justice league odyssey 1 cover by nebezial justice league odyssey 1 cover by nebezial
a cover for a book i'm drawing for dc atm. they start publishing ina  few months i think. 

anyhow, it's about a justice league team in space exploring uncharted lands fighting stuff, all around big space opera fun stuff.

team consists of cyborg, green lantern jessica cruz, starfire, azrael, and a younger version of darkseid. (there is a reason for the last one, both in why he is young and why he is here)

young part is something that's a part of current wonder woman storyline.

anyhow, yeah. that's that. book is written by Joshua williamson, drawn by me.

What amazes me is that all five have unique energy/particle effects. All five are visually distinct and alive, perfectly balanced on one page. In a battle, you could tell who's shooting what just by the way the beams or blasts are drawn. That's excellent visual storytelling.

The idea of a young Darkseid helping the good guys is so dumb that it wraps around to cool again.

I love it.

I can see that too, but he's not old and decrepit enough. He's so big and built here all I can see is Ronan, heh.

I'd argue that the cracks on his face can easlity pass as wrinkles, but the build is indeed reminiscent of Ronan.

I understand all the omega symbol pattern repeating itself all over the design, but I find that hoodie too weird :|
Everything else looks amazing as always :squee:, but for me, Darkside looks like a nun to me :|

That's the funny thing with Darkseid. He's usually worn a hood or helmet of some kind since his creation, but he's always been so big that it never really stood out (in fact his face is usually poking out of it). So it is kind of funny seeing a young Darkseid with his old wardrobe too big on him.

Was reading IGN the other day, they were talking about this comic, and I about flipped when I saw you were doing the art. Been waiting to see the cover, and it does not disappoint! So glad you get to work for them, well deserved man!

Looks cool, I'll have to check it out.  I love Starfie and am happy to see she is wearing clothes  :)
I like sexy but her outfit when the DC revamped was just stupid.  Hope they got a better story for her too.  I feel like they missed who she was in the original series.  I know they were revamping everyone but I hated what they did with her.

:icongeneralkarn:

What about her origin did you hate?
Reply
:iconsweetchastity:
SweetChastity Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2018
In the first series she wore less clothing because she absorbed the suns rays through her skin to fly and power her bolts.  The new outfit was full legs up to mid-thighs and a turtle neck that covered her collar bones and shoulder pads.  Her breasts had only enough to cover them and nothing that actually looked like it could fight gravity to keep those puppies up, plus bikini briefs.  I love sexy but in a practical sense her vital organs are not protected and if she's gonna absorb the suns rays her legs are long and have lots of skin to absorb them. 

In the original series she didn't seem like she knew it was sexy the way she was, that was her natural state.  In the new DC she looks like she looks cheap and trampy.  If they could explain her costume from a practical point of view I could accept it but then her actions, like she asking one guy to sleep with her when she hardly knows him, make her seem like a tart and that she dresses that way only for sexuality. 

I know comics are geared towards young men and making the women sexy and possibly attainable is good for sales but it felt like they took her from an alien who's nature is emotional based and uncomplicated to one who would just sleep with anyone to avoid answering a question.  Her initial sexually was 'I love you or I really like you so let's express that intimately' to 'I don't like this line of questioning.  Look at my breasts and have sex with me.'  I know that they were supposedly going to explain her actions later in the series but I couldn't get past the vulgarity to learn it. 

Now if she was a new character acting and dressing that way it wouldn't bother me (because there are all types of beautiful women in the world) but her initial character was one that was sweet, passionate and loving who expressed her love in the ways that felt natural to her.  So seeing her depicted this way upset me.

Very well said to answer your questions she wore the little clothing because we'll most of the people on her planet were basically almost nude so she didn't really care to much. As for sleeping for Roy Harper aka Arsenal she did actually love him and he did love her and they were fairly faithful to one another during the series.

She came to love him but was she in love with him when she first met him?  It's cool they had a good relationship.  I remember from the first series how comfortable Kory was being naked.  Is the current Starfire the same one from the Red Hood series?  Did she just transition over to Justice?

It's hard to say if she fell in love at spot (most of the time those things are rare). She is for the most part but like any character sometimes she can be written differently. Sadly some tend to write her as the dumb naive version from TV (why they do this is beyond me).

I liked how in the first series she told Dick that he was treating her like she was stupid but she was just as intelligent and as well educated as any of them, its just our Earth customs she didn't understand.

Yeah its just some writers might go to the extreme as in she might take metaphors to literal (think Drax from the MCU).
