Isn’t She Lovely?

Isn’t she wonderful?  Yeah, she kinda is.

Last year I had the opportunity to show some work with a dear friend of mine and we both independently settled on doing super hero pinups.  I already posted Mystique, but I thought that now would be a good time to get back into showing the rest of them.

Wonder Woman was the only one I was absolutely sure was going to be included in the show, but I didn’t want to give her the same spandex treatment she normally receives, so I went more in line with the Greco-Roman Legionnaire aesthetic.  And now I just want to draw her like this all the time.

Wonder Woman!

For various reasons I’ve had to draw Wonder Woman a number of times over the years, but I have to say, I think this may be one of my favorites.  Actually, I think this may be one of my favorite drawings anyway.  It’s nothing particularly special, but there are just a few small things that I’m really pleased with.  At any rate, I dug it out of the archives because I realized I hadn’t shared it with you good folks.

Good bye, Sanity!

There are thirty-seven days left until the Rose City Comic Con, and last week I was concerned that I wasn’t going to have enough to show.

My original plan was to spend the last two weeks in July drawing and then spend all of August coloring what I had done.  However, in those two weeks I managed to do twenty-four new drawings (pictured here) ; if that wasn’t enough to keep me busy there are about forty-three drawings from my sketchbook I’d like to do — and another seventeen or so that a friend suggested.

Needless to say, I won’t be able to color eighty-four drawings in thirty-seven days, but it will be interesting to see how many I can get done.  So much for feeling like I didn’t have enough work to show.

Where does she get those wonderful toys?

I’ve been absent; I apologize.  To help remedy that a friend of mine called me out.  We made a pact that we’d each update our blogs four times a week.  I had been hoping to keep sketches off of this blog, but she forced my hand.  Oh well.  Worse things have happened.

Said friend owes me a hat.  She owes me a Russian Batman hat.  So…

P.S.
DC owns Batman and they do a better job with it than I ever could.

Up, up, and away!

Merry Christmas to one and all!

When I turned in my pockets there wasn’t much to be found, so I reverted to my childhood and made her gifts this year. I’ve never been much of a DC man myself, but my mom has always had a fondness for Wonder Woman. The choice seemed clear as to what direction I should explore – besides, it’s been quite some time since I’ve done any kind of fan art.

Wonder Woman belongs to the good folks at DC comics.
