Best idea for a Halloween Commission in the history of EVER!

070829 wanted me to draw his white tiger character, Rikhard as a Blue Lantern. My husband is a Green Lantern Fantard (or as I call him... a "Lantard"), so I do know a bit about the series through him.

I'm not really into the whole flights and tights genre, but I do love me some Green Lantern stories, myself. (Though Guy Gardeneer can go f--- himself, IMO).

Rikhard's lantern outfit is based on a combination of Brother Warth (the blue elephant like creature in the Blue Lantern Corps) and a Taoist priest per the request of the client.

This gives me an idea for my personal Halloween picture. I may have to work on that tonight!

Tools Used: Mechanical Pencil, Paper, Scanner, Photoshop versions 6 & CS4, Paint Tool Sai
Time Taken: 4 Hours
Soundtrack: "Shine the Light" - FoxAmoore

Nice work, looking fly.

By the way, here's something I've thought up on the spot. It's on Rikhard's perspective on a death in his family:

>>>>>>>>>>

"Do not disquiet yourself. I know it is going to be difficult without me. You are the future, and you should be prepared to do everything to make it real. The past is gone, and I am about to go with it. All will be well, Rikhard Laakkonen. There is no looking back."
My grandfather passed away later that night. Those fifteen-odd years I spent with Paavo seem like forever now...

I really like the dynamic pose in this drawing. It makes it look so interesting, just like the character is leaping out of the earth, and it makes the character look so powerful, too.
The colors that you used also fit well together.
Great work! :clap:
