Old School Wonder Woman


Had a ton of fun doing this. Probably the easiest, funnest coloring job I've ever done. Found a good tutorial on how to get this coloring effect here.

I didn't follow his instructions EXACTLY, but I used a lot of his ideas to accomplish this look. Always wanted to learn how to color things like they're old comics, but always thought it would be too hard. It's totally not! It's way easy! If only I could color everything this way.

Happy Birthday Melissa! Have fun at Disneyland without me. :( (sniff, sniff)

HOLY CRAP!!! This really is one of the coolest Wonder Woman images ever!!!! GREAT JOB! Totally old school!!! You ARE amazing!!!

Are you working on any big projects now? Can't wait to see some new work!

Lauren said...

Green Lantern is in the works currently and should be ready for release sometime near the San Diego Comic Con. It's looking really nice. I'll start posting stuff as soon as it gets released.

I wasn't sure if you were working on GL!! Nice! I'll have to pick it up. I won't go crazy waiting for it since he is not Wonder Woman but I loved Wonder Woman so much that I'll be sure to buy a copy! Anything to support these great movies!! You're a freakin talent my friend!

Question...are you an Aquaman fan?

Heck yeah.
I love me some Aquaman.

Chris Battle said...

HA! Spot on & too cool :)

... and when does Aquaman get his DTV movie?? (Now that he's back in the public eye on B&B and all...)

Lauren said...

Mike, the tutorial should be linked from the blog entry.

Chris, we're both waiting on something that will never happen.... unless some sort of miracle takes place.

Great work, Lauren, as always. I just saw a trailer for Green Lantern too. It looks incredible.

Incidentally, I have a friend who would like to get into animation. Any suggestions for her? Think I could talk to you about it as well? email me. aquachef13@hotmail.com

Hey Lauren,

I frequent your blog now alot. I had to see what else you had to show since I saw Wonder Woman ( amazing by the way), I'd love to see some rough work if you could ever post some. I always like to see the tought process and how an artist starts and works out what they have to reach the final product.

anyways, hope to see more and love your work!

Wow. You're really good. And you're even better than before - which is an incredible feat.

Hey, Lauren,

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Wonder Woman animated film, particularly from a design sense. You made a thrilling movie and did the princess proud, and for that you have my thanks!

Very best wishes, and I love the retro WW sketch,

Gail Simone

Great Illustration. Also,I saw the WW movie at the NY Comic-Con. It played great on the big screen and just as well on the small screen.

You're a great director. Here is to more features.
