Sometimes you stumble across an artist who has only a couple of comic based pieces, other times there can be just one work so brilliant, you'd risk being stoned to death by fellow art lovers for putting something else beside it. These are Random Works of Wow and illustrating the point this week is The Scarlet Witch, by... well I'm hoping someone can help me out on that one.
One of my friends recently emailed me this shot of the Daughter of Magneto, knowing the pre-Avengers Disassembled Wanda was my favourite Marvel character of all. He thought I'd dig it, and right he was - but it is killing me not knowing who drew it!
I've tried searching 'Scarlet Witch pin-up', 'Scarlet Witch poster', 'floral Scarlet Witch', 'Scarlet Witch flowers', 'Scarlet Witch flowers in hair' and more on DeviantART, Google and every site in a 50 website radius that has a search button. You know what answer I get? Zip. Zero. Nadda. Blank face.
All I want is a name so I can say 'Hey nameless dude or dudette, congratulations on the best Scarlet Witch I've ever seen. The way you added flowers to her hair and the leafy backdrop brilliantly nods to both her gypsy heritage and being a force of nature, without doing the 'screaming and conjuring' standard. P.S. orange rocks'
Hopefully the artist responsible will read just that if they find it here.
What do you think?
