Here is a new painting which made its premiere at the San Diego Comic-Con this past month. A pleasure to tackle, as Captain America has been a favorite of mine from deep in the past. I sought to portray the Captain as the hero I remember ...
and loved, helping the common guy get through the worst of times. We need to see our heroes, whom ever they are, in this type of action more often...

Very nicely done! I love the palette you went with. It has a sort of Renaissance/realistic feel to it despite being based on a Marvel Comics character.
