Captain America Artist Sketch card for Upper Deck's 2018 Marvel Premier set

December 27, 2017

 

 

 

At ease soldier! Here's the 1st card I illustrated for Upper Decks 2018 Marvel Premier set. The noble and determined Steve Rogers aka Captain America, defender of truth, honor and justice. The first super human soldier, Captain America is a man who always does what's morally correct and just despite the consequences. He's a Nazis worst nightmare and the ultimate social justice warrior who will kick racist ass in the teeth and I for one, proudly stand with him. He's a leaders leaders leader and then some. A man living out of time in his own future due to being a capsicle, he awoke from cryogenic sleep decades after preventing a bomb from reaching the United States with his pal Bucky. We will get to Bucky later.

About illustrating these cards: There was lots of experimentation using colored inks from thin Staedtler markers but they were bleeding on the paper (actually thick illustration board) so I decided on finally using Pitt pens and Jelly Roll pens over the saturated Tombow markers, old Tria markers and few Copics that I own. Also, I used the design motiff Upper Deck printed on the cards in silver foil as a way to frame the portraits.
