The Captain America Project: 20 artists, 20 drawings of Captain America on one page.
#12: Adam Hughes (Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan, Cover Run)
Hi folks! I just got back from an amazing vacation in Italy, hence the lack of posts the last few weeks. I have a few Italy related posts in the pipeline, but I figured the best way to get back in the swing of things on Fante’s Inferno was with a post on the Captain America Project.
The twelfth spot on my Captain America jam page belongs to the amazing Adam Hughes. I’ve seen him at the New York comic conventions over the years and I never get tired of watching him draw. He was drawing quick sketches at the 2010 New York Comic Con in return for donations to a charity he was raising funds for and I was fortunate to get a Captain America head sketch.
I really like that the pencil lines are still visible underneath the inks. It’s amazing how much strength Hughes was able to capture in Cap’s expression with only a few lines.
