Why this piece is awesome: It's a marvellous strong portrait of Diana on the horse, from near the end of the movie, wrapped in a fur-trimmed cloak and looking every inch the warrior princess. Also I love the colours.

Why this piece is awesome: Amazing, amazing artwork and likeness. This is supposed to be before they attached his arm, and we almost never get to see him like this, before he really became the Winter Soldier. He looks so terribly vulnerable - it's a heartrending piece. I don't usually rec more than one artwork by the same artist in a set, so I'll just point you to this follow-up piece by the same artist, for a happier Bucky, post-recovery. Also note the graffiti on his arm. :)

Why this piece is awesome: I love artworks of Steve as an artist, and this is excellent. Good likeness, and I love the colour contrast with the pic in grayscale and only the actual paint smears in colour. His eye's perfectly trained on us, so it seems like he's painting our portrait as we look at the art. Very nicely done.

Why this piece is awesome: This is an illustration for a story - sadly only in Russian. Wish I could read it as this is a delightful pic of a sad-looking and bruised post-serum Steve being comforted by 4 big fluffy white dogs, possibly Samoyeds if the comment below with this link is correct. Adorable floofs comforting Steve!

Why this piece is awesome: When I saw this and realized we were on the last day of open reccing, I just had to post it. It's a timely and painful portrait of Kamala Khan reacting to the news of last weekend's U.S. immigration ban. (For those who don't follow Ms. Marvel: Kamala is both a superhero and an American Muslim teenager.) This picture highlights how, despite her powers, Kamala is first and foremost an ordinary person making her way in the world, which I think is one of the great strengths of the Ms. Marvel comics. Kamala's grief is palpable, made all the more so by the contrast with the patriotic, heroic images scattered around her room.

Why this piece is awesome: This artist has a really dynamic style with the hashed lines and messy, erratic markings. It gives a real sense of action to the piece that is perfect for Sam Wilson mid-flight. Also, I love how the wings coupled with circular graphic "halo" behind his head gives the impression of an avenging angel.
