Ok, I may soon be known on here as the toughest critic of Captain Americas on Deviant Art. I have collected everything about him over the years and know details others miss, even in his essence and personality. I'm not sure how much you know about Cap but... you NAILED IT! Awesome, awesome, AWESOME!! I'm no art critic; those comments were made already and I can see some of them. But as far as Steve Rogers, the original Cap, you blended in the idea of a Soldier very well; kind of a Nick Fury scruff. Why not? He's a soldier, a fighter and I doubt super soldier serum would inhibit facial hair growth, might even encourage it. This is HOT, and I mean I can feel the heat of the flames dude! Wonderful work. Tweak what the artists on here said but keep the Cap you made. You used his original shield which was not made of adamantium (sp?) so it could get damaged. Did you realize that cause you got it right. One of my favorite Caps EVER!

I see, I was just asking because Im sort of at this crossroads now where everything I've learned has been based on gradients but im starting to see the value of not using them. Your style of shading is pretty close to what I've been trying to strive for so I was just curious.
Well I use them to after I have painted something, or to add a quick shading to something. But as for actually painting with them i tend to do alot more workout them, but still in comparison to most people i use them alot.
I don't think it's a huge issue, but there's something just slightly off about the combination or perspective and proportion. It's a tiny issue with what is otherwise a fantastically well done piece, one better than anything I've yet done.
dude, it's very hard. there isn't much for the state of Michigan to give, either. I'm am still without photoshop after a computer crash so I can't even find a way to make promotional postcards or anything.
