Wondy

With all the talk of Wonder Woman and her trousers over the last few days, I have decided to draw Wonder Woman for the first time ever. I wish Babylon 5 man all the best with his run on Wonder Woman. I still think that if comic book companies want to arrest their decline, they should stop having the books drawn that way they seem to look these days, all photorealistic and gross. Comics should be fun! But that is a debate for another day, there are still many fun, exciting artists out there, plying their trade against the prevailing editorial wind.

Of course in my own mind, all comic books are written and drawn by me or idiots like me, and a typical Wonder Woman adventure is like an episode of Seinfeld with explosions.

"like an episode of Seinfeld with explosions."

I'd watch that.

So does that imply that your ideal casting for Wonder Woman would be a young Julia Louis-Dreyfus?

In terms of body depiction, your drawing is more realistic than what's in the comic books. Remind me of that episode of Bones where Emily Deschanel dresses as Wonder Woman.

Lovely! I think you did a great job!

Please sell prints to this! I would totally buy one!

I'd love to do prints of my drawings like this but I don't think it's really legal. It would be like someone else selling their own pictures of Shelley and Amy.

You draw her sexy and sensible, like she's considering how to invest her Paradise Island gold treasures.

I agree with you, both in the realism and the explosions. Wish you drew WW more often

This is WW with an attitude! She looks like she just spent a while listening to jolly 1960's TV Batman and Robin banter.
