Happy Yuletart, Tielan!

Title: Steampunk Maria Hill/Steve Rogers
By: RatCreature
For: Tielan
Media Used: Ink
Rating: All Audiences
Fandom(s): Marvel Cinematic Universe
Warnings: None
Summary: Steve and Maria on mission in a Steampunk universe.
Notes: For Captain America's AU outfit I referenced bits from Ryan Meinerding's First Avenger concept art and an American WWI uniform, rather than trying to come up with a Steampunk superhero costume for Steve or dressing him into something more Victorian. I couldn't quite see him as a gentleman adventurer or such.

That's awesome I love it! I think your costume choice for Steve works - it's got a hint of steampunk about it while remaining in character. And Maria looks badass. :) I really like the crisp lines and the subtle shading, as well as the sense of movement/action esp in Steve. Gorgeous! :)
ratcreature: Thank you! (thanks)

Thank you! I didn't have time to color it as I wanted to do originally, so I'm glad to hear it works for you with just the lineart and the little bit of shading.

Lovely! The costumes are great, very fitting for the characters and the steampunk atmosphere. And I love the attention you've paid to little details like the trim on Maria's dress and the straps on Steve's helmet. Very nice.

Oh wow! Such detail! The WWI uniform looks great, and I love Maria's expression and the way she's handling her weapon.

Thank you so very much for this lovely gift!
ratcreature: pleased (pleased)

This is terrific! I love the detailed WWI era costuming and the steampunk touches of Maria's backpack and blunderbuss. I especially love that she's still got her earpiece!

Weird gun design additions are the easiest to give a steampunk touch, and I figured since the earliest wireless signal stuff was actually invented in the 1880s in reality, a steampunk kind of universe could have advanced the tech to something usable in small comms, steam-based or not. I'm glad that worked for you.

Lovely drawing and they look seriously badass. Gaiters!

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. I think technically Steve's legwear are puttees rather than gaiters, because they are wrapped strips, at least that's what these are called in all the references. Though maybe they count as a subclass of gaiters...

Not my fandom at all but this is really cool. I've got a great weakness for steampunk art.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I like steampunk because you can be decorative and whimsical yet futuristic at the same time, unlike more minimalist, sleek SF styles, where everybody wears unisex jumpsuits in Bauhaus style spaceships. Not that jumpsuits don't have their nice points, especially the skin-tight type, heh.

Great take on steampunk, or should I say dieselpunk, love it! Also the perspective is very dynamic.

Thank you! I guess, Steve is more dieselpunk with the WWI era inspired design and Maria more steampunk...

I agree with absolutely everyone that the costume choices are wonderful!
I like the posing as well. It gives off the feeling of them being on the alert during a mission. I feel their trust through them facing different directions.
ratcreature: Thank you! (thanks)

[personal profile] ratcreature 2013-12-20 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you! I'm glad you like the pose. I wanted to show them having each other's back as partners, so I'm happy that came across.

This is fantastic! They both look so dashing! And the costume details ... soooo gorgeous!

Thank you! I'm glad you like the costumes. Drawing clothes doesn't come easy to me.
