Sketch Saturday: Captain Britain

Inspired by Mark's post about fracturing Captain Britain along a variety of creator lines, here's a brief marker muck about. My Captain Britain would be an athletic young man, full of grins. For his outfit, I'm leaning towards a fitted polyester body-suit, with an Adidas three stripe trim on the arms, legs and mask - a bit of a nod to modern UK sports casual loafing, and athlete aggrandising. Out of shot (ran out of paper), I'd have the pants hitting just over the knee, with bare calves and spiffy bright trabs on feet. Ethnicity was dictated by my lack of any credible skin-tone other than Copic's Warm Gray No.4, but I do dig the idea that he'd have a coffee and cream ambiguity.



Please forgive the big black line obscuring his right leg, I started drawing the appendage one way then decided it wasn't no good.

Wales didn't get a mention, but if I'd had more time, I was thinking of a Russell T Davies/Dylan Teague version of the character, but just gave up on it in mid-thought.

Heh. I meant Wales' lack of representation on the Union Flag. Your Welsh take does sound boss though.

Ha! Yeah, that'd be great Mal.
