Captain America vs. Hydra!

In between editorial illustration assignments, I like to take a break and draw some superheroes. I find it's a great way to loosen up and work out aggression. I painted this one of Captain America in action against those nasty baddies from Hydra (google them if you don't know who they are) the other night for fun. I always seem to enjoy drawing Cap. This is also one of several new paintings I'll be taking with me to sell at the Fan Expo comic-con in Toronto in about a month.

This one was painted fairly large, about 11" x 16", in gouache and ink on watercolour paper. Since it was done in gouache, it needed no pshop cleanup. If you're interested, you can check out my pencil sketch for it below:
