Captain America by mbreitweiser Captain America by mbreitweiser
It's Finished!

UPDATED: I just heard back from Marvel, and they are thinking about using it as a cover. I really just did this as a learning experience, so it's nice to know I might get paid for it:)

Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions and sent me helpful links. You all really helped my first digital painting a success! I've really raised the bar with this piece, and now I have to force myself to keep this level of craftsmanship in all my work. Special thanks to :iconadonihs: for sharing his personal brush collection.

This piece is a personal best for me, and I really feel like I have raised the bar in regards to the level of craftsmanship that I expect out of my work.

I hope You all enjoy the new piece! Now I am off to paint an Avengers cover that Marvel has asked me to do ;)

Picked this one up yesterday! I hated that they put the big gaudy blue border around it...but even still it was a really beautiful image for the cover. And the book itself was a great read, too, so that was icing on the cake. Way to go!

Awesome! thanks for picking up the book. Sucks about the borders on those covers.

Yeah. For one, it made the image so small, and two, the crazy royal blue color was terrible for the art. It was such a groaner.

Well, at least the unaffected image is the wallpaper on my 24". Thanks for submitting those in 1920x1200! :highfive:
