Being an illustrator the rule is same for everything else you do, if you want to get better you have to practice, practice, practice. So with the theatrical release of Captain America coming soon, I thought it would be a good exercise to see if I could re-invent one of the worst (and this is just my opinion) super hero emblems ever. I wanted to take Captain Midnight's chest shield, and see if I could make it look like a cool, modern, summer movie poster. If you're not familiar with Capt. Midnight's look he wears a clock with wings that signifies midnight with both hands pointing to the 12 o'clock position sown to his long, and very manly underwear.
This is what I did with it.
