JLA CG Concepts - Wonder Woman by DanielAraya JLA CG Concepts - Wonder Woman by DanielAraya
A few weeks ago, just for fun I started doing concepts for a faux Justice League CG movie. I've always been a huge fan of Bruce Timm and the DC Timmverse he helped create, and I thought it would be cool to basically design the JLA movie that I would direct if given the chance. I didn't do any huge drastic changes because I didn't want to betray the characters in terms of who they are and what they're about. I just wanted to build on what's already been established and tweak things the way I saw them. I was going to wait until I had more artwork before I posted this, but with all the freelance I've got, I don't think I'll be able to work on this again for a while.

THIS IMAGE: I went with angry, warrior, man hating Wonder Woman. I feel like if you're raised your entire life immersed in bigotry, you're not just going to change your beliefs after a single adventure. It's not gonna be like "oh these guys fought with me to save the world, men aren't so bad." Nobody just drops prejudiced opinions like that, they skew and distort things to keep supporting and maintaining their discrimination. I feel like her acceptance of men would be a very slow, gradual thing and it would never be 100%. I was mostly inspired by Darwyn Cooke's design with some tweaks here and there where I thought it made more sense or would add some appeal.

Nice work and rationale behind the character.  Her gender bigotry is her Achilles heel.

I love how you interpret wonder woman to have a dislike in men. That gives her a charcter flaw which builds to a good story. Batmans would be his sociopathic behavior, supermans would be his distants away from humanity, and wonder womans (like you said) dislike to mens arrogance. If dc builds these characters arcs together in a movie or tv show, that would be amazing!

I LOVE this design of her! I kind of want to try modeling it, just to see--but I don't know if you'd be okay with that, haha.

Sure go for it. I just ask that you credit me for the design if you post it!

And I thought she was pissed because of her nappy hair.

Love the design and the shine on all the gold areas. She totally looks like she can kick some serious butt.
