Wonder Woman

Here is a Wonder Woman sketch that was photographed directly from my sketchbook. The lasso did not come from me and was added before I had drawn mine. I just left it so that the family blessing stays healthy. :)
Usually I do not show this kind of sketches in public because they contain a lot of flaws. So there are problems with the pose, the anatomy and also perspective. On a comic page, I would fix these issues in a rough layout before even going to pencils. Here I wanted to test the rendering I had in mind and have skipped the step therefore … in the assumption that it will never get public and seen anyway. Silly me ;)
Not only do I want to show clean-up work here, but I also want to give some insight into how I practice and show how dirty sketches look like. I am convinced that every artist has endless sketchbooks on his shelves that are full of junky sketches. Therefore, my advice to all draftsmen out there: Just draw a lot and quickly with courage to the gap. Only because of your mistakes do you learn to become better. Ultimately, it is only important to recognize the mistakes so that you can improve yourself with a little more effort. But you do not need that in the sketchbook … it’s enough to recognize the mistakes and jump to the next sketch.

BTW: Wonder Woman’s pose inspired me to do the Captain Future pose from the last post.
