Back-cover art for the Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox DVD/Blu-Ray releasing July 30th. The layout was based off a very rough sketch by another artist. I suspect I know who it was. I'll update once I get confirmation.
I'm a big fan of DC's new 52, especially Justice League by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, its fantastic! ...and I thought it would be fun to do an homage to the classic Jim Lee cover for X-men #1 featuring the members of the Justice League.
Let me know what you think!

Not my best art but perhaps my personal favorite composition to date. My editor's only requirement was that I couldn't explicitly show Batman's first generation costume which certainly made this assignment a tricky puzzle to work out. Had a lot of fun with this one.
In this Zero Year storyline, Batman is just starting his crime-fighting career and having to deal with a Gotham City in blackout prior to a major storm; lots of police zeppelins cruising the sky on lookout. The negative space the city and Batman are framing is a more abstract nod to the villain's name and looming danger ahead.
This is a Justice League Commission that I did over the weekend. The composition was based on the Michael Turner cover for Justice League of America #12, with updated costumes for Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg.
Had to be done reasonably quickly due to a late scheduling change. Using an older layout for another Batgirl cover I was working on months ago and then plugging the new costume was my pragmatic solution to make this deadline. My only gripe is that I wish I had the time to set this piece aside for a few days so I could see the mistakes with fresh eyes, because right now my eyes are very fresh and I see a few things I would definitely like to change. No time this time unfortunately.
And don't ask me to explain the costume because I'm sworn to secrecy. Or maybe it's because I'm too lazy to answer. Either way, you get nothing from me
