Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 72
Mythos: Captain America, page 12, panel 5 (2008)
gouache and acrylic on bristol board
Steve Rogers, his cover blown, informs Bucky of his new sidekick status.
Using my trusty Steve Rogers maquette, I snapped a pic with the appropriate lighting. I used this in conjunction with a photo I took of myself (shown below), the main purpose of which was for color.
This pic was taken during the painting process. Surrounding the active area are my study and reference photos. You can see where I've matched color swatches directly on my digital color study printout. Everything is held in place with my trusty magnets and dry erase board.
