Captain America

He's a bit late for Project Rooftop, but I tried. I'm going to send him anyway and see what happens. I would have liked to have spent more time developing a sweet action pose, but alas, time did not permit me to...spend more...um...time. I didn't have any great ideas or concepts so I just toned down the red, white and blue theme and gave him a more portable laser forcefieldy shield.

Nice! I love how, even when all GI'ed out, he's still so smiley!

What's the physical part of the holo-shield do?

Lighthouse Pilot said...

Thanks! The smile was just for the little sketch, but I liked it and kept it when I enlarged it.

In the plus column the physical part of the shield projects the holo-shield and it can spin the holo-shield part like a laser saw. It slices, dices and juliennes! In the minus column it's not as strong as his previous shield and pretty difficult to hurl at people. Beyond that I hadn't given it much thought. Got any cool ideas?

I just giggled at the thought of the letter "A" on his forehead changing from "A" to "B" to "C" as each step of the shield's function was revealed. Just a thought, though... its probably a little unorthodox for Captain America.

Very cool. Like the combo of military look with the super-hero.

This is obviously a more practical approach to the suit design, so I shall not gripe about the lack of helmet wings.

I like it though, I'm surprised that even with the addition of so much green, it doesn't overwhelm or take away from the red, white and blue.

I like the way the shield clips on too, it reminds me of all those cool 80's toys that did stuff.

I like that he looks so happy, and I love his shield. Great idea. The ribbed army shirt is also a great design choice, but I have to say, my only tiny gripe... the bag.

probably the best integration of camo green to captain america uniform that I've seen. so hard to pull off, but you did. also in love with the backback he appears to be wearing attached to the breastplate. It's a shame this didn't make it in.
