Evolution of a drawing

(1) Thumbnail sketch for the annual "Wonder Woman Day" charity auction.
(2) Full size sketch, partially inked one day while bored.
(3) Second draft full size sketch; I felt first draft didn't fill the space quite right.
(4) Final inked drawing; traced to Bristol board via the light table. Changed face from sketch as she looked too light-hearted for capture of a Nazi SS man.

In (2) you see a pencil sketch of a monkey, which was a bit of a joke. I'd heard the best-selling comic books have either featured Nazis or monkeys on their covers.
