Poll Winner - Princess Diana by Femmes-Fatales Poll Winner - Princess Diana by Femmes-Fatales
I asked you all to pick your favourite fictional princess from a list of characters that included the likes of Princess Peach and Princess Serenity, and the winner of the poll ended up being Princess Diana of Themiscyra AKA Wonder Woman.

As the majority of you know, Wonder Woman is a character I absolutely adore and she's a character I hold close to my heart so I'm rather happy that she won. Of course, I was extra happy since it allowed me to draw a different side of her -- as a Princess! I had fun drawing this dress on her and while I'm not too happy about how her face came out I think the drawing looks decent as a whole. Although, I should note that the dress itself is inspired by something I saw on a Tonner Doll of Wonder Woman. It *may* have been a custom outfit.

Thank you. :) I'm so glad people have enjoyed seeing the softer side of Diana. It does seem to have gone over quite well.

It's a side she's not usually shown in. And I loved it, and most of her fans do too, so it's obvious it would be taken this well :)
You're welcome

I would say that most of her truer fans love seeing her softer side. There does seem to be this misconception about Diana in that she's this ball-busting, violence-loving maniac who just can't wait to get into battle. It's odd since she's a diplomatic kind of character.

Most of us got into the character as a warrior, so maybe this odd misconception comes from newer fans and from those who just prefer her as a warrior. Once you get to know the character, you get to know there are many faces of her and that every single is amazing.

I imagine part of the misconception people have about Wonder Woman also springs from the fact that many of them are likely coming from the Justice League cartoon where her history and personality are essentially re-written making her into a different character. Diana is such a complex character and it is such a shame that a lot of people aren't aware of that. You either have the people who like her because she punches stuff or you have people who like her because she wears a revealing costume.

I myself basically got into comics because of the X-Men 90's cartoon series. I knew later about some DC characters but never went further. The JL cartoon made me want to know more and more, and I think I got to know Diana more (not as much as other people, though, or as much as I'd want to). I guess some people just stay on the cartoon part and that's completely understandable since not everyone likes comics. Those people still have that partial, not so accurate impression of Diana and they're not to blame.
The part that does bother me, though, is the part you mentioned. She's still sometimes not taken seriously enough because of her costume or her 'apparent' hot headed attitude :/

The '90s Batman cartoon and the X-Men cartoon are what got me into comics. However, what I picked up at that time was actually Catwoman's solo series and the occasional X-Men or Spider-Man comic (often the ones based off the cartoons). I had gotten into Wonder Woman very early on without the influence of any adaptations. I believe part of the reason why I was encouraged to pick up her comics was because my mom was familiar with the character from the '70s TV series. As such, I ended up with quite a few of the George Perez-era and the John Byrne-era comics as a kid.
