JLA rebooted by rainingcrow JLA rebooted by rainingcrow
Ok, so I've been going about this one character at a time. I did this in 2011, but I recently went back and revised my sketches for each of the characters and added more of them. So what I have done here is just replace the old version with the new one. I'm calling it finished at last... for now

That file was lost. I do have a few of them like the big three posted on here individually. One day when I have a tablet, I will be improving upon the artwork itself with these same designs

I'm so sorry to hear that and I wish you the best of luck with that fix. I think these redesigns are pretty brilliant. It's obvious that you and I think in pretty similar terms about the world's greatest detective which is one of the few I can see clearly on your page! By the way as one artist to another I could desperately use a critique from someone which is as much of a fan of the DC Comics universe as myself. Would you mind taking a look at my Batman Arkanjel concepts and commenting on what you think of them? I need a second opinion!

I'm looking through several of your shots right now. Most of these are definitely going in my favorites listing. Keep up the fantastic work you do here.
By the way a little spoiled for a few plot developments. The character Martian Manhunter Pheros will be available sometime in July. I'm really working hard on this Justice Legionaire! I really need to get back to other members of my two hero teams Justice Legion A(Justice League/Avengers Combination) and Observers User Crusaders/Infinite Gamer(Justice Society/Defenders Combination). I will keep everyone updated as the designs develop. I also may finally have some basic story segments for people to read on my page too so keep watching! I've got more villains like Penguin, Anarky and particularly Bane in the works as well. And another Catwoman and Joker to bring up too.

Your combo work is a lot of fun to look at. The darkwing toon knight stuff is one of the more creative things I have seen in a long time.... and Im very interested in seeing Bane.

Thank you! I was especially proud of the Duck Knight myself! By the way I've got a new one up on the page now, Super Mario Plumber Knight Earth 371! I'll be working on his brother Luigi later this year! I'm going to try to get to Scarecrow Deimos, Anarky the Revolutionary, Greaime the Corinthian Goblyn, Bowser King of the Koopas Earth 371, Livewire Dualshock, Negaduck Toon Mobster and Bane Demonicus later this year too! I have been missing out on a few of my villains of late! Right now I'm putting the design specifications on members of the Justice Legion A and the User Crusaders(Infinite Gamer). Including Martian Manhunter Pheros, Aquaman Lanti Prime, Captain America Tribal Digital Guardian and original heroine Lady Fey Four! Look forward too what I come up with next!

never really care for his backstory...I will admit he has potential though. His costume could use some upgrading, but I would base his look off Johnny Knoxville. :)

All of these are fantastic! I don't really like the Black Canary one, but that's just personal taste, as I think it fits her. And thanks so much for taking PG seriously, as she really doesn't get enough love (well, she DOES get lots of love actually, but for very superficial reasons).

Flash is the only one I'm not fond of, I prefer the mask that most of the flash family wears. Batman's is a little.. eh. It looks more along the lines of a full-on stealth suit, not the kind of suit Bruce would be wearing on his normal crime-fighting runs. So I could see if that was supposed to be a suit for conditions where extreme stealth was required, but good design nonetheless. I love Cyborg's design, it looks less bulky then his new 52 costume, and still retains that robotic badass feel to it. Doctor Fate's costume looks good. It really has that mystical, wisened feel to it. I love Aquaman's costume. Not too crustacean, but also not incredibly similar to his normal costume(which I'm not a HUGE fan of). GL's costume is pretty neat, the Tron look to it is very good. Only downside is it looks more at home in a computer game/cyberspace then it does out in actual space fighting aliens, but that's just a minor thing and not enough to make me dislike it. My favorite though has got to be Martian Manhunter. It looks simply amazing. I love that you chose the head shape you did, and his costume kind of reminds me of the Aztecs a little bit. It really makes him look more like an actual Martian. So great job on this.

I like most of them. I think the Batman costume is a little over-complicated and flash's and Hawkwomen's helmet are just a little... I guess tacky is a good word. Other then that I love MM new design looks so sweet, and Power Girls costume dose look like it could come from the 70's, and that alone gets you points there. So, all things considering, I give it two thumbs up.

i designed her to look like a tough rock biker version of Pink. I did the fishnets over the face because It gives the idea of a mask with a hint of darkness, but without actually covering anything... Because canary doesnt really cover her face anyway.

Ok, GL=Tron=AWEOME!

I also Love the design for Flash, and I agree, NPH's voice acting of him was really good.

The thought and time put into all of this is amazing.

I love all the thought you put into these designs, and most of them are superior to what DC's coming out with. Seriously, why can't the official creators be this good?

The only redesign I don't like is Superman. Sure, his character may be hopelessly dated, but he's Superman. You can't really change him. He gets the grandfather clause.
