Captain America Illustration: The First Avenger

This painting was inspired by the last poster from the movie and the artist Dyna Moe from Mad Men fame. My goal was to pay homage to her style. Also I wanted the three paintings to reflect different styles. This was definitely more difficult than I imagined. Not only did I have to turn the actors into caricatures but I had to fit them all on the iPad screen. There are some differences in my painting and the movie poster but I felt it was necessary. Capturing the essence of the period and the movie was more important than being exact.
