Watercolors as a medium often carry a passive and relaxing connotation, but illustrator Mike Kretz uses it to render the most dynamic and aggressive women around. Specifically, Kretz paints female comic book characters, with Wonder Women making multiple appearances in his portfolio. Though the heroine is renowned for kicking butt and brawling alongside the most masculine of superheroes, Kretz actually portrays her in a more elegant light, with images of her looking simply serene. Who knew watercolor illustrations could so easily revamp a person’s public image?

Mike Kretz also has myriad paintings inspired by geeky cinematic characters on his deviantART page. Familiar faces from Batman, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings make an appearance. As he improves his technique, Kretz’s paintings are becoming much more realistic rather than stylized.
