DC Antiquity - Wonder Woman by dustsplat DC Antiquity - Wonder Woman by dustsplat
-Rough character design sketch done as an exercise for fun for myself. Wanted to take the iconic DC characters and redesign them to fit in a more medieval antiquity world. Thinking what type of characters they would grow to be if they had to deal with the morals and ways of living of that era-

I saw Wonder Woman's character as someone who had to juggle the pressures of not only being a super hero, but also being a leader to her people and staying true to the customs of her culture, and on top of that, a daughter who didn't want to disappoint her mother.

I wanted her costume to not only reflect that she was a warrior, but also someone of somewhat high status and wisdom.

I enjoyed working on her:)

I love this, not only is it drawn wonderfuly, but I love how you drew her! She's actually buff and looks like she can kick but in a battle! And I love her outfit! It's an actual outfit that a woman could fight in and not be afraid that her stuff is gonna fall out if you know what I mean... -__- but yeah, this is really great work. :)

If anything, this outfit you've given Wonder Woman looks more like something I would expect an Amazon to wear.

I am a huge fan of this series of work. I would love to see this in comic book form. A medieval/fantasy take on traditional DC comics would definitely be a fun read. Especially with your take on Batman. That is by far my favourite of this series, though I've only commented on this one since I wanted to look through all the pictures first. Each of them fit the character's original concept well.

Superman is a natural fit as a knight in armor with his red cape and the S crest on his breastplate. Lex Luthor molds naturally into the medieval aristocratic role that you portrayed him, though I'll admit looking at the picture before clicking on it I thought he was missing his right arm. I quickly realized it was behind his back though when I clicked on the picture itself.

Wonder Woman was meant to be in this role, it would seem. The way she was raised even in the stories had her primed to be recreated in antiquity and I love the detail you put into her armor. The owl on her shoulder was a nice touch, as well. All in all this is an amazing series I would love to see more DC characters. The Flash, the Green Lantern, Aquaman, the Green Arrow. Hopefully we'll get to see many more of these characters. If only I could find a comic book that depicted these characters this way...
