MAKING A MARK: Lorena Carvalho - The Lady Showing How DC's Ladies Should Be Treated

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Lorena Carvalho, a Spanish illustrator who bucks the trend by creating iconic images of DC's top female creations, without having them bare all for the camera. Don't think it can be done? Check these out...

For a relatively new character Harley Quinn sure has one massive fanbase. Still, I've rarely seen her rendered as playful as she is here. Wonder Woman beside her is based on the thought of the character being brought to life by actress Megan Fox.

While it's sad the rebooted Justice League didn't put Black Canary back in as a founder of earth's premiere super team, this picture of the screaming siren is timeless! As for Death, Lorena has created a broche with this image in it. If you would like to order one for yourself, see the link at the end of this post. Between here and there though...

Where would the DC lassies be without Zatanna? Eht CD esrevinu t'ndluow eb eht emas tuohtiw reh liat dna pot tah - and Lorena sure proves that here!

For broches, Barbara Gordon, Duela Dent and a whole lot more, visit Carvalho's online gallery right after the jump!

    1. Hey Lorena, welcome to IADW and thanks for the comments, glad you liked what you saw!

      Your work is stunning and I hope more folks check out your portfolio in full. look forward to seeing what art you create next!

  2. Let me add that I also enjoy Lorena's work, and that if she doesn't get hired by DC this year or next, a crime against humanity has indeed been committed!

  3. Thanks Dale - we can only hope! Imagine her on a issue of Birds of Prey!
