The (Re)Making of a CAPTAIN AMERICA Classic Cover!

Just for fun, I decided to create an entirely new (fully painted) take on John Romita's fabulous 1969 cover to CAPTAIN AMERICA #113! Click below to follow along and enlarge images!

Below: Once I blocked out the logos and cover dress from a scan of the original cover,
I printed that portion out on watercolor paper. Next, I sketched in the faces and
elements, then began using marker to start putting in the basic values...

Below: The original '69 cover (left), and my finished cover (right), using marker, colored pencils, and ink! A fun project!

Below: My own "Captain America" cosplay, on which I based the above Cap head shot!
