Early Stages Wonder Woman Painting...




This isn't my usual subject matter, but I'm painting it to donate to a show to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation for their research to find a cure.  The theme is True Heroes and the subject matter is Super Heroes.  I've never painted a Super Hero before, but I'm giving it a try with Wonder Woman.

Lately I seem to be posting very early progress shots and then jumping to the final piece...  I think that when I'm working on a deadline and get into it, I tend to forget to take additional shots.  If I remember to, I may post another in progress shot on this one.

I know quite a few artists who don't use line art, but for me, line art is essential.  I sometimes deviate somewhat from the path as I go, but I need the foundation of line art, and my early stages progress shots show the bones of the piece.

I did finish the painting I was working on last Friday on time for NFAC, she's on eBay here if you'd like to take a look at my finished piece.

Also, I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

I was a fan of wonder woman also, I think because we all secretly want to be wonder woman. Great cause, she looks strong and wonderful, looking forward to seeing the finish.

Thank you so very much! The first two super heroes (or rather heroines, because I didn't really have any interest in painting a man) who popped into my head were Cat Woman and Wonder Woman. I debated but decided that Wonder Woman was the way for me to go with this... I'm not done, but I am making some progress with her. I might post an in progress picture later.

I always love to see the work in progress, but I also forget sometimes to take pictures--I'll look at the finished piece and back at the one picture I took, and think, "Wow, that really changed!"
