SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS QB Colin Kaepernick

It's been a while since I've posted anything, or even done any art that wasn't for a client or for work so this was a nice relaxing painting to do. I havent painted in so long, and yes I know it's digital but the feeling of painting, I havent done because my job is mostly flat cartoony figures. So in honor of the Forty Niners first game, and home opener, I wanted to paint a 49er.

Now anyone who has spoken to me before on my opinions on Colin Kaepernick have never been too high ever since he became the 49ers starting qb. Don't get me wrong I think the guy is a phenomenal athlete, but because of my background in coaching football, something irked me about superb athletes in a position where you have to be smarter than just a playmaker.
With that said, HE IS THE STARTER of my team, therefore, as a fan (who likes to be aware and not follow blindly) I will be hopeful for 49ers to have a good season behind their QB. He is now one of the veterans and leaders of the team with so many leaving this past offseason that it is truly his time to shine and step it up. Good Like Kaep, and bring that Lombardi Trophy Home.

So I watched Disney Pixar's Inside Out this weekend... and I have to say... I LOVED IT!!! It has to be the top movie I watched this year and already one of the top Pixar if not THE top pixar film. It definitely after one watch has made my top animated films list. Just such a complete story and smart story.... so here's whats inside my head. Maybe I'll do a sketch of them on their console at some point because it's just too awesome not to pass up.

AVENGERS! Wanda Maximoff - Scarlet Witch

Hey Guys,

sorry it took awhile, been busy the past week. Just came back from disneyland... bummed that the 60th anniversary stuff wasn't up. But I will definitely post some photos of disneyland that I liked. But I digress, here is the next Avengers member the sister of Pietro and a MUTANT not this "enhanced" bs. Wanda Maximoff The Scarlet Witch. She's pretty much an OP character in the comics so they dumbed her down a lot in the MCU but hey, still loved the movie.
I didn't want to go with her sexy outfit so I did the dress with a headband rather than a mask/crown. I also didnt want too much red so I colored her gloves black and her boots to balance it out. I had so much trouble drawing this, maybe because she's female. I have to draw more females :D

I had so many problems with this character. The initial sketch.... the proportions, at one point the arm length was a head and a half long. (which is completely wrong) Her torso was really squashed at one point, and the legs looked JLO booty huge. I have no idea what was going on. But I'm glad I got it to a finish. Otherwise I would've gone nuts trying to fix it.

AVENGERS! Quicksilver Pietro Maximoff

Alright next up. Pietro Maximoff... also known to most as Magnetos Son, twin brother to Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), and most of all QUICKSILVER! Now since these were made to honor the move that came out last week I gotta say one thing and no it's not a spoiler for you guys who havent watched the movie but... "Didnt see that coming!"
I liked the look they did with quick silver in the movie so I sort of took pieces from the ultimate version and his original costume with a little idea from the movie version. I had so much trouble getting the run gesture down. I'm not even sure if I got a good run pose down. But at least I got it to a finish. Hope you like.
Final Color. I didn't want to go all powdered blue so I did what they did similar to the movie and made him have darker pants.

 Took me so many revisions just to get the pose right. 
Check out this initial sketch. I completely twisted and contorted the body but something just didn't feel right even though the pose looked dynamic. I probably broke his spine in this pose.

AVENGERS! Natasha Romanoff (Romanova) Black Widow

Next up is Hawkeye's partner in crime (or Shield) The assassin known as Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff or Natalia Romanova.

I had a little difficulty doing this drawing. I havent drawn women in awhile and a bunch of initial sketches she looked either too masculine or really skinny. If you look at the sketch at the bottom she's way too petite she feels like a 15-16 year old. Hopefully I will do more female drawings or female superheroes in the future to fix the issues I had with this. But I definitely had fun working on this drawing. I wanted to leave the leather look in the comics because I wanted to attempt that kind of texture, rather than a matte looking Kevlar suit. Enjoy!

she kind of reminds me of the actress that played Jean Grey in the first X-Men live action film. It might have been an accident but I wanted her to be thin and stealth like.

AVENGERS!!! Hawkeye

Ok, so I finally saw Avengers today and loved it!!! Lived up to it's hype and moves pretty darn fast for a 2 and half hour movie. Definitely would love to check out the directors 3 hr cut of the film. So I would like finish the team that was featured in the movie. So starting off the supporting cast (to the main four) Clint Barton. I wanted to stay true to the original comic costume with some of the updated costume ideas with the current one from the movie. The marvel cinematic universe doesn't really delve into the idea that all these heroes have "secret identities". So a lot of the heroes in the movies have no masks. But MASKS ARE COOL.
