Found this during Comic Con and it’s maybe some of the weirdest art I’ve seen. Captain America appears to be having some kind of seizure while surfing a torpedo and Namor looks like he’s not-so-secretly supporting a different side than Cap and Torch.

Art tip : Filing pencils
You know how when you get a set of pencils straight from the box they have such perfectly sharp points?
How that is done is when the pencils are manufactured they are rolled over a sandpaper like surface at a high speed. This sands the wood and the lead that gives you the perfect tip.
Now some pencils like : pastel pencils, oil pencils and charcoal pencils you cannot sharpen by hand or by machine. The usual way is with a knife/blade. But you always e...nd up making a giant tip (cos its fun to shave off the wood) which breaks really soon, or you make a terrible square tip or worst it just breaks.
Best tip: buy a pack of nail files. Yes. Boys, ask your sisters/mums. Get the ones that are disposable. They are usually sandpaper stuck on board strips. Dont get the metal ones.
Use them for filing down pencils. Especially delicate ones. You might get lots of lead caked in the file but just use an old paintbrush or tooth brush and rub it off. It should last pretty long. This gives you a great tip while not wasting lead like you would sharpening with a blade!
I got a pack of 12 board nail files for Rs.70 from a salon supply store. You might find them in your fancy stores.
