MAKING A MARK: Vandrell

Every Sunday, 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 visual character, pick the greatest visual, then give it's maker a little brag spot right here on IADW.


Donna Troy by Daniel Vandrell Oduber aka dA's Vandrell

As one of the billion fans of the Perez/Wolfman New Teen Titans, I'll always have a place for Donna Troy - especially in her red pyjamas. I know she's left the name Wonder Girl behind, but that is still a powerful getup for a young lady to fight crime in, especially as well-rendered as Spanish artist Daniel Vandrell Oduber has done there.

And if you think that is hot, check these out...

In amongst Vandrell's amazing paint and airbrush portfolio, there is an ocean of Masters of The Universe sketches. All brilliantly done, yet with his own stylised take on each - the 'speed-paints' are fit for framing. 

Now, he is concentrating on female based sci-fi works, and as Taki would suggest (above right) putting his own slant on the characters from the video game smash Soul Calibur

To keep a track on all Vendrell's got in the pipeline, visit him at his deviant ART page, or even right here on blogger.

  1. WOW! . . . and that's pretty much what my reaction was when I saw this! I've been keen to Donna Troy since the star-spangled battle armor with the short haircut that Perez introduced us to way back when.

    While I'm not necessarily keen on the stripper-positioning of the stars, the overall composition and attitude of the piece is phenomenal!

    Nice catch, Dan!

    And I did, "Read more".

  2. Thanks Doug - glad you liked the piece as much as I did!

    I wasn't sure about the stars either lol. The first fan-art I ever had published, in Previews, was of Donna Troy so it was good seeing another fans take on her.

    If you do take a stab at drawing her let me know!
