Wonder woman, I love love this character, I remember when I was younger , I always use to watch the justice league in the morning, was so awesome XD I might refine this a bit more or try something different with the hair later : )
Well…I don’t even think I need to add the usual “AWESOME”
This is extremely well-considered. Bravo!

Here is my latest print for Nycc , I should be at table h2
There are some women who I left out I am sure but for the sake of sanity lets just say they are the little dots in the back. Or off world fighting a greater threat. I had a ton of fun with this one and i hope you guys like it
i added a cosmic treadmill for fun so we can get at least one flash rep in there amongst all the fliers, glider, and rock floating riders.
Word emerged yesterday that there will be another go at Wonder Woman TV series just a year after the failure of an attempt by NBC to mount a David E. Kelley take on the character. Right now only a pilot script is in development using the working title “Amazon”. There are quite a few steps that have to happen for anyone to be watching the show next year.
A few things that make me optimistic. First that the show is being developed by the CW home to one hour drama’s based on DC Comics, Smallville and the upcoming Arrow. Secondly the writer, Allan Heinberg, is not only familiar with the character but seems to like her. This is quite different that the last writer David E. Kelley who came in cold and never seemed to get her.
There is also another significant difference. The Kelley Wonder Woman was a fully formed hero in the pilot in fact there was not origin story at all. You got bits and pieces of her background but the first time you see the character she is in full superhero mode. The Heinberg pilot reportedly takes a “Smallville” approach of focusing on the characters younger years and will focus on her origins. I think it is fair to speculate you may be getting a show where there is less emphasis on costumes and special effects and more on action and interpersonal relationships.
I would like nothing more than a great TV show starring Wonder Woman but I also think that there are some things that Warner Bros. and the CW can learn from the fustercluck of the NBC Wonder Woman pilot and the success of Arrow.
1. Don’t screw up the costume. More than the not great leaked script, more than the fact that David E. Kelly is a divisive writer, the release of the first image of the new Wonder Woman costume put an incredibly negative spin on the pilot. It wasn’t just that it was a radical retake on the costume, Jim Lee had already done so in comics, it was that it was a dramatically change costume poorly presented in a horribly lit picture. The original sketch was not nearly as bad. As I showed with a little bit of color change and some added chest straps it could have worked but that first image just set the wrong tone.
Contrast this with how release of the first Arrow picture:
Now to be fair, the Green Arrow costume isn’t the same cultural touchstone that Wonder Woman’s is but the way this image is shot is about a million times better. The Wonder Woman costume debacle was so bad they ended up changing the costume before the first footage was shot and then tried to fix the whole mess by bringing back the original costume.
Allan Heinberg is the most promising thing I’ve heard about this so far.
