Hey you guyyyys, I heard that you guys like pretty things? And [personal profile] nevermore999 needs some Wonder Woman fanart?

WELL

Unfortunately I have no shipping pictures, but I do have a buttload of gorgeous Wonder Woman and Superheroine art by the ONE and ONLY monstrously talented JAIME HERNANDEZ of Love & Rockets!

Photobucket



First, the lovely Wonder Woman herself. Hola!

Here a few more superwomen from both DC and Marvel that Jaime's drawn for fans or as spot illustrations:

Photobucket
Oh gosh! Supergirl!

Photobucket
It's the Black Widow! (I think? Superheroes ain't my specialty.) SHE PAINTS ON HER COSTUME I DID NOT KNOW THAT

Photobucket
Medusa is waving at me! NOT YOU! ME!

Photobucket
Cutie-pie Wasp!

Photobucket
Kitty looks rather shy in an appropriately teenagery kind of way.

Photobucket
Grr-rowwl. Hiss hiss.

Okay well now if you enjoyed those things but do not know much about Jaime Hernandez and the Love & Rockets comic series that him and his brothers have been blowing minds with since like forever well then I will tell you then that you might very much like his actual comics stuff too! Not a lie! It's fabulous!

And now I will tell you more about Jaime if you like! IF YOU DO NOW LIKE IT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ! It's okay, my feelings will not be hurt. These are the characters Jaime's most well known for:
Photobucket
The Locas! Maggie Chascarillo and Hopey Glass, life-long punks, best friends, and sporadic lovers. Jaime been following them through their lives together and apart for years and they're still going strong, still trying to grow up, still trying to understand themselves and each other. This is a more current picture of Maggie:
Photobucket

Seems like Jaime's gotten a little bit obsessed with superheroes again as of late in his Love & Rockets: New Stories collections. His newest work brings a jumble of aging and newbie superheroines together into the generally mundane world of his favorite characters Maggie and Hopey and not nobody even flinches. Maggie gets positively giddy when she finds out that apartment tenants appears to enjoy an unusual nightlife...

Photobucket

...but her giddiness wanes a little when her sweet friend Angel starts feeling inspired to reinvent herself as her own kind of crime fighter:

Photobucket

Wooo-ha! They've put out some lovely giant collections of The Locas stories that make a great introduction to the stories now and I highly recommend them! OKAY REALLY I AM DONE NOW SORRY IF I CRASHED YOUR BROWSER COMICS ARE JUST SO AMAZING!

EDIT: Hopefully I am doing this right. Suggested tags: char: wonder woman/diana of themyscira, char: wasp/janet van dyne, char: medusa/medusalith amaquelin, char: black widow/natasha romanova, char: supergirl/kara zor-el, char: catwoman/selina kyle, char: shadowcat/kitty pryde, creator: jaime hernandez, title: love and rockets

Without a second glance of looking at the costume I knew that was Kitty Pryde just by her face alone. That's how good this art is in capturing all those fine subtle details that normally get missed. Very impressive.

Hey you guyyyys, I heard that you guys like pretty things?

No! You heard wrong! We demand ugly things! LIEFELD ART AND GREG LAND PORNFACES FOR ALL!

But seriously, that's some pretty awesome art you posted there. That's Catwoman pic's my favourite. Kudos and thumbs up all around.

I made a tiny little squeal, not gonna lie. Such an adorable Jan. And the Kitty one is so very... Kitty (I know that sounds weird, but considering how it seems to be getting less likely for her to look like herself in art lately, it's the only way I can describe it).

Someone in this comm has, or had, a SUPER cute avatar of a girl Robin strongly based on Carrie Kelly. I don't suppose you have the original image in this collection?

I lost all my old Love & Rockets, sadly, but the Bros artwork and storytelling were things of beauty. BTW, Jaime did the Phantom Girl and Shrinking Violet entries in the DC Who's Who.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: not liking the Hernandez brothers is like not liking Johnny Cash.

I love both of Los Bros, but Jaime especially; the way he uses solid blacks is just flabbergastingly good.

I love how he draws women. Like a great big "Fuck you" to SuperTorso.

And so sexy.

You know what I love best about Jaime Hernandez's art? It's not just that (unlike so, so many cartoonists) he has no issues with making the plus-sized (and, in the last few years, middle-aged) Maggie the protagonist of his stories. It's that he manages to make her every bit as beautiful and sexy as the younger, slimmer women he's drawn (including Maggie herself in her earlier appearances).

His brother Gilbert, in contrast, while a talented artist in his own right, seems to have chosen these last several years to draw pretty much only painfully, unrealistically large-breasted and tiny-torsoed women (at least in his Luba stories). I much prefer his earlier Palomar stories where the women characters came in all sizes and ages, and weren't all inadvertent walking advertisements for breast-reduction surgery and chiropractic.

Those Wonder Women look like drag queens.

They do look short, and a bit stocky and oddly pointy breasted, but the faces all seem perfect Lynda Carter. I miss her in Wonder Woman.
