New Amanda Waller fan art from Trinidad & Tabago
Here we have some new fan art from a lovely and talented young lady from the twin island Caribbean nation of Trinidad & Tobago. As you can see this piece exemplifies well the principles of good figure drawing in terms of proportions, perspective and composition. She also has a distinctive style to her work which is almost as important as a good understanding of the principles of illustration. Take a moment to view some of her other work: http://sodaesketchbox.blogspot.com/ This was her reply when asked how she came about doing a rendering of Amanda Waller.
"I got to like Waller from DCUO- a PC game. I haven't seen the GL movie, Bassett seemed like the best physical reference I was interested in using. Since most versions of her seem to be different, I assumed that maybe it was a Hollywood image move, placing Bassett in the film. Yet, I wasn't really interested in the movie per se, just an image I came across that I could work with to portray the voice that I liked in DCUO. Not too asexual and yet not too comic-female-stereotype. That's what I was aiming for."
