Digital painting superhero step by step Captain America

Digital painting superhero step by step Captain America. Continuing drawing and painting of Marvel superhero Captain America from the previous posted, Superhero art tutorial Captain America. I just update the sketch and fresh it out a little more. Well, this one suppose to be a quick couple hours but I got carried away and now I am trying to make the best out of the initial painting. Hopefully it will turn out how I want it to look in the final illustration. At this point of painting, I should leave the figure pretty as is unless there are some drastic change in the overall image. I painted the his facial feature to be a little more expressive, then his gloves/ hands then the shield. Honestly the shield is the tricky one, take me quite sometime to get the perspective to look right. The background will take me sometime to try to finish and make it look, well, good. So hopefully the next post I could finish this one up and look presentable. :)

Octavian> Thanks man, NO one can ever be too old for superheros or heroins ;)

Niao> Well, that's easy...find some objects or photo ref or any inspiring image then study it. Just draw, paint, copy, steal, study to kill time while in a rut... then eventually something will come eventually. :)
