Artist Dan Dos Santos Illustrated a Series of Tough Women

Illustration artist Dan Dos Santos created this collection of incredible female characters. Each of the women in this series has powerful stares, amazing outfits and no-to-be-messed-with personas. Each woman has her own culture, story and conflict. Their battles, whether interior or exterior, have turned them into firm, dominant figures.

His illustrations look surreal yet lifelike – some of his female characters are vampires and zombie-like creatures but the detail he puts into them makes them seem realistic. Every vein, shadow and wrinkle that would normally exist in a portrait also has a place in his surreal drawings. Artist Dan Dos Santos truly has an eye for what is unique yet fashionable, surreal yet convincing. His characters are so stylish yet haunting because of the minutely abnormal details and for their intensely powerful presences.
