Sizzling Art

Mike Deodato is an excellent contemporary panel artist who revitalized a couple of female characters back in the 90s, Wonder Woman and Elektra. Below is a cool Marvel mini-poster of Elektra that I scored at a convention. But I compared it to the original art, and besides dropping Deodato's signature, it looks like the head has been modified slightly larger (seemingly more proportional). Wonder if that's something the artist did, or Marvel's promotional department. Anyway, a *sizzling* piece of art, from my point of view.

You're right, I hadn't noticed that. Also her spandex just above her right thigh has different lines of detail. This is like one of those spot the difference games.

I want in on this game. They removed her boot shadow from the poster.

Hey, good one.

also look at the cut of her outfit at her hip bone area, it's much lower in the poster version. i'm starting to wonder if the artist himself may have done a second version with all these changes?
