Here’s week 3 of the Cartoon Craziness Challenge. The theme was superhero. Click “week 3” to learn more. Thanks to the hosts of this challenge, I love to have an excuse to doodle.
Superheroes are a big thing over here. Hubby loves them (especially the DC Universe). I decided to draw Wonder Woman. I had to use one of hubby’s action figures to help since Wonder Woman’s proportions are a little different from my usual cartoons! Excuse the left over eraser bit by her elbow. I was too lazy to scan it again.
Why Wonder Woman? She is one of the few females in a male-dominated superhero universe. Since she is a demigod, it makes sense that she has superpowers. She can fly with her magic boots and drive an invisible plane. She also has good morals, i.e. the “lasso of truth” which makes her a good role model and although she has questionable fashion sense, she is smokin’ hot!
I also decided I’d attempt to draw myself as a superhero. If I were a superhero, I’d want to be able to fly and be strong, like Superman, but also clever and crafty like Batman and be built like Wonder Woman. It wouldn’t hurt to be a demigod either. I’d go with a Steampunk costume that has a utility belt to hold all my Steampunk gadgets. My cat, Ewok, would be my superkitty sidekick.
