Lay Your Burdens down by mbreitweiser Lay Your Burdens down by mbreitweiser
This was the very first piece I uploaded to DA. It barely had any views and I thought it deserved a little better, so I am re-uploading it so more folks can have a look. I hope that isn't rude. I'm certainly not one to fish for faves, I just want to share one of my favorite pieces with everyone:)

Anyways, this was the cover to Captain America: The Chosen. it's available as a hard or soft back graphic novel if anyone wants to check it out. I've always thought this would make a great movie poster. *hint hint*

Cheers,

-Mitch

I don't know if this is water color or guache, but I love the uneven tones and the way it carries the feeling of being thrown together with ease. God only knows how much time you actually spent on it.

Is this done with watercolor? I love the shadows and the way you moved from the blue to the white and the red. Really cool!

This great, I like how cap isn't quite a reflection in the shield, but seems more like a part of it in and of himself.
