Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman by MarkRaats Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman by MarkRaats
With my sincerest apologies to the guys who REALLY know how to draw superwomen - Franchesco, Mark BrooksJ Scott Campbell and Adam Hughes and so many more, here's another commissioned piece - Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman.

The rough scan doesn't capture the subtle color differences unfortunately...

PrismaColor pencils, Copic Markers and a little Acrylic paint on A3 paper.

I can't say I really know how to draw them but hopefully I haven't disgraced myself..

Thank you very much! :)

You must be in the habit of saying that- lol. I wanted to add that since your work is based on real people (actors) there is less room for error and more skill required to render accurate likeness and bring out the heroic aspects.
There are many fine artists who know how to draw superheros but that generic cookie-cutter perfection of an artist's favorite 'look' can get tiresome. I never have seen 'sameness' in your work despite multiples of the same actor.
Always looking forward to your new work :)

they started rerunning these episodes by us recently. I could look at this image a lot longer that that show. It's a case of how great it was when you are young and how bad it is as an adult. Why linda carter wasn't on baywatch is beyond me. I like allisons suggestion of a photograph instead of a scan.

Thanks Jason buddy - nice of you to swing by..

Yeah, it was a rush drawing her - especially since she's so far out of my comfort zone!

Even these many years later, Miss Carter is still the definitive Wonder Woman. A fine tribute!

Nice. A bit of my childhood just came back to me. I actually just saw her in the spring at a Michael Nesmith concert. She still looks great!

This one screams out of my colorblind range, so how you got such volume and surface description with what looks like a single color is beyond me.. an amazing rendering of an old time personal favorite.

Thanks Denis and I hope you're well mate..

The scan is not great and it failed to pick up on the subtleties of color I used which it disappointing.. 
Hopefully the client will like it even more when he sees it in person.

Thank you so much Katherine!!

Pity the scan didn't capture the color nuances because looking at the jpg, it looks a little bland. 
Fortunately, the picture itself is better which makes me happy...

Awesome! Good detail! My mom is a huge WW fan... also a WW cosplayer lol. That might embarrass most people, but my mom actually looks like the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman once she dons the Super Suit. lol. Part of me can't help but see a drawing like this and think of my Mommy! ;-)

Thank you very much Lulu - that's probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my art..

If your Mom looks like Lynda Carter then you better hide her away because I know a LOT of people who would like to steal her away....

Your Welcome! And yeah, my Mom has been widowed for a while, and believe me, a lot of the local gents have tried to snatch her up! lol. It takes a real Wonder Woman to fight off all those guys! ;-)

Thanks Allison..

Actually I'm rather disappointed with the scan (jpg's kill reds as you eel know), because the actual piece has a LOT more color subtlety to it. I was actually wondering if maybe I should have changed the background to blue instead..

At least, the physical drawing is better which means the client will be (hopefully) happier!

on pieces that don't scan well, I'll often take a photo instead. I don't know if it would help in this instance though.
