MARVEL 80th Anniversary: "Bucky Barnes"
After the confrontation with Steve Rogers in the silver age, he came back to his senses and became a member of The Avengers.
A popular Marvel superhero character. In the modern age, he teamed up with the new Captain America – Falcon (Steve Roger’s replacement). Now they are due to the New Captain America and the Winter Soldier.
Celebrating MARVEL’s 80th anniversary I made him in his first appearance costume in the year 1941.
I wanted this first Artist Proof card to be a lot more special than what I made for the regular sketch cards.
Since I had 45 cards of practice from the regular sketch card, I gained some confidence and I do have time to think about what to do with my drawing. A simple striking pose will do. Also, I made my shades into lines as an experiment. It did turn out pretty good.
Work In Progress
I have 2 Artist proof cards with the labeled “Bucky” in this project Upperdeck MARVEL’s 80th Anniversary.
Base on the concept of the Winter Soldier drawn with the idea of wind. I wanted a standing pose that is striking with a wind effect. I put highlights to give an impression of a nice Artist Proof.
My work is done from pencil sketches to give the initial idea and proportions. Followed by the ink drawing for the shadowing and line detail.
My First Artist Proof Sketch Card of Buck Barnes finished!
You can watch my entire work progress at this video.
It took me 4-5 hours to draw this character.
