Captain America - Duty by DonatoArts Captain America - Duty by DonatoArts
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...

Captain America: Duty

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.

Very well done, on all counts, not just those involving the actual painting; but then, that is why this is a "master"piece. Thank you.
"We need to see our heroes, whom ever they are, in this type of action more often..."
Yes, we do.

Looks fantastic! There's something about the old WWII-set comics that made them more interesting than just watching a bunch of men in tights fighting each other.
