EGoD won the last contest and is MIA, presumably tending to real world affairs (or maybe non-real world affairs... really, I'm guessing here). To keep the contests rolling out, I'm posting the next contest in his absence.

And so I present... Costume Contest# 78: WONDER WOMAN

A major character missing from past re-design contests, Wonder Woman's past costumes have sometimes be met with fan rage. Jackets and jumpsuits. Pants or bikini bottoms. Choker or armor. Whatever you think makes for a great and iconic interpretation for the Amazon Princess.

Deadline: October 19th @ midnight (Eastern)

@shatterstar - can you please pin this?

Post your artwork on whatever the subject of the thread is; art must be created within the time-frame of the contest and the guidelines set up by the thread's poster. Once the time limit on the thread expires a voting thread is posted that lasts for a day or three, whoever gets the most votes wins and gets to start the next contest thread. Anyone can enter their art, anyone can vote in the voting threads.

@shatterstar: ok cool... So if I'm understanding this thread topic, the idea with these ones is to draw wonder woman, but in an original costume design?

#8 Posted by redscare (431 posts) - - Show Bio

@wishiwassuperman - That's correct. You're putting your own spin on Wonder Woman. And the art has to be original.

Thank you kindly! I wanted to go for a look that read "warrior" but without doing it in a way that looked too much like the other ways I've seen it.

Here's my Wonder Woman design

I'm planning on doing so if school work doesn't congest all of my available time.

What's stopping you?

#24 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

@armiv2: the quality of work submitted... You guys are doing just awesome stuff, won't even be a competition. Might still post what i've been working on, just outside of the comp.

#25 Posted by redscare (431 posts) - - Show Bio

@wishiwassuperman - Look at it as a showcase and not a competition. Your work may see more traffic on the contest thread and inspire someone else... you never know. Personally, I hope you'll post something here.

Well I still wanna see what you do here. One big thing I learned about art and design and stuff is that it if it is supposed to be capturing an idea, which for this contest would be a new outfit for a very iconic character, it really isn't so much that it looks like the best thing ever, but that the thing as a whole "speaks" what you were aiming for.

#27 Posted by WIshIWasSuperman (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

@armiv2: @redscare: I appreciate the encouragement guys, one of the best things about this part of the forum. If I can get it done I time I'll probably put it in. Thing is I'm something of a perfectionist, so if I don't absolutely love something I do (or just don't think it's passable) I tend to just scrap the entire thing. But I'll see how it goes. There's still 8 or 9 days left right, so hopefully I can finish off what I wanted to do in time.

@wishiwassuperman: Hey man steel sharpens steel. I have been at this for over 30 years and I am still never satisfied with my stuff. What I have found on this site is, win or lose, you get exposure and feedback. You also see takes that other artists have and grow from the experience of participating in the community (as an artist and a person). The exposure helps make it easier to share your stuff and the feedback (from artists and non-artists) is usually (there are some jerks) helpful. I look forward to seeing your stuff.

damn this is going to be a tough voting period, so many cool entries!

#41 Posted by ARMIV2 (8279 posts) - - Show Bio

I just wish I had the time to color my entry.

#42 Edited by redscare (431 posts) - - Show Bio

@armiv2 - I won't be able to post the voting thread until tomorrow afternoon... so if you can slap some color that before then...

In fact, anyone that adds an entry by 3pm eastern tomorrow I'll add to the voting thread. My Kindle isn't the best for posting the vote stuff and I'm on the road right now.

Tomorrow. 3PM Eastern.

#43 Posted by redscare (431 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, beautiful entries everyone... you guys really came through for this one!

Then I'm gonna have to get some of this modeling stuff done and try a last minute color job.
