Light Bright (GL) Concept by Harseik Light Bright (GL) Concept by Harseik
Mr. Pilot Eyebrows.

Sometimes my stuff leans toward semi-realism (last submission) and sometimes it looks cartoony, like this. Where's my freaking consistency?! :iconpapmingplz:

I feel real bad that I didn't consult the original design, like, at all... but I was pretty determined to create my own personal GL design - with the help of a couple of dA concepts that were floating around in my favorites. For instance, the whole green half thing came from this piece of awesome work from Zander Yurami and The Kid Lantern [link], while the idea of bringing a lot of emphasis to the ring hand came from this [link] (which is amazing and perfect and I wish I thought of it first and I tried real hard to keep myself from copying any aspect of it... though I really love the space camo idea... D: ohmygosh).

I'm sad because I forgot to make his badge glow. Actually I'm kind of sad that I forgot to make more of his costume glow in general. I always think of him as the ultimate nightlight, hence why Batman hates his guts. xD But at the same time I like this more militaristic, darker green scheme going on. Maybe he envelopes himself in an aura or something, like the way Stewart does it in the JL animated series.

I originally drew and colored a close-up of his face with his domino mask on to be included in this pic, but I really botched up his hair and only noticed at the last second, then I accidentally saved over the original, non-merged file. ;C Tears.

I definitely thought the offset badge thing was a cool idea. I felt like it brought about a policeman vibe, which is what the Corps essentially is in my eyes, albeit with a military/ambassador flair.

To explain the full mask idea, I never thought the domino mask was the greatest disguise, so during the small occasions where he has to deal with friends or the press, he has a more appropriate disguise to fall back on. That and he thinks he looks hardcore. <<; All in all, he's usually wearing the domino mask or not at all.

Do you all know who Olan Rogers is? Well, my Hal's personality has some traits based off of him, so to pay tribute I gave him Olan's amazing dimples.

:iconolanrogersplz:

As usual, I'm open for criticism regarding any design or anatomy issues, just don't judge the lineart itself. I know his left hand looks washed out. That's because I had to replace its colors at the last minute. >_o

And yes, I understand that the departure is quite drastic. I uh... hope it's not too bad.

Thanks for taking a quick look! <3

Really like this one not just for the coolness factor, but also how practical it is for covering up ones identity

I also noticed the helmet looks eerily like the Third Army drones, those guys gave me the creeps.

Been trying to think of GL costume designs for a fanfic, think I could use this for description? Everything's ideal, the helmet's the only thing I need to spoof.

Excellent design! What say we change the emblem and perhaps the colors and create an original OC from this? Perhaps you could bring him over to KING? Let's talk if you're interested... note me. :handshake:

I love the badge idea, and it's cool how the asymmetrical design really leans towards the power hand. The mask is super cool, cause seriously, it's an alien ring.
You really think that's gonna make a human culture based domino mask? NOPE FREAKY COOL ALIEN HELMET! I could easily imagine that mask/helmet being adjusted slightly for all species of intelligent beings, which adds a cool organized uniform feel to the entire concept.

I may have to stop watching you. Your awesome designs are spoiling my brain with wonderful ideas. You know how lame is feels to unintentionally subconsciously steal someone's ideas? ULTRA-LAME!

Then again, you are going to force me to think outside the box, so thank you. Actually no, thanks for nothing, CAUSE I'M A LAZY GOBBER GOOBER! STOP MAKING ME DO WORK!

Oh, totally. I'd give all the Lanterns different masks based on their physiology and tastes. And dude! That's why I draw. To inspire people. Feel free to use pieces of my ideas as long as you're striving for a new look in the end. I tend to reference other artists' concepts all the time, as the description admits. Heheh.

DO YOUR WORK, SONNY JIM.

If Green Lanterns had this sort of solid design style/characteristics in the actual comics I'd buy them all in a heartbeat. This is a modern design, nothing at all like what we're getting now. I adore the bracer/glove especially, the way they look both alien and not all at once is just really perfect for Green Lanterns. This is just lovely; you're very innovative with your choices!

Yeah, what's up with the new costumes having lines scribbled all over them? Did they all go to the same tailor?

Thank you. <3 I try to be traditional, but my originality bone gets the better of me. I don't like to copy things. :X So I redesign costumes quite a bit.

To be honest, I didn't think this was disappointing. I like it when artists take well-known characters or designs and give it their own make over. I do like the colors you used. I feel like its not cartoony and sunshine; the dark colors give off that this Hal Jordan has the potential to be serious and his life as a super hero has a dark side (noticed how I worded that; because we all know Hal, in the end, is a goof. xD). The design you did for his ring and how the light extends up his arm is really cool. I feel like that gives his ring more power or durability or something; I don't know but it looks cool either way. I always thought domino masks are just begging people to peel it back and reveal the secret identity. I'm not as fond of the full on mask but I see it as something Hal would use when he's in space or in this epic battle or... just wants to look badass for the ladies. xD But hey, at least Hal has a mask... UNLIKE CLARK. XD

Thanks! Yeah, not a big fan of the full mask either, unless I make something that looks better. Maybe he just lights up his face with an epic green light glare and that's the end of it. :B

Clark: Masks are itchy. :/

Ah, I cannot watch the video Dx
Im from germany, and here we have something stupid called "GEMA", which "oficially" prevents the fraudulent use of music online. If there is any type of music no matter what this video shows, the GEMA wont allow us to hear, they just ban it. The result: there are so many videos, AMVs and other things we cannot watch. This is frustrating ;______;

I will just read the entry in Wikipedia, if there is one
