I seem to be an obsessed fan with a one-track mind. Here is my third rendition of my favorite Avenger, Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel. (And I cannot begin to tell you how in love I am with the current book. It is Carol Danvers as she was always meant to be written.)

I feel like I achieved something new here, in the technical sense. I'm not sure what, but I definitely learned a lot while working on this piece. Also, I forced myself to make an actual background for once. (Sort of.)

Photoshop/Illustrator CS5 with a Wacom Intuos 3.

You do an amazing Captain Marvel.  I’ve not always been sold on her helmet in the books, but you make it work.  The stars framing her fist (Binary stars? Or am I reading too much into it?) add a nice visual something-something, very eye-catching.

Not reading too much into it at all.  I definitely put a binary star there very much on purpose.  I think you're the first person to notice it!

And thanks for the kind words.

Huzzahs to me!  But the only reason I caught it probably has to do with Binary being my favorite of Carol’s names.

While I'm not a big fan of the new costume I do think it looks better with the pseudo-helmet. :)

Yep! She made her debut with the new suit and new title in July of 2012.

It's high time you De-Throned Joe Quiñones as Carol's cover artist.

Heh. I wouldn't say no! (Though the Quiñones covers have been a lot of fun.)

And thanks for the kind words.

I agree on his covers being fun.

You two should rotate issues!
