TRDL 2014 Series, No. 11 – Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Cap 2. I loved this movie immensely: I was a huge fan of the comic run (though never one of WS’ design) and I’m into espionage action films like the Bourne series, plus Widow had great hair, so what’s not to love? For this piece, what I did was focus on an element of the film’s combat I really enjoyed: not only two similar supersoldiers fighting on an even playing ground, but the impact between the cybernetic arm and the shield. Throw physics of all that out the window and just enjoy that unstoppable force vs immovable object aspect of it… anyway, I LOVE the film’s version of the ‘Steve Rogers Agent of SHIELD’ uniform, and was itching to draw it then and there. I also wanted to convey the power and intensity of Winter Soldier and how Cap was surprised at how formidable he was, his equal or better physically, so I put WS above coming down on Cap in a defensive position.
