will for me be forever associated with red skull.

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.
