Wonder Woman Redesign by guinnessyde Wonder Woman Redesign by guinnessyde
Here's my take on Wonder Woman's costume. Some of DC's more distinct characters have been designed by Jack Kirby, specifically the Fourth World stuff, the Demon's medieval world, etc., so I decided to embrace that with Diana's costume. The cut is basic Wonder Woman, but the trimmings and armor design is very Kirby-esque, as if The King dabbled in DC's Greek Mythology. The WW emblem ins unchanged, much like Superman's shield has been basically unchanged. So, still Amazon, but still applicable to the superhero world.

Pen & Ink, colored in Photoshop.

This is so wonderful. ( Ha ha :) This was linked over at the superherohype boards. I loved it so much, but some needed straps, so please, I give you all credit, and did a little bit of editing, to give her back silver bracelets and add some cute straps, and zap, pow, she is PERFECT for the upcoming  Batman Vs Superman movie with Gal Gadot as Wondy.

I give you all credit, and my little tweak is on this post: forums.superherohype.com/showp…

I like how you did neither a bakini or pants, but rather a more Greek-outfit.

Your welcome! Didn't know I actually got through. Having problems posting comments. I abhor the new costume DC Comics greated for everyones favorite Amazon Princess. One thing you do NOT do is mess with the classics.

One of these days, they'll get it right. Until then, dA is filled with talent willing to provide their own take on classics!

Thanks again!

Thanks The Gods NBC will not be picking up the new series. Now maybe they can concentrate on the movie they have promised us for over 20 years now. I find it hard to believe that DC/WB can't come up with something in two decades.

Blessed Be!

Seriously. I'm no fan of Wonder Woman's Swimsuit/pro-wrestler gear, so seeing at least some actual armor...it's nice. It really is.

That's a FANTASTIC idea, it never ocurred to me have Wonder Woman in a kirby-esque look, but it works PERFECTLY. Flawless execution (LOVE the belt), and I love that she also has a bit of a "William Moulton Marston-vibe" going on her face, was that intentional?

WMM will always have an influence on me when it comes to drawing WW, so putting WMM and Kirby's style together was sort of kismet. I'm glad you like it!

Another DC2er here. You definitely understand what the word "redesign" means. Unlike some.

Sweet costume redesign; puts Jim Lee's to shame. DC2 - the Internet's best fan fiction comic Web site [link] - is looking for an artist to do covers for Ultimate Allstars (a Justice Society title). Based on your WW image, I thought you might be interested.

It has a mayan-aztec feeling, I like a lot and much more than the new one....
