MAKING A 'deviantART' MARK THIS WEEK: Christopher Uminga

Every week Making A Mark features one of the insanely talented artistic folk, currently living up large on the pages of Selection is simple; search for a visual character, pick the greatest visual, then give it's maker a little brag spot right here on IADW.

Character: Robin Artist: Christopher Uminga, aka dA's UMINGA

Describing his portfolio as a place where the monsters in his head get let out to play, Christopher uses mainly watercolour (with a few digital pieces here and there), to take a Tim Burton meets Humberto Ramos look at the people around him, his own 'monsters' and the heroes and villains of pop culture. 

To see how his lil' zombie-ish style handles the likes of everyone from Bobba Fet to Wonder Woman, visit Uminga's deviantART page or his own personal website at


  1. I love that style of art. It looks like jumped out fresh from the pages of a Juxtapoz magazine.

    Great spotting Dan!

  2. Thanks Jonny - I thought it was pretty stylised too!

  3. Love that Cap picture with the amazing weathering job.

  4. Yeah that's my fav too - I'm not a fan of 'cutsey' versions of heroes, but these Tim Burton-ish designs are really something else!
