Kyle Rayner Concept V3 -Young Justice by Jarein Kyle Rayner Concept V3 -Young Justice by Jarein
Well playing around with my own Lantern, got me thinking about some of my old Lantern artwork, and I had the itch to try something....unique....with one of them....again :D

To be honest, I felt like I improved alot in my style in the last couple months, and wanted to enhance some old concept art.

This is based on my last Rayner Lantern concept, but a I modified a few colors, and design elements. Ditched the goggles in favor of a domino mask, shrank the lantern on the pants a bit, and changed all the colors of the upper half of his attire. A couple new additions include a streak of neon green in his hair, and a tattoo of a lantern on his arm. I thought these elements added to the artistic theme of the design.

Thoughts? Comments?

It's a very cool design and i dig it since it emphasizes the character's relative youth and creativity, since he's an artist. I always thought his costume before War of The Lanterns and Brightest Day/Blackest Night didn't do much, design wise, since it was just a mash up of Zero Hour classic Kyle and the Jim Lee design.

The colors remind me of Zero Hour Kyle, to be honest.

WHY AM I NOT FUNDING THIS?!?! lol I am so sad that young justice canceled. I was really excited for the third season.

Hey Jarein, would it be possible to request that you mock up a Blue Lantern version of this image? :3
Worgen Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
I actually was given permission to use another Green Lantern design in a Young Justice RP that sadly didn't get off the ground. Put a lot of hard work into building him up from practically nothing, too. But if there's ever a reboot of some sort I would absolutely love to use your interpretation - specifically THIS interpretation - of Kyle as the character that I'd play. Would that be alright with you? If it comes to fruition I promise I'll do my best to keep you updated as to what all happens with him. ^_^
Jarein Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
yeah thats fine with me. I'm flattered you thought this was a design worth using for your RP. good luck with everything if a reboot ever goes through. cheers man

Out of curiosity, what's your take on this younger Rayner's background story? I'd have to think that it'd need to be changed around some if he's to be the same age as the older members of YJ like Dick and Barbara.

My favorite Lantern for my right now favorite show? All I can say is ya do Kyle Rayner justice. And I especially like the newly added tattoo on the artist. So in my opinion? 10/10 and two thumbs up!

Really enjoy elements to this design! Pants are great, shoes nice clean design, Green in hair subtle, domino mask is a fun. I would rework the gauntlet sleeves, they dont seem as thought out as other areas of your design. I like the charcoal vest but vest AND scarf seems a bit too hipster for my taste. Not really a fan of the scarf tho it would lack without the color there.

Just some thoughts. Great design though!

very nice design! we can clearly see the improvement! i really like the hair with that green shade and the domino fits better imo. I like the tattoo even if i feel it a bit too "shadowy" but it's probably just me :p and the pointed finger i don't know why i feel the knuckle too high (i tried to point the way he does to see how was my knuckle, but no matter how i point and the angle i look at it, it's always my middle finger's knuckle that is the highest) anyway! awesome piece of art, your designs are getting better and better!

can you do one of me?
Wyote Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
Pretty cool. I've actually been hoping they'd bring Kyle into Young Justice.

hmm i like it as a modernization of the costume that could blend with urben backdrop but as a uniform that is supose to be for basicly space police i don't think it works it's cool though good job
