Wednesday Favorites!

I'm quite eager to share with you today, one of my favorite digital artists of the moment, Alice X. Zhang! She paints portraits of popular characters in modern fiction for the most part, such as Doctor Who and Lisbeth Salander (both above). I don't think the fact that the characters already exist take any power away from her work since, as you can see for yourself, every piece is stamped with her signature vibrant colors and is infused with emotion as only a true artist is able to do.

I highly recommending checking out her full gallery on the DeviantArt website, where you can buy prints and even inquire about commissioning artwork if you should so desire. Hope you enjoy Alice's work and the food photography below it as much as I have!
