I was given some information from a fellow DA member regarding the original picture I used to make this pattern.
It was drawn by Bryan Hitch and it's the "Ultimate" version of Captain America. Ultimate versions had some costume changes. That explains no wings on his mask. And in the second version, he wore a helmet.
This is by far the best piece of cross-stitch I have ever done. The time I spent on this is probably 3-4 months. I stopped working on it many times but eventually finished it. The sunlight hitting the shield was a project of its own and it turned out so well.
