This fan art of Captain America by jiuge was done a couple of years ago but it's new to me.
The good Captain is an obvious subject for a July 4th piece and this one certainly amps up the patriotic symbolism with the flag and eagle in the background too. It's well composed, but above all it's really well textured, from the material that Cap is wearing to the metallic sheen of his indestructible shield. Throwing in the "Buy War Bonds" text at the top fits in with Captain America's war time origins too.
