MAKING A MARK: Wayne Nichols

Every three weeks Making A Mark features one of the insanely talented artistic folk, currently living up large on the pages of deviantART.com. Selection is simple; search for a character who always takes a great pic, find the best, then shove it's maker under the IADW spotlight.

Character: Darth Vader Artist: Wayne Nichols, deviantART's FlowComa

Talk about 'Flame On!' - from Gold Coast beaches, to the red sands of Ayers Rock, 'Ozzy' is known for 'hot'. Now New Zealand's biggest neighbours can add another item to that list; the art skills of Brisbane based illustrator, Wayne Nichols.

With a few jobs for Marvel and Dark Horse already under his belt, this guy isn't exactly a rookie, but as his dA gallery shows the stronger his own style becomes, the more heat Nichols generates. The Human Torch sketch below, is one of the best I have seen - he actually looks like a man on fire!

Check out Radical Publishing to see some of his latest professional work, deviantART, or Wayne's personal website.
