N.C. Wyeth is perhaps the most influential artist of his generation. His compositions, his uses of color, of movement, all of it is… It’s like something you don’t even realize you remember being amazed by as a little kid, but you find yourself drawn to recreating his imagery later on. Frank Frazetta, for example, took a lot of notes from N.C. Wyeth’s sense of drama and lighting techniques. Esad Ribic also stated to me at the NYCC several years ago that the Loki mini he painted was heavily influenced by Wyeth’s work (especially from “the Boy’s King Arthur” and “the Legends of Charlegmane”.)
Now that the DVD is out, I can finally share with you the end credits for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER film that I did the art for working with Sarofsky Design. My official credit in the film for it is: Illustrator/Concept Artist. Here, ART OF THE TITLE presents the sequence. I drew the images by hand. Working on the sequence with designer Sarofsky. And then my drawings were scanned, vectorized, and brought to life by a team of 3D animators at Sarofsky studios in Chicago. Then with the incredible music and type and editing… I’m very happy with this. You can watch the complete title sequence at the link.
New this week!
For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Sarofsky Corp. craft one of Marvel’s boldest title sequence efforts to date.
