Thanks to Adonis for putting the sketch opportunity together and really being the man behind the scenes organizing it all. I was fairly oblivious to this form of collecting, and it's much bigger, and WAAAY cooler than I had ever known. Checking out the other books from various artists that are just simply amazing is quite humbling.
Again, I got to finish up the batch with Captain America. This one and the previous Thor sketch, were for Adonis. He has specifically asked for a Cap version of the Uncle Sam "I want You" WW2 Poster pose. It was fun to recreate and I got to spend more time on rendering and trying out new techniques instead of coming up with a composition or pose. I really enjoyed this one.
So thanks again to Adonis and the group from The Collector Society "Signature Series" message boards that have given me the chance to doodle on these books a bit. You all seem like a tight group of guys and gals that have a passion for art and comics.
