Spider-Man in a Captain America costume would be very interesting, so lets see what people will come up with?
I have a design, but I can't come up with a color scheme. I do want webbing somewhere in there though.........
Anyone who wants to give that a shot is absolutely welcome.
Here's an uncolored prototype inspired by the Iron Spider and Cap's Marvel NOW! look:
@Gambit1024: How about that ?
I really loved your drawing so I gave it a try. I put some obvious colors, and I think it looks good. I didn't really know what to do with the spider symbol so I left it white for the moment, waiting for suggestions. I tried the red and white stripes (like, one leg white, one leg red and so on),but it didn't fit really well... Also, what's this belly button ? :p
BTW, the "American Arachnid" name you gave it is awesome !
@Dunners: Thanks! The helmet was the first thing I imagined. At first I thought of making it a full facemask, but that looked too Red Hood-looking.
@MadeinBangladesh: @PlasticBag: @Joygirl: Thanks guys :)
@Vermoot: That was the obvious color scheme I was going to put up, but... Idk. I feel it lacks something. I was thinking lots of black and red (similar to USAgent). Feels too Captain America and not enough Spider-Man, ya know? On the spider logo, I was thinking about doing an American flag print inside of it. Hard to explain, but that might be too complicated to put into such a small space. Idk what I want, lol. The button was supposed to fill the space for his not-utility belt, but now it just feels out of place and dumb, lol. Great coloring job, though :)
And yes, his name is American Arachnid, and I'm sticking with it :P
@Gambit1024: Yes some more original color scheme would be nice, but all I can think of looks too Iron Spider-y, or does not remind of the two characters enough. It's hard to think of something that looks like Captain America AND Spider-Man, but looks badass too ;)
Your design looks very Ultimate-like, idk why... Maybe because he looks so young :) Or because the Marvel NOW Cap costume looks like Ultimate cap. Anyways, it's great, I really like the idea !
@Vermoot: It's weird too, because Cap and Spidey have almost the exact same color scheme, lol. That's why I think something completely different, yet familiar (via USAgent) might be better for an amalgam like this. Originally I was going to use a more Venom-ish look, but the Iron Spider felt more..... patriotic? Idk, lol.
I was going for a younger Peter Parker, so that's probably why it looks Ultimate-like. The helmet design is also heavily inspired by the look Cap had in Ultimates 2. The one with his WWII helmet and the straps.
