Also Pictured: Invisible Plane


Hey!

I thought I'd get an early start on the Golden Age Show. I decided to keep it short and sweet and just do a pinup of Wonder Woman. I don't particularly care about Wonder Woman, if we're being honest, but she is a powerful image who a lot of people dig, and I think this painting could potentially be pretty cool. Thoughts/comments/suggestions appreciated!

this is a perfect choice for you, maryann. drawing looks really great, can't wait for the finish.

also, i used to be like you and not give any shits about wonderwoman but THINGS HAVE CHANGED for me. wake up to the truth, maryann...

What a great design Mary! I love how the lasso encompasses her and leads the eye around the entire piece. Can't wait for this one! The drawing is superb too!

Is it too early to want to buy this?

this is going to be a great piece. she's an important icon, and created by the inventor of the modern [inadmissible] polygraph machine. truth is important.

my only thing, and it's minor, is that i would urge you to work on the shape and form of the lasso. the flow and direction is there, and the idea to encapsulate and move the eye around is dead on, but the flow isn't quite there yet. draw big. stand up if you have to. be fast, be sloppy but light at first. use that whole arm. get messy. do it on other sheets of paper. re trace. whatever.

i think this piece is going to be INCREDIBLE; the drawing already is, but with a tiny bit of extra attention to th flow and shape and fluidity of the lasso, it will bring grace to the strength

phenomenal drawing. powerful & feminine. the anatomy is so good; you capture the difficult subtle curves in anatomy that most of us over simplify to compensate for their difficulty.

Thanks guys!! PW, I really appreciate your compliments. I'm humbled! And I will certainly take your advice about the lasso-- it does need some attention.

Also, no it is not too early to want to buy this ;)

Great stuff!
Looking forward to the finish.

I hope every single rendition of a female in this show is one of those pinups, so far yours is and mine is. Its an homage to tacky explicitness and definitely a sign of the times.

as a huge wonder woman fan i do like your drawing but i was a bit disappointed to read how you don't particularly care for your subject matter.
