JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON 2 EARTHS - CAPTAIN SUPER by Jerome-K-Moore JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON 2 EARTHS - CAPTAIN SUPER by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Animation, Character Design, JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS, Captain Super. Pencil, cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

It was my challenge to design characters for animation in a style closely matching that of my friend, Phil Bourassa, the lead designer on this show.

On an alternate Earth, versions of our heroes are twisted and villainous. The Marvel Family has its dark counterpart in The Super Family, henchmen for Superwoman. They are endowed with their formidable abilities to serve her evil whims. I worked from designs submitted by Alex Ross, and Bruce Timm. Once a more realistic direction was chosen, Phil Bourassa and I came up with this rendition, preserving enough exaggerated cartoon elements to keep things interesting. The character is both comical and intimidating at the same time.

* In the final screen version, it's clear from the costume color scheme that the producers chose to cleverly allude to Black Adam. However, in my own personal revision here, I wanted to go another way, back toward a dark, skewed, "mirror-universe" Marvel Family color scheme.

*** 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.

Awesome! I loved JLA.
It's one of the comics I learned how to read with growing up. Not to mention,
You had all of the characters in one comic for the price of one.

Dude, YOU should care. It's not just about respecting the hard work of other artists, and honoring their rights. It's about having SELF-respect, not misrepresenting yourself with artwork you never made. Swiping another person's art, and merely changing a detail or color here and there, and then re-posting it as if it were your own is the lamest sort of game ever. It's not creative at all. Honestly, that's the actions of a low-life wannabe. Don't you aspire to be better than THAT? What energy you put into thinking up alternate identities, characters, and worlds might be better applied to studying hard, and practicing to draw on a level good enough to represent yourself as creative all on your own. Claiming that you don't have the time for it is bullsh!t. If you really can't make the time to become a legitimate artist, then it's not your calling. Step off. Anyone wanting to take the stage must first have the talent, and then be EAGER to put in the hard work and the time (Usually, it's a LIFE-time.). Have some legitimate pride in yourself. Earn some real respect. It's out there waiting for you. Don't you want it?

Now, I'm generally a very nice guy. A tolerant guy. If any of this comes off as harsh, or bruising, then turn that into a positive kick in the pants. Learn from it. Down the road, you may understand that I'm only trying to help you.
So, decide what do you really want to be, and then go really BE it, honorably. Then you'll be welcome among us, or wherever it is you end up. Stop being an identity thief.

Peace.

to be honest, i don't think it's stealing because I'm not making any money off it and I'm not directly saying the outline/design is mine and was started by me, which it wasn't. So, really, it's your call
