Cap. America 26 interior page

This is the first page I colored in issue 26 of Marvel Knights' Captain America. The pencils are by Chris Bachalo and inks by Tim Townsend. I did a few things I don't normally do on this one. First off I went out and took photos of the sky to find a nice subtle backdrop for this pic. Chris likes to use photos in his colors, so I thought I'd keep with it. Another thing is that Chris only drew about 4 bombs in this pic, so the small ones at the top of the page were from me. I just duplicate the ones there and scaled them down.

Love this image. It is one of my fave Cap pics out there. Love the gloomy coloring and Cap looks fantastic.

Of course he had to be well endowed and be seen on a phallic symbol of power or no one would have taken him seriously! LOL
Captain America obviously had to well endowed and riding on a phallic symbol of power! LOL

Adding those bombs REALLY pumped the composition. Excellent colors. Very Dr. Strangelove.

Thanks! Although the submission by Soupnutz on that page is copyright infringement. He is not the original artist. It's taken from the cover of Captian America 13 for Marvel comics and has been resigned by him. [link]

Can you tell me why dose Waptain America's Shild changes shape from round to "shild" shaped. I was never a fan of him but it has always bothered me. (please tell me it's to do with story and not just what each artist thinks is best).

When the first comicbooks of Cap started (during WW2, that's when the character first appeared on the market, way before Stan Lee/ Jack Kirby did him) he had that "shield-shaped" shield.

In the Kirby-age the artist redesigned him a little reshaping his shield to the well known disc.

So now most modern comicstories where Cap is fighting in WW2 refer to "shield-shape" iin regards to his original look and to make it appeal more vintage. So it is basicly depending on the story.
