90s X-Fashion Realness by kevinwada 90s X-Fashion Realness by kevinwada
Recent commission, full description: [link]

The client wanted early 90s fashion, so I gave it to him in spades. Great art direction by him. We have Oya, Storm, Frenzy, and M. (I also loved showcasing ONLY ethnic minority mutants. How often does that get to happen??) I really wanted to capture the features of African American women. I hate when artists/comics draw western features for a character, give them a dark tan, and call it a day.

Oya is giving you youthful midriffs and high skirts and socks and heels (yes!)

Storm is sophisticated minimalist. Chanel high class couture.

Frenzy's a bad bitch, in Versace bondage of 92.

M is giving you Ms. Cindy. JPG 90s realness.

Was that not suppose to be them? Cause when I first saw this pic I thought it was Rihanna and Emeli Sande. That looks exactly like Rihanna. The outfit looks like the one she wore in Umbrella or some video and Storm looked exactly like Emeli but darker skin (Emile is half white Irish so she has more European features.)Actually all of those singers are Biracial.
