Wonder Woman vs. Ares by No-Sign-of-Sanity Wonder Woman vs. Ares by No-Sign-of-Sanity
This is the concept art I did for the Wonder Woman vs. Ares statue for DC Direct’s “Classic Confrontations" line of battle statues. The statue itself was sculpted by the crazy talented Jack Mathews and can be seen on DC Direct’s site here [link]

This line of statues is really fun to work on because it is a totally collaborative group effort where everyone gets to add their own flare to the piece and build on it as it goes along. My art director (Jim Fletcher) will give me his idea for the overall design of the piece and then my job is to flesh out the concept, and make it look cool. The sculptor (Jack Mathews) then uses my concept art as a basic guideline and creates the final piece adding his own details and design elements along the way. It’s really a wonderful way to work that brings out the best in everyone and I’m just thrilled to be a part of the team. Thanks Jim and Jack! =D

Most the time I'll take a couple of action figures and pose them together to work out the dynamic between them. Then I'll take some photo reference of myself in those poses and work from that. I'm too lazy to hire real models I just do it all myself with a camera on a timer. :)

Ares better watch out, Wonder Woman's gonna kick his ass.
Your pencils are amazing, this piece has so much movement! The shading is very soft for such an action-filled pose, it really tones down the sharpness of the rock and muscles, not to mention those creeper skeletons. Great job!

The actual statue lost a lot of the balance and movement that your drawing has. Too bad. Great work on your design.

The Wonder Woman animated film released a while ago was pretty badass though. It had everything I would ever want from a live action film. ;)

It was good, but rumorville has it
that bits of a proposed film script
were in this story, Warner Bros. nixed the original script as being too expensive! (Hmfff! I'll bet if it
was a Superman or Batman or even a
JLA flick they'ed be all over it!!
Women heroes still get no respect!!
