Edited: Forgot her Golden Lariat! Added and moved the sig off her bootie by request :)
Here's my submission for this week's challenge: Golden Age Super Heroes: Wonder Woman done in the Sailor Jerry tattoo style.
I originally was considering doing a series of X-men portraits in the style of the old cartoons, such as Disney, Tex Avery, Popeye and Betty Boop. Here's a scan of the ideas I was tossing around in my Moleskine:
I then thought maybe I could do something in the style of a pin-up calendar girl. As I was mulling that idea over, I decided I wanted to include my love of all things tattoo. Sailor Jerry was a prolific tattoo artist in the late 30s & 40s and his style is quite iconic (WITHOUT the help of Ed Hardy shirts, I might add). I wanted a more colorful drawing, so I picked Wonder Woman, but drawing her up wasn't without challenges. As I got ready to outline her, I pulled off the cap of a Micron pen to find it had leaked. The ink splattered on the paper. Photoshop to the rescue!
Hope you like it! I figured I'd at least get the current theme up so I don't feel TOO far behind X)
