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:)

You know. Seeing as Wonder Woman is basically a classical Amazon taken to the comic book world, why has no one thought to put her in something like this? I mean really, it isn't that hard. Just take the "Superhearoin one piece" and give it a hoplite skirt to go with it and maybe like a braided rope for shoulder straps of somekind to make her look like a Grecian warrior with that comic style to it. I think that have been a better idea than the tight pants that happened recently.

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.
