Critique; an excelent use of light to give Wonder Woman that classic look. The brush stroke style also harkens back to a classic 1970s feel when this kind of rendering was used in a lot of art (I just critiqued a piece that used a dissimilar Syd Mead approach, but still hearkening back to an era when oil paintings were being used much in the exact same was as CGI is today).

What's really amazing is that there are several light sources which could be surreal, or could speak of a night scene, or maybe a stage setting where Wonder Woman is the main attraction, but one gets the feeling that it's something else. It's a kind of ambiguous setting for her. We don't see the detail of the setting that she's in, but we can gleam a sense of her circumstances by her expression wish connotates a kind of guarded optimism combined with an expectant pessimism; i.e. has something happened, and, if so, has it come to a finish or is there something else yet to come after the event or thing she is witnessing?

Also in this piece we get a sense that's she's expended energy, but does not need to refortify herself as she might be bracing for another action. We don't know. Some kind of event has taken place, and she is preparing more, or, more rather, is in a frame of mind that is waiting for more input as to what she should do next. She is, in a sense, waiting for the next move.

The eagle on her breast plate seems to portrude a bit, and the tiara seems to give her a little more protection than in other renderings of the same character, but it is still a band and not a full head piece.

A really great piece here. :)

She is far more beautiful than Lynda Carter...and much more like WW than lovely Lynda. I like the strength and focus she shows in your art. Wonderful!

I agree completely. But then the chiseled, aqualine features match ny own idea of beauty. Of course, WW is a Greek goddess and this depiction seems more accurately to depict such a woman than the sifter LC look.

Lynda Carter had that combination of cuteness + classic beauty, with the cupid's bow mouth, and so on. That's what made her. You have something here, but not that.

Right on. Her chiseled, aqualine features are far stronger than LC's and far more typically Greek.

DAZ Studio, it's been an entertaining diversion for about 2 years. I used to draw some time ago, but it's a skill you have to keep at as I'm sure you know. The 3d medium is instant gratification in comparison. Are you thinking of trying it? With your ability I'm sure you'd master it in short order.
