MAKING A MARK: Pei Han Hsu The Taiwanese Artist Proving Lightning Does Strike Twice

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Pei Han Hsu, a female artist from the shores of Taiwan, who has no fear in putting Asgardian realms, Gotham or Cyberton itself under her paintbrush.

While she dubs Flash a 'practice' piece, Thor looks like it has been taken straight from the pages of a library resource book. Moody, atmospheric, and powerful - frost giants beware, that lightning is coming your way!

Catwoman's whip takes up the focus of her dynamic spread, while Harley Quinn Pei painted on the back of a calling card! Now that's a miniature canvas turned into a marvel. Speaking of transformations, let's get a little Generation one in here;

That's the thing with the original Transformers - you just can't get enough of seeing them in their original form.

 What do you think?  Sound off below in the comments section or click here for more great Making A Markists. To see Pei Han Hsu's full portfolio visit her website after the jump.


  1. I was trying to decide which one I want the most, leaning towards Thor, of course. Then I realized I want all of them.

  2. really impressive! i like his "painterly" like style. it gives his pieces a very epic feel to them. good figure composition on the characters too.

  3. Hey Random! Yip Thor is the one I keep leaning towards too - but then Jazz and Harley step forward, and pretty soon I'm back to liking all five. Definitely one talented lady!

    Dave, would you believe he is actually a she? Maybe that's why she captures the figure so well? A bit sexist, but generally I find woman have a different take to rendering the human form then many male artists. Who knows, great art in any case!

    Thanks for the comments!

  4. yes that is a bit sexy . . i mean sexist. by the way i came across something today that will blow your mind. it might be IADW post worthy look out for my email later today.
