One of my favourite scenes in the movie… Diana has just climbed the ladder into no-man’s land and is about to start her run at the German trenches. I adore all the meanings and symbolisms in this scene… she’s just cast off her disguise as a ‘normal’ woman, making her debut onto the stage of the ‘normal’ world of warring, idiot males… stunning the crap out of all the nearby, ‘normal’ males… she’s climbed into seemingly certain death… the scene as she climbs the ladder is a stunner, her rising into her true place… now she’s feeling the rightness of her decision, and beginning to bound into fabulous, gorgeous action… leaving all the ‘strong’ men floundering in her wake, and having to follow her as she clears the way. Love it to bits!
Brave, young, naieve, idealistic Diana, thinks her sword is the Godslayer… she doesn’t, yet, realise… she is the Godslayer (:
Finished! Awesome Diana of Themyscira, choosing to climb into no-mans land, against staggering odds, in order to save some people she’s never met (:
Fabulous Diana of Themyscira choosing protecting the little people…
My next Diana painting (: This is the scene where she is in the trenches, and decides she needs to cross no-mans land to rescue the villagers… she takes off her disguise, much to the astonishment of the beaten-down soldiers, and heads for the ladder that will take her into the action… and, also, into the best scene in the whole film… which I will paint next (:
Finished! Here is little Diana of Themyscira (Wonder Woman), on a horse with her mum, Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons (:
Almost done! As you can see, I did some more work on mum’s hair, and have done most of the job of finishing little-miss-adorable (: Still a few hours to go on her, and there’s still a bit to fix on mum, too, but we’re almost there. I’m very pleased with this, I don’t often do double portraits (:
