View Full Version : Wonder Woman Painting
01-03-2007, 11:51 AM
The painting was inspired by a Wonder Woman coffee mug and is a gift for my wife's birthday. I haven't finished adding all of the final touches and am debating on whether or not to add a border or leave it white. It is acrylic on canvas and is 22x28. Any crits or comments would be appreciated.
Yay for painting! :bounce:
Why did you choose to crop it that way? Theres an empty blue field tot he left and she's crowded into the right.
Her hand is cut off at the wrist and because we can't see her clothes she looks nekkid.

Thanks for the reply...I was going for a pop art style, and they usually went for a bit of a close up shot. I know that she appears 'nekkid' but my wife doesn't seem to mind. I am still debating about what to do with the top left corner as well.
Here is an older painting I did for a friend's son, it was for Christmas last year. He was getting some new Star Wars bedding and she wanted it to look just like the Yoda on his comforter. I can't do anything to it as he has it on his wall but crits and comments would still be good.

Apart from the cropping, the finish is really nice. Definitely made me think of pop art.
Was the cropping your choice or similar to what was on the coffee mug?

Sevans: Thanks for the comment, the cropping was similar to the mug but it did show more of the torso as well. I wanted the image to be large but I also wanted to go with a landscape orientation as opposed to a portrait which is why I cut so much off.
Evolver: Thanks, my wife is big fan of Pop Art more Roy Lichtenstein than Andy Warhol.

Ver pop art-ish, very nice, crisp, clean work. Well done, I'm sure your wife loved it.

Paul: She did love it and now the only thing we're trying to figure out is where to hang it. Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, that piece does look better IRL. He did a great job though, and I definetly appreciated a handmade thoughtful gift like that.
