My piece for this year's Wonder Woman Day:
For marlabeabenefit.com, featuring Power Girl!
Wonder Woman 1941-2008:
Diana Prince and Etta Candy from the TV series for last year's Wonder Woman Day:
I've seen this one before around the Internets.
Glad to meet the incredible talent behind it!
I promised I wouldn't spam this thread, but that promise is already falling apart. Oh well. Sorry.
I colored this for my DA buddy Spiderguile http://spiderguile.deviantart.com/
The fantastic art is his. I just colored it.
As you can see I don't have much fun coloring skin and clothes. I just like painting metal effects. I'm shallow that way.

and I did post one! It's bad.
Really, you'd be much better served doing a google search, I think. There must be tons of them out there.
But if you're still curious, here it is in different stages:
I never got around to doing part 3 because I suck monkeyballs .
And for the real artists out there who'd see them and say "That's not how it's done!"
It's not. It's just the way I do things. And that's why there are better artists out there who do more believable painting.
ETA. Eliseu Gouveia!
I recognize that pic! I faved it on DA ages ago!
If I may be completely honest, I don't quite get her getup. Was she wearing that under her armor and she got hot after the battle?
I do love the colors. LOVE. I love the detail of the bodies. And her hair has a Lynda Carter touch! NICE!
And I love that her sword looks like an actual gladius sword, and not a crosshilted midieval european thing as some artists tend to do. You do not know how much that irks me.
Lovely lovely lovely work.

I did these sketches a few years ago, and I've posted them a million times before, but what the hell.
This first one has Diana leaning over, I think my original idea was for her to be talking to a child. I intended for her to have the tiara, but I got into a groove drawing the hair, so I left it off. The other figure is supposed to be Vanessa Kapatelis. That mess in the corner was a close up of Vanessa's face, but I didn't like it, so I cropped it out.
The second sketch features a trio of Wonder Woman villains. First is Queen of Fables, whose face I modeled after Jessica Lange's. Next is Cheetah, who I made some slight alterations in design to. I wanted her to look very creepy and beastly (I'm not a fan of the "sexy Cheetah" we've seen in recent years). Finally, there's Silver Swan, whose costume I thought needed a redesign. That's supposed to be a feather boa coiling around her head. The breast plate is meant to be two swans facing each other, with their necks joining together to make a heart shape. On her torso is chainlink fishnetting, and on her wrist is a feather vambrace.
Sorry to go off on a tangent.
