MAKING A MARK: Jiuge

Every week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist a little brag-space right here on IADW. This week, it's the turn of Jiuge - a female American artist, whose way with digital art is as breathtaking as it is colourful. In fact, she's produced one of the best Power Girl shots I've ever seen. Check it out;

And you thought P.G could only sell an image from the front. Shame on you. Strong, yet soft in all the right ways, this piece screams with colour - just look at that sunrise! And of course if you are going to do the ladies of the DCU, you can't forget Poison Ivy...

Making the insane attractive has to be an art-form in itself. While the peacock feathers in the hair are a wicked touch, when woman have more clothes on their arms then they do the rest of their bodies, you generally know there's trouble ahead.

Speaking of a head for trouble, how about Ra's Al Ghul and his seductive daughter Talia?

While Ra's was her first time "drawing old people", DC need a bat-book done in this ladies style. It would fly off the stands looking this sharp!

  3. So that is why PowerGirl wears a cape!
    Poyson Ivy is absolutely amazing in that explosion of colour.
    And yes, the lady can draw old people. Ra's flawless.

  5. Thanks for the great comments folks - I am really glad this one went down so well - I think her work is fantastic!

    Glad to have you dropping into IADW Pensol!

    Satana is a different choice Dave - I'd love to see her do Cloak and Dagger but seems from her portfolio she's definitely a DC girl. Especially for Jason Todd.

  6. Okay, I feel a bit sorry for Power Girl. That has to be uncomfortable. Still a beautiful picture though. I want that dress she has on Talia. That is stunning. The girl knows design and composition too.

    Thanks, Dan! This is a great site that I stumbled onto while searching for Thor knows what (actually I think that might have been it - Thor). As an artist myself I love being inspired by the work of others!

  8. Likewise Pensol - seeing how others bring their personal style into illustration is my biggest buzz so hope you stick around!
