Alex Ross does modern day Wonder Woman!!

I never thought I'd live to see the day when Alex Ross would paint anything but his own personal version of Wonder Woman. But I made it!!
He did it on the cover for the Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Kollector's Edition video game:
Too bad he couldn't have been bothered to do this costume for the cover of JUSTICE LEAGUE of AMERICA #12. I so would've bought that poster...

Here's a video from Comic Book Resources that shows, in time lapse, Alex creating the artwork. It's interesting to note: The couple of times that the art/photo reference is shown for Wonder Woman, the picture is blurred out. I didn't notice that on any of the others. Things that make you go hmmm...

  1. Yeah, I like that new look for Wondy. And I always did love Ross's paintings of Hal Jordan. Ross's Hal is sooooooo PRETTY. *Sigh.* :-)

    How the HELL did you catch that? It just now took me six solid minutes of jump-clicking back and forth thru this clip just to see what you were talking about.

  3. Well, AI, I'm a WW fanatic for one...

    I started watching the clip, not expecting to watch more than a few seconds because I thought it would be boring. But I found it actually to be sort of facsinating.
    Then, I noticed all the photo-refs he was using as he was going along. Since he had painted (what I thought at the time was) the Terry Dodson costume, I was keeping my eye out to see what the photo-refs for WW would look like. And they were blurred out!!
    I didn't notice any after that, and really didn't go back to check and see if any previously had been done, but none had caught my eye.

  6. well, unfortunately you seem to be a fan of Wonder Woman's ugly, inelegant 21st century costume.
