By 'drunken rantings' I'm assuming you weren't really in a positive, truly consious state of mind? I can only hope so.

If you wish for us to ignore what was said before, I think we should listen. This is after all, your thread. You call the shots.

On a lighter note, however, do you think it possible to keep up the fantastic artwork until you decide to leave? (In your own style; I'm sure that would please many people to no end) If you don't want to, that's fine as well, but there are PEELers here who love your artwork, and would truly apreciate the contribution.

Gracias, amigo.

I hate it when people express concern. It's embarassing.

Anyway...

I did the New Justice Team before in a rather bright manner. This time I tried to take them on a more gritty angle, reminiscent (I hope) to Frank Millar's take on Batman in 'The Dark Knight Returns' back in the 80s, or possibly Todd McFarlane's work on the bleak early-90s Spider-Man and subsequent cult favourite 'Spawn'.
The NJT are a little too brightly coloured for the doom and gloom idea to be conveyed with complete effectiveness, plus my own rather limited colouring capacity makes good shadowing difficult (I cell-shade). But they still look fairly dark here; skulking in an alleyway, looking nasty and/or guilty, I tried to capture the meanness of 80's superhero comicbooks as well as the moral ambiguity of the vigilante caste (Read Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel 'Watchmen', quickly now before the movie gets made). I know the episode, 'Less than Hero' was more a parody of Silver-Age comics than these modern examples, but those moral issues were still raised in an amusing fashion, especially at the end when the 'superhero' archetype is shown to to be self-glorifying, self-serving, and often problematic to society at large (again, read 'Watchmen', the source of my signature). Sure, Fry, Leela, and Bender sure as hell aren't Rorschach, Silk Spectre, and Dr Manhattan, but I am amused by juxtaposing their inherent comedic personas into a dark and serious framework.

As you can tell, I'm a comic-book buff.

So... here it is, The New Justice Team Returns, and for now so do I:

In time I may try to adapt this one and my previous New Justice Team pic into mock comic-book covers.
Come to think of it, Bongo might want to hire me to oversee a NJT spinoff from the regular Futurama line, in the same way as Bartman and Radioactive Man have their own comics.

C'mon!! Hire me!! If you don't, I'll smash up your car!

Very nice pic indeed. Not quite so sure on the background, the bricks seem quite mini but that is a small thing.

Now let's see Fry or Bender as Spider Jerusalem :P

Photoshop brick texture, I've used it a couple of times... it starts looking a bit dodgy if you make the bricks too large, but is great for distant buildings.

Compared to the alternative of drawing individual bricks (and I've talked to a guy on my uni course that's spent 6 hours individually doing lego bricks in illustrator, only for the tutor to hate his design) it gives roughly the same kind of background effect but in 6 minutes rather than hours. It's always reasonable to compromise on the background anyway, the focal point is always going to be the characters.

Anyway, nice job on the composition and character poses, coldy. I like  smile

I'm glad you all like it, considering seven unskilled labourers died during construction.

KKBF: The tattered ends of Captain Yesterday's cape are to make him appear reminiscent to Batman.

Wu, Zmithy - I agree on the bricks, though that was as large as the textureizer would let me make them. In retrospect I should maybe have shrunk the picture before applying the background fill, but meh. I'm not a background kinda guy.

About the two most recently posted pictures:

New NJT - You have definitely made it to present the NJT more dark, more shadowy here ... My first impression was "Fallen heros who have to win back their good reputation", which perfectly matches to the end of "Less Than Heros". And there's already lots of conflict potential indicated: For example, what would Leela once again make to wear those clothes, now that the Zookeeper knows her identity (and probably Fry's and Bender's too) ...
Oh, and I really like the shadowing on this picture, especially on the capes.

Motorbikelove
Leela. A motorbike. A gun. Dark leatherclothes. A cool sunglass. Whow!
There's nothing that I don't like of this artwork! Seriously, is this a late Christmas present for me? For I really like it!

And, do not worry about the handlebars. There are about ... maybe five artists on the forums who can draw a motorbike as good as this one, and most of them do not post regulary here anymore. So, if you wouldn't tell us, most of us would probably accept the motorbike just like it us, not noticing if anything isn't drawn that exactly as it might could be. (At least that is true about me.)

I am quietly hoping for a sequel to Less than Hero in the new series.

Well, I'm happy you like the bike pic. I've drawn maybe three motorbikes in my whole life... I find them even harder to draw than horses... but slightly easier to ride.

The LeatherLeela was a personal request from me that coldy so graciously delivered.  I make no bones about it - I like tough women and a leather clad chick (no offence, TLL) is one of the sexiest things in the world to me.

When Kelly and I got married, we had two weddings - the 'family' wedding, complete with tux and white wedding dress on Friday afternoon, and a honest to God biker wedding the next day.  The biker wedding made the front page of the 'Local News' section on The State Newspaper the next day.  Our 'real' wedding had 34 people in it (Bride, Groom, family, guests and Preacher); the biker wedding had 100+ Southern Vikings - we were married by a Cherokee Indian Medicine Man and the wedding precession through Lexington, SC had over 130 bikes - all Harleys.  The reception was held inside and outside the Southern Vikings Clubhouse (a converted barn with a wet bar).  Several kegs of beer were drunk that night, along with a very sizable bar.  This was a true celebration and it was treated as such.

Kelly was dressed in the tightest leather pants she could find, complete with unGodly high heeled leather shoes, a black lace sleaveless leotard with a leather vest (no bra - if you looked just hard enough, well, you know what you could see).  She looked so much sexier (to me) dressed that way than in her wedding dress.  The music being played was Metallica, Van Halen, Joan Jett and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Instead of China and other crap we never use, the club gave us Wal-Mart and Target gift certificates for wedding presents.

God, that was a rush.  She and I paid 5 grand for our 'real' wedding and the Southern Vikings paid for our entire wedding, inclding the President's girlfriend getting Kelly her 'wedding dress'.  These guys weren't the prettiest or most Politically Correct people in the world, but they were my friends and they all treated Kelly like she was a Princess that day.  She has never forgotten either wedding, but the biker wedding means much more to her.

Thank you, coldy, for honoring my request.  I freely admit to having something of a fetish for women in leather.  You have now made Leela into a lustworthy object.

BTW, coldy - don't let the guys in the Politics forum get under your skin.  Everybody has opinions - some of yours and mine clash, but at least we're mature enough to get along.  I'm glad to have you in out little 'pseudo-art forum'.

And again, thanks for Leather Leela.

Was not offended. Seriously why should I be offended by tough  / leather clad women? I mean, there is a reason why - in my opinion - the best of pride parades are the dykes on bykes.

Though, I better shut up now, before people start to think ... whatever ... about me.  roll eyes

Cool pics, the biker one reminds me of a bit of the Matrix, Leela as Trinity and Fry as a unfreed Neo. It looks wicked, and the harley bike, I want one! I love motor bikes and I intend to get a license as soon as I'm old enough, Harleys rule!

Friends, turtles, fans, fellow PEELer and PEELettes,

I think that this one moment, an event truely full of creativity and cuteness ...

*wipes away single tear from eye*

... will be worth a speach, to honour this artwork that will once be known even in far away worlds ...

*reads through a prepared speech, crumples up the document and throws it away over her shoulder*

Instead of this, I feel like saying this:

 love w00000000000000000!!!1! Yay!  love

Thank you.
