From the Dark Underbelly of Original Art

Some people have regular jobs (we call them “regs” or “norms”) and, for them, Monday has some significance. I’m told these people need a pick-me-up on Monday morning to assist them through their miserable workday and unfulfilling life. To that end, I declare every workweek will begin with “Admit You Like It Monday.” On AYLIM I’ll highlight some of the more interesting original art auctions on Ebay in the hopes of making your eight hours at the foundry move along a little faster.

First, let’s admit we like this Scarlet Witch commission from Ken Branch. You may know Ken as the dude who goes to sports conventions and does original art depicting sports celebrities for them to then sign. No? You don’t know Ken Branch from that? Weird. He does a decent A-Rod. Here, he does the best Scarlet Witch I’ve ever seen. I don’t know what it is exactly about this piece that works, but SOMETHING. Wanda seems extra dynamic here.

Next up, we’ve got this White Queen illustration from Shelton Bryant. Obviously, this is the White Queen, Emma Frost, in all her glory. You can tell it’s her by the… hm… I’m actually not sure how you can differentiate this naked blonde from other naked blondes. But I’m confident that Shelton wouldn’t lie to us. It’s the White Queen. For sure.

And lastly, we’ve got this. It’s Wonder Woman. Obviously. She looks just like this in every Wonder Woman comic I’ve ever not purchased. It’s her look. Lee Rumiko, whose work really deserves a Google Image Search by everyone reading this, does the Amazonian justice here with his very realistic depiction. Admit you like it.
