Comic book art is famed for depicting heroes in skin tight costumes, but these Marcio Takara illustrations stand out from his contemporaries’ work. It may be his pseudo cartoony style that exaggerates, but remains faithful to idealized human anatomical proportions. It may also be his minimalist approach to rendering superhero apparel and his use of the visually effective cel-shading style -- or it could all just be his penchant for illustrating hot comic book babes. Whatever the reason, Takara’s art is just impossible for viewers to ignore.
