Captain Britain 40th Costume Art by Mark Farbrother

Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Captain Britain. This is a piece of art I did for 'Avengers UK', a fan based free Facebook comic. This piece is actually three pieces of A3 paper joined together to make one continuous piece of art showcasing every major Captain Britain uniform/costume. I used Alan Davis' original omnibus art as a base and adapted each piece to showcase each costume, with the exception of the MI:13 one drawn by Stuart Immonen.

Drawn on A3 (x3) Daler Rowney 300gsm Aquafine smooth watercolour paper, using Uni-Pin Fine line pens 0.05 - 0.8, Winsor & Newton Black Drawing Ink, and a white Signo Gel pen.

  1. Cheers Steve. There's room for two more costumes. There have been others, such as 'Inferno' but they were fleeting, and a little silly, so I decided to stick to the ones that were iconic, and represented the major phases of Captain Britain.

  2. Haha yeah, the 'night mode' neon light strip one was a bit lame as well.
