Green Lantern- Shinobi Concept by Jarein Green Lantern- Shinobi Concept by Jarein
EDIT: Retooled the design. Gave it a more shinobi feel, instead of a fabric, spandex-y kind of look. Also replaced the sword construct with a reversed grip kunai.

Ive been on a big Green Lantern kick lately with all the cool new animated DVDs and the live action flick that have come out.

I got the idea for this "ninja-lantern", when I saw that Emerald Knights DVD, with that one lantern chick, Laira, rocking house with some pretty intense martial arts fighting. She definately stole the show for me.

If anything, my intent with this concept was to make a teenage Kyle Rayner AU character based around the Young Justice TV show version of Earth. The shinobi theme was more or less my idea that Kyle in this universe is an big anime fan that not only fuels his canonical artistic drive, but his ideas for constructs as well as his uniform design.

I also thught it would be cool to make the lantern a young rookie like Arisia- a teenage semi-sidekick lantern if you will. Also the Young Justice cartoon inspired that train of thought. Those kids really could use a teenage Rayner to fill out the roster.

The long scarf was a leap of faith. I stylized the lantern chest emblem to be unique while following the basic structure and layout of the baseline Green Lantern Corp. insignia (the narrow structure of it was inspired by the other insignias for the other colored lanterns). I went with a half mask rather than the typical domino mask like the other human lanterns. Just felt it appropriate and different.

Thoughts, opinions?

An experienced Shinobi with the power of Green Lanterns Light? 
That guy would be unbeatable! Imagine Shikamaru would get his hands on one of those rings!

An alternative GL costume design for maybe one of the Earth based Lanterns. Simon Baz, perhaps?

It looks awesome! But tbh I think a hood would've been better instead of that hairstyle. The hair looked like a hood to me for a minute lol. But yeah add a hood and you'd have the finishing touch to this already amazing work of art.

Awesome! This is really cool! Although I'm not sure about the scarf... but it's still cool! I'd like to see if you could come up with some Ninja Lanterns for the other Corps as well.

The only thing I am not that keen on/modify in my story are the headband and the scarf. These are mainly my opinions for the story's sake though not a shot at your art which again is some of the best I have seen on this website in a very long time.

Excuse me good sir. I am currently writing my first fanfiction which just so happens to be a Naruto/Young Justice crossover which in this case has Naruto joining the Green Lantern Corps. I was wondering if it would be possible to you use your beautiful artwork as the uniform for Naruto. I guarantee you will receive full credit for the for the uniform in my story. If you do give me permission would it be possible to give a detail explanation of the outfit? Thank you for reading my message.

I really like it. Love the entire costume. Especially the upper body region (the head, the chest, and the design of the logo). And by the way, the scarf was a nice touch

This is amazing, and I agree they should really put a young Kyle Rayner in the Young Justice cartoon it would make my life worth living.

Seriously. Heck at this point I'll settle for a new episode. Long overdue there.

But yeah if they added him, imagine all the great arguments between him and Wally. Plus, it seems the only piece missing from making it a full mini-league on the show is a Lantern Jr.

Thanks girl for stopping by and giving me a very kind and thoughtful comment. Its much appreciated. :D

Yeah that'd be nice too.

I'd love to see some Flash Lantern thing going on! Considering how close they're mentors are I'm sure they'd be at each other troughs most of the time!

Think nothing of it

yeah I kinda feel you on the hair part. I'm thinking about redoing that just because the more I see it the more I keep thinking I was WAY to inspired by Trunks....again. lol.

but I'm glad you like how the rest turned out. Was kinda tired to seeing a bunch of armored concepts of GL, when the powers granted by the ring kinda make such a thing superfluous ya know?

thanks again!
