The Ray by stratosmacca The Ray by stratosmacca
DC Comics' The Ray. The first of my series of works to try and find me lost style :)

Ray Terrill was a favorite hero of mine in the DCU back when I first got really big into comics. I've always been drawn to the teen heroes (probably because I was a teen myself when I really got hardcore into collecting, and find I can relate to them a lot more than I can the adult heroes), and the Ray was an awesome one. His costume design was fantastic-- I loved the black and gold that made up his outfit, and loved it even more when he powered up and became a sort of negative image of himself.

I haven't followed the Ray much these past couple years, but I still love the guy. I was kind of disappointed to find that he'd apparently gotten a recent costume change. My favorite will always be the original.

I'm really fascinated with the Ray and I think it's Ray Terrill's version that'll be turning up in Rebirth soon...am I right? ^^;

Still, this is a great pic of the character and it's a shame there aren't fan art's of him out there. Good job :)

This is a really nice picture. Too bad the water mark is there, its kinda distracting.

I could just about eat that linework. Its like licorice... I hate the taste of licorice, but hey. Very strong, masterful linework as usual. Nice anatomy and a really cool pose that pays a lot of compliments to The Ray. Really cool!

The Ray! I remember him only from Young Justice, but he was an awesome character in the series. I love your portrayal of the character and the nifty design background!

Oooh I love it! The black and white lineart is just striking! (please tell me you'll leave it like this! :D )
I never really read much of DC's line (Marvel girl myself), perhaps I should take a look at this series ;)

Danke, as always! :D

I'm going to leave the drawing as-is. If someone wants to take a crack at coloring it, they can, but I think I'm going to leave it in black and white, myself.
