Lovely musculature! BTW as the costume debate rages on in fandom, I for one am a big fan of the new choker. In the hands of the right artist, it looks both regal and sexy on Diana. You sir are one of those right artists. Nicely done!
I'm looking at this piece and I'm looking at the comments that follow and I'm left shaking my head. How are people not giving this more detailed comments? This is so amazing!
It's great to see art floating around of Diana in her new costume. It took me a bit to come around to it but I'm loving it. While I feel Geoff Johns doesn't know what he's doing writing Wondy in Justice League, she sure is awesome in her own title. While there are some questionable choices made for her newly revamped continuity I feel Azzarello is pulling it off nicely. That's just my opinion...
... I'm also of the opinion that this is a spectacular drawing. For something that appears to just be a "Happy New Year" piece this is quite well-drawn. I love Diana's pose. It's as if she's posing to be painted or sculpted. Her musculature here is absolutely brilliant and I'm in awe of how well defined you've made her. She looks strong yet still beautiful. THAT is Wonder Woman to me. She's not a drag queen nor is she a waif. Also, I'm glad there's not a mountain of cleavage. That's always a bonus for me. I think the colours are great on this piece and I think the metal textures in particular stand out. There are just so many details on here that I feel that I can't accurately praise -- the lasso, the mossy rock below her, etc. It's all great. Her expression is so beautiful and her hair is... gorgeous! You've done such a great job!! This is quite possibly one of the best Wonder Woman pieces I've ever seen.
Wow! Really? It's hard to believe that since your art is absolutely incredible. It is frustrating that for the most part people these days seem incapable of writing more than a few words on a comment for someone's art. It can be discouraging (at least IMO) so when I come across pieces as great as yours I have to give the artist the respect and credit they deserve by working my Jane Austen-sized magic on comments. XD
VERY NICE JOB, just curious on one thing , & its not your coloring at all, but even if you go back to any year of WW comics, why is that the Blue in her costume seems to match her hair, just seems to be another trend, & you don't really find that in any other heroine , well that I notice Still VERY NICE WORK here, Love it
That's actually a question I know the answer to, lol. In the early days of comics they used simple 4-color printing techniques and that shade of blue was easy to get consistently, so it was used a lot as a highlight for both black and blue, in hair a tights especially. Spider-man's Costume was actually intended to be black where it's blue, but due to that blue highlighting, it eventually just became canon that the costume was blue and not black. Now you know
WEll thank you very much for that history lesson, & I am also familiar with the 4 Color rules, but in this day & age, that 4 Color stuff is somewhat outdated, there are still times when it applies of course. with all that said I do still really like your work here
