Ye Olde Avengers by steven-donegani Ye Olde Avengers by steven-donegani
FULL-SIZE PLEASE!

My Submission for Round 1 of the big tourney going on at :iconbattle-artist:

Theme: Medieval Avengers

Captain America: the valiant knight with sword and trusty shield.

The Iron Man: half man, half machine due to an accident during an experiment with magic.

Thor: the mightiest wizard of all thanks to his staff Mjonir.

This was the most interesting/time consuming piece I've ever done.

approx 15 hours.

Updated: Fixed Caps fat face and changed the colours a bit.

it's awesome, i wish you had done more characters though. hulk could've been an ogre looming in the background, and then the faithful archer hawkeye.

Um, probably Thor must still retain his hammer, because:
1) No hammer means not Thor
2) It's a part of his mythology too!

But the rest are all awesome, yeah if there's Hulk he can be some kind of Orc, Ogre, or Troll!

Iron Man can just be an Iron Knight, too.

But awesome piece of art, very inspiring!

This has nothing to do with any previous character establishment, it is a re imagining of these characters in a medieval time setting. I COULD have drawn Thor as he looks today and it would have fit in but where's the fun in that?

Who says he wouldn't use his powers to shrink the staffs length down (with magic of course, lol) and swing it like a hammer? ;)

:iconpencilsandnougats:
PencilsAndNougats Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011  Student General Artist
Well but basically one of Mjolnir's etymology translates as 'hammer' so...yeah. But since the staff still has a hammer-head, not a big deal then! ;)

Sorry, just a fan of Norse myth, lol. But you make everything still makes sense, so now it's easy.

his hammer is technically still there. it's just attached to the staff.

:iconpencilsandnougats:
PencilsAndNougats Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011  Student General Artist
Yup, I mean it's really a hammer, with no such long stick and additionally, he lists it there as a staff!

No big deal though. ;)

Thanks a lot! I had an idea of them fighting Hulk as an orc, but decided to go with a more heroic looking pose for time's sake!
