The Marvel Captain Marvel

I don't read as many comics as I used to. Not just due to economics but that I don't enjoy many comics anymore. I guess the comics of my youth are my comics forever. I do remember Carol Danvers from when I was a kid only she was called Ms. Marvel back in the day. Saw her change costumes a few times and remember when she lost her powers as well. Not much after that. I was actually quite surprised that she is Captain Marvel now. I went to the new MCU movie recently with my family to watch this interpretation of the character and thought that the movie was...........ok. It wasn't great by any means and some of that is from knowing that most of the characters are not in any mortal danger. Since it takes place in the past and we know that they are still around in the present, that they survive. Some of the Star Wars prequels suffered this as well. I think it puts a much heavier burden on the storytelling to compensate for that. My wife loved the movie by the way.

So I didn't think I was going to make a picture of this Captain Marvel but the muse whispers in your ear and you can't help but to listen. I came up with the composition very quickly and began finding my reference and frankensteining my pose for the protagonist. As my previous few pictures, I employed the drawing heavy style for this picture and really pushed how much I could do with just a black and white drawing on a grey surface before adding color. I really loved how it held together on it's own! The coloring went a bit faster than the last one and I would imagine it will continue to get faster the more comfortable I get with it. I really love how this turned out. Curious to find out how people will respond to it as shows when I have it. We will see.


And since I mentioned it, here is the b/w version.
