In case you missed it on the Major Spoilers Podcast, I’m right in the middle of the post production for a bit that is due tomorrow morning, and my need to get this thing edited yesterday, had me miss an all important deadline, with you Dear Reader – the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day.  Had I not been buried under a mountain of DV Tapes, a mess of wires connecting decks to monitors, and hard drives to less than top of the line computers, I would have presented you with this – Chris Foulkes take on Wonder Woman.  A little manga never hurt anyone.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, my render is finished, which means it’s time to move on to audio sweetening, before final output.

    Yeah right, that’s how it starts. Then you wake up one morning with big eyes, a small mouth, and a tentacle in your bed.

    Not bad art though, I really like the inking.

    WW here is maybe a little short in the torso and thick in the thighs but I do like the piece. The manga work makes her look much more youthful. Yet I think it works well for this illustration.

    This one reminds me very much of Promethea.
    Haven’t seen Victoria in that one yet!!

      Haven’t seen much of Victoria, period. Don’t you work around here? LOL

      Personally, I like the Wonder Woman piece as well even though I am not a manga fan.

      I’m not sure why though. Maybe it’s because often WW looks a bit … I dunno … hardened. This invokes images of a younger, more optimistic warrior-maiden.

    Wow, she looks…


    Is this Wonder Girl?

    I guess I like to imagine my superheroes to be in their early 30s…. Wonder why that is?

      I don’t know. Why do you think that is?

      One of my coworkers is 18. She has spent the last couple of days living out of her car during a move, causing her to wear colorful brassieres under white tops, making the underclothing clearly visible. Generally, that might be worth noticing in a girl-enjoyment way, but this just made me wonder if she’s okay, and if she’s getting enough sleep…

      The reason you like superheroes in your 30’s is the same reason that I looked at her and didn’t think “Ooh, lingerie.” Age-appropriateness. :)

    Manga look is nice, but takes her too young, not quite up to the “Woman” title
