TRDL 2013 Series, No. 43 – Winter Soldier [TRDL Redesign]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Winter Soldier, the identity Bucky carried after being fished out of the sea and turned into a Soviet supersoldier assassin. I LOVED the entire run of Captain America during this period: Bucky’s return as Winter Soldier, and later his role as Captain America when Steve Rogers appeared dead or whatever that ended up being about. I’m a big fan of next-generation legacy characters, like Bucky’s Cap or Dick’s Batman. It’s a shame the editors are so afraid to maintain that as the status quo for too long, especially when there are movies to tie into. I did a TRDL Redesign of Bucky as Winter Soldier. I never could rationalize his look in the comics with the chrome arm and the hair and the domino mask. I gave him paratrooper gear, a parachute pack, weapons, a dark matte black arm (though I kept it exposed as a propaganda tool) and I used grease paint over the eyes as a nod to the comic mask.
