WB Animation Character Design, JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS. Pencil, Digital color.
Here's more stuff from the "If You Blinked, You Missed It" department. A while back, for the Direct-To-Video feature, "JUSTICE LEAGUE: Crisis on Two Earths," I was asked to design several other minor level "Made Men." These are super-powered flunky bad guys who help the evil Crime Syndicate control the Earth of another dimension.
In a brief shot, a computer readout displays a roster of character groupings, each headed up by a Syndicate Boss (like Owlman, Ultraman, or Superwoman).
As usual, I decided to have a little more fun with the designs, no matter that these would only be on screen for a second or less.
So, here we have MANHAWK (a Hawkman alternate), MARY MAYHEM (an evil variation of Mary Marvel), MR. HORRIFIC (You can guess that one.), MEGAMORPHO (Too easy!), and THE SHE-BAT (a mix of Man-Bat, and The Catwoman).
Along with the designs, I made up their silly names.
I had fun with these. I hope you get a kick out of them!
*** It must be mentioned that all these character designs were done in a style inspired and approved by Lead Character Designer, Phil Bourassa.
As always, the color choices are mine, and I accept any blame. Haha!
*** At this very moment (2/22/2011), I have been informed of the sudden death of Dwayne McDuffie, the writer of this show, and creator of so many characters in the DC Universe. We are shaken and saddened here at Warner Bros. I pray for strength and comfort for his loved ones in this time of tragedy.
