Captain America Revamped by DavidFernandezArt Captain America Revamped by DavidFernandezArt

I was conversing with my buddy ~Lewis-Paul, and as he was looking at my "Teen Titans Revamped" series, he asked if I was going to do the same for my favorite MARVEL characters, and I thought "Hey, why not?"

Since I already unknowingly started revamping my favorite characters, starting with Spider-Man: [link] , I decided to take it one step further and start doing the good ol' AVENGERS.

This is the first in the series, Captain America.

Now Captain America is defenitely a Marvel Classic, as well as a Legend in himself, so I couldnt in good conscience alter is outfit TOO much.

Since I liked his look already, I just decided to take elements from the mainstream Captain America, and splice his costume with that of ULTIMATE Captain America, and voi la! I got his costume.

Anyway, Im redesigning all their costumes because Ive created my own little Universe for them, and they'll all be "guess-starring", so to speak, in each others lives (lol). Ill be doing the main players in the Avengers, as well as some of the X-Men. The Fantastic Four, maybe not so much.

Enjoy ^^

The shield is WAY too small. That's my only beef with it.
SupremeCommander85 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011
It's good but I'm not a big fan of having the wings on his head being part of his costume. I would rather have them "printed" flat on his costume but not necessarily being part of his costume. Also, I think that there should be an A on his head.

I feel like the shield's too small. But other than that, great work!

I like his costume, but his shield is too small.
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2011  Professional Artist
Yeah, I realized that after I finished it :(

Wow, thats amazing. May I ask what you used to make to create this, other than your amazing talents! I'm curious.... Im barely 14 and I love the way the colors came out! What brand or type of colors/markers did you use because I wanted to see If i could get some myself! Did you use a special kind of paper? I am truely astonished by the great detail and the perfect color theme that you used!

best costume of Cap.. n i thought da Ultimate was goodbut dis is awesome man
jirehpv Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2010  Student Digital Artist
nicely done
KreepingSpawn Featured By Owner May 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
excellent! i really like this; nice clean lines, good proportions, bold color. slick detaling on the costume.

my only crit is that his salute looks... too casual. i think because he is not standing at attention to deliver it. that's a personal nitpick, feel free to disregard! ;)
laviathan05 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2009
cap.........ultimate alliance 2 character im using its gonna be freakin insane
marvelun1verse Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2009
nice dude n make the shield bigger its hard to avoid bullets with a plate in your, seriously its awesome
shadowdude7 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009
I wonder if he has a trademark punch...
Cecilia-Of-Sweden Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
This picture is really good. I like the shield and I want to ask you if I can borrow the lineart for that shield. I am going to make a post-appocalyptic, more beat up version of the cap's shield and since I can not do something smoothround like that on photoshop, I wonder if I can borrow it? Ofcorse I will credit you in the description.
Dune-Cat Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Perfect melding of the two costumes, good mix :thumbsup:

Cap is mah fave evah! =D
LeoKingdomMaster Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2008
Sorry it took me so long to comment, but here it is. I love the over all design, but he just looks to thin, like I could break him like a twig. A little more bulk would look good.

"Thumbs up Soldier!!!"

Kickass work on one of the best superheroes ever :salute:
bryan821 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008
you should redo thor or iron man like this that would be awsome...this is awsome to very creative S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on his shoulder cool:p
MegamanNeos Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2008
Is he a SHIELD agent?
MaxiAntonio Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow!!!! Esse uniforme com aspecto de armadura ficou incrível!!!! Parabens!!!
RazielXavier Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
FREAKEN SWEET!!! I have to say that this picture has given me an all new look at Captain America. I use to hate him. now I think he's awesome.
Halfbakedone Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2007
Interesting take on the guy. Being a huge fan of Cap I am always a bit touchy about changing him. But I do love reimaginings of characters. I like this, I like it alot. FAVED!
TeknomanScimitar Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007
great work, but id love to see an attempt at Iron man or Moon Knight
randkai Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2007
its cool, but i dont like the wings, and you saw the alex ross model its kick ass!!!but it always seems to keep the wings, but why did you decide to put S.H.I.E.L.D's logo on his arms?
that really doesnt fit you know?
also, the shield is a little bit too small
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2007  Professional Artist
I realized the shield was too small after I inked it, and the s.h.i.e.l.d. logo on his shoulders is because the Avengers in my story are under the jurisdiction of s.h.i.e.l.d., like in The Ultimates.
randkai Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2007
very very preety wise, that sounds good, but it , i dont know is like throwing a coca cola logo on his chest and a nascar one on his back
poohdiddle83 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2007
Very well done.
blamblam Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thats really good
AJ-Prime Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sweet job Man, the only beef I got with it is the no "A" on his forehead, but other than that it's a kickass design. :3

Too bad Cap's dead. T^T

Heeey, maybe you could get 'em to use this for the new Cap?
flagitious Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007
I actually like it! And mind you, Cap never really did it for me. Thank you for removing the A on his forehead. The symbol is so much cooler. And thank you, for keeping the little wings too. That part, I liked. =D Good job!
NsomniacArtist Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
*sniffs* this brings back memories...poor cap. Do you think they'll bring him back? He's like superman, and they brought him back from the dead!


I have to say my fav parts are the boots and gloves. I could never properly design them myself.

*thumbs up* i like it!
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007  Professional Artist
Yeah, they'll defenitely bring him back. Hes too much of an important figure to be left dead. Even though hes not really dead, I have a feeling he might be gone for a while.
NsomniacArtist Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yea, i hear they're looking for those who can take over the captain america title. There are surprisingly a lot of super soldiers, i saw atleast like 7 of them. I knew one was Patriot from young avengers but i really doubt he would want to be the next cap america.

I was on steve's side during the civil war and everything. wasn't he shot? so it was like no magical death or what not?
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2007  Professional Artist
I was Captain America's side, but at the same time I totally understood where Iron Man was coming from. I mean, each side had valid points, its just that Iron Man was more of a dick when it came to execution of his ideas. I mean, allowing extremely dangerous criminals to become the Thuderbolts? That was just reckless.
NsomniacArtist Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I agree, thats why it was hard to choose a side. but i seriously didn't like the idea of registered heroes. I think it misses the point. next you'll have to submit a report of every good deed a hero does.
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Professional Artist
I like the ideas of being registered, but the way Iron Man went about it was crappy. He did a lot of questionable things to get his point across. But at the same time, Captain America WAS the one to throw the first punch. In issue #3, when Iron Man ambushed Caps people, Iron Man was the one who was like "Please, lets just talk this over like civilized people. I dont want a fight." But Cap had to be all 1940's gun-ho about it and throw the first punch.

Both sides have valid arguments.
NsomniacArtist Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeap i agree
DavidFernandezArt Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2007  Professional Artist
Nah, he was just shot a couple of times in the back and chest.
NsomniacArtist Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Damn then they can't blame it on a magical death and there be a loophole about bringing him back. It had to be a 'natural' death.
lordstorm Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007
I love this take on Ol' Cap, but for some reason (probably nostalgia) I think I like his shield a bit bigger, like twice a decent targe (Scottish shield usually worn with a spike on the shield and a dagger in the hand under it). This looks closer to a buckler, and a bit too small for him to actually duck behind for cover if shot at.

thats really good! i heart comic book characters!
