2008 Mark Texeira Wonder Woman Commission

Click To Enlarge

One of my longtime favorite artists and characters, though not a combination I always enjoy. Tex has a particular take on women that's a bit too-- what's the word I'm looking for-- '80s hair metal whore-- to suit the heroine's superheroine. Here though, I love Diana's slight smile and gentle, realistic (referenced?) face. She's also got those thick, well muscled Harry Peter legs, and isn't especially eroticised or stand-offish. A damned nice piece, offering a Wonder Woman with more human spirit than most. My girlfriend printed this out and taped it to a filing cabinet she surrendered to me, along with other art, so it's become a fixture of my blogging workspace.
