WonderWoman UK Ambasador by TheBoo WonderWoman UK Ambasador by TheBoo
Thanxx for the help Gail :)

Nice little quickie as a gift to Gail Simone who helped me out recently

It's a current plot point that WonderWomans costume is designed to represent the country she is visiting... so my theory is that she would get a cool new outfit when she comes over to the United Kingdom :P
I left the star on her Tiara because i think thats more of an "amazon" thing than a USA thing since stars are so universally used.

EDIT- Forgot to mention i blasted this up so quickly i didnt take the time to clean it lol

"In her satin tights, fighting for our rights..."

I definitely like the idea of her costume changing to fit the country she's in!

I wonder if it ever makes political statements? If she goes to Tibet, does it turn into a Tibetan or Chinese flag? What about a trip to Kashmir? Or in a dictatorship like Burma, does the costume go on strike and WW just wears white? The possibilites are endless.

I hope you don't mind, but I slapped a little color on this for practice: [link]

It was fun to color, you're a great artist. And I love how you post your art in High-Res.

I adore your "flat work" SO much. The colors are always gorgeous no doubt. But it's the flat's that have real raw appeal and emotion about them.

Sweet bangers and mash sir - that's a cool design for her :clap: I'm wondering if she'd adopt the accent while she was there too ;)

in the comics and the recent cartoon film they mentioned that her costume now reflects whichever nation she is visiting... so i played with the idea of her visiting the best country in the world :P

Okay, that's sexy, by like a lot.


I loved Donna Troy's Wonder Woman costume, it had less of that "GO USA!" look. Loving your more subdued use of the Union Jack in this version.

Interesting idea, I must say. It's always nice to see how modern writers bring in their own ideas to explain certain elements to a well-established character that wouldn't make sense otherwise.

This one should definately get coloured... Mind if I take a crack at it? All credits due, of course.

Oh, Gail Simone is the current writer for Wonder Woman, isn't she?

It's a well done image.
There was something about Wonder Woman's outfit that always bugged me. For a culture that hated men and had been isolated for eons. Why was it her uniform was decidedly American in design and not very Greek at all? Don't EVEN get me started on the invisible jet.

As it is established in current continuity, the colors and design was chosen in honor of the woman who helped the Amazons in their time of need: Diana Trevor, a courrier pilot who was working for the American gov't when she crashed on Paradise Island. So, the Amazons honored Diana by adopting "her" colors: the good 'ole red, white and blue. Now, if Diana Trevor was a UK citizen, then you'll have the Boo design (which is awesome, btw). In fact, I hope Boo expands on the idea, by doing a "What if...", selecting a few designs based upon the colors of other nations...

yeah she is

The Celts and Greeks etc were proud and used to fighting naked, it leaves you much more free to move, dodge etc, and dont forget that it was often a BIG fashion in greece during that period to leave your breasts bare naked...
so the actual shape and design of Wonderwomans costume i dont have a problem with.... the crazy americaness was over the top, but it fits if you think that her costume changes depending on which country she is visiting

She's getting a lot of credit for reviving the Wonder Woman series.

It just didn't feel like Greek armor. I understand why it was designed the way it was. She was a WWII era kind of character that fought the Nazis.
Britain doesn't get a whole lot of love in the super hero department. Captain Britain's series was canceled, I heard.

Emma Frost has a British accent, though her family is from Boston. She absorbs the knowledge of a Brit that was teaching her to use her powers, but he betrayed her. Her skill was raw at the time and absorbed the pattern of speech. It wasn't like a Madonna thing.
Psylocke is a British woman's mind in an Asian woman's body.

yeah Captain Britain and MI13 was cancelled, but i think that was due to people like me not reading it anymore, the writing just wasnt powerful enough to contend with Avengers and X-men titles

Emma Frost is a fad lol but i think Psylocke is really doing it for the Brits... time for Wonderwoman to come over here.

the problem with most comics that feature British hero's and heroines is they get over camped and made into a funny book, there isnt the real action and grit people like

Hey now, Emma is my favorite X-Men character.

Yeah, most British heroes seem to lean toward Benny Hill.
