MAKING A MARK: Thony Silas Dias de Aguiar - Brazil's Watercolour Wizard Strikes

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Thony Silas Dias de Aguiar, a Brazilian illustrator whose talent with the pencil let alone watercolour, has produced a tidal wave portfolio of powerful pieces.

Like the above, while I'm probably more of a fan of the earlier version of Supergirl, there can be no denying Barbara Gordon is the ultimate Batgirl. 'World's Finest' - certainly are here.

While Thony has recently pencilled work for Marvel's Amazing Spider-Man, he admits he's not the first person to say his favourite character is actually Wolverine. Me, I always feel Logan is more himself in natural settings like the one above, so I'm already a fan. Valkyrie on the otherhand looks inarguably awesome!

Now if this piece doesn't rock your socks, you've got the wrong blog! Poison Ivy  easily kicking back and smugly smelling the rose of success, while the male counterparts of this posts opening shot stand trapped behind her. And ladies being ladies, she's even in high heels. Because when you're in jungle terrain, heels are truly your best friend.

 What do you think?  Sound off below in the comments section or click here for more great Making A Markists. To see more of Thony's waterpaint wonders, visit his website after the jump.
