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 Candra - a Russian illustrator, proving on the other side of the former 'Iron Curtain' is not only a thriving artistic culture, but an amazing amount of detail and sense of colour, right in her very own works..
I loved Marc Silvestri's redesigned Phoenix outfit in the pages of Grant Morrison's New X-Men run - so it's great I'm not alone! A massive departure from Jean's usual wardrobe, it showed how liberated the Phoenix Force made her. Like Sandy from Grease in a more 'obliterate the earth' kinda way.
While Kory appears to like keeping her hands on titans of her own, this piece really does smack the air from your lungs. After a few years as DC's resident nomad, I'm glad Starfire will be getting some decent exposure in DC's 52 title relaunch this September.
For more of Candra's intimate artworks, simply click the jump. Please note; as you can tell Candra has a knack for slash fan fiction. So if even saltier images of tender moments between Archangel and Iceman, or M.J and The Black Cat aren't your thing, you might want to just park up here at IADW.
