Cap vs Iron Man by ReillyBrown Cap vs Iron Man by ReillyBrown
This was an interesting commission. The guy wanted Captain America arm wrestling Iron Man, with masks off, while picking members for their individual teams. I showed that by having them arguing over trading cards, and each of the cards on the table have a picture of an Avenger on them (kind of hard to see at this size, but they're there!).

I normally don't take commissions at conventions that involve so much art direction, but this guy's been a good customer in the past and he's more interested in seeing my interpretation of the scenario than trying to get me to draw his own specific composition, as if he's trying to get me to do promo art for some pitch of his on the cheap (it happens).
It was a fun idea, and I think it turned out pretty well.

I love Steve's expression of "childlike stubornness", the same innocent willpower that allows him to win any battle.

I see in Tony a face like "why am I not winning already?".

Of course, I love Cap better than Iron Man, but both look great here.

I'm not sure which is stronger: my happy feelings for this, because Captain America, and because Iron Man, and because gorgeous artwork - or my heartbreak, because Civil War. :( Ah, well. Stunning anyway! I love their expressions most of all - Steve's Stubborn Jaw, ahaha, and the tiny wing chillin' off the edge of his cowl!

Oh this is absolutely fantastic! I'm so glad you took the commission. It's a fun idea and your interpretation of it is terrific!

I love Steve's expression especially. It's like you know there is no way in all hell he intends to loose this one!

Really great!

Tony looks like he's about to start swinging :) I see...Scarlet Witch and possibly Wasp? I avoided the whole Civil War event (except when it bled over into Cable & Deadpool), but probably would have picked it up if every disagreement was settled with arm wrestling ;)

Awesome. But is the Suit on or off? Because if it is on, I bet Cap wouldn't stand a chance.

But if the suit is off then Tony wouldn't stand a chance, at all. (Actually I think the armor would complicate things more for him)


See? We have a problem.

This is excellent! (I'm biased for Iron Man to win, but Steve could beat Tony easily without any tech.)
Their expressions are perfect, as is the Iron Man suit! Brilliant, again!
