DC character sketches

Hi, here are a couple sketches of two of DC's most famous characters.

You may see Wonder Woman’s not wearing her usual shield. I once read that the Ancient Greeks liked to paint a Gorgon head on their shields to mock their enemies. Now, considering that they also displayed it in temples or on coins, it might have a totally different meaning –associated with “dynamic life energy” or “to scare the owner from doing something wrong”, Wikipedia says. I like the idea of mocking enemies though, so I decided to use this symbol.

I added a traditional old paper look to the drawings for aesthetic purposes but they were drawn digitally. I thought it’d be a nice touch.
