Cosplay Friday: The Justice League

Fri Mar 27, 2015, 10:48 AM
Img-og by techgnotic

The next couple of years promises to be full of comic book superheroes no matter where your allegiance falls in the DC/Marvel divide.

Following in The Avengers’ big screen footsteps, the Justice League of America (JLA) is finally getting its own live-action movie, even though the Justice League came along way before The Avengers were even born. A quick stroll down comic book lane reveals how the JLA got its start and unintentionally lead to some of Marvel’s most successful superhero teams.

The first team of superheroes in the history of comics was the Justice Society of America (JSA) who appeared in DC Comics All Star Comics #3 in 1940.

The original team included Doctor Fate, Hour-Man, the Spectre, the Sandman, the Atom, the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman. DC Comics had a rule that whenever a JSA member received his own comic book title the character would leave All Star Comics and would become an “honorary member” of the JSA. This is why already independent Batman and Superman didn’t appear in the series, being automatic honorary members even though they weren’t present for the founding of the JSA. The comic had a good run, but after WWII there was a decline in the popularity of superheroes. It seems the golden age of the superhero ended when DC opted to stop publishing more JSA adventures and rebranded the title All-Star Westerns (which didn't include a single superhero).

It wasn’t until 1979 that any explanation for the team’s disappearance after the early 1950s was provided when it was revealed in The Defeat of the Justice Society! (Adventure Comics #466) that the JSA chose to disband and retire rather than present themselves unmasked in front of the Joint Un-American Activities Committee as demanded.

The death of the JSA lead to the birth of the Justice League of America (JLA) when in the late 1950s DC Comics’ editor Julius Schwartz asked writer Gardner Fox to reinvent the JSA. Schwartz, due to the popularity of Major League Baseball’s National and American Leagues, asked Fox to change the team’s name to the Justice “League.” The JLA made its debut with a whole new team in March 1960 in The Brave and the Bold #28 and quickly gained popularity, leading to their own series which became one of DC Comics’ best-selling titles.

During a round of golf, DC publisher Jack Liebowitz bragged to Marvel owner Martin Goodman about how well the new Justice League series was selling which prompted Goodman, knowing himself how popular the JLA was becoming, to ask his editor Stan Lee to create a superhero team for Marvel. The result was the Fantastic Four. The next Marvel team to follow prompted by the Justice League’s success was The Avengers. You can thank DC comics for spawning the dawn of the superhero team — but, ironically, in Marvel Comics!

Casting rumors continue to swirl as Warner Brother’s The Justice League movie moves closer and closer to production, but no need to wait until the movie’s release in 2017 to see your fave Justice Leaguers in the flesh. Thanks to these DeviantArt superheroes you can see the full league in all their live-action glory. These cosplayers join their collective superpowers to bring you a superheroic extravaganza!

The real test of honor isn’t how you die, it’s how you live.”

— Superman

In Brightest Day, In Darkest Night, No Evil shall escape My Sight. Let those who worship Evil’s Might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s Light!”

— Green Lantern

[Hovering above the ground by spinning his arms] Hey ladies, check me out! I’m just like a helicopter! [Loses balance and crashes to the ground] I’m sorta like a helicopter…”

— Flash

Next time I let Superman take charge, just hit me. Real hard.”

— Batman

It’s faith, Hawkgirl. You’re not supposed to understand it. You just have it.”

— Aquaman

I’m used to being thanked when I save someone.”

— Hawkgirl

I am Diana, Princess of the Amazons! I won’t be denied!”

— Wonder Woman

Beware of Some Tutorials...

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 14, 2013, 6:24 AM

   This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.

  I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.

 I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
 Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

 I think artists should be very careful and responsible when it comes to making these things. They attract the masses of very young, beginner artists, who follow them just because the user who made it is better than they are- and they are usually better because they are NOT 13 years old. Then these beginner artists get set on a path of terrible habits, trying to emulate someone who needs training themselves.
  I've seen tutorial in how to draw say, women- but the user creating it has no sense of anatomy or structure. And they get legions of people praising them for being so amazing to share o_O. Or how to paint hair, when the user creating it paints it like a pile of overly-exposed (hands taped to the dodge and burn function) spaghetti.
  Face tutorials when the facial features don't even line up with each other. Of course, sheet after sheet of eyes. Eyes eyes eyes. When the artist can't draw hands, or bodies. But they'll teach you how to paint eyes?
  A lot of these artist who create these things are way more popular than I am, I know ( so who am I to say anything?). On Deviantart, many time, popularity =/= skill. Sometimes people who are very skilled are popular, and that's awesome. But I must admit, I've seen uber popular deviants and I can't comprehend why :o . Then I look at their galleries and its full of nothing but terribly done tutorials and 500 faces of girls o_o.

 Again, if that's what makes them happy to draw, that's cool.  I just believe one should be pretty damn knowledgeable and skilled before they create a drawing/painting tutorial training others who are looking to be set on the right path. I won't make one until I feel I've reached a certain point of skill and ease of doing things- and I think users and learning artists should be very discriminating with the tutorials they choose to learn from here on DA ( there are a few excellent tutorials too! But there's a lot of bad ones).
  Otherwise, it's like haphazardly teaching someone to ride a bike but you put them in stiletto heels. and make the back wheel square. You're handicapping them from the start.
 Just because anyone can make a tutorial doesn't mean they should.

 Just because someone on DA is popular, does not mean they are skilled enough to train others.

 Yeahhhh just be careful.

 And I mean, of course draw what makes you happy. These are just my personal thoughts on it :/. That people should be careful and selective.


 I've had a hard time lately believing in myself art wise lately. I've never really been one of these people who have had a lot of confidence in what they do :o. I've always been a personality type where all I do is zero in on flaws and mistakes and proceed to beat myself up for them. This makes it difficult to produce art work as fast as I think i should, because I meticulously look over every teensy part of a painting. I've also been feeling really foggy and dizzy lately whenever I wake up. It lasts for hours in the morning and doesn't go away until early afternoon x_X.

 I think I should go to a doctor and get my blood tested. But I'm terrified of needles >_<.

This group focuses on encouraging artists.

Another feature of amazing artworks from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy and be inspired by. The submissions have been of a very high standard and I already have enough for next month's feature.  Our membership is now over 3,170 and our galleries as I always write, contains even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing.

The primary focus of this group continues to be digital painting and digital drawing, which should be submitted to the 'Featured 5' folder. This group also accepts and has folders for animation, designs and interfaces, deviantWEAR, pixel art and pixel animation, vector and vexel artworks, comic strips, pages and panels, matte painting, mature content, mixed media, mixed media - 3D, 3D art, commission information, tutorials and resources, announcements and also wallpaper submissions.
As always, I would like to congratulate the members on the continuing high quality of their artworks, which are always a pleasure for me to accept.

About our group

While it is understood that digital art is digital art in general this group primarily highlights art from:
:bulletpink: Digital Painting/Airbrushing
:bulletpink: Digital Drawings
:bulletpink: Digital Mixed Media
:bulletpink: Digital Miscellaneous

Please understand that if you are a member submitting a photomanipulation, fractal, typography or traditional artworks, while I respect your work,  I will regretfully decline it because this is not what this group is showcasing. If an artwork is declined, I will always send a message explaining why.

Artworks containing nudity must be tasteful and have artistic merit. Full frontal nudity is rarely accepted, nor are sexually explicit and sexually immoral artworks or those containing an excess of crude language. Having said this there can be exceptions but my decision will take into consideration the high number of young members in this group.

If you submit mixed media, and stock is used, it must be minimal, preferably in the background , with the majority of the artwork digitally painted or drawn, or I will regretfully decline it.  In most cases, if  I really love the image, I will add it to my personal favourites as I frequently do.

Some more of our wonderful submissions in no particular order:
