Mighty Avengers

(click image to enlarge)

Here's a painting I did of the Mighty Avengers that was used as a background element for Tony (Iron Man) Stark's press conference in Captain America #27. I tried to keep it sort of simplified and muted so it would not compete with the foreground elements of the page, which were done as traditional line art. After it was pasted in, our colorist Frank D'Armata lightened it and softened the focus a bit more to integrate it into the colored page.

Did you paint it by "hand" - oils, acrylic, etc - or with Painter? In either case, it looks pretty bad ass.

Thanks. It was done in Photoshop 7.

Thanks for showing that full Mighty Avengers image. When reading the Cap issue, I had wondered if Frank had used a "borrowed" image for that background (Like when Jimmy Cheung-drawn faces showed up on viewscreens of Cho's Mighty Avengers #1) but I love the extra work you did just for a press conference backdrop!
