Meet Xi Ding, an artist based in Austria who likes to refers to himself as a face designer. Why a face designer? Because he specialise in characters and facial expression of his creations. The artist likes to create layers and slowly work his way towards the finish product, which is always pretty damn awesome!
Ding usually works with Photoshop and one of his favorite things to create is Marvel characters. Being a huge comics and Marvel movies, Xi takes a spontaneous approach to his work and adds a different spin to the characters as you can see in the gallery below.
