Ultimate JLA by GavinMichelli Ultimate JLA by GavinMichelli
Here's something that I was saving as a sketchbook exclusive...buuuuuuut, since no one has been buying the sketchbook, I said screw it and I'm posting it. Some of these are old, some you've already seen, some are a little newer. ALL were done before the DCnU relaunch, so if I had known that was going to happen, I may not have done these at all. I'm actually not a huge fan of messing too much with classic costumes; this was more or less a character design exercise.

Oh, BTW...buy my art book!!! [link]

Diana is just hell sexy! Love the outfit. Martian Manhunter looks great too. Strangely I think he look more human like that than when he takes his other form.

His other form never made a bit of sense to me. He turns from a green Martian into...a different looking green Martian? Why not just turn into something that looks human?

Nice! I like that you put Martian Manhunter in the trenchcoat. There aren't enough references to his old John Jones alias!

Thanks! It just kinda suits him, right? He had a trench coat in Smallville, even though he never showed his green skin in it. The cape is nice, but I think something less grandiose suits the character a little better.

Yeah. Definitely suits him. I was thinking about doing my own version of Martian Manhunter as well, and wanted to throw in a lot of references to the John Jones alias.

Heh, you're not the first person to say that. I did a Batman, but I didn't really like how he came out, so I left him out of the pic.

Thanks, man! LOL, I've got to tell you...I was sketching Ankhorian at NOLA comic con (I didn't like the way he was coming along on the computer, so I was working out some kinks on paper), and EVERYBODY stopped and asked questions about him. Nobody knew what the hell to make of this guy, hahaha! The more I explained about the what the final image would look like, the more confused they got! It was pretty awesome :D

Oh, I think this series is pretty much done ;) The newest drawing in the set is like a year old. I was just holding on to these, and decided that now would be a good time to post the whole set.

Y'know, I did a Batman, but I thought it was fairly lame, so I didn't include him. I guess I don't have much to say about Batman's look. Honestly, I think he looks perfect in the Arkham Asylum games.

I suppose.. Even still. I'd still be interested to see what you came up with if you ever feel like posted it. I'm sure it's still awesome.

Not too bad. But not good either. LOL It's hard to get people to be interested in or pay their money for something that's not from the main companies. :( But ya gotta start somewhere. :D
