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
DC just released the new Wonder Woman costume a moment ago. I felt the urge to draw her without the Black Canary jacket that already didn´t work back in the 90s. But I do like the new top and think Diana benefits from the underwear-to-long pants transition, as Martian Manhunters and many others before her.
[edit 30 04 2012 ] : Reviewed for the third time. I don't think I can fix it better now.
I think the face is easier to watch now I also fixed some light and hues. Head shape was REALLY redefinited. Still lots of mistakes but I can't really fix more things than these actually :/ A huge thanks to the people who appreciated this painting however, made me working back on it ----------------------------------------------------------
This is Wonder Woman; with some kind of more... huh "realistic clothes" If I may say.
Spent nearly 2 month on this one (Oils ) I think the basic drawing was ok, but I lost size and proportion (and basic pose) with the time, overpainting here and there, adding LOOOOOOTS of glazes...
I WASN'T going for a realistic rendering however, it's more about basic painting than illustration ; like the siren I did >
I like the color tho. but I 'm really disappointed by the modeling itself. I'll not cry if no one like/fav this one; I promess. But as I'm not a good judge about my stuff; I felt like submitting it, who know? I thought my previous Donna pic wouldn't meet any interest, and finally that's the strict opposition ....
(P.S : I'll edit this later, it's not a scan, but 2 photos, and badly put together, there's some area bad linked :/ )
For those who are not happy with it, you may give a look to an old digital one I did >
"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."
