Captain America. 2011. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.
I hope you all enjoyed The Avengers this weekend. Judging by the record-breaking opening, I'm guessing everyone went. I'm probably going to go again once the crowds thin out a bit.
While Cap is probably still my favorite of the team, I like his WWII-era suit better. I hope they can incorporate some of the old-school elements in the next iteration. I've been toying with the idea of designing a revamp myself, just for fun.
It's tough to make those costumes work in the real world, and the design team made a lot of subtle, but key decisions that helped to bridge the gap. Iron Man still wins for me in terms of sheer cool factor. I'd love to get to see a full armory of suits in Iron Man 3.
