THE WONDER WOMAN ANIMATED PROJECT
I thought that drawing in animation style was simple because of the easy props and lines, but it's actually very difficult! The hardest thing for me is to give the character enough substance and expression with so few lines.
It would be so cool if the animated department of Dc comics decided to develop a cartoon based on Wonder Woman.
Here's what i could look like:
Wonder Woman model sheet
Wonder Woman turnarounds
Wonder Woman's outfits.
From above, left to right:
3- her new costume in the "Challenge of Wonder Woman" arc
4- her contest outfit in the Flashback episode
5- her motorcycle/swimming outfit (i know some hate it, but i personally love it and think it works very well in animation style)
Donna Troy in the "who is Donna Troy" episode
Cassie as Wonder Girl
Artemis as Wonder Woman in "the challenge of Artemis" episode and in her amazon outfit.
