Hey everybody, I’m back this week with one more Marvel Cinematic Universe piece before the end of 2015.

This is a digital rendering I did in my free time of what I think an MCU version of U.S.Agent should look like. I wanted to push that “black ops Captain America” button really hard, so I started by taking one of the concept art pieces from Captain America: Winter Solider and painting over the top of it. Besides the Uzi, I gave his silhouette a little more bulk in the shoulders and helmet, as well as a backpack with a pull strap on the top. I wanted something more tactical then Cap, but with all the classic lines still.

I love drawing the MCU panel style costumes. The first few passes aren’t anything too special, but I love going in and adding all the detail in the later stages of drawing it up. Even after I was done painting on this guy I was still adding seam lines and armor detail. I really enjoy that part of the work. If you look closely, there are 5 different fabric textures on this costume (not including hard armor parts).

As for where I think U.S.Agent might fit in with the MCU? I think he’d be a great fit on a show like Agents of Shield or the upcoming spin off Marvel’s Most Wanted. I’m not sure he’d be a good fit for the films (I could be wrong), and it seems to me that the Netflix series are pretty comfortable sticking to NYC for a setting.

As always let me know what you think either in the comments below or on social media. Don’t forget to follow Troy McKie – Freelance Designer on Facebook. And as always, thanks for looking!
