After 1-1/2 years, this piece is finally complete! In 2006, I researched, penciled and inked this illustration depicting Wonder Woman and Diana Prince in her most definitive costumes since 1941. A comprehensive history of Wonder Woman's look hasn't been done since George Perez's 1990's poster, and even then it wasn't approached from the original artists' styles. Over the past few months, Kevenn T. Smith and I have been working on the colors in Photoshop. Between my drawing and his color expertise, we produced this result.

Almost every definitive version of Diana that has appeared in the comic book and other media is in this drawing, drawn by me but based on the original artists' artwork: H.G. Peter, George Perez, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Mike Deodato, Phil Jimenez, Terry Dodson, Jose Delbo, Ross Andru, Irv Novick, Curt Swan, Don Heck, Gene Colan, Jill Thompson, Mike Sekowsky, Alex Toth, Bruce Timm, and Darwyn Cooke. In addition, I included the Lynda Carter and Cathy Lee Crosby versions of Wonder Woman because no true history of Diana would be complete without them. Earth-2 Wonder Woman is based on Lynda Carter since there really isn't a definitive depiction of her. Lynda Carter (including her Diana Prince and the motorcycle outfit), Cathy Lee Crosby, and Earth-2 are in my art style and not based on another artists' work.
