GREAT PIECE...

The emotion shown on Cap's face is outstanding.  Hell, the emotion shown on Union Jack's is impressive.  "Acting" with pencils seems to be a lost art far too often nowadays.

What a great shot.  I really like these simpler commissions.  All three characters reactions are very powerfully done. 

By "simpler" I merely mean less characters  and "micro action" vs. "macro action".

I like the look of pencils-only drawings! I love the inked stuff just as much, but in a different way, if that makes sense.

Very cool!

Ah, but is it really simpler? To me, it's every bit as detailed as any other commission (other than character shots with no backgrounds).

Although inked commissions are sweet as hell, JB's pencils are somehow sweeter!

You never cease to take our breath away with these commissions.
