Browsing comic books is a great source of design inspiration, from character design to landscape concepts. Following on from our first showcase focusing solely on comic book inspiration – From Pencil To Paper, Inspiring Comic Book Art and not longer after I followed on focusing on two comic book artists with a guest post on Abduzeedo – Incredible Illustrations by Mitch & Elizabeth.
Today we focus on DC Comic’s gorgeous Amazon, Wonder Woman showcasing some extremely talented art work. For those who don’t know who Wonder Woman is check out her bio:
Wonder Woman is an Amazon (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and was created by Marston, an American, as a “distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to a world torn by the hatred of men. Her powers include superhuman strength, flight, super-speed, super-stamina, and super-agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare.
She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and an invisible airplane. -Wikipedia
Each week I will be featuring a different Super Hero taken from the DC and Marvel series.
