Kris Anka cuts loose with amazing Captain America illustration
Kris Anka stays pretty busy as one of the regular rotating artists of Uncanny X-Men, but you want to see him take a spin on another of Marvel’s marquee franchises, look no further than his depiction of the Sentinel of Liberty and his supporting cast from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Although Anka debuted the artwork only last week on his blog, it was produced a few years ago and never released. He explained it was intended to accompany Sideshow Collectibles’ Captain America Premium Format statue, but it wasn’t approved in time to be included in the packaging.
Anka’s style has evolved much since this piece was created, but it’s always interesting to see an artist experimenting with different subject matter — especially considering his interest in Captain America and the Winter Soldier. Who knows, maybe one day Anka will have a comics stint with the two characters.
