And also keep in mind, this is NOT official concept art. Theres someone at Warner who does an amazing job with character designs for the show (I was told its an entire team of people) so default to them for real official show art.
This is just me puttering around with ideas. This work isnt intended for real use and is, again me just messing around
Unlike my first Green Lantern concept, this one is NOT using my own style of art. Instead I used the same style used in the Young Justice tv show to make a fully realized teenage version of Kyle Rayner that would fit in the show's universe continuity.
I said it once before, those kids could use a kid Lantern to fill out the roster
The design of his uniform is was heavily influenced by the first one he used in the comics (the coolest one IMO), with a few aspects of some of his newer ones. I also used the same kind of design philosophy of the other character's costumes- seams and padded elements, along with a few spots of exegerrated scale.
This was an incredibly difficult process, since I had to essentially toss out my own art style and follow another - one that is far simpler in detail than I'm used to. But overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Whats everyone think?
Sure it had some flare to it, but this... This design says "The most powerful weapon in the universe chose me to bear it in defense of this world."
It has some manga-ish flare to it (In the comics Kyle once told a villain "I'm your worst nightmare. A MANGA NUT WITH A POWER RING!") but on the whole it's streamlined showing the rather point A to point B directness of someone who's powers are fueled by will.
I will admit that I did like the fact in the comics that Kyle wore an armored mask (Broken noses are very distracting) and his forearm and hand were armored to protect his hands (where he kept his weapon). So I approve of you doing that as well in this drawing.
Hey! Your work is more than fantastic! I’m dropping this comment in the hope that you might be interested in either working on a one of two projects related to the CW’s Arrow/Flash I’m doing: “Project Green Lantern” and/or “Project Crisis” and/or “Project Prey” or if you’d be willing to do fan-art for my website/Facebook page, “The Arrowverse” which has a growing audience of 56,000 fans. If you would be interested and willing, shoot me an email at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
I'm Alex Desoto.
I have seen this over and over again.
I must say, I'm impressed by this.
I what Danny Phantom would look like if he was in Young Justice.
Upper torso's fine btw.
I assume that given the possibility he's a future YJ character, they'll probably tweak his background so he becomes "Ion" first instead of a GL (regardless if he actually gets the Ion entity, he could just be a kid with a ring trying to sound cool). Since Donna Troy isn't in this version of Titans/YJ, I assume that when Kyle appears he goes after Cassie too, which would be nice (Though introducing Donna would also be cool, if they decide to blow up the roster, which could actually happen considering Season 2s nearly "JL Unlimited"-like roster).
Anyway, again, great idea.
...I know only one who'll never give up on me, GOD.
BTW Sinestro once called Kyle Hal's side kick so......>u<
