The Superfriends WIP by werder The Superfriends WIP by werder
Here's another sketch i did, again doodling with a pencil, also drawn on bond paper.

It started with a sudden urge to draw batman, i kinda got bored sketching him and then i added superman (inspired by jae lee's take on the him), followed by wonderwoman. I was just sketching without much deep thought, i realized i was drawing the superfriends.

Then i placed the flash and the rest just followed. I was torn between hawkgirl and martian man-hunter, but i went with the martian, didn't want to work on the feathers.

This is still in the works, i'll be redrawing this over on a 11x17 art board.

This piece is simply awesome. The characters are not drawn with hard lines, but are drawn with power in each pose. The lines are not angular, but soft enough to evoke emotions and a personality to each character. I think that you've captured their essences without having to draw them in heroic poses. That's what they're supposed to be, super without having to demonstrate it.

Two thumbs up! --Jim

the Super-friends were composed of: Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder-woman, Aquaman and the wonder twins and Glick the Monkey. When you added the GL, Flash and the Martian Manhunter, thats the Justice League of America.
The only ones missing are Blue Beetle and Booster Gold
God I miss that Justice league.

grew up with the superfriends, so i just used the title, really didn't want to use JL, wanted to instill what the superfriends stand for...friendship.

And actually, in the "Challenge of the Superfriends" season (1978), Green Lantern, Flash and Hawkman _were_ regulars, while the Wonder Twins and Gleek were nowhere to be found. Unsurprisingly, what with more proper DC characters and no annoying kid ones, this tends to be the highest-regarded season. Heh. I...don't think Martian Manhunter was ever on the show--but other than that, this really isn't _that_ far off, if considering the "Challenge" lineup.

Also it's awesome, of course. :)

i was pretty young when they were airing superfriends to really have a clear recollection of who were the mainstays but i know i was right to put in those 3, i remembered watching them back them. the other problem was the station airing them mostly showed reruns jumbled up with new episodes, which confused me more.:confused:

thank you very much for the info, now i have a clearer recollection of the superfriends and why i was confused that the twins weren't in some of the episodes i've seen. :handshake:

i just placed martian man-hunter because among the members of JL, he's the friendly and calm one, thus making him (in my own view) a super friend. I am glad that you like it. ^^

Heh. Well, I'm not really an expert either--I vaguely remembered seeing it somewhat when I was a kid, too, and I have no idea _which_ seasons I saw (I probably saw reruns from earlier ones mixed in with whatever season was current for me, too). I recently got curious and looked it up a bit, and that's how I know this--I just barely read it now. I didn't actually remember it from when I was a kid. :P

Incidentally, I do reccommend you look up "Challenge of the Superfriends"--if you can tolerate camp/forgive cheap '70s Hanna Barbera animation, it's...actually kinda _cool_. Almost a proper Justice League line-up, the Legion of Doom, darker, more actiony plots than usual, no annoying kids or cutesy animals, they managed to work in some hero and also _villian_ origin stories and there was even a scene where we see a character as _themselves_, in their normal lives, for a bit. Yes, on Superfriends. Really. And then there's the episode that starts off with the entire Earth looking all wrecked and post-apocalyptic...
Yeah. Worth checking out, if you have the time. :)

Um...that couldn't've been "Challenge", 'cos I just barely finished watching that so I have a clear memory. (Gorilla Grodd was one of the main villians in that and we do see the Ape-City at some point, so, there were apes around.) But there's a LOT of this show I haven't seen yet (including two seasons I haven't even been able to find--unfortunately, one of them seems to be a highly-regarded season), so I assume the one where Wonder Woman turns into an ape is in one of those episodes. Heh. What I _have_ seen so far is Challenge, the 1977-78 season, and some of the original season from 1973. The 1977-78 one is actually kinda good two; it's got the Wonder Twins in it but the plots are pretty proper comic-booky and I especially liked the one where we (briefly!) get to see Aquaman actually, ya know, _being_ the King of Atlantis/a smidge of Atlantis itself. Really. The whole episode was kinda cool, I thought...

Oh, and there was one where they were transformed into giant monster versions of themselves? Not really apes, but primitive-looking? You might be thinking of that. There's also one where Superman becomes a vampire. Yes, SUPERMAN becomes a VAMPIRE. Gah!

I'm going to check it out, thank you very much sharing for this info. I remember an episode where wonder woman was somehow transformed into an ape, was that part of The challenge of the Superfriends? ^^;

That's looking awesome, man! Can't wait to see the finished thing! :)

There's only one thing that bugs me: Superman's pose... I don't know, Doesn't seem to fit the character, but he ended up being large enough so maybe it was the right call.
