DCnU Justice League 2011 by guinnessyde DCnU Justice League 2011 by guinnessyde
With all the renditions I've done based on DC's relaunch in the fall, this one was inevitable. I present my version of Justice League!

First of all, the layout isn't anything original. This looks exactly like a hundred group attack shots I've done. But sometimes the typical works. I also love paying homage to Garcia-Lopez iconic Justice League marketing group shots.

Also, a lot of cheats with this one since we've only seen a handful of these redesigns. Even basing it on Jim Lee's JL cover, it's still hard to do an interpretation, especially with Cyborgs new look. So I applied heavy shadows in parts and created new detail in others.

But another fun Justice League piece to put together. And if you've been living under the proverbial rock: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg.

Sigh, I like Cyborg as a character and there's no reason he can't be on the Justice League but did they really have to replace Martian Manhunter? Couldn't they have just made the founders 8 instead of 7 if they wanted Cyborg as a founder?

Manhunter was one of the most consistent members of the league, he was a goddamn icon.

Awesome picture, and, I'd definitely like to thank you for putting The Flash in the forefront!
I cannot tell you how many JLA shots I've seen with Superman and Batman (the most popular ones, I guess) in the forefront, with the Fastest Man Alive bringing up the REAR! As a Flash fan (and, really a fan of superspeed, in general, as it is my second favorite superpower), that sort of thing has always bugged me.
Super work!

Thanks! No brainer, really. In additional to being very cool, the guy who runs fast should be ahead of everyone else in an attack shot. But the composition all depends. When just posing and standing around in a group shot, I consider color and form balance and character relationships, which makes me very anal.

You know what's funny? DC's trying to be all modern with their new frou-frou costumes but despite all that the JLA still looks like an artifact from the '60s. We've got ONE black guy and one woman... the rest are white, straight men. What's up with that? I mean, they really couldn't have had at least ONE more woman on the League. Compared to Justice League Dark and Justice League International, this new line-up seems practically medieval.

Now onto your art. It is fan-freakin'-tastic. It's kind of like what would happen if you took Aaron Lopresti's art and merged it with Cliff Chiang's. It's fabulous! This is such a dynamic piece and all the characters are posed excellently. In my mind, Wondy is the star of the piece. She's just looking so gorgeous.

(And OMG Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez is a GOD!! I love his art work he did for all those products)

Yeah, I think out of all the characters, I always have to keep in mind all of Wonder Woman's aspects: beauty, brains, braun. If I miss any of those, she just looks like a hot girl in costume. Although, I don't know if you've seen the other Jim Lee art (released by Toon Tumblers via their Facebook), the new JL will have more women, although I believe Cyborg and Firestorm (who is still 50% white) will be the only other "diversified" members. But we'll see in a couple of months...

I am flattered that you would compare to very accomplished artists. Thank you!

Yep. Saw that one. Although, the other women were in the side panels so not sure how important they'll be. Who was in it anyway? I think Mera was there.... and Zealot, right? Can't remember. Lol. To me it just seems like we're going back to the early-'90s when Jim Lee was still relevant and designed costumes that were stylish at the time.

I really like how you handled Wonder Woman's star pattern.

Deformed robot guy is no stand-in for Martian Manhunter, though.

Thanks, but I'm sure I just copied how the pattern was from the original design. And agreed, no one can stand in for MM. Although they can easily coexist in the same team.

Still Im curious why they decided 2 keep Hal's gloves white, looks off to me, same applies 2 Barry's boots, always thought it'd look better matching his gloves... lol... sorry nerd OCD... Not 2 mention Aquaman, his costume look exactly the same, they could have at least tried 2 make it look good, oh well, like I said before ur art is just incredible man!

I'm afraid not. Just a fan like many of you. But I appreciate the love, you and the rest of the commenters have been overwhelmingly flattering. If you haven't seen yet, there's a new Jim Lee JL shot making the rounds (with the rest of the roster flanking them). If you aren't nuts about the outfit, then the amount of visible detail in that piece will certainly turn you off.

Oh, here it is: [link]

Thanks! I'm guessing Barry Allen based on DCs desire to streamline, but really it's just a guess. Very little or no information has been given outside of the few images and teasers we've already seen. I'll be as surprised as you will be, I suppose.

Do you think this whole reboot is a good idea?
Reply

guinnessyde Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Professional General Artist
I think the IDEA of it is a great idea. And I actually like that they are going through with it. Time will tell (in a couple of months, to be exact) if I actually love or hate it. Like I said on my previous deviation postings, at some point, I have to trust the caretakers of these characters and hope that they take them in a progressive direction.

So, short answer is a cautious YES, if that's acceptable.

It just vexes me to see so much story and history gone
Reply
:iconguinnessyde:
guinnessyde Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Professional General Artist
I think "gone" may be an overreaction. At no point do they state a complete wipe of everything. Superman's history has been tweaked for a "modern" audience many times, just imagine this on a larger scope. John Byrne's Superman revision is my favorite, and it was a large departure from his earlier mythos and it worked, at least initially. So they are gonna do this whether we like it or not.

Give it a chance. If the first issue of whatever you pickup vexes, then you drop 'em, like I would.

I'm sure they've had this cooking for a while, even during the production of Superman: SO. That was a fun read, but I'm still sticking with Byrne's MOS as my fave Supes origin. Again, we don't know. Maybe Johns' and Frank's origin will stick. I honestly know as much as you, so we're both speculating.
