Marvel heroes have been on the rise for years, thanks to all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is especially true for artists and cartoonists whose inboxes were flooded with superhero commission requests. One of such artists is cartoonist/caricaturist Xi Ding. He was born and grew up in Shanghai but honed his artistic skills in Austria, where he lives and works to this day.
Xi Ding has a very unique style of caricature, on which he’s been working for the last ten years. All he needs is 3-4 minutes to figure out a character’s facial features and redraw them in one of many styles. As you may have figured out from the title he did a lot of Marvel characters but that’s not the only fandom he’s dabbled in, so go follow him right now!
