As some of you know, who have read my earlier posts, I had the chance, opportunity, and good fortune to obtain some original Gil Kane work directly from the man himself. Here is another original sketch preliminary, this one for Wonder Woman # 303. The series of Kane covers shown below is a high point in the DC history of graphics, relying on a good sense of graphic design as well as comic illustration.
The preliminary is, obviously, a mirror image of the final art, but interestingly, Wonder Woman's hand didn't translate very well to the final art, in my opinion ending up being out of scale and weakly drawn.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
