Wonder Woman sketchbook by ChristopherStevens Wonder Woman sketchbook by ChristopherStevens
This one was a pain in the ass. It was in a sketchbook and I'm not a big fan of working in sketchbooks. At least...not when Im doing these mixed media pieces. My hand hangs of the right side, I can't spin it and work at different angles very easily, it's heavy and bulky and just a pain. I totally get it though. I'd like to collect commissions in a bound volume like this too. It's a cool idea in theory, but a real hassle.

Anyways, I was going for a classic WW look. I think I have more fun drawing WW than any other super heroine. Not sure why that is though. Maybe it's just the history behind the character.

Cool and warm prismacolor and cool copics with white paint on vellum bristol board

Wonder Woman DC Comics

Seriously, you have this crazy amazing thing going on when you do long hair, mostly on female characters that is. There is something even Alphonse Mucha-like in it, but it's completely unique and in your style. I love it, it makes the character look wonderful. That plus her golden lasso which you've used as a great element in the piece are one of my favourite parts of this ensemble. The background supports her well, and lets the viewer to just rest their eyes on her wonderful features - she pops out well against the cold tones. I like the glimmer on her chestpiece! Nice work (:

Thank you:) I always have fun with long hair. Black hair is the most fun as I can just ink it solid black and make abstract shapes out of it.

This is still one of my favorites. When a piece works, it just works.

Yeah, and it definately shows! I think it's just overall a spectacular job. It's a very unique touch, it made me stare the image ( and plenty of others in your gallery like it! ) in awe for a longer period of time. It's such a cool detail!

It certainly does. And you've done so well on this particular piece.

Thanks. Pocahontas. I saw that Disney film years ago and the way they rendered her hair always stuck with me. Now, anytime I do black hair, I see shapes instead of real hair.

Aw no way! Pocahontas is pretty much my favourite Disney animation, Glen Keane caught her features so perfectly - and I think the hair is what gives her that piece of mystic essence. Hehe, what a great thing to pick up (:

Yeah, for sure. The way her hair would move around in the wind and having it solid black just looked so great to me.

Reminds me a great deal of Frazetta's work in all but colour. He'd have gone really warm colours not cool.

Fantastic piece.
