Captain and Mary Marvel

I love this character. Mike Kunkel's "Billy Batson and The Majic of Shazam" has sparked my interest in Cap. I recently read Jeff Smith's "Captain Marvel and The Society of Evil", so now I am officially hooked on the character. As a kid I would always pretend that I could change into a super hero, and fly around the house like a wild man. I've launched myself face first off the couch, and much to my brothers dismay, a flight of stairs or two. Hey, he's the one that told me to do it. Turns out I can't fly, and thank God my brother can catch.

Now that I have a daughter of my own I can really appreciate Caps little sister, Mary Marvel. She reminds me of my little girl. She's fearless, full of spunk and constantly driving her older brother crazy. Yup sounds just like my little buggers. So I did this pic as a tribute to my fearless little Maggie Marvel and her big brother Captain Michael Marvel.

I posted the first rough sketch, and then final that I did in colored pencils. In the next few months I want to start dabbling with the digital painting. Let me know what you think. Hope you like it. Take care.

Here is another character concept for my next project. It's a quick pencil sketch. Still trying to work this one out in my head. I should have a few more posts in the next couple of days, been a little busy. Let me know what you think.
