"Steve?"

"Yes Bucky, it’s me. Whatever they did to you, it’s gonna be okay."


My attempt to capture the moment when Bucky recognises Steve. Paint Shop Pro + Wacom tablet + too much time.

I painted this before the Winter Soldier film, I do like how they had Bucky recognise Steve in the end. Ugh, it made so much sense that one of the things that confused him was the Steve had had the serum. And Steve, bless, tried to put on the old Cap uniform to remind Bucky who he is. But Bucky didn't remember Cap, only the skinny little kid...

Amazing! I have no idea if this was part of the movie because, I've never watched the movie but, I think this is part of the movie.

Thank you! But, ah, no, I painted this before the movie came out! ;) It was my take on how the scene might play out in the movie, possibly. In the end it was a lot more heartbreaking!
Ghost889913ab's avatar
Oh. Okay! It's still great! And, what happened in the ending? (I haven't watched the movie and I just really want to know what happened! I have a theory that Bucky got killed though.)

No, he doesn't die, but Steve almost does, it's basically a suicide bid, cause he'd rather die than live in a world in which Bucky doesn't recognise him, in which he died (/got frozen) for nothing, and in which everything else is also screwed up too as far as he's concerned. In the end Bucky saves him though.

I knew Bucky would save him! How does he save him though?

Well, Bucky almost beats him to death, at the last minute it's implied he has a flashback to when Steve as skinny!Steve, but then Steve falls into a river - Bucky jumps in after him and drags him to shore. There must have been some mouth to mouth, but that wasn't shown, lol. When he's breathing Bucky just leaves him at the shore though and walks off.

YES THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE MOVIE.
It broke my heart when Steve was falling and then we see that Bucky recognizes him again... but as soon as he hit the water I knew what would happen next ^^
AMAZING piece of art!

Thank you!!! I'm glad you like it so much! :D :D :D

I didn't know what would be in the movie when I drew this of course, but I do think they did it really well. But AAAAAAHHHH that scene! I just wanted to hug Steve tight! :'( Wish Bucky had stuck around longer to take care of him properly.

I think we all wanted Bucky to stay! But it looks like finding him and helping him heal will be for the next Captain America movie.

Considering Seb Stan's 9 film contract, it could be for the next several films, lmao.
