TRDL 2014 Series, No. 17 – Sharon Carter

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Sharon Carter, from the Captain America books. I’ve always been drawn to the concept of Sharon, if not the execution. Blonde agent in all white tactical gear, sure! Yet other than in the last few years of incredible Cap stories under then and of artists like Epting and with scripts like these, I just never felt there was any THERE there. Her costume details always seemed so arbitrary and thrown together. I wanted it to be more than just a white version of SHIELD gear (and why would that exist anyway) so I designed a one piece bodysuit with some piping and ribbing and integrated elbow armor. The buckly belts were fun too, to give it some visual texture. For fun, I gave her a big gun with that same cosmic cube blue energy that we’ve seen from all the MCU Hydra stuff and throughout the Cap films, just to tie it all together.
