Canadian artist Yue Wang has a way with portraits. Just one peek through her portfolio and you'll be sucked into the gaze of characters including The Legend of Zelda hero Link, Princess Mononoke, Aragorn, Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud and even Jessica Rabbit. Piercing eyes aside, Wang's penchant for bright colors and intense lighting effects helps amplify each of her subjects' personal qualities. Chun-Li's fiery, Howl radiates mystery and the Bleach cast crackles with fire and ice. See a few of our favorite pieces by Wang after the cut.
