Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 109
Mythos: Captain America, Page 12, Panel 3. 2008.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 x 17".
In this recreation of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I used a die-cast model (which my roommate happened to own) as a reference for the 3 Mitsubishi A6Ms (better known as the Japanese Zero). The background is primarily based on the famous image of the USS Shaw, among others. As you can see, the photos were taken during the drawing process, since I am most often concerned with composition prior to specific details.
