The lucky nine ladies of DC and Marvel that Texas based digital artist Whitney Jiar chose to illustrate are truly the best in beauty and super talent. Of course, the portraits concentrate on their heroine's essential femininity. That just makes their other attributes a sneaky kind of alter-ego, revealing the power within.
Jiar's pastiche style keeps everything recognizable while allowing for some artistic creativity. She even manages to find the perfect summation quote.
You can see more of Whitney Jiar's work at her Behance page.
The Ladies of DC
”A new journey to be started. A new promise to be fulfilled. A new page to be written.
Go forth unto this waiting world with pen in hand, all you young scribes, the open book awaits.
Be creative. Be adventurous. Be original. And above all else, be young.
For youth is your greatest weapon, your greatest tool. Use it wisely.”
