In the following tutorial, you will learn how to draw the Wonder Woman logo step by step.

The Wonder Woman insignia underwent several changes throughout the years. The original Wonder Woman logo with the golden eagle turned into the iconic Wonder Woman W logo in the 80s. More recently, the Wonder Woman emblem got a brand new design which keeps the composition of the Wonder Woman W logo, but with a three-dimensional look.

Once you've learned how to draw the Wonder Woman logo, you can head over to Envato Elements where you can get unlimited downloads of stock videos, music, graphics, photos, fonts, and much more. This superhero mascot could be a good addition to your Wonder Woman logo.

1. How to Create a New Document and Set Up a Grid

Hit Control-N to create a new document in Adobe Illustrator. Select Pixels from the Units drop-down menu, set the Width to 850 px and the Height to 700 px, and then click that Advanced Options button. Select RGB for the Color Mode and set the Raster Effects to Screen (72 ppi), and then click Create.

Enable the Grid (View > Show Grid or Control-") and Snap to Grid (View > Snap to Grid or Shift-Control-"). You will need a grid every 5 px, so simply go to Edit > Preferences > Guides & Grid, enter 5 in the Gridline every box and 1 in the Subdivisions box. Try not to get discouraged by all that grid—it will make your work easier, and keep in mind that you can easily enable or disable it using the Control-" keyboard shortcut.

You should also open the Info panel (Window > Info) for a live preview with the size and position of your shapes. Don't forget to set the unit of measurement to pixels from Edit > Preferences > Units. All these options will significantly increase your work speed. Now that you're set, let's learn how to draw the Wonder Woman logo.

2. How to Create the W Path

Step 1

Pick the Line Tool (\) from your Toolbar and then focus on the color settings. Press Shift-X to easily swap the default black and white color settings, and then make sure that the fill is active and remove the color.

Move to your artboard and simply create a 140 px horizontal path. Hold down the Shift key as you click and drag to easily create this horizontal line. Keep in mind that you can have a look at the Info panel to know exactly when you get to 140 px.

Make sure that your line stays selected and go to Object > Path > Add Anchor Points twice.
