My take on Captain America and the Red Skull for a variant cover. Not much to say here except this: Drawing chain mail is a pain in my ass! I found this cool Versace dress that was made out of little metal disks and thought, 'Perfect!'. It had that regal look and was interesting at the same time because the pieces in the 'armor' were all of varying sizes. It seemed like the perfect solution to my chain mail dilemma, until I actually had to sit down and draw it. In the end, I think it looks a little messier than I'd like. I finally get why people draw all the little disks the same size. Story of my life. See, I have to walk backwards into knowledge for some reason. I will find a way to Forrest Gump my way through almost anything.... Still, what a cool assignment. PLUS, kudos to Marvel for being so cool about letting me draw Cap the way I wanted.
Favorite bit: Red Skull's right eye.
Least favorite bit: It's pretty much a tie between the chain mail and Red Skull's glove.
