I always thought that this last name referred to the fact that he's Left-Handed...

He's got Namor and Zod on the run for most extreme widow's peak.

Sinestro is the exact opposite of a Green Lantern.

Did you base the face on Hugo Weaving? He's got a similar bone structure.

This looks just like the credit tag at the end of the GL movie.

Oh, wait, did I spoil that?
Spider-boyN2Jesus Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
Sweet! I love the texture of his suit! Also, his face looks nice and evil, too! By far the best Sinestro design I've ever seen!

lol about his name, indeed
VictorTran Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013
Kneel before...uh Sinestro ? :D (Big Grin) 
TFSakon Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013
It is a good name.
eldracm Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
He looks like Zod, from the Superman 2, after getting a dodgy spray tan... I like it.

And I always thought the name was a nod to him being a rarity in most comics, a left handed person.
MatiasSoto Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm guessing it was deliberate, since "Sinister" means "Left" in Latin

One of the characters from the one of the GL Annuals points this out, about his name.

I'm totally with you on this one!... Names man!
It's the parents' fault I think!
It never crossed their minds!
If your last name is McEvil... Change it! Don't go naming the kid Sinister or Gargan... and please don't encourage him to go into medicine! Simple advices that would avert the disaster of Dr. Sinister McEvil!

- Hello... I'm Fatal Desease... let's shake hands!
- Eh.. noooo thank you!

If names predict your job...what happened with Guy Gardner...?
Bonzulac Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
It's not the name that turned him evil; he's embittered by having disproportionately large legs and relatively tiny feet.

Birth Announcement: Mr. & Mrs. Jones would like to welcome their son, Thaal Sinestro, into the world as of August 1961. Sinestro will no doubt take after his father who is the veterinarian that single-handedly saved all the Pandas from extinction, volunteers at homeless shelters 4 times a week, and was actually sainted last week, or his mother who has recently refused to ascend into a higher plane of existence to help other achieve nirvana on Earth. "We will raise Sinestro to be the kind, gentle, humble soul just as we have devoted our lives to achieving," said Sinestro's parents. They added: "Just so you know, if he turns evil, he's totally adopted."

Are you going to do the leader of the Red lanterns?
ImpulseAi Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
Sinestro, why did you go evil? There was no hint at all! You used to make the best pink cupcakes ever!

wow! excelent work :)
annoyinglizardvoice Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
Interesting pic.
Sinestro is actually a variation on the Latin word for left-handed.
PyroJohn19 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
He seems a little to dark for yellow, almost orange.
MangaNut01 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I just think it was really neat that his role in the whole of the first movie was good guy. It seems like every Green Lantern thing they make, Sinestro is the bad guy. It was nice to see him get his time and his whole decision process/mindset for turning into the Yellow Lantern rather than just getting the "backstory sequence". Really excellent drawing. Also, side trivia. I watched Green Lantern and John Carter back to back and when I hear the Thern's (Matai Shang's) voice I turned to my father and said "hey, that's Sinestro!" He didn't believe me, so we bet a nickel on it and looked at the credits for both movies and I won!!!!
rurounitriv Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I always wondered if he was left-handed... ;)
DarkKnightJRK Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Well, from his perspective, he IS saving the universe--it's just in a way that most people don't like...
Ianuchu Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012
that's from Thor, right?
Ritsulquiorra Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
...Sinestro...? He's DC, not Marvel... he's an enemy of Green Lanturn. x'3 His power ring is yellow though, and it's fueled differently than the green ones... but I'm only slightly familiar with him, so I can recognize him but don't know a lot about him as a character...
Ianuchu Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
Well, I actually know it's from green lantern, I was just joking, but what you told me was very educating. I know the bare minimum about green lantern.
Ritsulquiorra Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012
Ahh. x'3 Well, apparently green is powered by will and yellow is powered by fear... fear constricts your will so it's a Green Lanturn's weakness. (I know now since I discussed this with my friends yesterday, lol... x'3)
It's quite interesting actually. I'm not really into the green lanturn comics too much myself buuut... if you wiki green lanturn then look up the emotional spectrum, it'll tell you about all the colours and what their powers are. x'3 Pretty interesting.
Ianuchu Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
Well, I don't much care for superheroes other than batman :P but that sounds interesting.
