"This week, we do it a bit like our friends at Project Rooftop.
Wonder Woman changed her costume recently and this was apparently a big thing. I was too busy with other things to really... care...
But! I thought this would be a fun and easy game for you people!
Let's go with the earlier version of the character, because it's a bit mental: "...Wonder Woman owed her abilities to the goddess Aphrodite creating Amazons superior to men, with Diana being the best of their kind. Wonder Woman was...able to will a tremendous amount of brain energy into her muscles and limbs because of her Amazon training, endowing her with extraordinary strength and speed.
'...she is able to tear a steel door off its hinges. In one of her earliest appearances, she is shown running easily at 80 mph...
"...Wonder Woman's Amazon training also gave her limited telepathy, profound scientific knowledge, and the ability to speak every language known to man and beyond. She was even fluent in caveman and Martian... the ability to ride the air currents as if flying, even sensing air updrafts with her fingers; ...the ability to vibrate into another dimension; the ability to bestow wisdom to other beings; the ability to throw her tiara with such skill it could stop bullets; ...Wonder Woman was able to further increase her strength. She was unable to remove her bracelets without going insane. In times of great need, however, she would do just that, in order to temporarily augment her power tenfold. Since she would become a threat to friend and foe alike, she would use Amazonian berserker rage only as a weapon of last resort...
That's all you know. Extrapolate and design from that."
It´s been forever since I last invested any time on the guilty pleasure of fanart. But today I felt like it. Wonder Girl is a character I like a lot, but I think her current costume (and storylines) are really lame. I wanted to try a redesign to do justice to her main three aspects: -Wonder Woman protegé, with her iconic elements -Everyday girl with sort of normal clothes costume -Greek goddess, daughter of Zeus himself
As part of the Weekly Challenge to my students at Escola Oficina, I ask them to redesign the 3 iconic characters from DC Comics, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, recently destroyed...I mena, rebooted by the creative team there.
This is my version of Wonder Woman... a more greek, less american version, with the curly hair a greek amazon should have.
I didn't know if I would be posting this to dA, but with my schedule being what it is these days, I figured why not. A couple months back, an issue of the Superman main title was pulled for some controversy or another, and DC instead ran an inventory story by Kurt Busiek and Rick Leonardi. I say "inventory," but really it was an issue that ties heavily into the whole "Infinite Crisis" storyline of which I know little, and has since been rendered moot anyway. The story is basically: Superboy died (he's since gotten better, because "Comics, everybody!") and his dog misses him.
I have a current project involving my own dog (A Dudley Lab) and since I was already in dog-sketching mode, decided this would be a good time to draw her as Krypto for my own amusement (since my fiancee has squashed my plans to name any future dogs "Krypto," I have to enjoy it however vicariously). It started as a sketch, grew into an excuse to draw the Cassie version of Wonder Girl, and was just a chance for me to work on different lighting for a change. I worked on this here and there over the course of the past two months and in between other things, and was really just a practice piece for a nerd who likes his dog a lot.
So while this was never really intended for dA display, the "Man of Steel" movie is currently filming about half an hour from where I live. This past weekend I decided to stalk the set and catch a glimpse of the Smallville set (what I did see? LOTS of destruction happening in this one, kids), and now I've got an all-things-Superman buzz going.
