Artist’s Corner: Daxiong Gives The Women Of DC Pet Dragons!

Posted: June 5, 2012 in Artist's Corner, daxiong

What’s better than three of the most gorgeous women in comics coming together under one outstanding artist’s pencil?  Adding some dragons, that’s what!

Daxiong has an amazing display of oriental artwork portraying women surrounded by various things of their culture.  What I think he’s most known for, however, is his inclusion of dragons.  Words cannot describe just how amazing his work is.

Of course, this is not unfamiliar territory for Wondy, being the daughter of a mythological being and all, but even Zatanna and Supergirl have some experience with the strange and weird don’t they?  This is not-an-out-of-place, or out-of-character superheroine motif, but rather an acknowledgment of a literary genre that is as much mythological as it is science fiction.

Over at Daxiong’s deviant art page you can find more of this very thing.  Art that combines cultures into one unifying project which creates something powerful and moving is always welcome in my book!  Go on over and discover more of his work that sets the bar very high for upcoming artists.

    It’s nice art, but kind of odd – it almost looks like he did the dragon, and then the heroine, and then just put the heroines on a top layer with the dragon. They don’t really have the same depth.

      I guess I don’t see that, but to each his own. Could it be you’re seeing this oddity within the art because of how strange it is? How often do we actually see these heroes with dragons in a harmonious way?
