With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility, Comes Great Tears (Even Heroes Cry) by Khaitama D. Sun

Paintings Share


Medium: Acrylic Playnting on canvas

Part of my Marvel Heroes Tribute series, I created this piece to bring attention to the emotional aspects that heroes go through as many place them on a pedestal but forget they are human too. They feel the same highs and lows as we do. They cry in secrecy as they must put up a strong front to the public but what weakness is there to crying? What weakness is there in feeling vulnerable? I think it’s quite the opposite. For only the greatest of heroes are the ones who are most vulnerable. They are the ones who feel the most and that is why every day and every night they put on their mask to save the world. Yet despite their mask their emotions still reverberate for those who are aware. Created rhythmically with only drumsticks via Playnting.
