Wonder Woman New52 Costume by MarcOuellette Wonder Woman New52 Costume by MarcOuellette
Given an artist battle and yet another Wonder Woman costume I've yet to try drawing I figured I'd give the new one a shot. I will begrudgingly admit that compared to the Odyssey suit this is an improvement... how much of one I'll leave to WW's actual fan base to decide and go back to trying to understand why Superman needs knee pads and if drawing that much detail makes the bat suit look better or worse...

ooo. I like the addition of the stars on the corset and pants. It's a cool blend between the new and traditional one

it's not my design (i believe it's Jim Lee's) but thanks for the comment.

Aw really? Cuz I enjoy fresh starts! Although I went onto DC's site and I really hope Superboy doesn't look as emotionless as the pictures do. But I'm looking forward to the teen titans. Kid Flash and Wonder Girl's new costumes look amazing!

yeah I've just spent 5 years following a batman story that apparently isn't getting finished because of the reboot, they've done so much stuff to Superman he's barely the character I read, (kents are both dead, even more isolated alien boy, not married etc etc). I just don't see the point in relaunching except to try and get those ever elusive "new readers"

I'll be doing some pretty intensive looking at my pull list come september i think but I definitely think my DC read list os gonna get shorter rather than longer. I haven't felt this much like dropping a series since they broke up Spidey and MJ over at Marvel.

I haven't really read any Marvel unless you count a few issues of Werewolf by Night from the 1990's! lol

But yeah my expectations will be kinda moderate since I'm usually wary of reboots, but they do look interesting. Supergirl will probably be better because it's specualted she's now more powerful than Superman and she won't be as nice!

there's some quality stuff coming out of marvel these days and while my gallery (i hope) is fairly balanced between the big two as I'd love to work for either company as a reader the past 10 years have been a heavily Marvel dominated time for me. Especially now that goofy stuff I loved as a little kid is back, being taken seriously and part of the mainstream (whoever thought of putting iron fist and luke cage on an avengers team deserves a massive raise)

I intend to be aware of the reboot and read reviews and sample some stuff more liberally than i used to but for the most part it feels ham fisted and poorly planned, but I remain optimistic, cause more success for the industry means more titles and more chances for me to break in.

Yeah it'll be easier to comprehend since I can start from the very beginning. :)

yeah, I dont know why that jacket bothers me. I was really examining it, and it was kinda cool, but mostly, it was just wrong. It just doesnt fit. Not WW enough, I suppose. But this looks really good

It bothered me me cause it wasn't wonder woman. it's the same as why the superman image they're using for action comics relaunch with supes in jeans doesn't work. the iconography is ruined when you do stuff like that. They're larger than life heroes, why does she need a jacket? is she cold suddenly? No she doesn't get cold (maybe she does but she still wouldn't wear a leather jacket)

I dunno I could go on forever and not make any sense. Thanks for the comment and digging the piece.

no, you make perfect sense. I tried to play devil's advocate and tried to get their point of view. Black Canary and Rogue both have leather jackets and they look great in them, but at the end of the day, Wonder Woman is Wonder Woman, and she was perfect the way she was. I understand little changes here and there, as her costume has changed from the original, a bit, but I think it was too much for me, and alot of other people. Your take on it is pretty good though. It's not too much and I think she looks good. But Superman in jeans? They did that?

Black Canary and Rogue (both characters I'm more fond of then I've ever been of WW) are far more modern characters who don't have the iconic kind of oomph behind them. Also, Black Canary is frequently seen traipsing about on a motorcycle so leather makes sense. the 90's Rogue leotard and leather jacket thing was also designed by Jim Lee so maybe he just has a thing. Most costumes Rogues had since are way better/more suited to her character.

As for Jeans on the Man of Steel, yeah if you check any articles about DC Comics fall relaunch the image associated with Action Comics (i think) is supes in jeans and a tshirt with the S shield. weird decision.

Actually I like the '90 FOX version better because of how practical it was for Rogue, it fit her character MUCH BETTER than many of her newer costumes.

i like the no powers hood and robe Rogue look myself, always found the cartoon/90's design a bit finnicky to draw. much prefer the simplers lines.

See I personally dig this interpretation MORE than the comic faithful one as you took that hideous bloody jacket off of her. I have to admit I'm not the biggest WW fan in the world but from an aesthetic point of view this really works. Good stuff.

This is the new costume, (again a new costume) to go along with DC's fall relaunch/reboot/whatever it is. I agree the jacket gone helps it since it isn't that big a move from the last suit, but the jacket was a mistake they seem to have amended.
