11" x 17" illustration of Captain America and Puck vs. Baron Blood & Golgotha, no backgrounds.  The details are:

- Portrait orientation

- a heated battle with none of the combatants having an advantage

- Please have the villains concentrating on Captain America, and a smiling Puck bouncing off a villain of your discretion

Please depict Captain America wielding his shield in an offensive maneuver and Golgotha firing his energy gauntlet

My head would explode having to deal with all that direction in one image....

But you pulled it off nicely!

Captain America vs Baron Blood conjures all kinds of good memories. Throwing in Puck adds to the fun.

This is a bit more "scripting" than I normally accept, but I liked the combination of characters.

I love the decision to have the characters lined up coming towards the viewer like that.  Incredible depiction of depth.  All four figures look great!

Crazy! I love the camera angle on this. The description lends itself to a horizontal layout, but having the action directed at the viewer is just another level of complexity.

Nice!  I just reread your ALPHA FLIGHT run, so it's fun to see a freshly minted Puck!

WOW! So many "little" (just a way of speaking) things that make for a fantastic image: the depiction of the energy bolt and of the liquid in Golgotha's head, the angle of Puck's arrival, the way that Cap looks like he's still winning while he's bracing for impact and has a bad guy on his back, the angle of Cap's body also showing the impact of the bad guy firing on him, and so on...

I'm not familiar with the villains but their uniforms and associations with those heroes make for a great visual image.

That's a great piece!

Cap looks like he is just having a fat time regardless of the opposition, and that's what makes this a great piece. Just a whole lotta fun going on here!

The line weight on Cap's left foot/leg is so slender and elegant, yet, there's no doubt of its placement due to perfect anatomical correlation. I would have completely ham-fisted that portion with a big fat outline due to lack of confidence. 

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

Baron Blood is one of those characters that my mind incorrectly tells me at first that you designed him (Iron Fist is another). Something about the costume design really plays to your strengths.

Nice! I love Caps' positioning with his shield. Nice touch with the little bit of ground you threw in, too.

AWESOME!!! Captain America and Puck don't seem at all worried, so I figure the villains are about to lose any second after the action in that picture.

The Cap face/figure is especially wonderful  - he appears to be enjoying the battle along the way, a fun contrast to everyone else's intensity.

While I always love seeing Puck again, I have to claim the little water line at the top of Golgotha's helmet as my favorite thing about this commission!

Sigh. I love Cap's gloves and boots. You draw them so well!

Oh, and the rest of the commission is great, too! But my eyes are
drawn to those perfect gloves & boots...

Golgotha...one of the greatest name and visual design for a villain!

I love how the characters are interacting with each other.

How come you decided not to use Cap's shield in an offensive manner as the commissioner asked?

••

Suggest how, along with the other things asked for.

This is precisely why Jim and I encourage would-be customers not to overthink the piece. TRUST ME. If too much is asked for, something will invariably be left out in order to make the rest work.

Wow. You packed them guys in there. Awesome !
Looks like Baron Blood's about to break a tooth again.
Nice to see Golgatha. I'll tell you what, in another time and place
he may have gone down as one of those legendary villians.
