Diana by doomedarts Diana by doomedarts
I had this idea when I saw that she's got a new look on comics.

When I was younger, I was a fan of Diana stories (and I'm not really a DC fan, aside from her, Green Lantern and Flash), but never understood why a greek warrior demi-goddess had references to the United States flag on her costume, besides I really think that white-starred-blue-shorts is horrible. I also remember an episode from the JL cartoon where some reverend says on TV that she looks like a whore and she gets really pissed :D ... So I decided to put on my own idea on how she should look.

In the sketch, her face was inspired by Lucy Lawless' (who I wished a lot to make Diana's role, if ever a WW movie is to be made), but I ended changing it a bit.
My sister told me the costume looked inspired by Kurumada's Saint Seiya - Knights of the Zodiac. It might be true, since I'm a fan of this, but it was not a conscious choice... :P

It took me quite a long time, don't idea of how much working straight. Maybe someday I should take off the outline to make it more realistic. Sorry for not putting the feet into the drawing, I must confess I got a bit lazy...
Hope you enjoy!
_____________________

Eu tive esta idéia quando soube que ela tinha ganhado um novo uniforme nas HQs.
Eu fui um fã das historias da Mulher Maravilha qdo pequeno (e eu não sou exatamente um fã da DC, além dela, Lanterna Verde e Flash), mas nunca entendi por que uma semi-deusa guerreira grega teria referencias à bandeira estadunidense no uniforme, além de achar que aquele shortinho azul com estrelas brancas horrivel. Eu também me lembro de um episodio no desenho animado da Liga da Justiça onde um reverendo qualquer diz na TV que o visual dela parece o de uma prostituta, e ela fica MUITO nervosa :D ... Então resolvi desenhar a minha idéia de como ela deveria parecer.

No esboço, o rosto dela foi inspirado no da Lucy Lawless (a Xena, q eu gostaria muito que fizesse o papel da MM num filme - se ele for feito algum dia...), mas acabei mudando-o um pouco.
Minha irmã disse que o uniforme ficou parecendo com Cavaleiros do Zodíaco, do Masami Kurumada. Isso talvez seja verdade, já que sou um fã desse mangá, mas não foi algo consciente... :P

Levou bastante tempo pra ficar pronto, mas não tenho idéia de qto tempo de trabalho direto. Talvez um dia eu retire o contorno e faça uma versão mais realista. Desculpem não ter feito os pés, confesso que fiquei com um pouco de preguiça... :D
Espero que curtam!

Also check out the Stan Lee version of Wonder Woman. I agree with u though a greek, demi-goddess wearing the red-white-blue.. Really????!!! The writers over there or still hung -up on that pin-up girl style from the 50's. Diana's a babe in any clothes but she really needs a woman's touch. Women are not sex objects. But the boys over at DC comics  are geeks with hard-ons and living in their mothers basement who will never know a real woman.

Nice! Diana in Red is reminiscent of Mother mary in Red, and even Isis. Diana, Isis Sophia are all mixed with Mary in Revelation.

Thanks for your comment. That's interesting from the gnostic point of view, I did not know that. But I used the red and gold colors in reference to the orginal costume, while a bit influenced by Kurumada's Saint Seiya, as pointed in the description, I hardly use christian references.

well, it's all connected in some ways, so makes sense you'd come across it in some way.

Gostei da idéia, especialmente da predominância do contraste entre vermelho e dourado. Mandou bem!

I think her left arm needs to be reworked or something. But other than that, the piece is marvelous! :)

Thanks for the comment!

Looking now, the shading on the upper part of the arm is a bit weird and gives a strange impression on its position.

If I get to rework it, I'll let you know!

Yes, what I like about it is that it still looks like her even though its different. Prefereable to the new one they have in the comics.

Thanks! I like the idea of reimagining some characters which I like much but it's time for a change, or which the looks don't fit them very well.

I saw her new look and thought it's nice visually, at least better than the original, but still it does not fit her very well, in my opinion. Then I tried to give it a more "greek" feel.

Maybe I'll try to make another one someday and go further in this idea.
