WB Animation, Character Design, JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS, J'onn J'onzz as Sea Serpent. Pencil, cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

In a brief scene on a city waterfront, the Justice League makes an offensive strike against the Crime Syndicate. Upon confronting super-powered foes (including the alternate Green Arrow called The Archer), the Martian Manhunter transforms into a giant sea serpent. I had a bit of fun designing this creature, relying on ancient mythology.  These are my own color selections, and do not reflect those of the final screen version.  I hope you like it, and thanks so much for viewing!

*** At this very moment (2/22/2011), I have been informed of the sudden death of Dwayne McDuffie, the writer of this show, and creator of so many characters in the DC Universe. We are shaken and saddened here at Warner Bros. I pray for strength and comfort for his loved ones in this time of tragedy.

this big girl/guy is BEAUTIFUL. I love the way the salmon pink matches up with the blues of the main scales

Love the colors. The Capcom Monster Hunter in me wants to hunt this guy down, skin him, and use his scales for armor. But I won't, because I know its really the noble Martian Manhunter in disguise.

Which raises an interesting, nitpicky question. Would it even be possible to skin this beastie for its scales, or would it simply revert to the form of a dead Martian?

Hmm....

I reckon the Capcom Monster Hunter in you would stare, dumbfounded, down at the body, muttering a slack-jawed, "...damn..."
