WONDER WOMAN by croaky WONDER WOMAN by croaky
An icon among icons.

Ah it's good to colour things even if it takes a good while these days. For the outfit design I basically did a Google image search and stole elements of various styles, plus added the chest plate armour look and pants. The pants is not a statement--I love her usual outfit, but I also just love drawing pants. Also wanted to touch on that charming retro style--hence the big smile.

That first thing is usually how I design hero & villain costumes, too.

Cool. She looks like she could go up against Lobo. (Who is Doomsday-level tough, if you didn't know)

I hate the fact that she has pants now. And I hate that Superman's underwear on the outside is gone. The new DC redesigns really just suck in general.

You, on the other hand, did an excellent job. This is really good

I think she looks better with pants. It seems to make a statement--female empowerment almost. I think wonderwoman shouldn't always have to wear hot pants. What's wrong with some comfortable pants to beat up evil-doers with? :)

DC really needs to take note of the mix of modern and classic themes.

Hey! I really love your art! But I have a few questions. I have photoshop, but no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get things as epic as what you create. Like, I don't know how to fill things with color, there's no icon for it! I need some tips on how to use it. Can you help me out before Thursday? If not thats ok!

Awesome work again! :D

Wow. She actually looks like she could go out and kick some serious bad guy but in that outfit. Maybe it's the armour...
Overall a good job, although she does look like she's got a twisted shin bone and her face is a bit... Gaunt. Kind of looks like she hasn't eaten in a few days... At least. The nearest shoulder is a bit off as well; due to the angle of her arm and the fact that you've already drawn her to have some muscle the outer line shouldn't dent in that much where the upper arm joins the shoulder. In fact there shouldn't be any dent at all; I checked on my own arm.
Other than those three things -- very good job.

I'm terribly sorry, but my first thought was, "Yay, she's actually properly -dressed- for once!", and then I noticed all the lovely details. Do love that she's wearing armour, it does make her look more badass than otherwise. And as someone below me said, her rope has a shiny, golden lustre! And looks rather rope-y, too.

:boogie: It's nice to see some reimagining of the characters' outfits that doesn't break their concept. And the stars on her trousers are a nice touch! How come a greek-ish woman wears the American flag, though? Is that ever explained in the comic books?

Thank you! I haven't read the comics, but I've seen some creators explaining it like the recent animated film that "it is an Amazon custom to don the colours of the foreign nation when going on an official visit".

That would explain it, it would. And it seems the Americans love her for it, wouldn't you say?

Wow her pants! And i love the rope, dont know why. The whole BG with the big fonts look simple, retro and thus, great!

Just a question since I'm super stupid: are you drawing the outlines directly into PS, or it is handdrawn with markers and scanned in?
